Because Christ Is In You, The TRUTH Is In You
Having girded your loins with TRUTH
The first piece of armor for the Christian warrior is the belt of TRUTH. Jesus said, “I am . . . the truth” (John 14:6). And because Christ is in you, the TRUTH is in you. However, continuing to choose TRUTH is not always easy. Since Satan’s primary weapon is the lie, your belt of TRUTH (which holds the other pieces of body armor in place) is continually being attacked. If he can disable you in the area of TRUTH, you become as easy target for his other attacks.
You stand firm in the TRUTH by relating everything you do to the TRUTH of God’s Word. If a thought comes to mind which is not in harmony with God’s TRUTH, dismiss it. If an opportunity comes along to say or do something which compromises or conflicts with truth, avoid it. Adopt a simple rule of behaviour: IF IT’S THE TRUTH, I’M IN; IF IT’S NOT THE TRUTH, COUNT ME OUT.
When you learn to live in the TRUTH on a daily basis, you will grow to love the TRUTH because you have nothing to hide. You never have to cover up to God or anyone else; everything you do is in the light. Furthermore, when you live in the truth you dislodge the lies of Satan, the father of lies (John 8:44). Remember that if Satan can deceive you into believing a lie, he can control your life.
Jesus prayed, “I do not ask Thee to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one” (John 17:15). How? “Sanctify them in the TRUTH; Thy Word is TRUTH” (verse 17). You will only dislodge Satan’s lies in the light of God’s revelation, and not by human reasoning or research.
The only thing a Christian ever has to admit to is the TRUTH. Walking in the light and speaking the TRUTH in love may seem threatening to some. But in reality TRUTH is a liberating friend and the only path to fellowship with God.
Forgive me, Lord, for entertaining lies and walking in darkness. Give me courage to face the TRUTH and to speak the TRUTH in love.
Thank You Jesus.
