Truth, Lord

For years I have carried around "Praying God's Word" by Beth Moore and I love this quote I have read it over and over. It is by Charles H. Spurgeon whom I love. If you don't have a copy of Prayer and Spiritual Warfare by him it is so worth it.

"Our Lord Jesus does not flatter us. He lets us see our cases as they are. His searching eye perceives the bare truth of things. He is "the faithful and true witness" (Rev. 3:14) who deals with us according to the rule of uprightness. Oh, seeking soul, Jesus loves you too much to flatter you. Therefore, I ask you to have such confidence in Him that, however much He may by His Word and Spirit, you may without hesitation reply, "Truth, Lord."' Charles Spurgeon

How I pray for you and for me that we would cry out "Truth, Lord." No matter the cost, truth Lord. In a world that is dominated by the prince of the air, who has been a liar from the beginning, and has no truth in him...may we cry out from the depths truth Lord!

May we walk in His truth:
Psalm 26:3 for your love is ever before me,
and I walk continually in your truth.

Find redemption in truth:

5 Into your hands I commit my spirit;
redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.

Be protected by His truth:

Psalm 40:11

11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, O LORD;
may your love and your truth always protect me.

Lord give us undivided hearts that fear Your Name.

Psalm 86:11
Teach me your way, O LORD,
and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.

Knowing that He is the Truth and the Truth shall set our weary, burdened down souls free.

Psalm 68:19
19Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

Blessed be Your Name Lord, and please Lord Truth.

That is a very good word, I've come to know a greater and deeper truth when I prayed for God to baptize me in the love of the truth. Jesus is the truth, the light, and the way. May we always desire truth more than traditions and doctrines of men. Acts is an interesting book to read, especially when you think about salvation.

Jenny I have been praying that the Truth would be revealed to those who don't know the Truth. Especially in regards to our leaders.
