Topic: Truth – The Guarantee Of Lasting Result
One of the powers of the truth is the guarantee of longevity and lasting results.
SCRIPTURE: The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment. Proverbs 12:19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One of the powers of the truth is the guarantee of longevity and lasting results.
Truth is a major force in life. One of the powers of the truth is the guarantee of longevity and lasting results. But lies on the other hand cut lives and destinies short. This is why you must avoid the way of lie.
Proverbs 12:19 says, The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
It does not matter how successful a fake man is, his success cannot last. It does not matter how prosperous a deceitful woman is, her prosperity has no future in this world and in the world to come.
Another instructive passage on this subject is Psalm 101:7:He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
If you tell lies, you will not tarry in God’s Presence – whether the lie is presenting a certificate which is not yours, changing your date of birth to get a job, arranging a false marriage to get a Green Card, inflating the price of materials officially procured in order to keep the balance of the money, etc. The Bible says that he who tells lies shall not tarry in God’s Presence. And if you can’t tarry in God’s Presence, where would you tarry? Is it in the presence of the devil? So, telling lies deprives a person of his future.
Beloved, if you want to tarry in the sight of Jehovah, you must not give room to any form of lie, exaggeration, deception and flattery. Always insist on the truth.
Remember this: One of the powers of the truth is the guarantee of longevity and lasting results.
- Avoid all forms of lies and deceit even if it is to gain an earthly advantage.
- Make up your mind to speak the truth always whatever the cost.
PRAYER: O Lord, deliver me from the lifestyle of lies and deceits. I refuse to yield my tongue as an instrument of lies, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
