A Dose of Truth

I am reading a new devotional book by Nancy Guthrie called the One Year book of Hope.
Today's reading was titled "Telling Yourself the Truth" When I struggle with doubts or fears or just life in general... I need truth... not my version of truth, not the worlds version of truth but God's truth.

"Truth soothes our fears, changes our feelings and shapes our thoughts"

Some helpful truths I read today

You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways  Psalm139:3

for all my ways are known to you Psalm 119:168b

He knows me, he knows my weaknesses...when I think about someone who knows me well it would be my husband...but God knows me even better than him..there is no hiding who I really am from God...he already knows...I find that comforting
If I rise on the wings of dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your right hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast  Psalm 139:9-10

No matter where I am or what I am going through He is there, guiding me, holding me fast

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you  Isaiah 26:3

There is peace avaliable when I focus on His truths..must reorient my thinking once again

What a wonderful means of transforming the mind! Nothing like a bath of truth to send the doubts & taunts to flight.

I need to do more of this. There is a song by Casting Crowns that says, "the voice of truth tells me a different story"...it goes on to voice the truth over us.

I need to write out some of the truth and rehearse that in my mind instead of some of the lies of the enemy.

How freeing Truth is!! I *love* where you said that you need truth...not your version, or the world's version, but God's TRUTH...SO true!! I *love* Isaiah 26:3...it's been precious to my heart recently. May the LORD help you to soak your mind in HIS Truth this day my friend.

Many Blessings to you!
