Truth



This thought came to me the other day ~ that I need to pray for the truth to be revealed. And I am praying for God to have mercy on us in our country.


Ps 25:10 -
All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

Ps 40:11 -
Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

Ps 85:10 -
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

Ps 85:11 -
Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

Ps 86:15 -
But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

Ps 91:4 -
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Pr 12:19 -
The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

Isa 26:2 -
Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

Ho 4:1 -
Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

Joh 1:14 -
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Joh 14:6 -
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 15:26 -
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

Joh 17:17 -
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

1Co 13:6 -
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

2Co 4:2 -
But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

Eph 4:25 -
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

2Ti 2:15 -
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2Th 2:13 -
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Right, and we need to trust that God is in control.

I loved reading all those verses about truth. I love the one that says "I am .........truth".

We do need to pray for God's will to be done. We certainly do not know the answers.

I heard a preacher on the radio say the other day to vote for both candidates because our country is in such a mess, that we will need both men to clean it up. He was just saying that "man" is not the answer.

I don't feel that either candidate has the answers either. We really need to hang on to God.

I love your post!

And the truth shall set you free... Thanks for the scriptures. During this time of turmoil, it's only God that can give comfort and peace. Prophecy is coming to pass and we must be grounded in the word and know what it takes to get out of here when the trumpet blows. May you have a blessed day.

Goodness, Cathy. I can't believe that our minds go in the same direction so often. I posted a poem about truth today in an American Dream post. Yes, we need to be praying like never before.
