Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways. Over the next 6 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day twenty-six with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a path of truth.
Walk a Path of Truth
“It gave me great joy to have some brothers come and tell about your faithfulness to the truth and how you continue to walk in the truth.”
3 John 1:3 (NIV)
How truthful are you? What would the people closest to you say in response to that question about you? It has been said that honesty is the best policy, do you agree with that? Would your actions say that you agree? Why do you think truth seems to be so elusive in today’s culture? Do you believe truth to be universal and absolute or does it depend on the situation? How do you feel about the statements of Jesus that He is truth and His Word is truth?
The apostle John writes that there is nothing that would bring him greater joy than to hear that those he had taught were walking in the truth. As you pray, ask God to help you see, and remove, any falsehoods that you have accepted as truth. Pray that those who have taught you the way of God would be filled with joy as they find you walking the path of truth. Pray that you would always view God and his Word as the absolute authority on truth. Pray that the people around you would know you as one who daily walks a path of truth.
