"I Didn't Know That"
January 13, 2009
The sum of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous rules endures forever. Psalm 119:160
There are times when the truth seems to get a bit slippery.
That was certainly the case when the respected British Medical Journal decided to expose some common myths of medicine. And if you're wondering what kind of medical myths, they would be glad to tell you.
For example, they say,
Now, before you grab your keyboard and write a scathing reply, remember this: I'm just the messenger, not the authority.
The bottom line is we live in a world where humanity's "truth" is constantly being modified. Bombarded by uncertainty, it's not surprising when many of our friends conclude God's truth is also untrustworthy.
Far better for them to realize that the words of the psalmist are right: The sum of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous rules endures forever.
Understand, the psalmist wasn't merely making a wish; he was stating a fact.
Today, we who live on the other side of the Savior's completed story of salvation are able to see fulfilled prophecies, archaeological and historical verification, willing martyrs, and an empty tomb all bearing witness to the fact that God's Word is truth.
And that's a truth we can trust.
THE PRAYER: Dear heavenly Father, in a world where Your truth might seem no more certain than quicksand, allow me to trust You, believe Your Word, and have faith in Jesus as my Savior. When possible, may I bear witness to others: Your Word is truth. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
