Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. — John 17:17 (AMPC)
Adapted from the resource Healing the Soul of a Woman – by Joyce Meyer
God’s Word is truth, and when we love it and obey it, we’re set free from things that have held us back and held us captive. Embrace the light of God’s truth; let it dispel the darkness. It can be a little difficult to look at the light if we’ve been in the dark for a long time, but if we’re willing to stick with it, we’ll adjust to the light and be able to see how much better it is than the darkness.
The Holy Spirit is always teaching us and revealing truth to us in each situation. It’s an ongoing process in our lives, one that can be beautiful and exciting. He shows us what’s right to encourage us, and shows us what’s wrong because He wants to set us free and make our lives even better. In order to do that, we need to keep our eyes open to truth, listen for His voice, be willing to repent when we’re wrong, and quickly turn back into the light.
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me to receive truth, even when it’s hard to swallow. Thank You for being faithful to guide and strengthen me so I can be free in every area of my life! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
