February 10: Knowing God – Truth

To talk with God better, we need to know Him better.

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

John 14:6

God is truth. Eleazar recognized it in Genesis 24:27. Jacob recognized it in Genesis 32:10. Jethro saw that God-fearers are men of truth Exodus 18:21.

When God revealed Himself to Moses, He declared that He was abundant in truth!

And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

Exodus 34:6

Moses declared His truth in Deuteronomy:

He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Deuteronomy 32:4

Our God is truth. But what is truth? The Englishman’s Concordance shows us that this word also is translated “verily,” and “faithful.”

The same word for Truth is used in Exodus 17:12 when Aaron and Hur were supporting Moses’ hands, so that his hands were “steady.”

We don’t build houses on unsteady surfaces, we look for solid bedrock. God is the solid bedrock, the Truth that we can build upon!

God is Truth – we can thank Him for being a constant around which we can direct our lives!
