Proverbs 12:22 “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,/ but those who are truthful are his delight.”
Have you ever lied? How did you feel in your spirit and soul? I know, you thought you had a good reason. It was to protect the innocent or some other rationalization that sounded good at the time. However, deep down you knew the truth, but you didn’t have the courage to “speak” the truth. Maybe there was a time when you did speak the truth and you felt the peace of the Lord? You felt His presence and love.
Lord, help me always to speak the truth, no matter the cost. I praise You for being the God of truth, for You are the way, the truth, and the life.
When do you feel weak and tell lies or half-truths to those in your life? Work? Personal life?
