Some things may be facts but not true.
The truth is: You are chosen, loved, anointed and blessed by God. You are righteous, free from sin, guilt and shame. You are royalty, the light of God and He lives in you. He loves you.
The fact may be that you lied, cursed, stole, committed sin in one way or the other, or you haven’t set foot in church in a long time. Those are facts but they aren’t the truth. The truth, not your facts, determine who you are in Christ.
Whatever your facts may be, they don’t change the TRUTH.
The only way you will know the truth about your life is when you go to the truth himself. It is amazing to think that the truth was once in flesh and walked amongst man, or that He sacrificed his life so that your facts would never be a threshold for your judgement. His name is Jesus. He is your truth
Whatever Jesus says about you is who you are. You should fix your mind on those things He calls you.
A part of Philippians 4:8 reads “…you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.…”
Your facts may be ugly, but you should see, know and remember how beautiful your truth is. Don’t waste time beating yourself up about the mistakes you have made, the things you did, the sins you committed. The Bible specifically instructs us to think about the truth.
Action Point: The more you study God’s word, the more you realize His truth about you.
