Girded With Truth

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth . . . (Ephesians 6:14a)

Jesus is the truth, and He is our response to every lie spoken by the enemy. We are more than conquerors in Him, because His victory on Calvary defeated and destroyed the power of death and darkness. We walk in the light of the truth, and the falsehoods and threats of Satan have no power to terrify us any longer. So, we stand today in the freedom of the truth that is ours in Jesus Christ.

Everything that is true is not necessarily the truth. For instance, no one is good in God's sight, and we are all sinners deserving of judgment and death. Yes, that is true. But the truth is, Jesus died for me while I was still a sinner, taking the punishment I deserved and paying the price for my sin, and now I am the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21)! Jesus is the TRUTH, that is, the overcoming, super-reality in which we live. So, we can boldly come to God as His righteous children and joint heirs with Christ, having been cleansed by His precious Blood and seated with Him in heavenly places. Get into the habit of reminding yourself of these things. This is what it means to be a Christian, and nothing else.

Let’s Pray – What a tremendous blessing we enjoy in being set free from the lies that once entrapped us! We will walk before all men in the blessed assurance that our sins are forgiven and the path before us it lit with truth and grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
