Are you familiar with John 8:32: “And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free?” Our truth is what we believe, even those things that are lies. But when we see and accept REAL TRUTH, His Truth, and if we are His disciples and hold fast to His teachings and live according to His Truth, THEN, we will know what? THE TRUTH! And then, the TRUTH shall make us free! The process of knowing Him, the process of being convicted of our own sins and turning to Him, the process of coming out of agreement with the lies we believe and coming into agreement with Truth – this is the process of freedom! It is a desire to be like Him and follow Him no matter what the cost. What happens when it is not truth but that your perception is reality?
There is never a better time in life to make a new decision. If we want to mature, we must decide what we are going to do with our own personal perception. We get to choose to not be swayed by the lies we believe (about ourselves as well as about someone else) and we get the opportunity to have a new perception. For instance, you may have witnesses something and you got an impression regarding that incident that has clouded your own perception 0r even changed your perception. You could have felt this way about a friend and then all of a sudden you think this about that same friend. It changed how you treat them, your closeness, your friendship. You think you discerned this yet…what if you are wrong? What if your response is error? You decided A and yet it was the furthest thing from B’s mind. Have you had enough respect for yourself or them to discuss it? I encourage you to consider God’s Word and then consider His Words – can you honestly say HIS perception IS your reality?
John 5:30 I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord–but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
May your today be filled with HIS life, HIS love and HIS Truth. May your decisions be free from jealous or blurred vision. May you truly hear His voice that loves and is loved and is true and like Him. May your love for yourself AND your love from others be untainted by a false perception and may unity return to your relationships so that His perception is reality.
