Today’s word …. True.
There are times in which I think that because I have read it, it is true. Or because someone I know is telling me something, it is true. Or because it is on the internet, it is true. But I think the one that scares me most is when I think that because it is in my thoughts, in MY head, well surely then, it has to be true.
But then, that is not necessarily true either.
My thoughts can go places they should not. My mind can be vividly and wildly active and my thoughts be what Scripture calls, “vain imaginings.” I am wondering if they are called that because it is vain to even think we are right all the time. Or are they vain because if He is not the originator or the center of my thoughts, they are nothing but ineffectual. Without any significance at all. Bearing no fruit.
Scripture tells me to think on whatever is true ….
And there are days in which that means I must take my own thoughts captive. Stop them dead in their tracks. Let them go no further. And begin to think on the only words that are true.
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. (Psalm 33:4, NIV)
Yes, when I open the cover and turn the pages of my Bible, His Word spoken to me, it is then that I find the only words that are true.
