Note: Truth comes from God. It’s a choice one makes. To ask God to guide your life as you walk in truth is perhaps one of the wisest prayers we can petition.
“LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;”
• Pulpit: “Such a walk involves the doing of righteousness, not, of course, in absolute perfection, but with a sincere intention, and so as to have “the answer of a good conscience towards God.”
“Show me Your ways, O LORD;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.”
• Barnes:(5) “What God sees and regards as truth is true, because He sees things as they are; and when we have the divine estimate of anything, we understand what the thing is.”
“Hear my prayer, O Lord, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness.” Psalm 143:1
