7/16 Psalm 25:5

5 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.

The secular world is teaching that there are multiple truths. What may be true for you may not be true for me. However, common sense teaches us there is truth or there is none. Truth by definition can't be multiple things. Either this Scripture passage comes from the Bible, or it doesn't. Either it is inspired by God or it isn't. David was asking the LORD to lead him into God's truth. That is the only real truth. What may seem true to man is often an illusion or just plain deception. What is the LORD'S truth? Our emotions can ride a roller coaster if we fix our thoughts on what appears to be true at the moment, but what is the LORD'S truth? We should long to be led in that truth, which is to be taught by God.

When we see God's truth we learn the correct way of seeing things. It changes our attitude and our thinking. David needed this in many of his situations. And those in which he wasn't led in the Lord's truth resulted in compounded problems. The same will be true for every person.

God is our salvation from judgment, but also from wrong thinking and ignorance. That is why David was willing to wait on the Lord all day instead of running ahead with his own "good" thoughts. To be led into God's truth and taught by Him will only result in ultimate blessing and fruitfulness.

Consider: Are you running ahead of God with your own "good" ideas, or are you waiting on the LORD to show you His truth?
