Recently I have prayed similar prayers to the one we are going to read today. Too many times as I listen to the news, I cannot tell what the truth actually is. When I hear reports about protests, politics, pandemics, people, I have to pray and ask the Lord to make it clear. One news station paints the picture with one type of brush stroke and another goes completely the opposite direction.
Who is telling the truth about where we are and where we are going?
These verses tell us to pray and He will answer us.
“I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me. Save me, Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. What will he do to you, and what more besides, you deceitful tongue? He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom bush.” Psalm 120:1-4
The Lord will take care of the lies. He will make known the truth. And the very best place to start to listen is in His Word. Open it, read it, pray through it, and look for it being fulfilled.
Thank You, Jesus, that You are Truth and we can look to You for our answers. We are safe following after You.
