The Truth Is Right in Front of You

A devotion on Psalm 25:5

Guide me in your truth, and teach me, For you are the God of my salvation, I wait for you all day long.
–Psalm 25:5

I recently had the opportunity to share with a group of people the reasons why God’s truth about creation and mankind’s purpose on earth are the actual truth (versus other religions and scientific theories). In a nutshell, here is what I said:

  1. God identifies Himself as the Creator and He has explained His purposes for creating man. No other religion or theory can say this.

  2. Everything God tells us about the universe and about man’s existence here on earth has been proven true and is still being played out just as He says it will be. In all other religions and theories, there are several unproven “facts.”

  3. Attempts to disprove God’s truth never succeed. People’s opinions that God’s truth is not real are just that — opinions. All evidence they present can be undeniably refuted.

  4. All other religions have at least one aspect of their belief system that mimics God’s truth. God’s truth mimics nothing.

Don’t be fooled by Satan. Spend time in the Bible each day so you will know for yourself in your heart that God’s truth is the Truth.


Creator God, Please give me wisdom and discernment to study Your Word. Help me learn what it says and live its teachings every day of my life. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.


What Bible truths do I have a hard time believing? How can I read, pray, and study with someone who is more mature in Christ to mentor me?
