His Truth Or My Truth? – A Closer Look At Psalm 91:4
‘My truth’ is a popular phrase that’s becoming acceptable in culture. But as I ponder more and more on scriptures, I come to the conclusion that this is a deception from the pit of hell! There is only one truth!
‘My truth’ appears harmless on the surface but it only seeks to erode our foundation of God’s word as the TRUTH.
Upon closer examination of Psalm 91: 4, I see it clearly; His(God’s) truth is my shield and buckler.
King James Bible
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
International Standard Version
With his feathers he will cover you, under his wings you will find safety. His truth is your shield and armor.
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
In his feathers he shall deliver you and under his wings you shall have refuge; his truth shall surround you as a supply of armor.
Ever wondered why there are so many wounded and unstable folks all around? It’s because they have left the truth of God’s word and are holding on to ‘my truth’ so they have been and are being pierced with the many arrows that life throws on a daily basis.
Circumstances and situations in life change from day to day; this is clearly evident in the happenings of this year 2020. From when the screams of happy new year rent the air till date when conspiracy theories on COVID 19 and conflicting facts fill the airwaves. So many events have taken place world over that would surely cause ‘my truth’ to change from day to day.
All these bring to mind Romans 3:4a
GOD’S WORD® Translation
That would be unthinkable! God is honest, and everyone else is a liar
New International Version
Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar
New Living Translation
Of course not! Even if everyone else is a liar, God is true
So based on the foregoing, I have caught this revelation and settled in on it; God’s word is true while every man, situation or circumstance is a lie. God’s truth is my shield and buckler! Halleluiah!
This is God’s truth concerning me for this season:
Psalm 91: 5-10 – ( The Message Translation)
Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, Not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon.
Even though others succumb all around, drop like flies right and left, no harm will even graze you.
You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance, watch the wicked turn into corpses.
Yes, because God’s your refuge, the High God your very own home, Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door.
Here’s my submission:-
His truth; not culture
His truth; not medicine
His truth; not science
His truth; not conspiracy theories
His truth; not myths
His Truth; Definitely Not My Truth!!!!!!
His truth and nothing but his truth is my shield and buckler!
So apply God’s truth to every area of your life. His truth would save you from heartache and heartbreaks. His truth would save you from mental and emotional turmoil. His truth would deliver you from all harm and keep you protected from all the arrows that life is sure to keep throwing at you.
Bring your truth under submission to HIS truth and know peace!
