Reading verse: Exodus 13: 1 – 22

“Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor.”

Ephesians 4: 25 (NKJV)

One of the keys to live a life of success is a good character, one of which lies in living in truth. As the people of God, we have to live in truth. This means that we gave to speak and act truthfully. Besides, we must also think righteously according to the word of God.  Speaking truthfully means that whatever we say, we can be accountable for it. Also, we should not bring others down by our speech, for our advantages. Our speech should always be positively a blessing to others. Next, the way we think. The word of God tells us to think about the glorious, the pure, the holy and things that are pleasing to the ears. In all situations we should at least think that God is able to do all things and act righteously.

To live in the truth, we should at least possess the commitment and to maintain it. To live in the truth, we must also be the doers of the Word. Like Joseph when he was in Potiphar’s house, he stayed in the truth though he had to be maligned for things that he did not do. And eventually, God blessed Joseph. Therefore, we must always live in righteousness for if we continue to do so, we will eventually live in victory. And if we live in the truth, God will lift up our lives and make us enjoy all His promises.

Besides, to live in the truth, we need to seek strength from the Lord and ask Him to pour down His Holy Spirit on us, for the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth that will lead us to live in truth at all times. With God, we will be able to live in the righteousness of His words. No matter where we are, let us always live in righteousness and always maintain it, so that our lives may be a blessing to others. Never ever fear to live in righteousness, for blessings are only for the righteous.

Whatever we are facing right now, stay in the truth and never stray away, for God loves the righteous.
