Be Anchored in Truth.

No anchor should have a short chain. Anchors need a chain long enough to go deep. Likewise, as Christians we should have a deep connection with the Lord that can weather the storms of life.

  • Ephesians 6:11 – 18 New King James Version – 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 

Jesus didn’t quarrel with people. He would confront and rebuke if necessary and cast demons out. People are being used by the enemy to get to you. You can’t see the enemy. But, you can see the effects of the enemy who works through people to cause chaos, violence, strife and enmity. The enemy will use people to make you so upset with them that you won’t even witness to them. God wants to save people. We should have a heart for all souls to be saved.

Put on the whole armor of God so that you can stand against the wiles of the devil every day. God wants us to walk by faith–not feelings. Every time we hear the Word of God, we hear truth to live by and stand on. The truth from the Word of God is our firm foundation.

We expect the world to accept lies. But it’s sad when the church accepts lies. The Lord Jesus wants us to walk in truth and be anchored in it. If you stand for truth don’t plan on being part of the majority. If you plan on standing for truth, be prepared to stand alone sometimes.

  • Proverbs 14:12 New King James Version– There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is death.

Is there anything that you are thinking is right, that is really wrong? It takes the Holy Spirit to reveal self deception. For parents, if you have a child that practices lying, correct that as soon as possible.

  • Psalm 101:7 New King James Version – He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house; He who tells lies shall not continue in my presence.
  • John 8:32 New King James Version – And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
  • Revelation 21:8 New King James Version – But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
  • Proverbs 6:16-19 New King James Version 16 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.

People don’t want to receive truth because that means they will have to submit to God. But the best thing to do is turn your life over to the Lord. We have to learn to hate what God hates and love what God loves.
