When you are stuck in a mud slinging pit of condemnation and finger pointing, the only “truth” that feels right is your own. Today, I want to challenge you to push pause on the emotion charged desire to defend yourself and ask God for His perspective.
Ask Him to use this opportunity to guide you into His truth, His perspective, and His love soaked truth for you. Ask God for His perspective based on who He is, not who you are dealing with.
In the midst of this kind of trial, David prayed in Psalm 25:5, “Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” (NIV)
King David wrote this Psalm, this worship song so that it would be sung by the nation of God’s chosen people who faced oppression on a massive scale throughout their history. It is meant to point their gaze up to God and to help them put their hearts and hope in Yahweh, the One God, the only God, the true God.
This prayer has been repeated by generations of those who tied their hope to His faithfulness. You can join them. Shift your focus from the “truth” of what is happening around you to the truth of who God is to you and tie your hope to the strong hold of His enduring love.
“Escort me into your truth; take me by the hand and teach me. For you are the God of my salvation; I have wrapped my heart into yours all day long!”
Psalms 25:5 TPT
He will answer your prayer, take you by the hand and show you truth from His perspective. He is where your salvation lies and tethered your heart to His.
