“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17
Truth be told…
God’s Word is “gold.”
To it, strongly, we must hold…
to see the answers to our prayers unfold.
When doubt tries to make us conform to its mold,
the promises in God’s Word are what we need to behold.
In it, His account of creating everything is told;
and throughout the Holy Bible, His Son, Jesus, is extolled.
We’re to share His love with others–their hearts to enfold,
He wants all to find His love, so our love must be bold.
May we, too, as believers, always rest assured…
that there’s nothing more trustworthy than God’s Holy Word….
for truth be told…
God’s Word is “gold”…
yet it’s greater than and more to be desired than gold!
P. A. Oltrogge

“The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever. The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.” Mark 11:23-25 NKJV

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:12-15
“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie.

It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.” Hebrews 6:18-19 NLT

And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” 1 John 3:23-24
