There are many voices in the world today. You see people marching on
the street, holding signs that say “Abortion is good” or “ We are gay
and proud of it”.
We can listen to preachers on Christian radio and television stations all
day long. One says, “ Do it this way”, another says, “No, no. He has it
wrong. Do it this way“. We even hear of some religious groups in other
countries killing innocent people and saying that it is right and good to
After awhile, our heads are spinning, and we ask, “ Just who is right?
Where do I go to find real truth?”
When you are watching a parade, you can see only what is directly in
front of you, or a little to the left and right, but someone above the
parade in a helicopter looking down can see the whole parade from the
beginning to the end. This is how God sees everything; the end from
the beginning. We only see the moment, but God sees to the end of
time and beyond.
The answer is very simple; God knows everything, so we go to Him to
find the truth. He can’t lie, so what He says can be only truth. You will
probably say “Yeah, right. Who can get answers from God?”
GOING TO GOD
Good news friend! The Bible tells us how to get answers from God!
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that
cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of
them that diligently seek him.
1. We must believe that God exists.
2. We must believe that He will answer us if we put effort into seeking
Matthew 7:8 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh,
findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
This is for everyone. God has given us His promise, and He can’t lie,
We must diligently seek Him. That means keeping on until you have
Luke 11:5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and
shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three
Luke 11:6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have
nothing to set before him?
Luke 11:7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the
door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and
Luke 11:8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because
he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him
as many as he needeth.
Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and
ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
HOW DOES GOD GUIDE?
1. By His word. (“Thy word is truth.”)
2. By listening to someone who knows the truth.
3. By God opening your understanding (Putting it in your mind)
Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might
understand the scriptures,
He will give you a personal experience with Him.
He will help you avoid things that are wrong.
TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
Some will say, “I don’t want to know what the Bible teaches, because
then I will have to obey it”. Would you say “ If I don’t learn the traffic
laws, then I can drive without obeying them?” You surely wouldn’t have
a very pleasant driving experience!
HOW WILL I KNOW?
How will you know when you have found truth? Have you ever bought a
product that came in pieces and had to assemble it? Did you at first try
to put it together without reading the instructions? (I won’t ask how it
WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
After much frustration, you finally read the instructions. Then you found
out the names of all the pieces and how they went together. You found
the right way to proceed.
It is the same way when God guides you. Things begin to go together in
your life in a much better way. Matters didn’t work out so good when
you tried to do it on your own, but now, as you look to God for
guidance, life begins to get better and clearer. You know you have
found the truth. (I am not saying things always go the way we want
them to, however!)
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to
them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Why don’t most people want truth? Did you ever say that you didn’t like
a certain food but had never even tasted it? Later, you tried it, and
found that you really did like it. Many people have very negative
thoughts toward God and the Bible. Try God and His Word! See how
great it is!
Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man
that trusteth in him.
If I tell you how good pumpkin pie is, but you know I very seldom eat it
even when given the opportunity, you probably would not believe me
enough to try it for yourself. But if you knew I ate it every chance I got,
with a big grin on my face and an “Mm-mmm! That‘s good!”, you would
probably try it just to see what you were missing.
THE HAPPY CUSTOMER
Nothing sells a product like people who buy a product and are very
happy with it; they tell their friends.
Read the life stories of Bill, Robin, and others on this website. They are
people who have found truth, put it to work in their lives, and are very
happy with it. You should see them in church praising and thanking God
for showing them truth!
The greatest proof that the Bible is true, is that it works. Our country is
strong because of good laws; because it is founded on the principles
found in the Bible. Millions have found the truth that changes lives. You
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
