Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John:32
Josh McDowell is a man who did not believe in God. He decided to prove that God did not exist by examining the evidence. He examined the evidence and the evidence led him to the truth of God. He wrote, “Evidence That Demands A Verdict” and he became a believer. He is a great teacher and speaker. I have heard him many times.
Below is a part from “Attributes of God.” by Josh McDowell.
Because God is absolute truth…
I will believe what He says and live accordingly.

Beloved, God is truth. He is trustworthy. Do you believe this? When we know the truth of God, His truth sets us free, free from condemnation, free from worry, free from pain. God sent us the Holy Spirit who testifies God is true. Do you know how the treasury finds counterfeit money? By studying real money. If we know God as truth we will recognize the lies of the enemy. We need to study God’s word, the truth. We need to know who we are in Christ.
What truth do you believe? Are you abiding daily in God’s truth? What promise are you claiming to remind you that God is Truth?
Father God, You are truth, I ask that each day we acknowledge that You are truth. God you are full of grace and truth. Your word speaks the truth. You are faithful and true. Today Lord let me walk in your truth. Father God, We Believe.
