III John 3-4
3 For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
One of the greatest battles you’ll face as a believer is the battle between truth and fact. Most people fail to realize that there is a difference between the two, but there definitely is. You see, facts are constantly changing. For example, right now, the fact is that you may be feeling fine. However, you could wake up in the morning and not being feeling so well…a different set of facts entirely. The fact could be that is hot and dry today but tomorrow the fact may be that it’s raining. Truth, on the other hand, never changes. If something is true today, then it will be true tomorrow. Truth is only proven over time. God’s word is true and it will never change. In fact, when you apply the truth that Jesus paid for your healing at the cross and He gave it to you freely, that truth will cause the facts to change. Jesus lived by this principle. When He saw someone with a need for healing or deliverance He imparted the truth of the Kingdom to them and their facts changed. Blind eyes opened, deaf ears began to hear, and people’s needs were met. This is why the Apostle John was so excited in today’s text. He saw the evidence in people’s lives that they were allowing the truth of God’s Word to change the facts that they were dealing with. If you’re looking to see the facts and circumstances of your life changed, begin applying the truth to your life. Refuse to rehearse what you’re dealing with and only let the truth from the Word of God come out of your mouth. You’ll find that not only will the facts change, but it will change you as well. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
