In  the Innermost Being

Psychologists have noted  that many people  are accustomed  to really believing  their own lies.     They quickly fabricate  false reasonings  and justifications  for their blatant lies  to defend themselves,  to the point where  they could even  take a lie detector test  showing their comfort  in believing  and standing up  for their own lies.

Because  the LORD  is the God of truth  and all righteousness,  He can never approve  of any lie.     Knowing that,  when King David confessed  his grievous sin  of adultery,  in true repentance,  he said  to God  in Psalm 51:6,

Behold,  You desire truth  in the innermost being,
And  in the hidden part  You will make me  know wisdom.

In other words,  God desires  “truth”  so much  that He will  “make”  His children  “know”  the “wisdom”  of telling  the truth.     God makes  His children  feel  the sting  of guilt  so that they will  “know wisdom”  in telling the truth  —  instead of  solidifying themselves  in lies.

Jesus explained  the problem  of habitual lying.     He said  in John 8:44,

You are  of your father  the devil,  and you want  to do the desires  of your father.     He was a murderer  from the beginning,  and does not stand  in the truth  because there is no truth  in him.     Whenever  he speaks a lie,  he speaks  from his own nature,  for he is a liar  and the father  of lies.

Sadly,  that is a truth  we always need  to be aware of  in this sinful world.

Knowing that,  the psalmist,  Asaph,  said  to God  in Psalm 73:25-26,

Whom  have I  in heaven  but You?
And besides You,  I desire nothing  on earth.
My flesh  and my heart  may fail,
But  God is the strength  of my heart  and my portion forever.

Desiring  God’s truth  in our  “innermost being”,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for showing us  Your wisdom  in our times  of being challenged.     Let our desire always be  for Your truth.”

Love,
