Mastered by Truth

I cannot master truth, instead I must allow Truth to master me.

I submit to you, Jesus, for you alone are the Way, the Truth and the Life. You are my Lord and I shall have no other master.

Your Word holds the universe together, therefore it holds me together. I set myself to agree with Your Word and the Spirit of Truth, for anything else would be self-destruction and foolishness.

God, You are the Rock, Your work is perfect; all Your ways are justice; You are righteous and upright, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth. You are a God of truth, and You desire truth in the inward parts. I am submitting to Your truth and Truth is forming Your character in me.

I come before Your throne of grace, Father, that I might turn from my inquities and understand Your truth. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day. I hide Your word in my heart so that I might not sin against You.

I partake of Your word~ it is the milk and solid food that nourishes me. Your Word is becoming part of me, and this incarnate Word of Truth is changing me from glory to glory. I am being filled up with your Truth and the favor that comes with it.

I am gaining a more intimate knowledge of Truth from day to day. Truth is gaining the pre-eminence in me; Truth is rising up in me and I am taking authority over all the works of the devil, casting them down. When the devil comes to tempt and deceive, Truth comes out of my mouth like a two-edged sword to destroy every lie. I am taking every lying thought captive and punishing it with truth, after I have obeyed Truth.

I love Truth, and I am becoming more and more open to Him and transparent to others, for darkness, lies, deception and masking are all giving way to the clarity of Truth; therefore I am becoming more free each day from the tyranny of the world, the flesh and the devil. The Spirit of Truth lives in me, and comes along side to help me walk in the knowledge and understanding of the truth.

I worship God in Spirit and Truth, and Truth inhabits my praises. I am set apart by Truth, separated from darkness by His sword of Truth. I dwell in the City of Truth with all those who love Truth and are mastered by Truth. This heavenly City ~ full of truth, love and unity~ is shining more and more brightly and will draw all nations into it until the glory of God covers the earth.
