TRUTH V fACTS


I remember when I first grasped this message, I was soooo exited that I had to share it with my mum. I pray that you too will also feel that same way after this blog. The words truth and fact are usually interchangeable, what is classified as a fact is usually the truth right?! Actually not always.

P.S. if you would like us to pray for you then please do not hesitate to Facebook message us or email us on truspire@ymail.com

So what is a fact? The dictionary says it is “Knowledge or information based on real occurrences” for example 2+2 =4 and most (normal people) would agree that this is also the truth. However the existence of gravity is also a fact but the law of lift supersedes it as aeroplanes have proven.

So where am I going with this? Just hold tight lool. Apart from the dictionary meaning of these words, another difference is that Facts can change while truths cannot. How is this possible you say? Well if you take the bible as the truth then how can it change?! The truth, being the bible, supersedes fact. Let me give you a few examples

Sickness: Your illness may range from a mere cold to cancer and these are facts. The doctor may have told you that you are going to die as a result of your illness but the truth (the bible) says that ‘”by his stripes ye were healed” – 1 peter 2:24. There are no ‘ifs’ not ‘buts’, the bible does place exceptions on what one can be healed.

Work life: This could be your school work like exams, essays, coursework or it could be regarding work that you need to do in your job. The fact may be that you are failing at school/university, you cannot do the work or you’re incapable of completing the challenge before you. However truth says “For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6). The word also says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” –Philippians 4:13.

Daily struggles: the fact here may be that you do not have the money to pay the rent or put food on the table or that you cannot afford to go to university. Maybe the bailiffs are after you and the creditors are breathing down you neck. However truth says that “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” – Philippians 4:19

Salvation: The fact is hat we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, you have done some incredibly bad things by the world’s standards but the truth is that God sent His only Son to die on the cross for you and I “…But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him..” Isaiah 53:5

This truth cannot be changed because God doesn’t change!

I could go on and on and on but I’m sure you get what I’m saying. So how do we get the truth to become a fact in our life?! One word—FAITH! A plane can be perfectly crafted but it will not take off unless someone switches on the engine. So also, it’s all well and good knowing what the bible says but until to apply faith to your situation and more importantly, put your faith in God (Mark 11:22), then your situation will not change. The bible says:

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20

Such little faith can do sooooo much and “NOTHING will be impossible for you”! WOW!!! So then if such little faith can no that then what is our problem then?! I think it’s our focus on facts, we see facts as unchangeable. Today science has developed so far to the point that anything that contradicts it seems wrong. Additionally we live in a society where we rely a lot on evidence, just take a look at the justice system. The fact that Lawyers are so important in today’s society shows how evidence based we have become so much so that an oral agreement in some cases is no longer valid because there is no evidence of it! But today make a decision to see what the bible says as the final word in your life regardless of your situation or circumstance.

Stay blessed

Sinceress xx
