Are You Living By The Truth Or By The Fact?

Jesus said in John 14:6, "I AM the way, the truth, and the life..." Jesus is the truth. If Jesus is the truth, what is the significance of that? Bible says that Jesus is the word of God in John 1:1-14. In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God...and the word became flesh. This implies that Jesus Christ, the word of God is the truth. The word of God is broad and contains the written word which is documented in the bible and the spoken word of God which God is saying now to a specific person in a specific situation. When God speaks to a man now either through his mind or through the bible, that word is the truth.

On the other hand, fact is the evidence of the present reality; it is something that has happened or is happening. Fact is what you can see, hold or relate with, it is real. If you are broke, that is a real life experience, it is a fact; also, if you have headache, it is a fact and real. Your computer is real, it is a fact. There is something important I want you to remember about all facts, they are real but they are all temporal, facts are not permanent.

The major difference between the truth and the fact is permanence. While truth is permanent, fact is not. Facts change but truth is always the same. Truth is the same everywhere in the universe, it is the same one thousand years ago as it it now, it will continue to be the same forever. Jesus said, "Heaven and earth will pass away but not a word will pass from my word without being fulfilled. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, that is the truth, it never changes. The right thing to do is to focus on the truth in every situation rather than on the fact. Give attention to the word of God, put  your trust in the word of God and let it be your final authority and you will begin to see God work.

The high point of this article is this, you have the power to change any reality of your life that you do not like to that reality you really desire by applying the word of God which is the truth. When you are faced with a negative reality, just remember that it does not last, facts are temporal, so, just laugh and stand upon the word of God. Those who stand upon the word always win, they change realities or facts, you can do the same from this very moment, be blessed and remain blessed.
