Truth for When the Way Grows Foggy

by Emily Conrad

Truth is a beautiful thing, and it seems like I've been a Christian for long enough that, by now, I ought to have it down. I ought to be able to spot the truth, no matter what others are saying to or about me--or what I'm saying to myself!--and I ought to know the right way to respond.

But lies produce a particularly thick fog, clouding even answers to basic questions like, What did I do and why? How should I proceed? What do I believe? Where is God in this?

To some extent or another, at one time or another, I bet you've experienced that fog yourself because the devil is the father of lies, as Jesus says in John 8:44, and so lies have been causing confusion and pain since the garden.

Truth will set us free (John 8:32), but when lies cloud the way, how do we find it?
