Daily Readings – Lying Lips!

Day 1863: My baby girl is 40 today! Happy b’day Heathie!

Scripture: In my trouble I cried to the Lordand He answered me. Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips; from a deceitful tongue. Psalm 120:1, 2

Thoughts/questions: Lying is one of my least favorite things people do. The web of deception can easily entrap the liar and negatively impact all those involved in its wake.

The Lord uses the truth to deliver us from the impact surrounding the lies, and we can deliver ourselves from the liar! We cannot control the lying tongues of others, yet we tend to focus on them with feeble attempts to discredit them or trying to defend ourselves to them and others.

Instead, focusing on ourselves and how we live a life of integrity with truth as our standard will diffuse the impact of any lies spoken about us. We have 100% control of ourselves and 0% control of others, so let us team with God and deliver ourselves from evil – the evil of lying!

Suggested prayer:  Lord God, may the lies of others never ruin my testimony of what You’ve done in my life . . .
