Truth-Teller • Galatians 4

And now have I suddenly become your enemy 
simply by telling you the truth? 
I can't believe it.

Those heretical teachers go to great lengths
to flatter you, but their motives are rotten. 
They want to shut you out of 
the free world of God's grace 
so that you will always depend on them 
for approval and direction, making them feel important. 
Galatians 4:16-17

Oh Lord!

I want to be a truth-believer and a truth-teller!

Please strip away all that is false,
all that keeps me from You.

Strip away any desire I have for my own way.

Going my own way causes so much trouble and grief.

Your way is life and peace.

My way is death.

I am Your child!

Your Spirit within me cries out,
"Daddy! Poppa!"

Why would I ever want to go back
into slavery?

Why do I look for chains to slap around
my wrists?

I am Your child!

All that is Yours is mine!

Oh Thank You, Jesus!
Thank You, Father!

I choose to walk in freedom today.

Help me to seek truth,
know truth,
believe truth and
speak truth always.

I want to be a truth-teller.
