Pray to God to change your character.
If you seek truth, He will guide you in the way to the truth.
When He has formed the character He desires for you (and no, heck no, it will not be easy, but it can be fun if you have the right attitude); then the
character that you possess will therefore be able to recognize truth much more quickly and much more easily.
IT doesn't mean that you will know everything. But if two options are posed to you, and one is the truth, you will know it. If they are not the
truth, you will know they aren't the truth. For those that genuinely seek the truth know what it looks like when they see it. But those who seek
only for what is comfortable for them, or for their bias, this will hinder their ability. Their eyes are blind to the truth because they seek only to
find what suits their cause, their comfort, their zone.
Now some have convinced themselves to create a comfort zone outside of the comfort zone. And they have said to themselves, "surely, I'm doing well,
because I have made it comfortable to be outside of my comfort zone". But the irony is that they have only fooled themselves twice, and dug a deeper
hole for their confusion.
Once you learn truth, it is very simple to understand how much bad information there really is.
And I'll give you a hint: most everything that you are seeing and reading today is exactly this formula: 50% based on a true story, 50% utter
And the portion that is based on a true story, is not even factual. It only resembles the facts somewhat.
You see, the human spirit has been equipped with the ability to discern truth.
Meaning, when truth happens upon you, you know it is true! And we all take that for granted. And no one recognizes that.
But I sat and considered one day: Wait a minute. Why is it that when I teach something to somebody, they are not always confused, but instead, say,
"Well, that makes sense!" Interesting. Then it dawned on me: The only way that someone can know the truth is if they ALREADY know it.
How can someone know what something is if they don't already have that understanding within them? If there is only but confusion, how could one
possibly know that they hear is any good? Unless it were within them.
Now in this way also do people know what a lie is. But people these days, especially this generation, are major liars. And today, it is acceptable.
It is understood that everyone is a liar and that it is okay; that's how business works these days.
But obviously, that is not true... and how could someone call true what is a lie and also possess lies? Foolishness, utterly! People are dimmer
these days; not wiser, unfortunately.
Now liars cannot discern lies. They don't know them. Sometimes they discern the tactics of a lie. But that doesn't mean they are convinced of a
lie. Liars don't know the truth, so they cannot understand when something is true. It's hard for them. Liars are the easiest people to lie to;
against everything you've ever heard. But try it. Find your lyingest liar, and lie your lying liar pants off to them. Make it good. See if they
notice beyond initial doubts.
But those that know the truth, we know a lie quickly. Instantaneously; and people are shocked. And liars keep playing the game, trying to pretend
like they are not translucent as the glass through which they are throwing their silly rocks. And they hate it. They hate being translucent. And I
feel bad for them, too. I don't like to see people to be shamed so easily. But do the people who know the truth believe the lie for the sake of the
liar? No, that's also stupid. So the liar digs their own grave, and blows out their own windows.
If you know the truth, how could you fall for a lie? Pretty simple, I think.
So if you are having a hard time discerning truth, the reality is, that you are a liar. If you want to be able to seek truth properly, you must first
fix your dishonesty, and your lies.
Like alcohol on an open wound, I know it.
