Ask for Truth

Remove from me the way of lying.  I have chosen the way of truth.
Psalm 119:29a, 30a

When I was in high school, some students put on a play in which one character addressed the audience with this question: “What kind of liar are you?”  Everyone laughed, but the question was appropriate.  Living “in the flesh”, as Paul would say it, every one of us lies, to one degree or another.  This is why Paul said if we live in the flesh, we will die (Rom. 8:13).
David was humble enough and honest enough to admit that he was a liar, and to hate it.  And he was also wise enough to go to God with his problem, and to ask God to take the way of lies away from him.  David sincerely desired the way of truth instead, and asked God for it, and God gave it to him.
God will do the same for you.  He will set you free from every lie, whether your own or someone else’s, and fill you with the truth instead.  All you have to do is confess your need of His truth, and ask for it.
