What is the Truth? What is Worldview?

What is The Truth?

In 2008 during a midweek service I saw a promotion of The Truth Project. I was immediately intrigued. Shortly afterwards, I attended a small group and went through the 13 week series. It changed my life.  The Truth Project is primarily taught by Dr. Del Tackett, and special guest speakers; presented by Focus on the Family.

There are many circumstances, teachings, readings, experiences – that have helped me grow into being a better Christian. Besides daily devotions and journaling; preparing and going on missions; I would say that these studies are some of the tools  that I carry with me years later in my walk with Christ and I highly recommend you Experience God by learning The Truth.

What is Worldview?

The thing that I remember most about The Truth Project was the definition of “Worldview” – Do you have a biblical / Christian worldview or do you believe whatever the majority of the world believes to be “truth”?


Trusting in God

Date: January 10, 2010


Title: Trusting in God, Not in Your Own Understanding


Scripture Readings: Gen 23 – 24:51, Matt 8:1-17, Psalm 9:13-20, Prov 3:1-6

S – Scripture:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. –Proverbs 3:5-6

O – Observation:

“Solomon is the main writer of the book of Proverbs.” GotQuestions.org reports, “In the Book of Proverbs, Solomon reveals the mind of God in matters high and lofty and in common, ordinary, everyday situations, too.”  The key words to this verse are: trust and seek. We are to trust the Lord, not depend on ourselves and what we can reconcile in our mind, and to seek God’s will, not our own, in everything we do – only when we do these things – will the Lord give us guidance as to where we should go when we ask for direction.

A – Application:

I will trust in the Lord. I need to remember that although God has given me a brain to think and has instilled information and wisdom, that which he has given me is not all I should depend on, but continue to Seek the Lord – and to have peace that whatever I am seeking him in – is God’s will, not my own. Only after doing these things, will I be shown the path to take. I will take steps of faith to go in the area that God is leading.

Here’s another excerpt from GotQuestions.org, on the explanation of the book of Proverbs.   “Our fear of the Lord’s wrath and justice is what drives us to Christ, who is the embodiment of God’s wisdom as expressed in His glorious plan of redemption for mankind. In Christ, “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3), we find the answer to our search for wisdom, the remedy for our fear of God, and the “righteousness, holiness and redemption” that we so desperately need (1 Corinthians 1:30). The wisdom that is found only in Christ is in contrast to the foolishness of the world, which encourages us to be wise in our own eyes. But Proverbs also tells us that the world’s way is not God’s way (Proverbs 3:7) and leads only to death (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25).”

P – Prayer:

Father I thank you for this day. I ask forgiveness for my sins and that I am able and open-minded to know and do your will. I pray that I go to you first in all things, not wait as a ‘last resort’ and go to you when I am desperate, but from the beginning. So that I can show you that I trust you, lean not on my own understanding, seek your will in all things, no matter how big or small, and that you will guide my path. Amen.


The Angel of the Lord Brings Good News

Jan 02, 2010

Gen 3, 4, 5, Luke 2

S – Scripture: Luke 2:10 “but the angel reassured them (shepherds). “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.”

O – Observation: Jesus was born and shepherds saw an angel of the Lord which brought fear to their hearts, the angel assured them that he was there to bring good news – Jesus the Son of God was born:  v 11-12 “The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

A – Application: Often times when God shows us a sign, or presents a messenger (by person, Word, teaching, etc) – we immediately think of all the things we have done wrong, or the “wrath of God” – this scripture reminds us that God’s angels can also bring messages of goodness, hope, and promises fulfilled.

P – Prayer:

Father help thou my unbelief. Forgive me for my sins. Help to me to know and do your will. Let your will be done, use me to carry out your work. Let my mind be clear to hear and know you. Create in me a clean heart, oh Lord. For you are the potter and I am the clay.

Reflection: In the past year I felt led to move from the only home that I have ever known. I moved to be closer to my fiancé at the time, now my husband, to another state with no other family or friends. I still believe that this is God’s will, although I am and have been challenged by cultural differences and unfamiliar surroundings. Although sometimes I want God to move faster, He has had to break this clay pot (me) into tiny pieces, only to rebuild and continues to rebuild my character to become the person He needs me to be. At times I’ve felt like dust from being broken and crushed, left as a parched soul, waiting for the rain to come to restore me to dirt so that I could become clay again – and praying the wind would not come and blow me away as particles in the wind.  I pray that I always am available to be molded.
