Certainty and Truth

 We humans have a need for certainty, and one requirement for obtaining it is truth. Truth solidifies everything, and without it, there’s instability. Apart from the truth, no one feels completely at ease; in fact, most generally feel unsettled. When something feels amiss, there’s at least some element of truth missing. How many are fully confident in a given situation without having all the facts? If you want to make positive change in life, you need to know where you stand in order to assess what adjustments need to be made to move forward. Simply knowing where you’re at gives you a starting point.

In some instances, avoiding the truth is an act of fear, and for others it may be an act of rebellion. Some equate truth with pain, so they sidestep it. “The truth hurts.” Deep down many of them know they’re doing themselves more harm than good by doing so. If you were to reject truth, you would find confusion knocking at your door, along with anxiety. Interestingly, truth does bring a sense of freedom, along with certainty and peace. Jesus said it best: “If ye continue in My Word, then are ye My disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).

Why do so many reject the truth? They want what they want, and they don’t want it to interfere with their way of life. Insisting on your own way at the cost of truth leads to an unstable life. It’s the way of self-deception which leaves you vulnerable to blind spots. In one sense, it’s a form of self-sabotage, which may even affect your eternity. Truth begins with Jesus, as He Himself has said: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). If you want absolute certainty, begin with Jesus. He is the Source of all truth, knowledge, wisdom and understanding. He is our Rock!
