God Is Truth
The Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King.
As we consider God’s attributes we can get a better picture of His character. One of God’s most important attributes is truth. This is very important. This means He is the true God and that His knowledge and words are true and they are the final standard of truth.
I want you to know right from the outset that we are flawed in our understanding and in our ability to know what is right or wrong, to know when something is true or false, what is evil, what is impure, what is good or virtuous.
Now there are many false gods out in the world today, so we need to be careful to follow the true God. The Prophet Jeremiah said, “The Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King” (Jeremiah 10:10). Now we may not always understand what God means when He says certain things. We may not always understand why He does or does not do certain things. But the bottom line, as Jeremiah said, is that God is truth.
You see, God’s knowledge is perfect. It is without flaw. And He is the final standard of truth. There is no other. There are no second opinions. That’s it: God is true.
