Deeper Day 316: Fact Check

The phenomenon of fact checkers in our Facebook world…and that is seemingly expanding to other locations in our lives…is so interesting. These fact checkers are clearly slanted toward a political side. It’s become very interesting how the cloud of deception has appeared to just grow and grow. We were warned of this deception.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20

I’ve also noticed that fact checkers never existed until the truth began to be exposed. When the light began to shine and truth began to be seen, the darkness rose up with a diversion to attempt to continue to cloud the minds of the people. These are strange days.

While the fact checks seem so obviously irrelevant and dishonest to me, unfortunately, I have noticed an increased number of people who are falling for this manipulation. The media is attempting to control minds. What do we do? How do we resist?

Well remember, we have the mind of Christ. If you put on your helmet of salvation every day, then you will be able to resist the evil one.

Whenever you are faced with a new “fact check” or someone pulling on your heart strings to do or not do this or that, it’s so important to first go to the only One Who has all the facts…Holy Spirit. Ask God to speak truth to your heart. Ask God to give you all wisdom so you can better navigate these frustrating times. He is faithful to do so. He will guide you if you allow Him to do so.

There is only One fact checker in my life. Whenever I see or hear something, I immediately feel either a check in my spirit or agreement. This is because I have leaned upon Holy Spirit for so long. I have deliberately come to Holy Spirit for my information and direction, and now it’s become second nature. You too can walk like that. If you are saved, then you have Holy Spirit inside of you. Holy Spirit is said to guide us in ALL things. All means all.

I encourage you today, take all your “facts” to Holy Spirit and ask, “Am I believing and partnering with truth or manipulation and lies?” Trust His process. He is the only true One.

Prayer Moment: God, I trust You to give me all the information that I need. The world has nothing to offer me. I gain nothing from partnering with the world. I only gain when I lean on You. Today I ask that You would guide me into all truth. Help me to stand firmly on the truth that You speak to me and never waver. You are the Spirit of Truth, and I trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify Me because it is from Me that He will receive what He will make known to you.  John 16:13-14
