True, True, True!

by Debbie on July 31, 2010

If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is!!  Someone I know received a letter and a sizable sum of money in the form of a check.  The letter stated that this person had won a lottery and that they needed to call a phone number that was in the letter to receive instructions about receiving the rest of the funds.  They were instructed in the letter to send all but a small portion of the money to a certain address which was to cover taxes.  They were told once  they did this they would receive the larger portion of their winnings.  The check was a legitimate looking check and was drawn on a real bank and the payer was shown to be the Board of Commissioners of a large county in Georgia.  This person that received the letter was elated because they were facing some hard financial times and they thought their ship had come in for sure.  After reading the letter and seeing the check, I was certain that this was a scam.  The letter asked the person not to tell anyone else about this letter until they had followed all the instructions in the letter.  I am so glad this person shared it with me.  I immediately called the Board of Commissioners in this large county and spoke with the finance officer and found out the truth.  The truth was that they are a government entity and would never be involved in any type of lottery. The finance officer stated that they had received other phone calls similar to mine and they could assure me that if my friend cashed this check that it would come back insufficient and my friend would be stuck with the loss.  I shared this news with my friend and they still seemed doubtful.  Their situation was so bad financially that they wanted to believe that a miracle had happened for them.  I hated to be the bearer of bad news but later they thanked me for caring enough to find out the truth and to tell them the truth.  I did this because I knew that this person was so desperate to get out of financial debt that they would just about do anything.  I am so thankful that I was able to help them avoid a scam that would have caused them even more financial disaster.

There is someone that is available to help us and tell us the truth when we can be so easily deceived in this world.   That someone is Jesus.  He spent his time on earth speaking the truth but people sometimes did not believe him.  He so wanted them to believe him that he even said to them many times, "I tell you the truth".  It did not matter to some people what he said, they still doubted him.  Where are you today?  Are you facing some hard times financially, relationally, physically, emotionally?  Could you use some truth in your situation?  Well Jesus has written you a letter too.  It is called the bible.  This letter is not a scam letter telling you deceptive things to deceive you  and resulting in injury to you.  It is a love letter telling you everything that you need to know to help you get out of what ever troubles you are facing.  This letter is true, true, true!  How do I know?  I know because I have called on the one who wrote the letter and found out that if I follow the instructions in the letter I will be blessed.  I have tested and proved this letter to be true and accurate.  God is not a man that he should lie.  Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and no one comes to the Father except through him.

What lies are you believing today?  If you are in a situation that seems too good to be true, you need to find out if it is.  The way to do that is by calling on the ONE who knows everything and can help you with anything.  The ONE you need to call on is God!!  You can call on him by praying to him in the name of Jesus and you can read the Bible and he will speak to you and tell you the truth about your situation.  If it is in the bible, it is true, true, true!!  Don't be scammed by the lies of the devil or someone who represents the devil.  Be certain you know the truth.  Make the call, read the letter!!

I am praying for my friend to call on God for the help that is needed for their financial troubles.  I am also praying that this friend will stop looking to worldly things to help but look to the creator of all things (God) for the help that is needed.  I also want to pray for you too.  I will make the call for you just as I did for my friend!  I hope that you will read the bible and allow the truth to speak to your heart and help you find the best way to overcome whatever troubles you may be facing today.

Dear God in heaven,

Thank you that you are the real deal.  Thank you that you are NOT too good to be true. Thank you that you are good and that all that you speak is truth.  Thank you for sending your Son Jesus to speak truth to us and help us in our times of trouble.  Thank you that he is available to us anytime through prayer and through his Word (the bible).  Help me and my friends who are reading this prayer to call on you and read the truth in your Word and know that you speak the truth into their situations only to help them and not to scam them, deceive them, or hurt them.  Help us all to stop looking for our ship to come in and look to you for our provisions, knowing that you love us and care for us and will provide all that we need.   Thank you that your Word says in Phil. 4:19 that you will provide all our needs according to all your riches in glory in Christ Jesus.  Thank you that you have all that we need and we can ask you for help and receive it.  We trust you because you are truth and you do not lie.  We believe you and your Word are true, true, true!!  In Jesus name, Amen.
