Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day. (Psalm 25:4-5, NKJV, emphasis added)
God’s works are done in truth and are truth; and we recognize this when we wait on Him.
For the word of the LORD is right, and all His work is done in truth. (Psalm 33:4, NKJV, emphasis added)
The works of His hands are verity and justice; all His precepts are sure. They stand fast forever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. (Psalm 111:7-8, NKJV, emphasis added)
Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down. (Daniel 4:37, NKJV, emphasis added)
When we pray for God to lead us in His truth through waiting we learn to recognize that the Lord works from His truth because He is truth. The person who waits on God meditates upon His great works that are spelled out in the pages of Scripture and sprinkled through his day to day experiences as the Lord works and develops Christian character in his life. These passages tell us much about the works of God.
All His work is done in truth. We have to realize that there is nothing the Lord can do that is not truth because His very essence is truth. God has to remain faithful to His character. All of His works, not some of His works, are done in truth. This should cause the person who is waiting on God and developing in Christian character to draw even closer; to trust even more; and to surrender all to the One who can only operate in truth. That is where we want to be.
The works of His hands are verity and justice. We have previously discussed at length God’s justice so we will move on from there to His works being verity. Verity in the Hebrew is a noun meaning truth, faithfulness. His works are truth and He is faithful to the truth. Once again the believer who is waiting on the Lord recognizes who he is serving and places his trust in God’s faithfulness and works done in truth.
All of whose works are truth. This verse reaffirms what was discussed previously. Because God’s works are always done in truth the disciple desires the truth to be done in his life as he waits on the Lord.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6, NKJV)
Meditate upon His works as you wait upon Him in prayer and recognize He faithfully will do nothing that is not done in truth. Because He can only operate in truth ask the Holy Spirit to allow you to rely upon His truth as you become closer to Him through waiting with hope.
