You're listening to Life Path, biblical instruction with practical application. I'm Brandon Ware and I want to welcome you to my podcast. Today is Friday, January 15th, 2021.

And today's devotional thought comes from Psalm 12 verse 6 which says, The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. You know, one of the most pressing questions in our lives is this question, Who can I trust? With all this talk nowadays about fake news, we wonder if there is truly someone we can trust to tell us the truth. Is there really anyone that we can trust? Anyone that we can truly confide in? Is there really anyone that we can speak openly and candidly with?

And is there anybody that we know will just tell us the honest truth? Well, these are some issues that David was dealing with when he wrote this psalm, Psalm 12. And he states the problem in verse 1 as he cries out, Save, O Lord, for the godly man is gone.

He says, The faithful have vanished from among the children of man. Everyone utters lies to his neighbor with flattering lips and a double heart they speak. In other words, falsehood is the currency of the day. When David looked around at his generation, he noticed that double standards were the norm.

Truth was nowhere to be found. Now, you know, that's not just true of David's day, but it pretty much sums up our day, doesn't it? I mean, in my mind, that sums up the cultural and political scene of our own day. Everyone has their own spin on any given situation. Totally, completely irrespective of the facts. Rather than reporting the news, the media now tells us what to believe about the news.

Rather than transparency, our politicians cloak their language in the garb of flattery and empty promises. Where are the faithful to be found? The question that David asks, it's the same question that we ask even now.

Where is the faithful man or woman? Well, what the psalmist wants us to recognize is this. In contrast to the flattering lips, boastful tongues, and worthless words of sinful man, in contrast to these are the true and trustworthy words of God. His words are pure words. And that word pure there translates a Hebrew word that means to be ceremonially clean.

To be free from all moral defilement. God's words can be trusted because they are true and honest. God's word is truth without any mixture of error, no spin whatsoever. And so if you're wondering just who to trust these days, let me tell you, you can trust the Lord. Jesus said in John 14, I am the way, the truth, and the life. And you know that's some really good news in these days of deception. Well that's today's devotional thought.
