"Too often people embrace their reality, as truth, but never receive the truth about their reality."
Pharaoh was in the dark.
I encourage you to reread that statement and think about the following.
Just because someone experienced a little something, doesn't mean the little something they experienced is true. I do recognize that's somewhat hard for us to grasp. That something can be real, even an undeniable fact, but at the same time, it can be a lie. And, with that being said, for way too many...their whole life experience, which is a collection of little things, will sadly be in the end, one big lie. Why?
THEY EMBRACED THEIR REALITY, AS TRUTH, BUT NOT WHAT WAS TRUE ABOUT THEIR REALITY!
Why? Because they never received a love for the truth... and they now live a life of unfiltered deception and lies.
There are, THEY EMBRACED THEIR REALITY, AS TRUTH, BUT NOT WHAT WAS TRUE ABOUT THEIR REALITY! There's a difference. As Paul would say, "Let God be true and every man a liar." It's not that we or they have to get everything right. What is it then? The testimony of Jesus unquestionably reveals we can't ever get it right and He never gets it wrong… therefore, through this revelation we cast our trust upon Him, believing that not only did He get it right for us, but through His grace, but by His grace He alone will lead and shepherd us rightly. Having this light and wonder can't be stifled, stopped, or stripped away. As much as in us will be what gets out of us. Light in light out. No light of the gospel within means no light of the gospel shining from a person.
