14 Bible Verses About Seeking Truth

Seeking the truth should be one of our top priorities. In a world full of deception, fake, and misleading news, we need to seek out the truth. The Bible tells us that God is a God of truth, and we can fully trust Him. The Bible also warns us about being deceived. 

In the Bible, the word “truth” usually means reality. If we’re not living in the truth, then we’re living in a false reality. This can cause a lot of issues in our life. 

There are two clear sides: truth and deception. God always wants to lead us into the truth, and the devil works 24/7 to deceive us and pull us away from living in the truth. Revelation 12:9 tells us that the devil deceives the whole world. This has been happening since the first few chapters of Genesis when Adam and Eve were deceived in the Garden of Eden. 

We need to be aware that there is a spiritual force that’s trying to blind us to the truth. We need to be intentional and seek out what’s true and what isn’t. Here are 14 Bible verses that can help us and inspire us to seek truth and walk in God’s truth.

Truth in the Old Testament

In the Old Testament, there isn’t one specific words that’s translated as “truth”. Of course, that doesn’t mean that truth doesn’t exist or is unclear. Oftentimes, Hebrew words are multidimensional. That means that they can be translated as a few different English words. 

The Hebrew word “emeth” is an adverb used over 100 times in the Old Testament. “Emeth” is translated as truth, faithfulness, and firmness. This can gives us a better insight into what truth means. Truth is used to describe something that remains the same over time.

We live in a society today that has abandon this meaning of truth. We use truth as a word to describe things that change: your personal experiences, your feelings, and your friends and family describe your “truth”.

That isn’t Biblical truth. 

According to the Bible, truth is used to describe things that remain the same.

We can rely on truth and the God of truth because He is unchanging. We can rest assured that even when our feelings and emotions change, God remains faithful and true.
