Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life

Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. — John 14:6 (NIV)

Put your trust in Me, and I will keep you safe. There is a deep, deep yearning in your heart for safety and security. You can mask these longings with activity for a time, but only for a time. These feelings actually serve a very good purpose. Properly used, they can point you to Me and My sufficiency.

I am the only One who can really, ultimately keep you safe.

Whenever you start to feel insecure — about anything — come to Me. Talk with Me about your fears and concerns; then affirm your trust in Me. Voicing your trust connects you with Me at a deep level. It also pushes back the darkness of deception. The evil one has been deceiving people ever since time began, since the Garden of Eden. Do not listen to his lies. Instead, put your trust in Me, for I am absolute Truth. As you come to know Me — the Truth — better and better, I make you increasingly free.

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. — Proverbs 29:25

The Lord God said to the woman, ‘What is this you have done?’ The woman said, ‘The serpent deceived me, and I ate.’ — Genesis 3:13

Jesus said to [Thomas], ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ — John 14:6 (NKJV)

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. — John 8:32 (NKJV)
