Truth, Trust, and Transparency
By Sandi Holman
In a dream recently, I was traveling on a long road and every few feet there was a ‘YIELD’ sign for miles.
Then all at once I saw a sign that said, ‘TURNAROUND’, but
the turnaround was a very sharp turn and the road that I found myself on was very narrow.
There were very few cars on the road, but the road was straight where the first road was curvy, almost mountainous.
I knew that this was a road I had never traveled before, but the scenery was very green fields and tall trees.
I woke up and said out loud, “LORD, what was
that about?” And The LORD said, “I AM calling My People to a time of total yielding.
What you choose or decide in this time of TURNAROUND will set the pace for what tomorrow brings.
In this hour of testing, I AM causing you to find Me in obscure places and you will come to understand that I AM in all things.
I AM with you and for you and have
given you much truth even when you were unaware. Stay on the narrow road even when you experience dissipation… when things seem to disappear, or just dissolve, or seem to have vanished into oblivion.
Know that your resources are not gone and they are not limited. When your plans have been disrupted or your plans did not work, I was there smiling knowing that my plans for you are perfect and complete lacking nothing.” (Psalm
As I penned this, I thought about the beautiful revelatory Word that my friend, Angus MacKillop posted recently “Prayers Answered — Before Being Asked”.
So true and how easily we forget His Omnipotence at times. He also sent me back to my journal to re-read a word He once spoke to me when The LORD told me HE was creating a body of TRUTH LOVERS and stirring up a desire for TRUTH in the hearts
So I share that word today, exhorting you to be immersed in TRUTH that you might TRUST WHOLLY IN GOD and walk with a TRANSPARENT heart.
am quoting a portion of another word that The LORD spoke to me — published by HKP as “The Journey of Truth” September 20, 2019.
Today, if you hear His voice, I urge you, do not harden
your heart but allow the truth to actually bring total healing and wholeness to your heart.
Be willing to say, “LORD, what are you showing me in my heart?” New Revelation tends to shake
us up, wake us up, stir us up, and bring us to another place of choice or decision in our walk with Jesus.
We have to first choose to be willing to live with the temporary pain that reality often brings.
The truth is painful at times but it does set us free. The result of fresh Revelation from The Spirit of Truth will begin to transform our hearts from Fear to Faith.
I heard The Father say, “I
have been taking you on a journey from Truth to Trust to Transition and back to Trust with your whole heart and on to transparency that you may move into true identity in Me.”
The chaos we are experiencing
will have an end result of re-establishing hearts of God’s People which will result is a firm foundation of Truth.
As we examine TRUTH and TRANSPARENCY, we see they go hand in hand. We can’t
truly have one without the other.
When we take the hand of The LORD to walk hand in hand, we must come to the place of trusting with our whole heart, leaning not to our own understanding, but in all ways,
When we come as a little child in childlike faith, we come with a pure heart and innocent trust. It is when that purity is defiled and trust is broken and that child is wounded,
then the picture so often gets distorted.
Shall we say then, just like the well-known poem: “Children learn what they live”.
is bringing many full circle, to that innocent Trust they experienced in their childhood.
When we cannot be transparent, what do we have to hide?
the pride of our heart deceived us?
Are we truly open to truth?
What LIE have we believed that shadows or hides the real truth?
OPEN and BROKEN!
When I learned that Openness and Brokenness is a part of my relationship with The Father, I understood what true humility is and I found that true servanthood will be developed
as I trust HIM alone.
So when my Openness and Brokenness offends others, The LORD is revealing what is in all of our hearts.
Likewise, when my Openness
and Brokenness allows GOD to strip and deliver me from the FEAR of MAN, then I am truly exposed to and ready to be filled with The Fear of The LORD — which is the beginning of wisdom.
So many times
in the last few years my intercession has been that we would all be filled with The Fear of The LORD and serve HIM with fear and trembling. Naked, not ashamed, nothing to hide!
It has been said,
‘the Truth can walk naked — but a lie always needs to be dressed’. I believe we must be prepared to allow The LORD of Glory to strip away all superficiality, religious reasoning’s, and pious pretending’s.
It is time to GET REAL! That means being honest before God and man…..
I remember when I came back to The LORD many years ago, someone asked me how could I expose my sin, and I said,
“If God already knows it, what does it matter if anyone else knows it?”
Looking back, I realize that was one of the first major TRUTHS I discerned. The reality of that is, God alone sees
and knows our heart.
As I am writing this, I hear The LORD saying, “Come away with Me, My Beloved. I AM Calling you. I will empower you to walk in the three fold cord of TRANSPARENCY
AND TRUTH AS YOU TRUST Me with all your heart.
I AM The WAY, The TRUTH, and The LIFE.”
As I read T.D. Jakes‘ book a few years ago, “Naked
and Not Ashamed”, he said,
“We have been afraid to reveal what God longs to heal. In order for healing to come, we must be naked and unashamed.
“Tell us something that makes us comfortable with our own nudity. We have carefully hidden our struggles and paraded only our victories, but the whole country is falling asleep at the
That, my friends, is something to “chew on”…. ”comfortable with our own nudity…” SELAH.
we examine these truths in today’s world of evil manipulation, lies, broken trust, and hidden motives, I look back on the early history of America and remember Abraham Lincoln was known as “HONEST ABE” and George Washington was often spoken
of as a leader that did “not tell a lie” even in the story of “he cut down the cherry tree.”
So as I look at how truth is part of our Court System when a witness must swear on a
Holy Bible to tell, “the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God”.
In the beginning our governing body functioned on the basis of Truth.
I can remember growing up, I would hear my grandfather speak of someone that, “He is a man of his word.” In other words, you can trust him.
So I leave you with this Word of
“The fear of man is a snare, but whoso trusts in The LORD shall be safe,” Proverbs 29:25.
The one thing I believe is
the greatest need in the WORLD today is The Fear of The LORD.
The LORD said to me, “Daughter, I AM paving the highway of HOLINESS with TRANSPARENCY”.
As I looked up the word pave, I found it means to clear the way for. The LORD of all the earth is paving the highway of holiness with TRUTH, TRUST AND TRANSPARENCY.
Won’t you join me in
yielding to the building of that highway?
The LORD is searching for yielded vessels.
We shall be HOLY as He is HOLY. I encourage you today to
let God be God and every man a liar.
