7 Life-Changing Bible Verses About Truth
1. God pursues His sheep.
Every one of us was a lost sheep until we found our shepherd. Here’s the parable Jesus told:
“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” (Luke 15:4–7 NIV)
Like the rebellious sheep, we foolishly run away when our shepherd is chasing after us. We misunderstand His pursuit and have a hard time believing that He really wants to help us. But instead of punishing the sheep, look what the shepherd does in this parable – he gives up everything for the rebellious sheep to be found. And, when he’s finally safe, the shepherd rejoices.Like the rebellious sheep, we foolishly run away when our shepherd is chasing after us. We doubt He really wants to help us. But not only does he leave everything to find us, he rejoices when we’re found. Click To Tweet
2. Even while we’re destitute and far from Him, God wants us.
When I was troubled and alone, He was right there with me. Although I searched the world for the love and acceptance I was deeply craving, God’s plan was for me to find it only in Him.
6 “Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.” (Psalm 23:6 NIV)

3. We are precious in His sight.
Read this verse to see how God feels about you and who you are in His eyes.
“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I gave Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
Since you were precious in My sight,
You have been honored,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west;
I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
Bring My sons from afar,
And My daughters from the ends of the earth—
Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
(Isaiah 43:1–7 NKJV)
In God, there is redemption for comfort for His people, regardless of the circumstances. We are His and He doesn’t give up on those called for His glory.
4. His creation is wonderfully made.
“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good …” (Genesis 1:31 NIV)
That’s you! You were wonderfully made with intention and purpose, not as a clone to any other one of God’s created beings.God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. That’s YOU. Click To Tweet
5. Every person has value.
Since we belong to a loving Father, we ARE loved. And not only do we belong to Him, we were created by Him. God supervised our creation, watching over us as we were intricately knit together in our mother’s womb.
“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.” (Psalm 139:13-18 NIV)
Every single person is known and loved by the Creator God.

but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” (Romans 12:2 NIV)
