God the Holy Spirit – 34
The Holy Spirit of God is the Spirit of confession of truth

Acts 5:1-3 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. 2 And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?

The Holy Spirit confesses truth. These two early Church members did not confess truth. They lied. Peter says that Satan has filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit. This is very serious – serious enough to cause death. They persisted in the lie that Satan put in their hearts. The Holy Spirit knows when we are truthful and when we are not because He is the Spirit of Truth.

O God of Truth,
We confess truth before you. Your Holy Spirit in us confesses truth – You are the God of Truth. Only your Holy Spirit in us can keep us walking in your Truth. We purpose to be truthful in all things and at all times, as your Spirit controls our lives.
Amen
