W.E. Vines Bible Dictionary says this "truth," is used (a) objectively, signifying "the reality lying at the basis of an appearance; the manifested, veritable essence of a matter"
the truth of God" is indicative of His faithfulness in the fulfillment of His promises as exhibited in Christ; the word has an absolute force in John 14:6; 17:17; 18:37, 38; in Eph. 4:21, "truth," not merely verbal, but sincerity and integrity of character.
Have you ever stopped to consider that without absolute truth we could have not have absolute confidence? You might be saying what do you mean. I mean that if we could not have absolute assurance in something, then we could have not have confident expectation of that which we are wanting to see come to pass. That is what assurance is, isn't it, confidence that what we believe is the truth, and the truth is absolute and unchangeable. It is something that you can put your full and complete trust in. Knowing something to be truth gives you the ability to put your complete trust and reliance in it.
God is truth, we can put our complete trust in Him.
