Truth, not Lies
What lie or lies have your discovered? The strange thing about some lies is that they have been truth for you until you recognized they were lies. So many people are living with so many lies. Some they were told and some they have believed themselves. How about you? These lies have helped shape your view of so many things.
So many people everyday are so engulfed in their lies that it is hard for them to see truth or accept truth. So they make what looks like truth, but that is a lie. And they lie- about anything and everything. They don't have to live that way. You don't have to live that way either.
Jesus' work on the cross solidified His truth for our lives. We can live free of lies.
If you have recognized what you feel is not truth then ask Holy Spirit to show you the truth. Here is the crazy part- we were not meant to live our lives all "lied out." Can you see how much peace is there for you without the lies? Let's start with just one lie. Allow Holy Spirit to guide you. Wait until you hear the truth from Holy Spirit. When you hear it, are you ready to accept it? Great. Hold on to the truth, and when you hear the lie, you can stand on truth. It takes a minute, but it is on the way to your healing.
May I help you? Fear is a big lie, and you can see how fear plays out in so many ways: Fear of failure, fear of people that don't look like you, fear of dogs, fear of being found out, fear of your manhood/womanhood. I could go on and on, I've heard so many unfounded fears yet they are very real to that person. I know it is a lie, "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline" (2 Tim.1:7NIV). Live. Live in God's truth for your life. enough for now.
