The devil loves destroying us with his destructive lies.
We as Christians simply have no need to listen to these lies anymore. We can fight it with Biblical truth. We are born again children of Light, who cannot afford to let glimpses of shadows try to take some of our precious shine or shimmer. Our Savior Jesus Christ died for us so that we can carry His Light throughout all generations. He gives you encouragement to start shining your light a bit brighter from this second forward.
I decided to share with you some of the lies that have been whispered into the ears of my heart in the past. The only way we can fight these lies off, is when we use the Word against it. To prove it Biblically wrong.
Lie number 1:
You cannot do anything.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Lie number 2:
You are not chosen.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
Lie number 3:
You need other people’s approval.
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Lie number 4:
If you are a Christian, then you should never experience any struggle of any kind.
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
Lie number 5:
You are worthless.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Lie number 6:
God does not listen to you.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
I encourage you to keep a Warrior Journal where you can write down similar lies and Biblical truths to remind you who you truly are. We are more than conquerers!
