Lies We Tell Ourselves

Just as our bodies get overloaded during the week and need a chance to reboot, our minds get just as cluttered. The enemy would like nothing more than for us to believe the confusion and the lies that he so subtly places there when we're tired and overflowing.

But the truth of God's Word will always hold the power over our lives and our minds.

Do any of these lies sound familiar in your own mind?

* The lie: I'm just worthless.
* The truth: For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Corinthians 6:20

* The lie: Tomorrow will be just like today.
* The truth:  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:33-34
* The lie: I must be lacking something.
* The truth: And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power. Colossians 2:10

* The lie: I'll never have a real purpose in this world.
* The truth: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9

* The lie: I'm so unloved.
* The truth: But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7

* The lie: I just can't do anything right.
* The truth: Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:11-13
