Day 6 / 100 Days to More ~

Posted by on Jan 6, 2019 in Blog | 0 comments

The lies we believe harm us in ways that even the most definitive words are unable to properly convey. It’s hard to believe sound truth if our mind is flooded with confusion, false stories, and negative opinions. These condemnations stem from the enemy, not God above.

When thoughts like, “You got zero talent, you’ll never make it, you’re not smart enough” begin to emerge, you must resist the lies. Or, thoughts that begin to swirl about others, “She has big dreams, but won’t go anywhere. She has more excuses as to why she doesn’t start than… He isn’t smart so he won’t achieve his goal.” Those lies emerge because we’re insecure and hurting. When we hear a lie, we may treat it like truth, and then we allow it to define us like a label. However, the only label we need to believe is the one God has already given us. That’s how we should treat ourselves and each other. God created us fearfully and wonderfully made. If we want more in life then believe His truth and resist the lies bonding us to despair. Lies only hurt us and how we view others.

Action: Start today and do this for an entire week. Every time you begin to label yourself or someone else, stop and write it down. At the end of the week, count how many times you allowed lies to stop you. You’ll be surprised at the number. Next, pray and ask God to protect your thinking and learn how to think of His label for you.
