TRUTHS THAT SET US FREE (Lies we believe 5)

 TRUTHS THAT SET US FREE (Lies we believe 5)

Every area of bondage in our lives can be traced back to a lie we believe.  When we exchange God’s truth for a lie, we find ourselves in slavery to it (Romans 1:21-25).  The lie becomes our master (2 Peter 2:19) and we serve it.  We only have freedom when we ask God to show us the lies we believe (Psalm 139:23) and replace them with His truth (John 8:31-32).  Only as we know His truth will we be truly free.  There are hundreds of lies we could talk about, but it is better to learn His truth.  Counterfeiters are trained by studying real money for when they know it in detail they can tell anything that varies from it.  When we know God’s truth we can discern lies and deceptions of the enemy.  Listed below are basic truths about God.  I have adapted them from “Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free” by Nancy DeMoss.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD:

God is good in all He does (Psalm 136:1)

God loves us and wants the best for us (Romans 8:32-39)

God is enough to provide for all our needs (Psalm 23:1)

God can be trusted to keep His promises (Romans 8:1; 1 John 1:9; 2:25; Philippians 4:19; Hebrews 13:5)

God doesn’t make any mistakes, ever  (Isaiah 46:10)

God’s grace is sufficient no matter what (2 Corinthians 12:9)

THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS

Jesus totally accepts and fully completes us, unconditionally (Ephesians 1:4-6)

Jesus’ blood is sufficient to cover all sin (1 John 1:7; Psalm 103:12; Micah 7:19; Isaiah 44:22; Jeremiah 31:34)

Jesus’ work on the cross conquers all sin (Romans 6:6-7)

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit enables us to do anything God commands us to do (Philippians 2:13) including loving those who hurt us, rejoicing in difficulties, etc

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIBLE

God’s Word is sufficient to lead, teach and heal anyone (Psalm 119:105)

THE TRUTH ABOUT MYSELF

There is no higher, holier calling than to be married and/or a parent (Titus 2:4-5)

Personal holiness is more important than temporal happiness (1 Peter 1:16)

I am personally responsible for my behavior, responses and choices (James 4:17)

I will reap what I sow (Galatians 6:7-8)

I find true joy when I relinquish control to God or the authority He has placed over me (Matthew 16:25; Ephesians 5:21)

I don’t have to feel guilt about my past when I confess my sin (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

God is more concerned about changing me and glorifying Himself than about solving my problems (Romans 8:29)

I can’t grow in Christ-likeness without suffering (1 Peter 5:10)

My suffering will only be in this life (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)

It’s not about me, it’s all about Him (Colossians 1:16-18)

John 8:32  Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Think of some areas where you struggle.  Which of these truths apply to them?  What lies are you believing that allow these to be problem areas?
