"So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free." John 8:31,32
My hope is that you have begun to unravel some of your core lies and the goals you have made because of them. My hope is that you will deal with and repent of your core lies so that you can live authentically and be used in mightier ways by God...so that you will mature and not put your lies onto others.
Find your identity in Jesus, not in yourselves or what others think about you. You don't need to be perfect or good enough or smart or pretty or in control, etc. Just be who God created you to be. Push out the enemy and believe that God is the only one who has the authority to tell you who you are...the only one.
If you don't know the truth, go to the cross. Bend a knee and allow the God of the universe to speak into your heart. Stay awhile and soak in the greatest love you will ever know.
Struggling with believing lies is something that won't end on earth. From time to time things will come up that need to be dealt with. Keeping your journal of emotions will be helpful when you need to discern what's going on inside you and if there is a lie that needs confronted. Confront it.
I realize that some lies and goals go very deep and are not so easily uncovered. If this is the case for you and you are having trouble discerning why you are in bondage in a particular area in your life, I would recommend some serious prayer. Email me,would you? I will send you a prayer guide that will help you to see your lies and goals. Sometimes we need to know the whys and the where's to fully be set free.
I pray that all of us would continue to seek the truth and say "no more" to the ultimate lie giver.
