Are You Believing These Lies?
I will never forget the first time he told me the words. I hit me like a wrecking ball to an old brick building.
"You are believing lies."
But, I knew it was true. My husband reminded me that I was choosing to believe the lies of the enemy over the truth of my Father.
It seemed silly. Why would a person do this? But, I knew the answer. The lies were easier to believe. In order to get out of the slump I was in, I had to get out of the pit and climb into my Daddy's lap.
Below are a list of "Lies vs Promises" and verses that go along with each. I encourage you to take this list to your Quiet Time and let the truth soak deep into the pores of your soul.
