Lies and Truth

I will never forget the first time he said the words to me.  They hit me like a wrecking ball to an old brick building. 

"You are believing lies."

But, I knew it was true.  My husband was reminding me that I was choosing to believe the lies of the enemy over the truth of my Father. 

Priscilla Shirer says that believing lies is the same as a warrior headed to battle without a helmet (the helmet of salvation).  We are entering war without protecting our mind with truth. 

It seemed silly.  Why would a person do this?  But, I know the answer.  The lies are easier to believe.   

As promised in last's weeks Periscope {click to view}, below is a list of lies and truth verses to replace each lie.  I encourage you to take this list to your Quiet Time and let the truth soak deep into the pores of your soul.  Then as suggested in my video, post these around your home using 3x5 cards or post-it notes, and write these truths in your Quiet Time Journal.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.  (2 Timothy 1:7)

I am able.  (II Cor. 9:8)

It's not worth it.
