I read this on a daily devotional site today. It is very good and I thought I would share. Daily we are faced with lies from so many sources and it is very easy to listen to them and get swayed from the truth. We need the guidance of Christ and the Holy Spirit to help keep us on track. May your heart and mind be on God’s truth today so that you have the strength and power to believe and walk in the truth! Choosing the truth can be hard when we don’t know what it is but as we seek God asking him to show it to us I believe he meets us, teaches us, and in his timing reveals the truth to us.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
For every truth there is a lie waiting to deceive us. Why is it so much easier to believe a lie? Why can doubt have so much impact on belief? A million people can believe the truth and yet one dissenter will get the nation’s attention. It is that way in the spiritual realm. Paul writes that we are significant. Specifically, “we are God’s masterpiece created to do the good things he planned for us to do” and what do we believe? Be honest, don’t we often believe we are no good, inferior, damaged goods and even hopeless? Where did that come from? It didn’t come from God! If we want to change what we believe, we must renounce the lies. Do it today. Lift up your heart and say it out loud, “I renounce the lie that I am no good, inferior, damaged goods or hopeless.” My friend, it is time to believe the truth about yourself. You are significant. You are a masterpiece made by God Himself. He absolutely loves you and desires you to accept the love He has for you. Renounce the lies; today choose to believe the truth.
