Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. Galatians 5:1 msg
I do NOT want to go back to being a slave to my flesh and if you are a child of God, you don’t have to be a slave either. One of the things I do to keep myself from going back to slavery is to learn to examine my thoughts, to decipher the lies I’m believing. The battle really is in the mind as Joyce Meyers says. I’m apart of facilitating a class at my church on Wed. night. We are learning how to live in the freedom Christ gave us. I thought I’d share our life work assignment from this week with you.
Look at this list of lies. Pick 3 that jump out at you.
- What is the lie you are believing?
- How does this lie show up in your life right now?
- Do you know where the lie originated? If so where? If not ask God to show you.
- Now look at this list of things God says about you. Find a truth that over rides your lie and then write the truth and write the scripture on a 3×5 card.
- Renounce the lie. Ask God to replace that lie with the truth.
- Keep your 3×5 card handy and this list of truths so that you can renounce that lie every time it pops up it’s ugly head.
