Old Lies or New Truth

Old lies or new truth, what do you listen to? Specifically what do you speak in self-talk, old lies or new truth? Here’s some examples of old lies and new truths I’ve heard:

1. Old Lie: “You’re fat and ugly too.” This was the #1 lie I’ve heard throughout my life, a lie from Satan.                                        This picture was made in May 2013.

New Truth: You’re created in God’s image. So you’re beautiful. After all, God don’t make ugly. In fact He delights in you just as you are. And He sings over you too.

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love, He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV

2. Old Lie: “You’re a failure. You can’t stick to a diet. Even if you lost weight, you’ll just gain it back.” This lie competes with #1 for first place.Romans 8:28 and trust

Truth: With God on your side, you’re guaranteed victory. “Never a failure. Always a lesson.”

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV

But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV 

3. Old Lie : You’re older now, so its harder to lose weight. After all, your metabolism has slowed down to nothing. So why try? Just quit. Eat all you want and enjoy life.

New Truth: Eating, although pleasurable, is not the source of joy in life. Living in God’s Presence is the ultimate source of joy. And He will fill you with His joy, true joy unspeakable.

You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your Presence. Acts 2:28 NKJV

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV

4. Old Lie: Everything’s going wrong today. So go ahead, eat some comfort food. Then you’ll feel better. Food is comfort and pleasure. After all, you’re under a lot of stress. So get a treat.

New Truth: Overeating causes more stress. When your clothes get tight, the scales go up, and shame comes due to overeating, you have more stress.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6 NKJV

God’s Presence brings peace and victory. So what do you listen to, lies or truth? You choose.

Make Me Full

Lord, make me full of Your Holy Spirit? I want to be full of You this 2020. Show me how I can get full of You.

Make Me Full

Above All Else, The Way to Find Victory

 

To begin with, one must believe I died just for them, for their personal sins. And that I died so they may live. They must also believe after I spent 3 days in the tomb of death, that I rose again to eternal life. Then they must repent, and ask forgiveness for their sins.  (When you ask, I promise to forgive.) Finally, one must turn away from their sins and surrender their hearts and their lives to Me. Make Me Full

Some people forget this part. They continue on with their sinful life choices, choosing to live for their own selfish pleasures instead of seeking My will for their life.

Some people have the misconception that they can say a few prayerful words, shake a preacher’s hand,  and all is well. They believe the words of that prayer saves them. Not so. 

It’s a total heart and life surrender. It is My Presence within their heart. True repentance is a complete turning away from sins. It’s a total life change.

Prayerful words do not save you. But a real relationship with Me does. One must surrender their heart to ME. It’s all about a relationship with Me. 

None Are Excluded From His Love

I love ALL and exclude none from My love. But some exclude Me for they choose their own fleshly self-pleasures over My love. They reject My plan for their life and My love for them. They reject Me. Their life choices and rejection of My love for them grieves My heart for I know what they could have- eternal life and complete peace, My peace.

I long for My children to accept My love. But I will never force My love on anyone. Although I am the eternal, omnipotent God, I allow My children free will to choose whether to accept My love for them or not.

Those who choose My love will live forever in My love. Those who reject My love will forever be in rejection. I call to them, but they close their ears to My voice.

They chose eternal damnation. They determined the consequences of their life choices. 

But now I reach out to offer My love to you. What do you choose?

Within your love, Lord, I choose You. I want Your love and I want Your will in my life. So make me full of Your Presence, and Your Holy Spirit.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not of works, so that no one can boast.Ephesians 2:8 NIV
