Today’s Affirmation is:
“I see the truth. I hear the truth. I know the truth.”
* A Message for You *
You EMPOWER what you believe. If you choose to BELIEVE a LIE its POWER over your life will grow until you IMAGINE it to be TRUTH. Then these imaginations will begin to distort & pervert the KNOWLEDGE of God as they form a house of thoughts or a stronghold in your mind that supports the tyranny of the LIE. If not confronted with the truth of God’s WORD it will grow unchecked & create a bondage so far-reaching that its tentacles are felt in every area of your life.
Does a lie have a hold on you? It could be something as simple as a lie you believed about YOUR APPEARANCE or as VAST as a DISTORTION of your IMAGE of GOD.
LIES seek to CONTAIN you & hold you captive. The LIES begin in a seed form, harsh words, a disapproving glance, a rejection, or even a comparison. Each story is different, but God’s truth remains steadfast and absolute. It is His deepest desire not only to set you free, but to banish your deepest and darkest fears. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 8:32 NIV
God wants to counteract the lies in your life with His freeing truth. He seeks to restore and reassign value to the precious, to discard the vile, and to breathe life, hope, and direction where there has been discouragement, death, and confusion.
Is there an area in your life where the LIAR, SATAN the ENEMY of our souls, has established a stronghold? Do you want to leave it in 2016? Are you ready to EMPOWER TRUTH & DISMANTLE the LIE?
If so, ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to see, your ears to hear, and your heart to discern these strongholds. Give God permission to change your perspective, and ask for the grace to embrace truth so it can bring forth fruit in your life.
