Quiet Moments With God -- The Power of Truth

Truth is powerful. It is triumphant. It offers freedom and comfort. It will set us free.

Why then do we listen to lies?

Satan whispers--You're no good, You'll never amount to anything. You can't overcome. Your faith is too weak. You're a fool. It's not that bad, everyone else is doing it. God's not real. The Bible is just a book.

What lie are you listening to? I'm still learning to discern truth from lies. Today I accepted a lie--You'll never get better. And then the Lord spoke truth to me and I heard Him.

While it's true my physical condition may not improve as much as I'd like, I will get better. And God has promised that no matter what happens to my physical body, one day I will arrive in heaven with a new and perfect body. While I walk this earth I will grow and I will be transformed. I know this because God stands with me. He will strengthen my will, my heart and my faith. My spirit will grow stronger and I will be better. God uses all things, even suffering.

I'll continue to do all I can to strengthen my body, but more importantly I will continue to pray and to trust in God who created me. I will NOT listen to the enemy. Instead I will remember God said, "He who is in you is Greater than he who is in the world."

Don't listen to lies. The Truth will set you free.

Grace and peace to you from God.

  5. well I posted it on my jelspeaks blog. if ya watch to check it out!

  6. Thank you, Jel. Awesome!

  7. There is power in truth, isn't there? Interestingly enough today the sermon was on the freedom to choose. About how 'the world' says that Christians are limited by too many rules.

    One of the best points made: If you choose to follow Satan, he ensnares ever so gradually until you become his slave. No freedom there at all.

    Favourite scripture: John 8:32 ...and the truth shall set you free.

    I think both fit nicely with your post on the power of truth.

    I am sorry you are still battling health issues. I will continue to pray that you find relief and patience and understanding and peace with the physical condition you are in now and of course, healing prayers for a release from the pain in the future.

    And your new book is on my TBR pile. I'll be reading it this week! Yaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!

  8. Kav, thank you so much for your prayers. And I'm glad to hear my book is on your TBR pile. I hope you enjoy it.

    Grace and peace to you.
