Happy Thursday reader friends! Welcome to another edition of His Encouragement, a weekly post my blogger friends and I do to lift your spirits and help you get through your week!
I just finished my bible study on Lies Women Believe and cannot even begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed this study. I know I’ve mentioned it a few times on the blog since I started it, but that’s how good it is! As I worked on the last chapter which really wraps everything up, this verse kept coming up in my mind.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.John 8:32
Lately I have had a lot going on. I have some health issues, which has been ongoing for awhile. It affects my moods and my attitude. This week especially I have had thoughts come into my mind about self worth, financial stability, my place at church, and even regarding friendships I have. The thing is, they are all lies. Lies that the enemy is trying to place in my heart, to put a wedge between myself and the Lord, or myself and the Godly people in my life.
I’ll admit it, sometimes I believe them. Sometimes I dwell on them. Yesterday was pretty awful. I was just miserable and cranky all day long. Why? Because I let the enemy’s lies penetrate my heart. Instead, I should concentrate on the truth. God’s truth. The truth that He loves me, cares for me, and will make everything ok.
Do you ever go through a spell where you are weary, worn, afflicted, beaten, or discouraged? I encourage you to remember this verse. God’s truth will set us free, whichever truth we need to hear in that moment. Ask God to show you a truth this week that you can apply to your current situation. I promise you that not only will He do just that, He will also bring you comfort as you think upon that verse throughout your day.
What’s been on your heart this week friends? I hope you’ll share in the comments, and please don’t forget to visit my friends and see what they’re sharing this week!
