His Encouragement – Truth and Lies

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!

  1. I’m so sorry that you are going through this dark valley. Know that you are never alone. God is with you and you have friends praying for you. ((hugs))

  2. I am so sorry that you are dealing with so much. I am glad that you recognize it all as lies from the devil, but I get that that doesn’t make it feel any better. I will continue to pray for you my friend. As I was reading your post today, God put Ephesians 6:10-18 on my heart for you. I know it’s a lot, but I’m feeling like you need the reminder. Lean on God. He’ll get you through all of this stuff.

    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

  3. I am so sorry to hear that you’ve been going through a hard time. I can relate to struggling with listening to the lies and needing to fill myself with the truth in God’s Word. I will be praying for you and if there’s anything more I can do let me know! I hope this summer we can get together sometime <3
