Change your words; change your world!
Nothing truer could be said. The words of lies lead to death. The words of truth lead to life.
John 8:32, “The truth will set you free.” If you have accepted a lie, such as, “I am unworthy,” replace it with the truth and observe the difference. Lies feel terrible, truth feels uplifting. In my work as a Christian counsellor, I am constantly helping people make that shift from painful, wounding words to a new story based on truth. What truth you ask? I mean the truth of Jesus Christ, either from scripture, or the truth that the Holy Spirit reveals to you in your mind when you ask. Psalm 91:15, “He will call upon me and I will answer him.” Don’t live any longer with the words that pull you down and hurt your spirit and soul. Change your world by changing the words that you accept about yourself. Listen to these words:
- Since you are precious and honoured in my sight and because I love you – Isaiah 43:4
- I praise you because I am fearfully and awesomely made – Psalm 139:14
- For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight – Ephesians 1:4
- For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. – Colossians 1:13
Allow the truth of God to change your life and your world. Pray! Listen! And ask God to reveal his truth to you. Then, accept the truth that he brings to your mind and live that truth out in your life.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1
