We all have beliefs that we cling to stubbornly, even in the face of evidence to the contrary. These are called lies, and they can damage our spiritual growth. The good news is that it’s possible to replace these lies with truth, but it takes effort and practical steps on our part. Here’s how to do it:
The first step is to saturate yourself in the scripture. Knowing what God’s word says about a particular issue makes it much easier to replace a lie with the truth.
Memorization is especially helpful when you’re doubting or feeling tempted to believe a lie. If you have the truth memorized, you can recite it and remind yourself of what’s true.
Another way to remind yourself of the truth is to write it down on index cards or in a journal. It can be especially helpful when dealing with a deeply ingrained lie in your thinking.
Talk about the lies you’re struggling with and the truths you’re learning with other believers. It will help solidify the truth in your mind, and it’s a great way to encourage and equip others as well.
If you’re serious about replacing lies with truth, why not study the issue in-depth and share what you’re learning with others? It is a great way to dive deeper into God’s word and learn more about what He has to say on the matter.
Taking these practical steps will help you replace the lies you believe with truth, setting you free to grow in your faith and experience all that God has for you.
What lies do you need to replace with the truth? What steps will you take to make sure the truth takes root in your heart?
