10: Opting For Truth

You were once hoodwinked by the lies of the deceiver. Custom-fit to your experience, molded around the tiniest kernel of truth, yet twisted beyond recognition, these lies diminished you as they took root in your deepest places. They did not tell the truth about who you are and what you’re worth. But as God’s Spirit spoke truth to your mind and heart, you began to recognize each lie. This noticing, allowing you to reject what is false and to choose for what is most true, is a gift! Exposed, the deceiver’s lies lose traction. Today you seize each lie that surfaces, recognizing it as an opportunity for freedom. You reject and replace the lies with what is most real and most true about you, about God, and about others. Clinging to God’s truth, you walk in freedom.
