We often get stuck believing lies about who we really are.
What are the lies you’ve most believed about yourself? Take a moment to ponder that. Can you name them?
Did you know that when you identify those lies, they give you keys to your true identity?
The enemy always shows his hand. When he convinces you of a lie about yourself, name it, and look for the opposite. That is your true identity.
For example, if the enemy has convinced you, your whole life, that you are stupid, you are actually brilliant. If the enemy has convinced you that you have no worth, the Lord wants to teach you your worth.
Whatever the enemy has taught you about yourself, turn that around, and there is your identity.
Moses stuttered and he was called to lead nations. Do you see how the enemy attempted to kill, steal, and destroy his identity? (John 10:10)
What lies have you believed about yourself?
What is the opposite of those lies?
That is your truth.
Spend some time bringing those two questions to God. Let them sit a while in your heart. See what you hear.
Write your answers in your journal: What are your lies? What is the opposite of each lie?
Now pray and ask God to help you step out of each lie and into your true identity.
