Your husband, wife, friend, or co-worker cannot hear it. It is that voice, not the audible one, it is that one that whispers un-truths in your ear. The spiral begins, the lies feel heavy as they inject into your heart, and the downwards tug begins its soul-winning happy dance.
It grabs you by the feet and attempts to suck you into the pits of the earth. Down you go, gulping for air. Wanting to see the light. Grasping for truth.
The truth is one step away. One powerful step. Prayer.
Call out to God.
Father, I am not going to listen to this lie! I call out to you, as I know it is your will, and it is in your power, to tell this evil lie so-long, goodbye!
I did my best. I do not need to apologize for the little things, nor the big things, that I am not capable of accomplishing. I refuse to accept responsibility for the happiness of everyone else. So, get away from me evil lie!
I ate four cookies. My diet is ruined. I will always be stuck with this weight. Wait, I did so well for weeks on end. I deserve a treat, so get away from me evil lie!
I could not sleep last night. I have such little faith. God is surely disappointed in me. God’s grace means he has forgiven me, already. Period. Do I trust (have faith in) him? Yes! Get away from me evil lie
I cannot say no to people that ask for my help. They need me. I have to take care of all of them. My mind is made up, I am supposed to have little or no time for myself. This is my fate. Oh…am I wrong? Did I hear my Father’s words, did He say we all must find time to be alone with Him? I can, and must, and WILL abide by his commands. I will also take care of me! Get away from me evil lie!
When you look at yourself, do you not see a Child of God? When you gave your life to Him, did you not say goodbye to those devastating evil lies? You did. You will likely, because you are flesh and blood, have to say it all over again, and again, and again. Promise to not beat yourself up, instead, repeat: get away from me evil lies!
The beauty of it is, we have a Father that will not allow this inner silent torment as we call out to Him.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit, apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 NIV
“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of age.” Matthew 28:20 NIV
“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear: I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13 NIV
I call out to you today to help those that are in the midst of an evil lie.
I ask that you search my own heart and reveal to me any lies that I have fallen for, for I do not want any disability to mar my walk with you.
My mission is to serve you, and to serve others so that they will also hear your words, and heed to your words only. For life is YOU, without you we have death.
I ask, I trust, I believe, and I say, through you – get away from me evil lies!
We (I) love you so very much.
In Jesus’ Name,
(Gone…simply gone…the sea has calmed…through our trust in Him…in His will. Evil lies, they are gone!)
