Some of you may recall a month or so ago, I wrote about a dream I had…in the dream I had an interaction with Joanna Gaines and through it, God revealed a lot about His plans for me…then later, He told me that limiting beliefs were standing in my way. That topic circled back to me yesterday as I read a book. It was discussing limiting beliefs, and then I realized that when we live by those limits, we are living a lie.
It’s a lie for me to believe and live as if I can’t trust anyone. It’s a lie for me to believe and live as if I am too much and others will never understand me. It’s a lie for me to believe and live as if I am always doing the wrong thing…and the list goes on and on.
Yesterday, while reading that book, it challenged me to go back in my memory to the first trauma I remember, (which I’ve done for healing many times) but this time, I was looking for the limiting beliefs that were birthed in that place. There were a lot.
I don’t want to live a lie ever again. I want my mind and thoughts to be bathed in God’s truth. To replace every one of those lies with a truth from Him.
It humbles me to share all of this with you, but I know this season requires a level of humility I’ve never known before.
I’ve received a lot of heart healing in the past. I still receive it when necessary. I’ve seen God replace one lie after another with the truth. But this is the first time I’ve addressed belief in this way…and I am desiring two things…that I find new depths of healing and that I share this process with you so you can too!
Let’s stop living a lie. Let’s allow the truth to fill our minds. I wonder what heights we will soar to after today?!
Just remember this verse when you are establishing the way you see the world, yourself, and others…
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Philippians 3:8a
There are several good verses surrounding that one, but it shoots the arrow right into the heart of what should be our absolute focus. The only voice we should allow to speak into our minds, is Christ’s. Jesus alone is enough. He makes us enough. That is all. That is the truth.
I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with Him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with Himself depends on faith. Philippians 3:7-9
