The most powerful weapon against Satan’s lies is God’s truth. The best way to counteract the destructive power of lies in our lives is to intentionally focus on Scripture.
Nancy and Dannah share some great ideas for places to post Scripture when you are trying to overcome lies in Lies Young Women Believe, including:
- your rear-view mirror
- the back cover of your Bible
- your lunch box
- your best friend’s bedroom
- your mom’s purse
- your locker
- your MySpace or Facebook page
- your computer
- your bathroom mirror
- beside your bed (Lies Young Women Believe, 181).
The point is that when you are battling lies, you need to get practical. Look for specific verses in God’s Word that counter those lies. Then saturate your life with God’s truth. Meditate on those verses often. Post them where you can see them regularly. Revisit those passages anytime you are struggling or in need of encouragement.
I know this group of readers well enough to guess that many of you are already using God’s Word in this way. I’d love to hear about it. What is your favorite verse in Scripture? How do you use that verse to meditate on truth?
To help you get a jump-start on replacing lies with truth in 2010, I’m going to give away Nancy’s brand-new Choosing Gratitude calendar to the first 10 readers to leave us a comment answering the two questions above.
