Let me let you in on a little secret...
Satan is SO crafty. He knows just what lies to tell you to make you actually believe them. He's so cunning that he knows how to show up on your social timelines, in your conversations, and even in your own thoughts. He'll tell you so many lies about yourself until you don't even know the truth and sadly, won't even realize that you have fallen into his trap of lies. Satan is the epitome of negative vibes only.
Those feelings of self-doubt, your lack of confidence in your gifts and talents, and the thoughts of feeling unloved...that isn't the truth....that's Satan. He desires that you feel hopeless, purposeless, and fragile. He doesn't want you to know who and what you truly are. He doesn't want you to know what you truly possess inside of you.
But, let me let you in on an even BIGGER secret...
You don't have to accept Satan's lies! The Bible is full of truths about who you are and whose you are. In case you didn't know, here's a few for you to hold on to...
God has a purpose and a plan for your life.
For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. -Jeremiah 29:11
You are deeply loved.
For God so loved the world, the He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. -John 3:16
Your physical appearance, personality, and all the things that make you you were not by accident but by intention.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous--how well I know it. -Psalm 139:13-14
You are never alone.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9
You can do anything!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13
You are courageous.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. -2 Timothy 1:7
Just wanted to spill the tea with you on Satan's lies so you won't be out here actually believing him. Seek God's word for more truths about what He says you are. You are priceless and don't let Satan or anyone else tell you differently!
Now, make sure you don't keep this secret to yourself, but tell someone else who needs to know the truth. Also, let me know your thoughts in the comments on today's post and if you're feeling this From Heels to Laces look with laces.
Love, peace, and sole!
