More Truth from "Lies Women Believe"

Here is more truth for us all the cling to from my bible study "Lies Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss.  This is taken from pages 198-199 in the chapter on Emotions.

*God's word promises, "I am with you always" (Matthew 28:20). Therefore, we don't have to be overcome by loneliness.

*God's word promises, "My God will meet all your needs" (Philipans 4:19). Therefore, we don't have to stay awake at night worrying about how the mortgage will get paid.

* God's word promises, "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken." Therefore, we don't have to live in dread of an uncertain future.

*God's word says, "Do not be afraid." (John 14:27). That means we don't have to give in to fear; regardless of our circumstances.

*God's word says, "Don't worry about anything" (Philippians 4:6), That means in the midst of stressful circumstances, we don't have to be anxious.

*God's word says, "Give thanks in all circumstances" (1 Thessalonians 5:18) That means we can choose to be thankful, even when everything around us seems to be falling apart.

*God's word says, "Love your enemies" (Matthew 5:44). That means, by the power of the Spirit, we can choose to love anyone ~ not matter how greatly they have wronged us.

*God's word says, "If you hold anything against anyone, forgive him" (Mark 11:25). That eans there is no one we cannot choose to forgive, no matter how deeply they may have hurt us or sinned against us.

When we fix our minds on Christ and bring every thought into subjection to the Truth, the Holy Spirit sanctifies our emotions and grants supernatural grace, comfort, and peace:

"Since then, you have been raised with Christ. Set your hearts o things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things."  Colossians 3:1-2
