It’s amazing to see that as a grown woman, I still find myself battling the lies that Satan spews at me that says “You’re not worthy of love. You’re not beautiful! You’re the lowest of low. You’re not valuable.” In the lies that rang in my head daily lies the insecurities I allow to ring true in my heart over and over again. It’s also amazing to see how God almighty, gives me just what I need from His word to combat the lies being spewed. Today I find truth to combat the lies that Satan spews at me as I park it in Psalm 139. As I read this passage I plugged my name in so that it can be personal for me and I pray Lord give me the faith to hear your word and obey it.
What I gain from God’s word is far more VALUABLE than any lie that Satan tries to make me believe. Here is what the Lord reminds me as I battle my own thoughts. He says, ” Tristin I have searched and I know you. I know when you sit down and when you stand up. I understand your thoughts from afar and observe your travels and when you rest. Tristin I know all your ways and before you even speak I know all about what you’re about to say. Tristin I surround. I am your fortress and I have placed my Hand on you. ” He reminds me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. He tells me that when I was formless He saw me and all my days were written in His book and planned before a single one of them began.
I like David, can’t even began to understand God’s knowledge but I praise Him. I praise Him for his sovereignty. I praise Him because his thoughts about me are so VALUABLE. I praise Him because He is my protector. I also echo what David says when he says “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.”
To every lie Satan spews there’s God’s word to combat it! That’s where we find our tactics to fight and I was reminded of that today! Good day people!!!!
Good post! I like your perspective on Psalm 139 🙂
I can so relate to your feelings but I have learned that when I take my eyes off of me and look to others and what and how I can serve Him, I am better. It is not about me, it’s all about Him.He is so worthy of all I am an can be for Him. Love you. MYRA MCILWAIN
