I am continuing “Truth for Thursday” here at Being Refined As Silver. We are on the last chapter of “Lies Women Believe”, chapter 11: “The Truth That Sets Us Free”. It will take several weeks to review this chapter, so I hope you will continue to come back each week.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss encourages her readers to take time to savor these liberating, life-changing truths. She suggests saying each Truth aloud, again and again until your thinking becomes aligned with God’s way of thinking.
Here is the first truth:
God is good.
“You are good, and do good; Teach me Your statutes.” Psalm 119-68
“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” Psalm 136:1
It is easy to believe this when everything is going well for us. It is easy for us to see the blessings we have then. But what about when things get rough? The Enemy will move in and cause us to question God’s goodness. You may start to think “Does God really know what He is doing? How can this be for my good and His glory? Is God really good to His people?”
When these lies start to flood your mind, remember what God’s Word tells us. The truth is God is good and everything He does is good. It does not depend on our circumstances, our feelings or our thoughts. Won’t you join me today in hiding God’s Word in our hearts? May it wash away any thoughts that question God’s goodness.
