“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:19 (NLT)
Does it seem hard to believe some of the Scriptures? We read today’s passage and if we listen closely, we can hear an inner dialog start to deny whether it is true or not. It may be, “Why should God help me?” “God didn’t help me last time.” It could be a muffle sound from a deeper level saying, “I don’t deserve His help.” “It will never work out.” These are lies that keep us from believing the truth of God’s love for us. I wish I could simply say, “Hey, stop believing a lie and believe the truth” and everything will work out. But it isn’t that easy. You see, lies often serve a purpose and until the need for the lie is taken care of, we will keep lying to ourself. If I am hurting because of a trauma I experienced, then simply pointing out the lies I believe will not change anything. I need Jesus to help heal the pain from my trauma, then I will be free to destroy the lie. We need to get beyond the lie that God will never help me and ask, “What happened that I feel that way?” Bring that pain to God, ask Him to heal your pain and then you will find the ability to believe the truth.
Father, I am often hampered by lies I choose to believe instead of believing Your word. I have wounds, hurts, scars that have left me believing the wrong things. I need you to heal me. Lord, come visit my pain. Speak truth to my heart. Heal me. Set me free to believe the truth of Your love for me. I pray in Jesus’ name.
