Whether we like to admit it or not, our beliefs play a very big role in how our lives turn out.
But as I thought on this a bit more I realized something very important, something that has
changed the way I look at beliefs.
We were not born with beliefs!
That was an ah-ha moment for me. The light switched on!
We were not born with beliefs. We were not born with the idea of not being clever enough, or not rich enough,
not handsome or pretty enough and so on. We picked up those beliefs, we inherited them, we made a choice to
integrate them into our lives, the positive and the negative.
We don’t have to live with outdated beliefs about ourselves, life and the other things we deem as important.
The toxic beliefs we have picked up can be changed by YAH’s grace. You don’t have to live with toxic beliefs
any longer. There is an opportunity for change.
We didn’t know better and accepted and believed certain things but think about Gideon for a bit with me.
He had some toxic beliefs, outdated beliefs about himself.
“But Gideon answered, “Pardon me, Lord. How can I save Israel? My family group is the weakest in
Manasseh. And I am the least important member in my family.”
Someone told Gideon he was the least important. He accepted what people said about him and his
family at some point. He wasn’t born with those beliefs.
But thank YAH for His grace because He came and changed the negative beliefs Gideon had by using
him to deliver his people!
We need the Lord’s help friends. There are beliefs we have picked up that we don’t even know we have.
The Lord can shine the light and expose those beliefs.
Watch who you listen to. What are you accepting as truth about yourself?
Whose words are you accepting as truth for you?
These things all matter when it comes to adopting the right beliefs.
Blessings to you…..
Yes, what truth am I listening too? I have definitely picked up ‘truth’ that is untrue. And need the Lord’s help daily to shine expose and tattoo the real truth in me.
Thanks for sharing that Lynn.
We need to live by the real truth and we are so blessed because He has given it to us, His word. That’s the only truth we need….
