When disappointments come from all directions, it’s easy to throw in the towel. Spiritual warfare is all around us. But, one of the most dangerous battles is the one that goes on your head. It’s the lies that you tell yourself when your tired of fighting that propagate and have the potential to throw you into a dark, black hole. Don’t’ let them win. Combating lies with truth is an excellent technique that will help you get clarity and pull you out of the darkness. It may not be an instant fix, but over time, it works.

Combating Lies with Truth

I spent quite a bit of time this week refocusing and combating lies with truth. It was the first step in feeling better about the constant pain that I have in my knee.

Here’s my process.

  1. Identify an area in your life that you feel is unhealthy. It could be a viewpoint on your looks, health, relationships, or priorities.
  2. Pray for God to grow or direct you as you enter into this time of reflection.
  3. Search the Bible for verses related to that topic to discover what God wants you to know about it.
  4. Observe what the Holy Spirit is trying to tell you.
  5. Decide on the verse that you’ll focus on.
  6. Write down your lie without editing it. You should write it exactly how you “say it” in your head.
  7. Reread the verse that combats the lie.
  8. Write down what the verse says about the lie. You can rewrite the Scripture as well.
  9. Reflect on what you’ve discovered as much as you need to.
  10. Over time you will naturally begin to shift your negative thoughts to righteous ones.

Every time I do this exercise I realize that the lies I tell myself are ridiculous. To believe them is to accept defeat. That’s not ok with God and it’s not ok with me.
