Lie #5: “I Am Who Others Say I Am”
We tend to accept what others say about us as the truth about who we are. And it may be—as long as it aligns with what God says about us too. At some point, we have to deliberately choose to put those lies behind us. Until we’re in heaven we won’t see the complete picture—even about who we are. But we can begin to look into God’s truth and ask him to show us what we need to know. This process takes time. It’s not simple. It will feel awkward, uncomfortable, and as if what you’re telling yourself isn’t real at all. But it is possible. The hard work that it requires means holding on to the truth no matter what your emotions may try to tell you instead.
