Do you feel empty? Feel not good enough? Do you feel powerless? If you answered “Yes” to any of them, you have the ability to correct this and can rescue yourself . The cause for these questions is because of the lies you have been told the majority of your life. The lies can be from depression, society, addiction, or anything else that is negatively affecting your life. Money, clothes, and personal items don’t determine who we are. It is our character, morals, beliefs, and dreams that make us who we are. Let’s tackle each one of these questions to see exactly why they are all lies and how you can rescue yourself.
The feeling of emptiness is a lie because it is the negativity telling you that you need to have more “stuff” to be happy. The “stuff” could be a person or an item, it all depends on the particular individual. You can spend your whole life searching for it and may never get it. Even if you do get it, the negativity will tell you that you need more and then the searching begins again.
“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.” – 1 Timothy 6:9 (ESV)
To rescue yourself, the truth is you have everything that you will possibly need in your life. It is found inside yourself and not it objects. Spend time enjoying life and be thankful for all that you have. Jesus didn’t have “stuff” and yet he had everything he ever needed.
The feeling of being not good enough is a lie because it is the negativity telling you that you lack the ability to be of worth or accepted. This lie causes you to search for anything and anyone that makes you feel like you have worth and be accepted, even if it is a bad situation. You will go great lengths to hold on to it once you find it, in fear of the feeling of worthlessness.
“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 1:6 (ESV)
The truth is that you are worth more than all the riches in the world, for you have a purpose in life. You might not know what that is but you must be patient and give it time. Some figure out their purpose in life sooner than others. To prove that I am right about your worth, ask your family and friends: “Why are you thankful to have me in your life?” You should know the answer to this question. In case you don’t, the answers they give will prove that the lie is WRONG. Jesus was not always accepted by others but he knew he had a purpose in life and didn’t let anyone tell him otherwise.
The feeling of being powerless is a lie because it is the negativity telling you that you will never be able to rise above the situations and circumstances you were born with. Whether it is a lack of money, a mental or physical condition or even the place you live, negativity tries to convince you that these determine who you are and what you are capable of. Again this lie is WRONG.
“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” – Luke 10:19 (ESV)
The truth is that you have been born with the power to rise above anything. You have the ability to overcome all the evil and negativity in your life. You must be patient and never give up on your dreams, even if people and circumstances try to fill your mind with doubt. There are many people that have reached their dreams by overcoming this lie. Find your internal fire that burns and always fuel it so that you will not lose sight of your dream. Jesus overcame death when people said that it was not possible.
You have the gift, power, and ability to rescue yourself from a life of endless searching for the wrong things. You must have faith in your mind, heart, and soul in order to overcome the negativity that the world has been filled with. God has placed you in this life with a purpose and you must be patient for the right door to open. Seek him and all your questions will be answered. Until my next post…Share. Inspire. Conquer.
