The Liar of our Life

I remember thinking to myself, one day, that I hated my feelings. I didn’t want my heart to lie to me anymore, or to be controlled, or manipulated, by my heart’s desire for deceit

There have been so many times when my feelings have lied to me for me to believe that I was ok and not broken by events

My feelings have said to me that if I allowed that person back into my life again, then things would be better

My feelings told me that I loved a person, even though they hurt me in more ways than one

So many lies

All to get me to believe that I was doing the right thing. But the heartbreaking realisation was that it came from my own heart – my feelings kept telling me over and over again that it would be ok when in truth, they were destroying me, bit by bit

This song by Insight Music spoke to my Spirit last week. These are the songs that resonate with me because these type of songs skip the heart of lies and simply goes directly to the deepest part of me. The words become like honey to my soul, and it soothes – even muffles – the sounds of my heart so that there is a Spiritual transaction that takes place where God’s truths conquer the enemies lies and a more profound sense of freedom occurs

The words to ”Spirit lead me” is my prayer. It’s my deepest desire. So, when I am faced with future challenges, my heart is still muffled, and the Holy Spirit guides me

Friends, the Scripture that talks about us renewing our minds so that Christ’s thoughts become ours, but also, the Scripture that says that our lives need to reflect more of Him and less of us, will only occur when we stop listening to the lies of our feelings. The Bible talks about the heart being deceitful for a reason, and I don’t want to chase a fleeting feeling, when my Spirit – which is full of God’s wisdom – will always lead me to safety, and from a place of love

“Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe.”

Proverbs 28:26

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
