Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the trap is broken and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
Have you ever felt trapped by the lies inside your head? Those thoughts you have and the inner narrative you tell yourself every single day? Words that tear you apart and keep you pinned to the same old habits and patterns?
Maybe your inner thoughts might sound like this:
I’m an idiot
Everyone is looking at me
I’m not as capable as my friends
I’m not that smart
I’m not pretty
I’m a looser
I just can’t do it
I’ll be in this place forever
I’m a failure
The list can go on for long time, until it feels like we are prey being torn apart by our own thoughts.
When we are able to recognize that it is the enemy feeding lies into our mind, we are then able to see the truth that He has made a way of escape for each of us. The blood of Jesus broke the trap and left the door wide open for us to walk through, we simply have to walk.
In my own life when I recognized that my narrative of self- defeat was from the enemy, I began to search for the truth that would combat every lie that came into my mind:
God created me to be unique and creative.
God has given me a powerful voice.
God is good to me all the time.
I am favored and loved by God.
I have help for everything that I need.
I am capable.
What are the lies you hear from the enemy that keep you from escape? The trap is broken, the door is open, freedom is yours!
