Truth is a Person

There are lies and limiting beliefs. Lies want you to agree with them so they can warp your identity, and what you believe about God’s. They’ll have you keep arguing with them, endlessly and exhaustively battling them in your own strength.

Limiting beliefs are worse in a way, because though they’re also lies, they contain some truth that promises freedom, yet keeps you stuck right where you are. They’ll tell you it’s wisdom to not risk change, that staying in your present course, even if it’s causing pain, is the definition of faithfulness. They’ll say God will only move in your life when you’ve finally performed well enough to get your life in order. Limiting beliefs define the limits of how you see God, and how you see yourself through his eyes.

If you want to live in truth beyond lies and limiting beliefs, then start by remembering truth is a person. Jesus is truth itself. He is perfect theology, perfect peace, and perfect love. No lie or limitation has power to condemn you as less than, because he is always more than. No matter who has lied to you, or tried to contain you, you can live every day in his presence and in his word, seeing people, circumstances, and yourself as he does.

“Jesus explained, ‘I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through union with me. To know me is to know my Father too. And from now on you will realize that you have seen him and experienced him’” (John 14:6-7, TPT).
