Bible Promises to Live Your Best Life
By: Raychel Chumley
You want to live your best life. I know that you do! You want to overcome obstacles and make a difference in this world. You have big dreams you want to accomplish. You want to believe the truth about you. You want your life to count for something. You know God has called you to do something, say something, or be something.
Well…Why haven’t you?
There could be a lot of reasons “Why.” Take a moment and really think about your life. Are you heading in the right direction? Are you accomplishing your goals? Are you living the amazing life God has designed for you? If your not, it’s time to make some changes!
We preach it all the time on the Big Blue Couch but it bears repeating…how you think is how you will act! If your life isn’t going the way you want it to- it could be because of you are stuck in toxic thinking. It sounds something like this:
- “I can’t.”
- “I’m too poor (young, fat, old, stupid, etc.,ect.).”
- “Someone else can do it better.”
- “I’m not good enough.”
- “I will fail.”
- “It’s too hard.”
Sound familiar? I thought so.
Sometimes the chatter in your head gets so loud that it literally drowns out the truth. You can get stuck in toxic thinking for years; and, not even realize you are believing lies. Whether you believe it or not, you have an enemy who loves to lie to you. He loves to twist the truth until you can no longer recognize it and keep you stuck in doubt and fear. He is a manipulator and wants nothing more than to cause you to doubt the calling on your life.
The good news is you have a choice! You can believe the truth or you can believe the lies. You can combat the negative thinking, the fear, and the chatter with the truth about you. You can hold fast to the blessings the Bible promises for your life. It’s so amazing to think that you have a God who loves you and wants you to know the truth about who you are and who you have been created to be! He wants you to live your best life, too!
The really good news is that God is not silent about how he feels about you, either. You can find so much truth in the pages of the Bible. Verse after verse speaks about the greatness inside of you, the truth about you, and the life God has created for you. Use it. It’s your weapon against the chatter and the lies.
I want to help you get started! I want to equip you with some serious weapons to help you live your best life and discover the truth about you. I want to share with you some common lies you probably believe about yourself right now…and the truth from a God who loves you:
Lie: You are a worthless piece of junk
Truth: I am a child of God (John 1:2)
Lie: You will never change
Truth: I am being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16)
Lie: Your life doesn’t matter…
Truth: God prepared work for me to do before I was even born (Ephesians 2:10-11)
Lie: God is disappointed in you
Truth: God says I am dearly loved (I Thessalonians 1:4)
Lie: You are a complete failure.
Truth: I am perfect and holy in God’s sight (Ephesians 4:24)
Lie: You don’t fit in anywhere.
Truth: I am part of God’s family (1 Peter 2:9-10)
Lie: You have no future.
Truth: My future is with God and it is guaranteed (2 Corinthians 1:21)
Lie: You should be ashamed of yourself.
Truth:There is no condemnation for me. Jesus took my shame away (Romans 8:1)
Lie: God is blessing everyone but you.
Truth: God has given me every blessing (Ephesians 1:3)
Lie: You don’t have what it takes..
Truth: God has given me everything I need (2 Peter 1:3)
Lie: God is really mad at you; in fact, He doesn’t love you anymore…
Truth: God has promised to not be angry with me. He has promised to never remove his love from me. His promise cannot be shaken (Isaiah 54:9-10)
The truth is everyone believes these things about themselves from time to time. But, a woman who wants to live the life of an overcomer has no room for these lies in her life. You can live your best life. You can overcome obstacles and make a difference in this world. You can accomplish your big dreams. You can believe the truth about you. You can be everything God has called you to be. I know you can! You have the power to combat this chatter and believe the truth about you and live your very best life!
I promise you that when you do… Your life will never be the same!
