Know the Truth
Copyright by Freedom in Christ, used with permission.
One of the keys to emotional health is to commit yourself to believing what God says is true even if it doesn’t feel true to you. Remember: you can't feel your way into good behavior, you behave your way into good feelings. Start by choosing to change what you believe, that will work out into your behavior, and finally your feelings will fall into line.
Have you spotted any lies that you believe as you have been though the course so far? Start to write them down somewhere (there’s space on pages 201-204 of your Freedom In Christ Participant’s Guide) – it can be very helpful to keep notes about what God is saying to you, and will help you to see what you need to do next.
You will learn a process called “stronghold-busting” later in the course that will help you replace those lies with what is true and so renew your mind.
