Twenty-two Liberating Truths on Independence Day

As we celebrate the birthday of our nation and the freedom others won for us, I’m praying Jesus continues to free us up to fully live and enjoy the abundant life He made possible for us through His life, death, and resurrection! 

With that in mind, here are twenty-two liberating truths to wrap your arms and heart around this Independence Day, taken from Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ book, Lies Women Believe: And the Truth That Sets Them Free! You might want to print them out, or, like my cubicle-mate is doing, try memorizing these truths with their corresponding verses.

PS: Speaking of freedom, if you're afraid your past disqualifies you from investing in the next generation, today's Revive Our Hearts program is for you! Maryann Loveing joins Nancy Leigh DeMoss to talk about "Breaking a Cycle of Impurity."  

Twenty-two Liberating Truths for Today's Woman 

  1. God is good (Ps. 119:68; 136:1).
  2. God loves me and wants me to have His best (Rom. 8:32, 38-39).
  3. I am complete and accepted in Christ (Eph. 1:6).
  4. God is enough (Ps. 23:1).
  5. God can be trusted (Isa. 28:16).
  6. God doesn’t make any mistakes! (Isa. 46:10) Everything that comes into my life has been “filtered through His fingers of love.”
  7. God’s grace is sufficient for me (2 Cor. 12:9).
  8. The blood of Christ is sufficient to cover all my sin (1 John 1:7).
  9. The cross of Christ is sufficient to conquer my sinful flesh (Rom. 6:6-7). I don’t have to sin (Rom. 6:14).
  10. My past does not have to plague me (1 Cor. 6:9-11).
  11. God’s Word is sufficient to lead me, teach me, and heal me (Ps. 19:7; 107:20; 119:105).
  12. Through the power of His Holy Spirit, God will enable me to do anything that He commands me to do (1 Thess. 5:24).
  13. I’m responsible before God for my behavior, responses, and choices (Ez. 18:19-22).
  14. I will reap whatever I sow (Gal. 6:7-8).
  15. The pathway to true joy is to relinquish control of my life, husband, children, and circumstances (Luke 1:38; 1 Pet. 5:7; Matt. 16:25).
  16. The greatest freedom I can experience is found through submission to God-ordained authority (Eph. 5:23).
  17. In the will of God, there is no higher, holier calling than to be a wife and mother (Titus 2:4-5).
  18. Personal holiness is more important than temporal happiness (Eph. 5:26-27). Happiness is not a right.
  19. God is more concerned about changing me and glorifying Himself, than about solving my problems (Rom. 8:29).
  20. It is impossible to be godly without suffering. Suffering is a tool in the hand of God to conform me to the image of Jesus (1 Pet. 5:10).
  21. My suffering will not last forever (2 Cor. 4:17-18; Ps. 30:5).
  22. “It’s not about me; it’s all about Him!” (Col. 1:16-18)
