Twenty two liberating truths

I love a website called True Woman. They’re a women’s ministry in America, and they have awesome resources. Paula Hendricks, one of their bloggers, recently posted “Twenty two liberating truths on Independence Day.” Now, not being America, Independence Day isn’t particularly relevant to me. But these truths are relevant, regardless of what day it is. And being 22 years old, I was drawn to them myself.

I would love to hear your views. There are a few contraversial ones in there.

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. If it is 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)

One thought on “Twenty two liberating truths

  1. Hello Courtney,

    These are really interesting and a lot of them hold a lot of beautiful truth I believe (:

    It seems to me though that a couple of them don’t align with the bible verses that they have suggested in brackets – whether this be because they are taken out of context, or simply because of what they say doesn’t match what is written or maybe take it incredibly literally. Almost like the bible verses have been found to match the statements instead of the statements being based upon the bible.

    I also believe that some of them take some things to the absolute extremity and present God too literally and black and white if this makes sense??

    Lots of them to present of truth and are beautiful and honest reminders of the personal love and grace of our God.

    Love Natasha.
