It’s difficult for me to help a client who ignores truth and thus, they often forfeit their freedom. For example, if I am representing a drug addict and the evidence is that she was arrested with a baggie of heroin and was high as a kite–thus, the prosecutor has an airtight case against her–then we need to be talking about rehabilitation. She needs to show the court she can handle freedom. If she won’t acknowledge the evidence against her, then I can’t help her. Prison is probably the best place for her. Her reality is so distorted by the lie that drugs are good that she can’t handle her freedom.

We often have the same problem. We often refuse to acknowledge God’s truth. We’d rather believe the lies of Satan and the lies we tell ourselves. For example, why do we choose sin when we know it destroys us and separates us from a relationship with God? Why do we choose worry, fear, cursing, laziness, hate, selfishness, neglecting God’s house, and refusing to spend time with Him? Why isn’t He the most important person in our life? Simple: We think our way is better than His because we are deluded. If we want to live free from the chains of sin, then we must acknowledge that God’s way is best. Truth opens our eyes and frees us; lies blind and bind us. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (‭John‬ ‭14:6)‬‬ http://bible.com/1/jhn.14.6.kjv We must pursue His way!

I spent most of my life working to make myself rich, beautiful and prosperous and happy. I tossed God my leftovers like–church attendance and tithing. I played the game of Christianity. It was a lie. I lived in the prison of hypocrisy. When I finally acknowledged the truth that God was better than the sin of my own way–He set me free. He taught me how to live for a glorious purpose! To continue to live in truth, I diligently study His Word and passionately develop my relationship with Him. Living in God’s truth has given me such remarkable freedom that I never want to go back to the slavery of lies!
