1. Do you believe that a lie is a lie, no matter how big or how small?
Of course! When my kids lie, it's not what they lied about that they get in trouble for, it's the fact that they lied. Period. Any lie concerns me. If it's a small lie, my concern is: If you're lying about this, you'll lie about anything, and, therefore, I can't trust you! If it's a big lie, my concern is: Not only did you do something to that magnitude, but instead of confessing or trying to correct it, you'd rather lie and keep it going or cover it up, and, therefore, I can't trust you! Do you see where I'm coming from?
Now, if you know that a lie is a lie no matter the severity or magnitude, why would you believe those lies about you? What do I mean? Well, let's do a self evaluation, shall we?
2. Do you think you're beautiful?
If you answered no, you just lied to yourself. The Word of God says that we are made in His image.
Gen 1:27 says, "So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female" HCBS
I doubt that God is nothing short of beautiful. Do you think that you are an awesome person? If you answered no, you just lied again! God said that we are fearfully and wonderfully made!
Psalms 139:14 says, "I will praise thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made..." - KJV.
Now, if you said no to the last two questions, I'm beginning to think that there may be some other things that you are probably lying to yourself about too. If the Word of God clearly tells you who you are made to be, why is it that we let the circumstances, failures, and mistakes in our lives cause us to think of ourselves as less than? YOU ARE A DAUGHTER OF THE KING! That makes you royalty!
1 Peter 2:9 says, "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood..." - HCBS.
3. Have you EVER seen any of the royal family looking a hot mess?
Neither have I. That's because they understand who they are and who they represent. You have to do the same thing! You are a Queen on this earth and you represent the God of the universe!
2 Corinthians 5:20 says, "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ," - HCBS.
I want you - no, I need you to get this! You are NOT worthless! You are NOT stupid! You are NOT a failure! Your mistakes do NOT define who you are, neither are YOU a mistake! You are NOT disposable! The world would NOT be better without you in it! These statements are the TRUTH about you! Stop believing the lies the enemy, the devil, keeps putting in your head to make you feel less than! He's trying to get you to give up on life so you don't fulfill your purpose; the very reason you were created! He wants to steal your dreams and happiness! Don't let him! Only you can give him that power! You have to fight back! How? I'm glad you asked.
Use your weapon: P-R-A-Y-E-R: Power, Resist, Authority, Yield, Endure, Repeat!
You have all the power over the enemy! Luke 10:19 says, "Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will ever harm you." This means that you have power over those negative thoughts that are placed in your head. God does not think that way about you so He wouldn't place those thoughts in your head. If He didn't place those thoughts there, who do you think did? Think about it...
You must resist the enemy and he will flee from you!
James 4:7 says, "Therefore, submit to God. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you."
This means that when you begin feeling worthless, depressed, and suicidal - yes, even suicide has to submit to Jesus you can submit yourself to God by praying over yourself and casting those thoughts down, that's how you resist them, and they have to flee!
You have the authority to do what Jesus did on this earth! Mark 3:15 says, "and to have authority to drive out demons." Yes, you can cast those demons out in the name of Jesus! And guess what! Because you have been given authority by Jesus Christ and you come in the name of Jesus Christ, they must obey! They might take their time leaving, but they have no choice but to get out!
You must yield and submit yourself and your will to the Holy Spirit at all times to endure the trials and tribulations of this life! Even Jesus said in John 5:30, "I can do nothing on My own. I judge only as I hear, and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me." Trust me, this is not an easy feat! It takes practice and dedication. You have to have a made-up mind that you are going to do this, because if you are unsure, you will go around and around in circles still trying to find out why you haven't gotten to where you need to be.
You have to endure until the end!
Matthew 24:13 says, "But the one who endures to the end will be delivered."
Yes, it is easier said than done, but not impossible. No matter how hard it gets and how much it hurts or how heavy it feels, you must never give up! He has given us an expected end, so if it's not going well right now, it must not be the end! Hold on! You're life truly does depend on it, and if you have children, their life depends on it too, and their children, and their children's children. Please, understand the effect that your decisions will have on the generations to come.
Finally, repeat. No matter how many times you have to do it again, do it again!
Even Jesus says in Matthew 7:7, "Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you."
There's nothing wrong with repeating something that will edify you. Be repetitive in your prayer life, your worship, and reading your word. And not repetitive in the sense of doing it the same exact way every time, but just being consistent. This helps to also build up the endurance, helps you to yield to the Holy Spirit quicker, helps you exercise your authority more, helps you resist the enemy easier, and helps you to understand the power that you have!
PRAYER. The more you use your weapon of , the more effective it will become. Just like any warrior that practices how to use their sword, the more they train, the deadlier and more dangerous they are to the enemy!
You got this Warrior Queen, now pick up you weapon and GO FORTH AND CONQUER!!
