Message for June 30 - Can You Handle the Truth?

What a wonderful time we had in church today!  Priscilla’s prayer sessions are always special.  I hope you take the time to let her know how much you appreciate the care she shows to all of us.  I hope we will always remember the pastor’s admonition to stay true to the One who created us.

It was during that special prayer time that it seems God changed my message.  Over and over again I felt led to pray for the power of the enemies lies to be broken in the lives of those I was praying with.  Maybe that was just because of what I had been reading before church, but I think it was more than that.  I believe that the Lord wants some healing to go on in our church.  I am not talking about physical healing, though He certainly may do that as well.  What we need more is healing on the inside.

I think that we all carry around lies that we believe because of things that have happened or been told us in the past.  It doesn’t necessarily take a traumatic event, but it often happens that way.  However it happens, the forces of the evil one inject a lie into our thoughts.  We believe that lie, and it begins to bind us.

We’ve all heard the famous movie phrase, “You can’t handle the truth!”  Oh how Satan wants you to believe just that!  And he will make sure that the truth you think you can’t handle is one big Hellish lie!  We’re going to examine some of the lies you may have been told and counter them with the truth of God’s Word.  Jesus said, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:31-32)  I hope you’ll join us next week and find your freedom in His truth.
