Dear Ones, 
Hope you are having a good day. It is very windy and cold out and it  almost blew my cart  away when I went to Aldi’s this morning. I also got downstairs for Donut Day. This afternoon we have our Bible study and the attendance and sharing has been so good. 
Devotions from Judy’s heart
One of my heart’s desires is that I would live and walk in truth. David prays in Psalm 86:10-12 (God’s Word), “Indeed, you are great, a worker of miracles. You alone are God. Teach me your way, O Lord, so that I may live in your truth. Focus my heart on fearing you. I will give thanks to you with all my heart, O Lord my God. I will honor you forever.”
Every day we have a choice of choosing between God’s truth and the opposing perspective of the world, our flesh and the devil. In our Bible Study at church, we are studying “The Truth Project”. Truth is what is real as perceived by God. We hear such things today as “my truth” or “your truth”, which often is in direct opposition to the Bible. But Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and there is no other way. When Jesus stood before Pilate and was asked about His kingship, Jesus answered, “For this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” (John 18:37-38)
It doesn’t matter what our opinion is or what we think is truth, if it doesn’t line up with the Word and what Jesus said, it is a lie. There is a huge battle today between God’s truth and the lies of the world. Our actions will display what we believe to be truth. When we sin, we are believing the lie and we live in illusion. 
Maybe we don’t think we lie, but how about the lies we tell ourselves. We might say to ourself that we are worthless and no one likes us or we can’t do anything right. Maybe we don’t believe God will forgive us for something we have done. The enemy will capitalize on those false thoughts and soon we are believing the lies and living in despair. But as it says in Romans 12:2, instead of copying the behavior of this world, we are to let God transform us into a new person by changing the way we think.
Let us be done with soaking up the lies that the enemy wants us to believe, and instead believe the truth of what Jesus says. The truth will set us free!
Challenge for today: When negative thoughts come to mind, dispel the lie and seek truth.  
Blessings on your day and prayers and love, Judy
