The Three Lies that We Believe to be Happy

Published on March 14, 2013 By Susanne

There are three lies our heart believes that challenge hearing
God and our relationships with people:

LIE #1:  I need to change people’s behaviour to be happy.

Silently ask the Lord this question:  “Lord Jesus, do I believe in my heart that I need to change others’ behaviour?”  Answer _______________?

1.  The truth is that I can’t change anyone’s behaviour. They are going to make their own choices, Deuteronomy 30:15-19.

Luke 6:29 – “If someone strikes you on onecheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.”

2.  God does not want me to manipulate people into doing the ‘right’ thing.

3.  Even God can’t change people who don’t want to be changed.
