We’re at the end of our Summer Online Bible Study of Lies Women Believe. It’s funny how even though this was a long study – 10 weeks – it went by quickly all the same. If you missed any of the posts, be sure to read them here.
Let’s remember that even though we are leaving this study, we are not leaving the mandatory diligence it takes to stay victorious over the lies of the enemy. He is continuously at work to keep in bondage to old lies and introduce new ones. Each and every day we must talk to God through pray and read and study our Bible. Did you notice I said “each and every day”? A relationship with Jesus is just that – a relationship. If we do not talk to Him and learn about Him through His living and active Word, then how can we expect to have a relationship with Him?
Chapters 10 and 11 of Lies Women Believe sum up everything we’ve been learning in the other chapters. Let’s review:
This is the progression of bondage (Lies Women Believe, p. 244):
1. We listen to Satan’s lies.
2. We dwell on those lies.
3. We believe those lies.
4. We act on those lies.
This is the pathway from bondage to freedom (Lies Women Believe, p. 246):
1. Identify the area(s) of bondage or sinful behavior.
2. Identify the lie(s) at the root of that bondage or behavior.
3. Replace the lie(s) with the Truth.
“If we want to know Him, if we want to know the Truth, we must devote ourselves to the reading, study, and meditation of His Word. But it is not enough to know the Truth. We must also surrender to the Truth.” (Lies Women Believe, p. 250)

I don’t know about you, but this is a daily struggle for me. It comes down to taking every thought captive, and when I say every, some days it is literally every! But we must not let the enemy tell us that we cannot be free. If we can’t be free, the Cross of Jesus was in vain.
