Lies Women Believe
Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free
As a pastor I often say that Satan does the most effective work using the truth to create deception to encourage us to live out a lie. I find that many people are often deceived into believing lies about themselves that keep them from being all that God desires for them to be.
In this book DeMoss starts by describing the progression from deception to bondage. Starting by listening to a lie leads to dwelling on the lie leading to believing it and then acting on it. The challenge is to move from the deception to the truth, from bondage to freedom.
She will take you through a look at lies women believe about God, themselves, sin, priorities, marriage, children, emotions and circumstances. Each sections list a number of topics with thought provoking questions and scripture to challenge you to look at these topics through the eyes of God.
The strength of this book comes from the challenge to dig into the scriptures and examine what God’s Word has to say on these topics. It is formatted in a way that can be used by individuals or for a small group study. While it is geared toward women I think it is beneficial for those men that are striving to encourage the women in their lives to be all that God wants for them.
I would like to encourage you to not just read the text but to start with suggested scriptures and allow them to lead you on a journey through God’s Word.
