Lies Young Women Believe

I am going to start sharing some wonderful quotes from a book entitled ‘Lies Young Women Believe’ by Nancy Leigh DeMoss.  This is the book that I am going through with a friend of mine for all of our church’s youth group gals.  I have gone through the book ‘Lies WOMEN Believe’ many moons ago, with a group of ladies from my church, but this one is specifically targeted for ‘younger’ women.  However, there is SO much meaning and depth and wonderful perception even for us ‘older’ women to glean from this book . .  I often find myself still believing these things which the world wants us to believe, even though I know them to be false and deceiving, I sway back and forth between truth and disbelief.

Today’s quote is from the 4th chapter, ‘Lies About God’

“Many believed that they needed their friends more than God.  Most acknowledged that if they have a problem or need advice about something, they are more likely to text message or call a friend than to talk to God. – God IS enough, He will meet your needs and wants to be your closest confidant.  His Word promises “My God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus” {Phil 4:19}  He is the One who can heal your heart when it is broken.  He is the One who can encourage, guide and protect you.  He is the One who can make you feel safe when others fail you.  He is the One who can make your feel valued no matter what you can or cannot do. – As we spend time reading and thinking about what He’s saying to us in His Word, or as we pray or meet with others to worship Him or study the Bible together, or relationship with Him grows deeper.  The more you get to know God, the more you see that He is ALL you need”
