We are chatting about lies, wrong beliefs, and words spoken over your children that need to be (1) acknowledged as lies, (2) need to be broken off, and (3) replaced with truth so that your children can have a new, renewed right way of thinking.
If you don’t address the lies that your children are believing and teach them how to acknowledge it as a lie and the value in asking, “What is the truth about this that I should be believing instead?” your children will continue to say, “This is too hard. I can’t do this. I’m not smart enough. I give up. Why keep trying? I’m not good enough. I’m fat. I’m ugly. I don’t like who I am.”
In this episode, I’ll share three lies your children could be believing, and give you tangible tips for what you can do and scripts of what you can say to your child.
Grab a pen and paper and write down what I suggest so that you have a plan of what to do and what to say.
Then take time to pray over it and ask Holy Spirit for the right timing, the right body language and tone of voice, and a teachable moment so that this will resonate with your child.
Then watch lies fall off and truth win in your child’s heart. We speak this breakthrough out in full belief that Holy Spirit will work in the heart of your child and that truth will stay rooted in their thoughts and in the words they speak going forward.
Lie 1: I am afraid (especially when it comes to doing a presentation at school). (minute 6:02)
Lie 2: I’ll just lie so that I don’t get into trouble. (minute 9:50)
Lie 3: I’m not important. (minute 10:44)
Do you see how we can use our words to speak belief and good over our children when they are speaking and believing lies? We can help them to consider, “What is the truth that I should think and speak instead?”
If you find it that your child is not receptive or open to the possibility that they are believing lies, I encourage you to watch the video I made called Tell Me No More Lies.
This video will help your child learn how to spot lies they are telling themselves. I use two lies as examples: “It’s too hard. I can’t do this.” and “I don’t belong.” You can watch the video with them.
I share seven questions your child can ask themselves to break off lies. They’ll learn how to keep truth rooted in their heart and mind so that they act in full confidence and become who they are meant to be.
I bless you, Mama. You give so much to your children. One of the best gifts you can give them is to know how to (1) acknowledge a lie they are believing, (2) how to break it off meaning stop agreeing with it and (3) how to replace it with truth so that they have a new, renewed victorious way of thinking.
