Facing the Truth Brings a Happier Life
Examine and test and evaluate your own selves to see whether you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves [not Christ]... —2 Corinthians 13:5
Nobody can be set free from a problem until they’re willing to admit they have one. An alcoholic, drug addict or anyone who’s lost control of their life is doomed to suffer until they’re able to say, “I have a problem and I need help with it.”
Even though our problems may have been brought upon us because of something done against our will, we don’t have to allow the problem to persist, grow and take control over our entire lives. Our past experiences may have made us the way we are, but we don’t have to stay that way. We can take the initiative by taking positive steps to change things—and we can do it with a lot of help from the Holy Spirit.
Whatever your problem may be, you must face the truth and assume some personal responsibility. The Bible says we must evaluate ourselves. That might seem daunting, but Jesus Christ is in you and can help you through any past problems and issues.
Face the truth—it can be the beginning of a happier life!
Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, I don’t want to live in denial and fear of my problems. I choose to evaluate myself and get to the bottom of these issues because I know You can help me work through them to have a happier life.
