What Have I Been Believing?
A great deal of freedom can be obtained by replacing the lies about who we are in this world with the truth of who we are in Christ.
What is the Truth About Me?
Our old ‘programing’ – How I FEEL/THINK about myself.
I renounce the LIE that:
What is True About Me. What GOD’S WORD Says About Me. This is TRUTH!
