I grabbed my phone at 3:47 am on June 21, 2022 after I woke up to use the restroom. On my way to the restroom, I hear in my mind, “Why LIE”? It’s 3:45 am and I’m like; why lie?
And then I hear, “Letting Insecurities Erupt”.
One of the main reasons people feel the need to lie is to hide an insecurity one has about a particular issue or area. It’s easier to lie about it than to face the reality of it to either yourself or another person, persons, or a group of people.
Think about something you have lied to someone about before or in many cases right now. Why did you do it? What was the insecurity behind it? People who are very arrogant and proud will argue that they are not insecure, but if you peel back those layers, something is brewing underneath.
Insecurity can be defined as a state or feeling of anxiety, fear, or self-doubt. It can also be defined as a lack of dependability or certainty, or a lack of safety or protection.
If you were to dig real deep, you will find one of these areas needing some massaging and work. What was the anxiety behind that thing? What was the uneasiness or nervousness you felt about it? Where did you doubt yourself in that situation and placed that on another person or situation without any truth or evidence to support it? What was causing you mental distress or concern about the issue? What doubt or fears do you or did you have about the situation that may or may not have directly involved or been caused by the person or persons you lied to? What is it? Who or what are you unsure about? Who or what has let you down in times past? What causes you to feel unsafe or unprotected in that situation?What are you afraid of? What is the unpleasant emotion you are having or have had about that thing? What is your concern? What is your reason for alarm? What danger do you feel or felt about this thing? What is the root issue of the lie?
When a person can get to the root cause and deal with that, insecurities will dissipate and lying will cease?
Think about why the enemy or evil one lies to people every single day? Why are lies planted in the thought life of people? Most times if people knew their true power and gifts, they would be slapping the devil around every second. When people try to demean and tear people down, it’s because they are fearful of the power of choice to decide and move freely when facts and truth are known.
The next time you may be tempted to lie or just decide to out right lie, use these questions as a guide and checklist to evaluate the issue deeper.
And with this evaluation, I pray you find the answers and resolve you need to live a life of peace and truth all of your days.
One of the worse things you can do to self is lie in order to pursue, obtain, or maintain friendships or relationships, because you will need to lie to keep and maintain them. Start out on a clean slate and when things become tempting, ask yourself, is it worth your integrity? Is it worth the hurt, pain, disappointment, or anger that it causes others or yourself or is it worth what it will cause to others and self when the truth is discovered? It is really worth it?
And if you say yes to any of these, well you may want to go back through the checklist of questions and start all over because an insecurity is buried somewhere.
People lie because there is an insecurity or insecurities brewing somewhere and the longer it goes unchecked, the longer it causes inner turmoil and distress.
Be free today.
Set others free today with the truth and allow them to decide based on truth and not what you want it to be.
