Spread the love

1 John 4:1(KJV)
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

The human body constantly makes changes for its own best advantage. For example, when we walk into a room, our pupils dilate or constrict to better accommodate the lighting. When our wisdom teeth come in, often the other teeth will shift in order to make room. Depending on the temperature or environment, our bodies undergo a physiological response. These are natural processes, and they are necessary in order to sustain life and ensure that we survive our surroundings.

While we are constantly changing to fit our environment, we have to guard against a process called falsification. Falsification is when you try to fit into a place where you don’t belong, forcing your mind and body to adapt to things that are not authentic to you and that contribute to your downfall rather than your survival.

Today, try to identify the ways in which you have asked your mind, body, and soul to live under false pretenses. Take inventory as to how doing so has harmed you instead of sustaining you. This way of living is responsible for some types of depression, anxiety, exhaustion, memory impairment, digestive disorders, and a host of self-worth issues.

Falsification often gives short-term satisfaction by delaying the pain that comes with trauma and other injuries, such as loss of a loved one, a betrayal, or even abuse. We try to protect ourselves from feeling the great weight of the pain these injuries cause. We may feel that falsification is easier than dealing with the truth. True, the truth may be more difficult to live with, but your adaptation to it is what creates the best pathway for long term endurance and survival. Facing the truth is not always comfortable, but it is the best way to sustain your life
