The Lying Voice vs. Christ

A lying voice often tries to confuse me, but Christ, the Truth, reassures me..

Lying voice:  You're worthless.
Christ:  You're worth so much I laid down my life to get you back to me.

Lying voice:  You'll never change.
Christ:  I have already changed you;  you are righteous in My sight.

Lying voice:  Something terrible is going to happen to you, so be afraid.
Christ:  I am WITH YOU, and I am ALL-mighty and can handle anything!

Lying voice:  You are all alone.
Christ:  I will NEVER leave you or forsake you.

Lying voice:  How could you think such awful thoughts?
Christ:  Awful thoughts are foreign and not your own.

Lying voice:  You're a big failure; God is disappointed with you.
Christ:  God says you're His beloved child in whom He is WELL-pleased.

Lying voice:  You've got sin in your life so He won't hear your prayer.
Christ:  God hears every prayer of the righteous, and you're righteous!

Lying voice:  You must try harder if you ever hope God will accept you.
Christ:  You are fully accepted by God RIGHT NOW because of My work.

Lying voice:  Since you just blew it, how can you say you're righteous?
Christ:  You are righteous by My performance, not your own!

Lying voice:  You must keep yourself close to God.
Christ:  I'm in you and you're in me, and that's forever!

Lying voice:  Noone really cares about you or wants you around.
Christ:  You are precious to me!  I sing over you with delight!

Lying voice:  You will never get free of your problems.
Christ:  I am here, and where I am is freedom!

Lying voice:  You can't handle this trouble.  You're going to sink.
Christ:  I will handle this for you.  We're going to walk on the waves!
