You are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father will you do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.
Did you catch that? Jesus said the devil is the father of lies.
You know what he enjoys doing?
FEEDING you lies. Lies about God, lies about your life, and lies about YOU!
Lately, I’ve been having to rebuke the lies the enemy is whispering in my ear with the truth of God’s word—just like Jesus did in the wilderness.
Sarah, doesn’t look like God is going to keep His promise to you.
Devil, my God is Able but if not He is still good! (Daniel 3)
Sarah, people are going to think you are crazy.
Devil, I will not fear man! I will fear the LORD my God, I will walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD my God with all my heart and with all my soul, and to keep His commandments and statutes. (Deuteronomy 10)
If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples.
It’s important we allow Jesus to disciple us (train us) in His word.
Why? His word brings FREEDOM.
Jesus also said:
You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
If we don’t know the truth of God’s living word, we will believe any old lie the devil tells us.
BUT when we hide God’s word in our heart, we will be able to fight back with the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6)
Friends, what lie or lies have you been believing that don’t line up with the word of God?
Take them captive and bring them into obedience with Christ. (2 Corinthians 10)
Do you want freedom from that LIE…seek God for the truth. He will show you in His word—and that truth will set you free.
