(St. John 8:44 KJV) “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
One of the greatest weapons that Satan uses against us is the lie. If he can get us to believe the lie we have essentially given him the power to rule over us. And because we are generally pessimistic by nature it is sometimes easier to believe the lie. However, as Christians if we are going to live victorious lives we must stop believing the lies of the enemy and start believing the word of God.
Jesus said he (Satan) was a lie and the father of lies. Hence, if the devil can get us to believe that the word of God is not real; if he can get us to believe we will never amount to anything; if he can get us to believe that we are not the salt of the earth or the light of the world then we have given Satan power and authority in our lives. Child of God, stop operating in the lies of Satan and live in the truth of God’s word because real power and authority comes from God and you will never know power and authority until you begin to deal with the truth.
(St. John 8:31-32) “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” If we desire to come out of bondage then we must operate in truth; if we want to live a victorious life we must begin to operate in truth, and the truth must begin and end with the word of God. Child of God, if we take the lies and deception out of our lives we take the power which the enemy has over us away.
God Bless You
