Ever since the fall of Adam and Eve, the devil has been trying his hardest to trick mankind into believing his lies. Every chance he gets, he whispers his falsities into our ears. And, it’s no wonder he keeps it up, we fall for his tales more often than not.
We continue to live in fear. We envy the lives of those we admire. We believe the lie that we are not worthy. We worry and stress ourselves out feeding into the story that things will not work out for us. We keep our dreams locked away thinking there is no way we will ever attain them.
All because of the lies of the devil. Lies we choose to believe over the Word of God.
Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31, 32 NLT)
As believers of Christ, we have been blessed to know the truth about ourselves. We have learned that we stand righteous before God (Romans 5: 15, 16), that we are the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13), that we can do anything with Christ’s strength (Philippians 4:13), and that we are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37). This doesn’t even begin to tap into the benefits that we have in Jesus!
So why do we keep giving in to the lies of the enemy?
Jesus said, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18, 19)
Don’t stay in a poor state of mind. Don’t allow yourself to remain brokenhearted. You have no reason to be blind or in bondage. You have received the gift of freedom from Jesus Christ. Embrace all that He has for you! Allow the truth of the gospel of Jesus to free you from the lies of the devil.
I thank You that I have been made free through your Son, Jesus Christ. Help me to remember the truth in the face of the lies of the enemy. Let me always choose to believe the truth of Your word in the face of anything that opposes what You have spoken. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
Ladies today I EMPOWER you to live in the freedom of the truth of Jesus Christ. I EMPOWER you to resist giving in to the lies of the devil. You are everything that God said you are! You can do everything that He said you can do!
How will you walk in the freedom of truth and overcome the enemy’s lies?
