He says things that are wrong about you all the time! But somehow he is very successful at telling those lies. He uses tactics which emphasize previous mistakes, bad choices, failures, doubts, etc.
So what exactly are those 3 lies?
1. You are worth nothing! Nothing! That is what the devil says about you when you fail. But the Bible is teaching us something totally different:
“For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.”
2. You will always fail because you are weak! This is probably one of the strongest of all lies he can use against you… Our Lord and Savior says something completely different about that:
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”
“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-11
3. You are not loved! No one loves you!! The devil’s specialty is playing with our emotions… He loves promoting rejection! The Word of God says it plainly:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
One of the ways to protect ourselves from these lies is acknowledging how the enemy works. We have a powerful advantage in that we are children of God with His never ending word and message written in the Bible at our fingertips. It is written for you to become stronger, happier, healthier! Whatever lies the enemy tries to attack you with, look to God’s Word for the truth![vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
