There is a problem that is common to mankind and that is the lies we believe. And I am ready to wage war on the lies. Hoping you are ready to do the same. So strap on your weaponry and join me as we make space to believe God’s truth and lay siege on the devil’s lies.
…be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world….
It’s time we build some spiritual muscles and remember to put on the armor of God… so that when the lies come we can stand.
Stand firm then with the belt of truth buckled around your waist (Ephesians 6:14)
Beloved friends, every day we listen to lies: ” I am not performing well in my job” (maybe you could do better but if you are working hard and doing the best you can then that is a lie)… ” I am not smart enough, good enough, wealthy enough, pretty enough”. “I am not likable and that is why I have so few friends. ” The list goes on and on. And no matter your age, the enemy sneaks up on you and whispers in your ear his lies. Why? Because if you believe God’s truth then you are effective for the kingdom. And as a kingdom citizen with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, the enemy does not stand a chance.
Now I have something I want you to do. Think about the last few days or week. Review the days with the Lord. Have you fallen prey to lies about yourself? Perhaps you have spoken them to yourself. Now ask the Holy Spirit to speak truth. Break the agreement with the lies and seek God’s Word for truth. His Word is filled with promises for you. Now finish putting on your armor and stand.
…with the breastplate of righteousness in place, feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.. take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Sprit which is the word of God.
REMEMBER HIS PROMISES LIKE THE RAINBOW OF HOPE OVER YOUR LIFE AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE LIES.
