The 1st lie the enemy tells is probably the one he uses the most. He tries to convince us that everything is against us and there is no way to ever win. This lie is not just used against the lost, but it’s used against the church as well. The enemy of the church wants to paralyze the body of Christ into not trying to reach any other souls. If he can make us believe that what he is doing cannot be changed or overcome by anything else, then we will give in and give up. Don’t believe this lie, but instead reach out to the lost.
The 2nd lie plays upon people’s feeling and judgment of them self. I think at our core we all think our need is too great. We know the “us” that no one else can ever know. If you can imagine how much of a hindrance this could be for a child of God, then try to fathom how debilitating this is for someone who is trying to come out of sin. To someone who is trying to break free from the pull of self, sin, and the world the lie of your need being too great would be more easily digested. We must believe for ourselves and help those around us see that Jesus can take care of any need that we will ever have.
The 3rd lie adds to the hopelessness that already exists in our world. For someone who feels like they are pushed into the corner, to believe that they are never going to receive help would be a grievous way to live. Let me encourage someone today. Help has already come and he will not give up trying to reach you. If you will just turn to the Lord and surrender to His will he has already paid for all the help you need. This is the truth: Jesus is the answer to the questions and the needs that exist in your life.
Don’t listen to the devil’s lies,
