“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was
a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the 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.” John 8:44.
Some people find it difficult to believe God’s promises because they’ve seen so
many things in the natural world that seem to contradict them. They’ve seen faithful tithers go broke. They’ve seen sick Christians fail to receive their healing.
In reality, it would be more accurate to say that they think they’ve seen those things.
Because, there’s a deceiver at work in the world. A deceiver who’s busily doing the same thing he’s been doing ever since the Garden of Eden: tricking mankind into
believing God’s Word isn’t true.
And, after working on it for thousands of years, he’s a master at it. Think about that the next time he tries to make things look as though God’s Word is not going to work for you, when he makes it look like all hope is lost. Tell the devil, “You are a liar! I believe the Word and I refuse to doubt it.”
You need to learn to trust God’s Word and rely on it to such an extent that when
Satan shows you something in the natural world that appears to contradict it, you
just say, “Well, I saw that, but I’m not going to be deceived. I’m just going to stick with the Word.”
If you do that, the father of lies will never be able to deceive you.
🖋️ Hold on to the truth of God’s Word.
John 17:17; Psalm 119:160.
- I rebuke the deception of the devil in my health in the name of Jesus;
- I rebuke the deception of the devil in my finances in the name of Jesus;
- I rebuke the deception of the devil in my marriage in the name of Jesus;
