IDENTIFY THE SOURCE OF LIES


Jesus told the Pharisees, “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)


The devil is the enemy of our souls. Any words which are in opposition to what God has said is a lie from him. Fear, insecurity, anxiety, depression, and hopelessness are fruits of his lies. His attacks on God’s people have escalated as the end of time rapidly approaches. The devil knows his time is short. He knows he can’t win, so he is not pulling any punches or playing by the rules. The enemy is doing the only thing he can, and that is to lie . . . about everything. 


QUESTION: What has the devil said to you that has challenged you or hindered your progress in life?


PRAYER:  Heavenly Father, help me to identify and reject the lies the devil has spoken over my life from birth to this present time. Teach me to pull up the lies that have taken root in my life and to cast down those which the devil will speak against me in the future.
