    Battling the Enemies’ Lies vs. the Truth

     

    When you go through trials, testing, tribulation and hard seasons, it can be difficult to hold onto your faith. In life, we need to hold onto the anchor of truth, which is the hope for our souls. We are in a war between the truth and the lies. Whose word are you believing: the enemy’s lies or God’s Word?

     

    We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. (Hebrews 6:19)

     

     

    God wants us to cling to His Word and listen to His voice over the enemy’s voice. The Lord wants us to trust in Him, and the only way we can hear Him is by being in His Word. The Bible is known as a light unto our path (Proverbs 3:5). God’s spirit and Word tells us which way to go.

     

    My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27)

    In the world, we are told to go after false security, such as getting a home. We’re told to be successful, and that we will only be secure if we are married. The truth is if we have these things but no relationship with God through His Son Jesus (John 3), then what we have is temporal. Don’t let the world’s temporary conditions and assets sway you and deceive you into false thinking. Know who you are in Christ—don’t be misled. Real security is in being a daughter of the King, which no one can take away from you (Romans 8:39).

     

    Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:1-4)

     

    The enemy of our soul wants us to question God, His promises, His goodness and His faithfulness. I once heard it said that sin is birthed out of disbelieving God’s goodness. Whoa, so powerful to think our beliefs shape how we act, even if we “know better.” We know the lies of the enemy, but these lies must be cast down and cast out of our minds. We know that our battle and struggle is not against humans (or flesh and blood, like it says in Ephesians 6), but with principalities. And we also tear down strongholds by the Word. Jesus rebuked Satan by the Word, and by declaring, “it is written….”

     

    Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ… (2 Corinthians 10:5)

     

     

    To learn more about combating lies with the truth, I recommend a very good book called Lies Women Believe, and there is another one for teens called Lies Young Women Believe, both by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Go to liesyoungwomenbelieve.com.
