John 8:44 "The Devil Is A Liar And The Father Of Lies--there Is No Truth In Him"
Why is the devil a liar? It is simple. God is truth and the devil is the opposite. Lies are a tool the devil uses to separate us from God, to draw a wedge between us and our Father, to take away our hope and trust and ultimately destroy our faith.
Imagine that someone gave you some information about a dear friend to you, or a family member that you know and love. It would be very hard to get you to believe something that you know is contrary to the nature of that person. It is the same way with us as believers in God. The devil will be less likely to distract you with his lies, if you truly know the nature of God. The key to standing up against the lies of the devil is getting to KNOW God, up close and personal by spending time with Him every day in Bible study and prayer, becoming one with God – allowing Him to make every decision in your life. Only then will we be in perfect communion with Him. Only then will we learn to trust Him with our life and the lives of our loved ones. Our job is to keep focused on what is important in life – becoming one with God - and not becoming distracted by the “cares of this world” and “lies of the devil.”
I love you, but GOD loves you more!
