HE IS A LIAR! Don't listen to his lies...

Dear Blog Readers,

Here is an excerpt from Chapter Nine titled, "Is God Good?" from my book, "How to Love God with all Your Heart" Copyright 2015.

"In this chapter we will read about God’s goodness and unmask the real enemy. We’ll compare God’s character and plan for our lives with Satan’s agenda for us..." 

John 8:42-44 New Living Translation (NLT)

42 Jesus told them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, because I have come to you from God. I am not here on my own, but he sent me. 43 Why can’t you understand what I am saying? It’s because you can’t even hear me! 44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.

"Satan’s goal is to fill our minds with lies. He’ll try over and over to lie to us about God’s goodness and love for us.

What does he lie to you about? Does he tell you that you’re unworthy? Does he make you feel insecure, inferior or unloved? He’s done that to me many times.

In the process of writing this book, I started to think I should just give up because I’m not a good writer. I began to believe the enemy’s lies, and then I recognized his negative influence on me. That’s not true! This book will bless many people and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. The Holy Spirit helped me fight against the father of lies.

Ask God to help you recognize the thoughts in your head. Are they truth based on God’s Word? Or are they thoughts planted by the enemy who wants to deceive you? God will protect and guard your mind in Christ Jesus when you ask Him. You have authority in Christ Jesus and can stop the lies by praying in Jesus’ name. Claim Scripture verses to attack the enemy with the Truth. The Word of God is a powerful weapon against the enemy.

We shouldn’t associate with the father of lies at all. You read in John 8:42-44 about the seriousness of lying. There isn’t such a thing as “white lies” or “harmless lies.” The day I learned in Bible study that lying is not a small sin, I asked God to help me be truthful." (How to Love God with All Your Heart - Copyright 2015)

Instead, draw closer to the love of Jesus who is True and Faithful. The truth is that God loves you! If you read His Word, the Bible, you will know this truth. Don't let the enemy lie to you about God's great unconditional love for you. Jesus gave up His life because He thought YOU were worth dying for!
