Someone Is Lying to You …
He [Satan] 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 wants you to live your life from an empty cup. He wants you to think God’s cup of grace has dried up for you. Yet God has the power to provide you with more than enough of what you need (2 Corinthians 9:8).
The devil wants you to think negatively about God. He knows if you do, he can have his way with you in other areas. Most especially, he wants you to feel that God is a cosmic killjoy, always thinking of ways to rob you of joy and peace.
But who is the real robber? Satan used this same slander with Eve in the Garden. His methods haven’t changed. Jesus Himself put His finger on the motives and methods of Satan when He said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Jesus’ very next words were, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep” (v. 11). Take courage. Be strong. Jesus has won the victory for you! Send those lies back to the pit where they came from and claim the promises of God.
A liar is vying for your heart today. There is also a Life-giver. He says, “Come unto Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart, and you shall find rest unto your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29). Go to the Life-giver. Rest in Him.
