The devil is a liar! He is good at it too. He has a way of taking the truth and distorting it. One can describe him as deceitful, full of perversion, pride, and hatefulness.
God has so many good attributes; I don’t think I could name them all. Just the “I AM’s” are wonderful. I love what He told Moses when he asked, who do I say sent me? Tell them, I AM sent you — I AM, the self-existent One, who is present, past, and future. Omnipotent — all-powerful (Psalms 62:11). Omniscient –all-knowing (John 1:3). Omnipresent — everywhere at the same time (Hebrews 13:5). He can be your savior, refuge, strength, hope, peace, and friend.
So why is it, when God gives us a promise, we are excited at first? God is going to do something that seems impossible. Then life goes on, and we start to believe a lie. It’s easier to believe a lie. We are carnal and tend to act by what we see and hear or by how we feel. That’s why we are instructed to walk by faith and not by sight.
Truth is, it is impossible for God to lie. How do we overcome? By the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We need to apply what we know is true in our daily life.
Every day, throughout the day, speak the scripture God gave you. Yes, say it out loud. Jesus used the Word to defeat Satan, so can we. My goodness, write it down! I have so many scriptures written down. I put them on my bathroom mirror. Every time I go in there, I read them out loud. I have scriptures that I have recorded on my phone, and I play them back repeatedly. Sing, not a tear-jerker, but a song of faith. Get a vision of what God is doing. Give yourself a mental picture and rehearse it. Faith is a substance. So, do something! Give, teach, play, pray. By all means, quit praying your problem. Pray the solution and start thanking God for the answer. God is faithful! When He gives a promise, it always comes with conditions. We must obey and continue to do our part.
“…in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation...” (Hebrews 6:18)
It’s work to believe the truth, are you ready?
