Nothing But the Truth

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. –Hebrews 6:18 NIV

Nothing But the Truth

The greatest lies we believe are the ones pronounced over us by others that are fueled by the enemy of our souls. God cannot lie; it’s impossible. Satan, on the other hand, is the father of lies. John 8:44 (NIV) says, “…When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

There is no truth in Satan; he is incapable of telling the truth. All he can do is take a partial truth, twist it, add to it, and make it something it is not. He twisted the truth in the Garden of Eden and caused the fall of all humankind. 

If the devil is telling you that you’re a failure, worthless, a loser, don’t believe it. He is incapable of telling the truth. Therefore, any accusation, condemnation, or ridicule he pronounces over you by others cannot be true. Every word from his lips is a lie. 

God, on the other hand, has spoken truth over you. He has proclaimed that you are bought, washed, and redeemed by His blood. He has said that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. He has proclaimed you righteous through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. The truth, nothing but the truth…settle for nothing less.

Don’t listen to what people say about you; believe what the Father says about you.

Pray for wisdom to see the enemy’s lies for what they are—an attack against you to hurt the Father.
