The evil one will seek to turn you inward, to seek to dishearten, or look to yourself, your sin, your shame, to look at yourself outside of who you are “In Christ.”… as though Jesus Christ did not come and take care of all of your sins and forgive you totally, irrevocably and given you His Word so you can read about His transaction on your behalf!

“Therefore, having been justified by faith,we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God.”-{Rom 5:1-2}

 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. When He had  disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.  “-{Col 2;13-15}


The evil one seeks to separate you in your thinking from who you truly are, “In Christ.”…he is the accuser of the brethren… he cannot give you hope, for he is hopeless, he cannot point you to Jesus for he is full of hatred and devoid of love, mercy, grace. TO LISTEN to the thoughts that the evil one seeks to inject into your thinking and to act on those thoughts by Embracing and submitting to them will lead to anxiety, fear, despair, depression, all because you CHOOSE to believe the lie, such as, “God is not good. God does not care. God ultimately cannot love you. How could He…look at you,” and so the LIES continue to bombard and beat you down… “BUT GOD….”

The Holy Spirit will always turn you to Jesus. He is your answer. He is your Life. He is your Substitute. He is your Advocate. He is your Great High Priest. He is the lover of your soul. He is your provider. He is sufficient for your every need. He is the great “I Am.” He is Peace. He is Hope. He is grace. You have access to the throne – not of condemnation but of GRACE, eternal favor, the smile of god upon you because of the Lord Jesus, to receive help in time of need. You are never alone. He is with you. He loves you. He cares for you. He is the good shepherd, who laid down His life for you. He is the great shepherd who was raised, He is the Chief Shepherd who is coming again. He is Emmanuel- God with us. God for us.God has supplied His Son, God has gifted us His Spirit. He has given us everything pertaining to life and Godliness. He has given us precious and magnificent promises.{Read 2 Peter 1;3-4}.

Why do we believe the lies? Often because they “feel” so real to us, and we  often tend to live by our feelings as the ultimate authority rather than faith in the faithful One. This is your battle, “feelings” versus faith in God and His Word.

Remember the victory has been won in Christ. See yourself as He sees you. Speak the truth to yourself and He will TRANSFORM your thinking to influence your choices for living and to strengthen your faith. If you are fishing and catching fish you don’t change the bait, why not? It works! So the evil one uses lies, condemnation, accusation and unless you  meet the lies with truth you will succumb again and again. “BUT GOD…” has provided you HIS Word, His Spirit to enable you to live in truth and to rest in His Victory at the cross for you. Rejoice in Him! Jesus Christ. Think on Him. Talk to Him. Trust in Him. Praise Him- Rest in Him. Look away and keep looking away to Jesus-{Hebrews 12:2}

To believe the lie, is to stand before the cross of Jesus and say, “You Lie!”

Believe Him. Trust Him. His Cross is the Testimony He is for you and His Resurrection the proof. He alone is to be believed!

We chose who or what to believe. To choose to believe the lie is to submit to and claim that the “lie is  LORD!”

We choose the lie or the LORD?

Believe  The LORD!  Believe His Word! His Cross…
