“…He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths” John 8:44, Amplified Version.
Don’t let the devil tell you what you can’t do, what you can’t overcome, and what you can’t accomplish for God. Don’t let the devil tell you what God will and won’t do. The devil is a liar and there is no truth found in him.
The devil will always focus on the facts, a half-truths, because he is incapable of telling you the whole truth. He wants us each day, in any given situation, to not hope in God. Yes, the fact is you may have messed up. Yet, the whole truth is that God has made a way and is going to bless you in spite of your mess up. Yes, you may have encountered a setback, yet the whole truth is God is at work and will provide you with the greatest comeback of your life. Yes, you may have record, but you are going to see God bless you in spite of your record. You may even not love the Lord like you should, but God is able to work in you the will and to do His good pleasure, even at this very moment (Philippians 2:13).
The whole truth is because of Jesus Christ, there is always hope. There’s always a blessing. It’s never over.
So the next time the devil to tells you what your end will be, ask him is that whole truth—I guarantee he won’t answer you.
Prayer: Father, thank You for reminding me of Who I belong to and Who’s hands my life is in. The devil is a liar! I speak against every thought telling me what I can’t do. My life’s destination is determined by You God and I will trust You. I already have the victory. I will not live according to facts, but according to the whole and final truth of Your Word. I receive what You say about me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
