Protection is deemed necessary for the soldier, and the firefighter and even the goalie for the hockey team, but when it comes to the average Christian, we assume position at the front lines unarmed, with vital pieces of our protection missing!
"The devil...does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies." - John 8:44
The only power that satan possesses is in the lie. He has no power over us except what we allow when we fall for his lies. When we expose him and his deceit, we break his power.
It grieves me so when I see once godly warriors who use to serve God not give Him the honor due Him.
How does that happen?
It happens when a Truth was traded for a lie. Just this past week I've heard of two beautiful ladies who listened to the voice of lies and attempted to take their life. One life was ended, the other hangs on.
The lies of the enemy is very real and we must be sure to have all the armor intact so to not listen to the wrong voice. Satan has no power over you, or your mind or your soul. Dealing with the enemy is not an encounter with his power, it's an encounter with God's truth!
"You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free". -John 8:32
Be free. Know the difference between the truth and a lie.
