WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD


Satan's lies and God's Truth:

We know that Jesus came to give us life and to give it to us abundantly but so many women are living a life of defeat. Whether it be stressed out, lonely, fearful or just plain unloved! I think a lot of times the root of our problem is believing the lies of Satan. 


Satan says: You need to fill your calendar and your every waking moment with stuff.....and he will go as far as to help you fill it even with good stuff. So much so that you become stressed to the hilt and can't function! Or you feel that your role as a wife, mom, friend, employee or etc. has just about got the best of you (Stress)


Satan says:  Everyone is too busy for you. Your husband works every extra hour he can get just to make ends meet. Your children are so busy with their friends that you are no longer important and your so called church friends really don't want you in their click. (Lonely)


Satan says: You are not good enough. You are not thin enough. You are not pretty enough. You can't talk to people. You say the wrong things. Your words are not elegant enough. (Fearful)


Satan says: No one likes you. You have no friends. You are nothing compared to others. People talk about you behind your back. Your own family doesn't love you. No one would help you even if you needed it. (Unloved)


That is a lie....straight from Satan. The Bible says in John 8:44 that Satan is a murderer and the Father of all lies. 


The devil is described, more than anything else, as a liar. He has no power to defeat God, but he is skilled at lying, and convincing people to listen to his lies.

Satan is the enemy of God. He wants to destroy everything God has created including us!

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

God says:  Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28


God says: I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:24


God says: For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.     2 Timothy 1:7


 God says: The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. Jeremiah 33:3

May we stand together and ask our Lord to bind Satan from our minds and to render him harmless and ineffective against us. Satan lovesto lie to us! God tells us the truth. 

And...Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free . John 8:32

  3. How very true that Satan can tempt us to overfill our days - even with good things - to deplete us and rob our time at the feet of our Savior. And that always start a downward spiral of stress, weariness, and short-temperedness that affects our relationship with those we love. Jesus came to set the captives free. When we trust His provision and guidance, the fruit we bear for Him makes an eternal impact. Blessings!

  5. I have heard many of those terrible words from Satan. I have even spoke it out loud, "Satan, you are a liar! I bind you in the Name of Jesus!!" It's easy to fall into the trap, but we have to remember that we are ABOVE it!! I love you, Cindy and I thank you so much for your teachings.
    Make a joyful noise!!

  9. Fortunately, for the most part, I don't allow those negative thoughts enter my mind very often. Where I still have my problem is not letting go and just completely trusting in the Lord. Matthew 11:28 is something I need to print off and keep close to me! Thank you for another great post.
