Satan's a liar
March 10, 2010
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God actually say…?"
-- Genesis 3:1
One of Satan's favorite strategies is to try to make you and me doubt God's word. And this is exactly the tack he took with Eve in the Garden of Eden. Remember the story?
Satan told Eve, "God knows if you take of this fruit and you eat, you will be as God. God's holding out on you, Eve. He says He loves you, but he's really jealous. Take and eat, enjoy, fulfill yourself and you'll be happy!"
Can you see how Satan distorted and twisted what God told Eve and caused her to doubt the love of God. And that's what he does with us today. He comes to us with half truths and innuendoes and tries to plant questions in our mind concerning God.
He especially likes to do this when we're facing trials and struggles. He comes when you're weak and says, "Does God really care about you?" That's because if he can get you to doubt God's word and love, then it's a slippery slope into the sin of unbelief. This is exactly how sin entered the human race through Adam and Eve.
Don't be deceived by the enemy. "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7).
DON'T BE DECEIVED BY THE ENEMY!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
