So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.

--Nehemiah 4:6


Do you remember the old saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? I think we understand the point behind that saying, but it’s absolutely untrue, isn’t it? We all know how much words can hurt.


That is exactly what Satan wants to do to us—discourage and hurt us. And the way he does this is by telling us lies. With him, the truth doesn’t matter. He’s simply out to ruin your reputation and shake your confidence in Christ.


In Matthew 16:18, Jesus tells us that He will build His Church and that hell will not prevail against it. He also tells us that we can rebuild our lives and honor Him. But just when you start believing God, Satan will come and say, “You can’t rebuild your life—it’s too far gone.”


This is exactly what Nehemiah was going through as he and the people of God were working to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem from rubbish. Satan sent people to tell him, “You can’t possibly make this rubbish into a wall of defense.”


But Nehemiah proved them wrong! Don’t let Satan steal the victory by believing him and doubting God. Ask God today to help you see the devil’s lies for what they are.
