More than likely, all of us have been on both ends of a lie.
You have either told one (or many more!) or you have been lied to from another individual. Perhaps you weren't lied to directly, but you witnessed someone being untruthful, trying to escape accountability or pass the blame onto someone else.
Oh, there are many things that hurt in this world. Unfortunately, we all have learned that throughout our lives. Lies do so much more damage than just inflict pain and anger. Lies destroy relationships. Lies cause distrust. Lies deplete the character of the individual lying and cause others to view them very differently.
Funny thing..... the Bible reveals to us that there is in fact, a father of lies!!
Take a guess who that might be?
Okay the suspense is killing you.... Yes, Satan.
"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 out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies." John 8:44
The ability to lie, lies themselves and the devastating consequences from lies are NEVER from God. They are from the enemy!
It does not much matter if it is a small little white lie, as we often refer to them, or a monstrous, colossal lie. A lie is a lie and both can have devastating consequences.
BUT TAKE HEART.... here is the AWESOME news!!
God. Can't Lie.
That's right folks. He can't lie.
That means any promise, any word, any scripture you read in the Bible is 100 percent, without a doubt, beautifully pure truth.
How will you know if it is a lie Satan is whispering in your ear or God's truth being spoken.... flip open your Bible. God will never, ever tell you anything contrary to what His word says.
Oh, how I pray you would learn to believe these promises.... they can and will change your entire life.
Just to give you a little more uplifting energy for your day..... here are some of the promises God makes to those who love Him and follow Him....
THE PROMISES OF GOD....
Is that not REFRESHING!!! If you have given your life to Christ... you can claim all of these promises and trust in them completely!!!
God can't lie.
Each morning I wake up.... no matter how difficult the day prior may have been, no matter how challenging the day ahead may be....I claim His promise to me....
I am a woman ..... redeemed!!
Peace and Blessing,
