When [the devil]
speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father
of it (John 8:44)

Satan’s sway over mankind began when he turned the minds of
Adam and Eve against God. In order to pull it off, he had to lie to them about
God – and they had to fall for it. In that defining moment, he lied to them
about God’s goodness, God’s Word, and God’s intentions (Gen.3:1-6).

Satan is still up to his old tricks. Jesus said that when
the devil “speak a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar”.
(John 8:44). It should not be surprising, then that when trouble interrupts our
lives, the father of lies whispers in our ears and suddenly we are questioning
God’s goodness. When we are told to follow His commands, we wonder if His Word is really true in the first place.
When Jesus tells us things like, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on
earth” (Matt.6:19), satan tells us that the good life is about piling up things
here, causing us to doubt God’s good intentions.

Our problem is that we, like Adam and Eve, believe satan’s
lies. And when we do, our loyalty to God is compromised. Then our enemy slithers
off to his next assignment, leaving us alone to face our regrets and the
realization that his lies have seduced us away from our truest and dearest
Friend. Who have you been listening to lately? – Joe Stowell

Satan can catch you by surprise

And stop you in your tracks,

So keep on guard and trust God’s Word,

Resist his strong attacks.-Branon

The power of satan is no match for
the power of God’s Word.

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria
and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
