EVER SINCE THE DEVIL GOT KICKED OUT of heaven, he’s been breathing out lies and violence (Eze.28:12-17). Consider four lies Satan continually tells us:

1.  You’re a failure.  Satan wants you to believe that your faults are too big to be covered by God’s grace.  God would have you reply, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.”  (Rom.8:1)

2.  You don’t deserve to be unhappy.  Satan attempts to convince you that if you just get out from under this relationship or family pressure you’ll be happy.  God’s word replies, “The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart”  (Psa.19:8)

3.  Nobody will find out.  You may think nobody will ever discover that little sin promising instant satisfaction, but God’s Word says, “Be  sure your sins will find you out” (Num.32:23).

4.  If I had__________, I’d be happier.  Satan wants you to focus on what others have.  God’s word says, “Be content with such things as you have.  For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you'” (Heb.13:5).

If we refuse to believe Satan’s lies, we render him powerless.  Resist him by remembering the truth of God’s Word!  And don’t believe his lies.
