Lies the Enemy Told me (and God’s response)

lies-the-enemy-told-me

Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44.) There is no truth in him; he can’t even tell a fraction of the truth. However with every lie that the enemy throws your way, God will be there to respond with the truth.

The enemy told me that God could never forgive me. He convinced me that I was too far gone, that Jesus could never forgive someone as terrible as me. He went as far as to say that it would be selfish of me to seek forgiveness.

God said that there was nothing I could do that He wouldn’t forgive me for. God has made me alive in Christ even though I was drowning in a sea of sin; now I am drowning in a sea of grace (Ephesians 2:5!)

The enemy told me that I would never be enough. I would never be good enough, pretty enough, skinny enough, funny enough, graceful enough; No matter what I did I would never, ever be enough.

God said that I have ALWAYS been enough. I was enough for Him to give up His only begotten Son. I was enough for Jesus to give up His heavenly home; to trade divinity for humanity (and everything being human entails) and die a horrific death on a cross. I am and always will be enough (John 3:16.)

The enemy told me that I’m weak. Too weak. Too fragile. Too breakable. He told me that with a huff and a puff, I would fall straight down. He told me I didn’t have the strength to resist him, that I shouldn’t even bother putting up a fight.

God said that He is my strength! God said I was never meant to be strong enough to face this world (and Satan) on my own. My weakness is what showcases God’s strength (2 Corinthians 12:9.) All I have to do is put my trust in Him!

The enemy told me that God couldn’t hear my prayers. Satan told me that God was completely deaf towards my pleas and that if He did hear me, He didn’t care. Satan told me that I should just quit praying because there’s no point to it.

God said He hears everything I ask according to His will (1 John 5:14) and all I have to do is ask and it will be given to me (Matthew 7:7.) He said that Satan wants me to think that praying doesn’t work because the more I pray the stronger my connection to Him is, and the stronger my connection Him is the more powerful I become.

The enemy told me that I could never escape my past. He told me my mistakes will haunt me forever; that I will never feel anything but guilt and shame.

God said there is nothing to escape. I am now a new creation in Christ and the old me is dead and gone along with my past (2 Corinthians 5:17.) God told me that Satan’s sole purpose is to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus came to set me free and let me live life abundantly (John 10:10!)

These are just a few of the lies that the enemy has told me, just the tip of the ice berg, and I am sure there are many more to come. Satan’s goal is to fill your mind with so much muck that you don’t know what way is up. However, if you fill your mind with the Word of God then there will be no room for the enemies lies!

    This one has to be my favorite. So many times I feel I’m not good enough and that I can’t do things. But I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Many times I get in this depressed mood that no one likes me and no one wants to be around me when all along its Satan making me feel the way I do. Even if no one on this Earth loved me or ever wanted to be around me, there is one person up in heaven that loves me unconditionally that will never leave me nor forsake me. The devil tries so hard to makes us feel like we are worthless but I know one person, my God, who thought I was worth dying for. 🙂 really really loved this. I had a rough day at work today and this really made my day. Thank you so much!

      You’re not alone! Satan uses this tactic on a lot of people. His goal is to make you feel so alone and disconnected that you give up, but God is ALWAYS there for you and He will always love you! I’m praying for you, girl! And if you ever need anything I’m here.
