      "For he is a liar and the father of lies" John 8:44

      God is Truth and speaks the Truth. Satan lies and is the father of lies.

      A few days ago, over a breakfast meeting with a friend, we were discussing the awesome miracles of God. We both felt so privileged to be called to serve Him. During the discussion, we also touched on fact that the enemy keeps whispering lies into our thoughts, trying to stop us from serving God.

      Satan seems to know our weaknesses and he attacks our minds in those areas. For example, I told my friend that Satan often begins to tell me, "You are too old to put up another website. People will laugh at you for building a website. What do you know about the Internet? You will not be successful."

      But God tells me, "In your weakness I am strong. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. I called you and I will be faithful to do it. Because I am your shepherd, I am everything you need."

      Years ago, Dr. Bill Bright, the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, International explained this battle for our minds this way. As Christians, we have both a spiritual nature and a carnal nature, and each has its own channel. Our spiritual nature listens to the Holy Spirit channel, while our carnal nature listens to the enemy channel. Many times a day we have to decide whom we will listen to: the Holy Spirit and truth, or the enemy and lies. We make the choice.

      When the enemy begins to torment you with lies or tries to make you feel unworthy, turn the channel of your thoughts to the Holy Spirit channel and begin quoting Scripture to yourself and the enemy. That is what Jesus did when the enemy taunted Him and the enemy had to go away.

      Remember what the Psalmist said, "Your Word have I kept in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Memorize and keep the Godly affirmations handy. When the voice of the enemy would have you believe lies, quickly turn your thoughts to God's truths.

      Father God, You are Truth. There are no shadows with You. You are Light and Joy. Make us alert to the enemy's lies and turn our thoughts toward heaven. We love You. Amen.
