🔴 THE MULTIPLE COSTS OF LIES
John 8:44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. From the beginning, he was a murderer, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
We can hold everything up to the truth of God’s Word. Challenge Satan by seeking the wisdom of the Lord.
Here are a few Scriptures to remind you of God’s Truth when combating the adversary’s schemes.
- 1 John 3:18 instructs us, “Little children, let us not love in word talk but in deed and in truth.”
- We can ask God Psalm 25:5 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you, I wait all day long.
- John 8:32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
- Psalm 145:18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Remember God never tires of our efforts to become more like Him.
Matthew 7:7-8 Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
