Daily Bible Study with Purpose

🔴 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.” 

 
 
When we tell one lie, we may as well get ready to say another one and yet another! We know who the father of lies is, and we know that Satan only comes to kill, steal, and destroy our relationship with God and with each other. Satan personifies deceit, and not only does he lie to us, but he never misses an opportunity to cause us to lie. When we doubt God, we create insecurity that causes fear, leading us to inflict our self-determination and our plan to succeed or overcome.
 
We could learn lessons from Abram during the famine in Canaan to go to Egypt and lied that his wife Sarai was his sister (a half-truth because she was his father’s child). Abram was more concerned about his life rather than the honor of his wife. I suggest you read the rest of this story in Genesis 12:10-20. You could go back a little further and read in Genesis Chapter 3:1-7 about Satan’s deception with Eve and how she fell for Satan’s lies and Adam, who knew better but went along. It’s no doubt why “Do not lie” is one of the written commandments of God that we must obey.
 
 

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.

Fear Exposed, Part 2, The Podcast

SHOW NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com

🟥The Message:

We often cover what we do not want to reveal. What has fear made you hide? Let’s expose the truth through God’s Word. 

Fear Exposed:

A root is- the part of a plant that attaches it to the ground or to a support, typically underground, conveying water and nourishment to the rest of the plant via numerous branches and fibers.

 

Meditate plan mentally; consider: to think carefully about something.
Think carefully and consider God’s Word every moment of every day. He does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work. Clarifying, organizing, and preparing to do our assignment each day takes strategic planning with God. 

Jorge Ortega y Gasset, “Tell me to what you pay attention, and I will tell you who you are.”

 

🟥 Take Action

The prosperity gospel is not just about preaching health and wealth. Any idol that determines to be the work we must do to receive what has been done is a prosperity preaching. For example, patriotism, happiness, liberty, miracles, any message that hides the Good News that God is Sovereign is supporting idolatry. Elevation of the gift above the Giver. Broken down to the root, prosperity gospel seizes opportunities to make money, not transform lives. God saves us because we cannot live our best life now.

Who or what has your emotional attention?

What will happen if you challenge the lie and ask God for the purpose of your day? Don’t be afraid to stand firm and overcome the trial of people-pleasing. 

Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. “

Are You Big Mad? The Podcast

Bible reading: Ephesians 4:17-27


Hello, People of Purpose,

Welcome to season 3! This year we are breaking down our emotions and actively moving beyond arrogance, anger, pride, and fear. Up first is anger…yes I know a little heavy for the beginning, however we all experience this emotion. Some of us are emotionally balanced and, to maintain stability, we must regularly check in with ourselves. Achieving balance is a process. It is a lifelong journey of practicing thoughtfulness, kindness, and grace with ourselves and others.
I pray you will come along for the journey as we dive deeper and examine through my testimonies as well as others what anger, arrogance, pride, and fear has stolen from our purpose.
Grab your Bibles, journals, pens, and beverage of choice and let us get started. We are working from the inside out by giving Christ our innermost being. Does Christ have your heart?
~Torrie
