Last weekend at our family reunion…two of my cousins and I were visiting and sharing about some of our recent struggles.
We talked about how in the midst of our struggles….Satan is going to tell us lies.
Lies that he really wants us to believe. Lies that make us doubt what we know to be truth. Lies that cause us extreme pain. Lies that break our hearts and challenge our faith.
Even though we know God’s truth…when we’ve been hurt or when tragedy occurs in our lives…the lies can cover up the truth and take over our minds and hearts.
Which is exactly what Satan wants.
And we usually don’t even recognize it.
So my cousins and I talked about how we need to ask God to expose the lies.
And then we need to listen.
Just listen…so that our eyes can be opened to see and understand what the lies are.
Because when we know what the lies are…we can re-learn what the truth is.
What God’s truth is.
We are whole. We are loved. We are taken care of.
God never fails us.
God IS truth.
And the Truth will set us free.
