John 8:44-45 (AMP) 44 You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false. 45 But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me [do not trust Me, do not rely on Me, or adhere to Me].
Know the character of your enemy. It’s important to know the Character of God but also of the Devil. We know that God is good. When good things happen we know it’s good. When somebody is being mean to you then we shouldn’t waste our time getting upset at the person but realize it is the Devil working through that person to distract you from making progress in your life. We have to reach a time of realizing what is really going on.
The Devil is a liar. Jesus is The Truth. Anything that is not in agreement with God’s word is a lie from Satan no matter who it comes from. The Devil will try to reason with us and make us think things are different or everything in the bible is not true or make sense. The Devil is a thief and a murderer. The Devil is the king of deception. He’ll try to make us think that our current bad circumstances are the way our life has to be, but it is not always that way. We need to recognize when some of the circumstances in our lives are caused by the Devil.
It’s time we get to know what the bible says about good things and fight the Devil back with the Word of God!
John 10:10 (AMP) 10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
