I was messaging my friends this morning and I didn’t just confuse her by what I said, I think I was pretty confused too. I told her about how sometimes there’s lies in our lives that in reality isn’t actually a lie, but once you look at the Kingdom it is a full on lie.
When something is against God’s nature it’s probably a lie.
If it’s not best for you, it’s probably a lie.
If it’s not propelling/drawing you into your destiny, it’s probably a lie.
If it’s causing you to lie, it’s probably a lie.
if it’s causing you to sin, it’s probably a lie.
When I tried to explain to her what I mean I suddenly got this pretty cool revelation about what the enemy likes to do when he attacks. He is like the father of confusion, so he will do everything in his power to confuse you.
The enemy almost always ask questions. He has rarely made any statements in my life. When he asks a question he tries to confuse you, or bring you to a place of doubt. I suddenly remembered that even in the beginning when Eve was there the serpent used this tactic.
He uses questions to bring confusion.
He uses questions to question your identity in Christ.
He uses questions to make you stumble into old habits.
He uses questions for you to doubt God’s goodness.
In Genesis 3, we see examples of this.
“Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
The enemy asked: “DID GOD REALLY SAY?”
I think that the best way to possibly punch that accusation/questions in the face is by simply saying “Yes He did!”
You see, we need to know exactly what God is saying about us, about our situation. By reading the bible and praying we gain insight into the enemy’s schemes. We get to agree with heaven and bring change. We can also use vulnerability and accountability with friends as a tool to help you in difficult times. By asking the people in your life, your people, for help you become stronger. When you can be truly yourself, you get to be honest and when you are honest, real and raw, things start happening. You find out who you truly are. God never intended for us to do this life alone.
Sometimes it’s as simple as this. Find someone you like, someone you want to be more like, and then you just stay close! People will help you see the lies in your life when you struggle to see them yourself. The right people will also call out the best in you and they will help you become everything you were destined to.
