I want to share with you from the Holy Scriptures about what God thinks of you. Why? Because God’s people are under attack by the enemy day and night. The devil is constantly chipping away at our identity in Christ to bring us down, so we do not fulfill our destinies. But instead of listening to his lies, it’s time to turn the tables around, wear him out with the promises of God’s Word. Let’s get started.
God warns us in His Word that the enemy is the accuser of the brethren, (Rev. 12:10). Unfortunately, he’s good at making people feel bad about themselves. But let’s shine the Spirit of Revelation on these types of lies. God says that “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace (Eph. 1:7). He also assures us in Second Corinthians 5:21, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” So, the next time the enemy whispers his nasty lies to you, you respond aloud and say, “I am redeemed and forgiven, those things are in the past, and I have become new in Christ Jesus.”
Another lie of the devil is that God does not love us, He can’t love us because of what we’ve done. How should we respond biblically to this emotional abuse? “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),” (Eph. 2:4-5). And the Lord wants our inner man to be strengthened by His Spirit, “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Eph. 3:17-19). We wear down the devil’s verbal tactics when we stand up against him and declare God truth, “I have been saved by God’s mercy and grace. And Christ dwells in my heart, and I am grounded and rooted in His love.”
When the enemy tears you down and says you are not important, you don’t matter, or that you are worthless. You turn that devil upside down and confidently declare by faith, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Ps. 139:14b), “I was bought with a price” (1Cor. 6:20), “The Son of God, loves me and gave Himself for me.” (See Gal. 2:20.) And “Precious are His thoughts towards me”, (Ps. 139: 17).
This is how we are to respond to satan’s lies against us, by wearing him down with God’s Word.
