Welcome friends. I realize a picture of giant mosquito cartoon does not really say welcome, so I wanted to make sure to welcome you before I started into this post!
I was outside typing this up. It was a glorious day outside.. so fall like in the middle of what should be summer that it makes you want to drink a pumpkin spice latte, wear a sweatshirt and have a bonfire. However there was this one pesky thing. It has rained a TON at our house.. in fact it was raining just then, and there is a good bit of water that
puddles makes a mini lake (always where I happen to park my car and I always end up forgetting until SPLASH.. oops I am wet and laughingly stuck in the quicksand!)
Anyways, this mini lake has brought MANY man-eating mosquito’s. And as I was typing one decided to feast on my face. I kept smacking and missing, and it kept landing and giving me kisses (not the kind one wants). Those mosquito kisses leave their annoying itchy marks .. and so I kept smacking until SUCCESS! It was dead.
I think Satan and His lies are alot like those mosquito’s. They suck the life right out of you.
They start out as buzzing annoyances in the ear of your heart, eventually when they really get in there, they leave an itchy mark. Then if you happen to scratch them, it can cause somethings as intense as an infection.
Satan is the Father of lies.
Jesus the way the truth and the Life.
Satan comes to steal and kill and destroy
Jesus= life and abundant life
His truths breath life into our soul.
Satan’s lies suck the life out of you.
I don’t know what lies the enemy tells you. I know what He whispers to me. This weekend for example, I lived out some of my God sized dreams and did a Bloom women’s conference. This is our 4th one.. and I cannot even tell you what joy it brings me to get to proclaim God’s truth, ask Him to speak– and believe in the power of His word to change lives.
BUT: it doesn’t matter how many people said good things about it.. a few negative comments and that’s all I could think about.
And the life began to be sucked right out of that God sized dream.
praise the Lord I recognized the buzzing, the annoyance, the I’m going to try to suck the life out of you lies of the enemy. And how once one comes they all do.
I literally had to make a choice to grab the powerful truth of God’s word, the sword of the Spirit and fight.
I am praying for you, that when those lies come to suck the life out of you: you SQUASH them, KILL Them, destroy them with the POWERFUL truth of God.
What is one truth you will use today?
