The devil has many names. Satan, the accuser and of course the deceiver. There is no doubt that one of the devil’s favorite weapon is using lies to deceive man.
Be armed with this knowledge of the devil’s 3 favorite lies and guard your heart against falling into sin the next time you hear the devil’s voice whispering into your ears.
Satan knows that being busy keeps us and our attention away from God. The devil loves to whisper into our ears and say ‘You’ve got to work harder to make it!’.
1. You need to overwork yourself to pull ahead
Satan likes telling us that we have to compete through life to keep up appearances and to remain in good standing, but constant competition can lead to the derailment of our hearts and minds. The devil likes to keep us busy and stretch ourselves to the breaking point, but we don’t have to do that to ourselves. We’ve already won. The moment we accept that God reigns over all others, we pull ourselves ahead and only need to rely on Him and hold tight to His promise that we are good enough. Always.
“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb…” (Rev. 12:11)
