HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, NOT HOLDING TO THE TRUTH, FOR THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. WHEN HE LIES, HE SPEAKS HIS NATIVE LANGUAGE, FOR HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF LIES. YET BECAUSE I TELL THE TRUTH, YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME!
Precious Child, I want you to realize that there is one thing in this life that you cannot do without— MY TRUTH. Why not? My Truth is essential to you, because you have an enemy. His name is the father-of-lies. His weapon is DECEPTION. Do you realize the full meaning of deception? Deception is the practice of luring somebody into believing something THAT IS NOT TRUE.
GOD HATH FROM THE BEGINNING CHOSEN YOU TO SALVATION THROUGH SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT AND BELIEF OF THE TRUTH
(2 Thessalonians 2:13).
I am Your Father in Heaven, who understands the art of deception and who knows the enemy’s schemes, inside-out. From the beginning, I have chosen to save you through sanctification of My Spirit and trusting in the Truth. Child, I can save you from the enemy’s lies, but you need to be willing to come to Me to receive the Truth. When you stop leaning on your own perturbing perceptions and invite My Perspective into your own perceptions, no matter how true they seem to you, I will show you My Truth. When you believe and receive My Perspective, you will experience a miracle, each time.
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING
Are you willing to be saved from your perturbing perceptions, by believing the Truth, moment-by-moment? Then, tune in to your heart and find the perturbing perceptions that make you feel abandoned, condemned, rejected, or ashamed. Lay these perceptions before God and ask Him to show you His Truth. He will…if you are willing to believe.
PRAYER: Precious God, I praise You for choosing me from the beginning through sanctification of Your Spirit and belief of the Truth. I am willing to believe Your Truth, so I may be saved from the oppressing beliefs of the father-of-lies that make me feel sad, bad, and mad. I am willing to submit my daily perturbing perceptions to You, in exchange for Your Perspective. Teach me to trust You with all my heart, instead of leaning on my own insights, so I may give glory to Your Name.
Maintain an Awareness
Often times, we use the same defense mechanisms we saw our parents or other authority figures use, during our childhood lives. If they hid behind a smile to pretend that everything was OK, we learned to do the same.
