Accept the Truth and Reject the Imposter's Lies

ImageA young man called my office yesterday to ask about the copier we use. He said they had word that the supplies were about to increase in price and now would be a good time to get a case of toner before it happens. I asked him what company he was calling from and immediately he hung up. Imposter. He was actually lying to me to get me to verbally agree to ordering those supplies from a company we don’t do business with. As soon as I asked where he was from he was gone. He was lying and trying to get me to accept it as truth. As soon as I spoke a truth back to him it was over. 
Be careful. There is an imposter out there. He’s disguising himself as truth and he’s so not. He will speak to your fears. He’ll tell you you’re unworthy, useless, throw away and reject. He’ll agree with your negative thoughts about yourself. He will shout yes when you shout ugly. He will clap when you say nobody loves you. He will agree that your prayers are not heard. He will help you live in his lies. He will hand you the lock and let you be the one who locks yourself in to the dungeon of helplessness and hopelessness.
The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy. He will attempt to take control of your thought life in three areas: your past, your present and your intercession. If the enemy can get you to believe the lies of your past, your present feelings of unworthiness and that your prayers can’t be answered he has you right where he wants you. Your childhood memories are killed, your hope for your life to have meaning is stolen and your prayers will be destroyed. 
He wants you to believe that you are whatever anyone has ever said about you negatively. He doesn’t want you to move on from your past. He wants you to live in the darkness of your present situation. You may hear a voice inside your head saying you’re too old to change. You may be telling yourself it’s too late, you’ve gone too far or it’s all over for you. Lies, each and every word is a lie. 
You may believe that the one you love and pray for is hopeless. You must learn to accept those who are having issues in their walk with God. But you must learn to reject the lie that they will never change. It’s time to give them to God because His desire for all mankind is that they come to saving faith in Christ. It doesn’t matter what it looks like. God’s plan is for them to be saved, sealed, delivered, set free and living for Him. So keep on praying and reject the lies.
God speaks to our hearts: I have sent Christ to give you life and to give it in abundance, full measure and running over. I want you to be fully informed of the truth, so that you will be a strong believer, full of faith and armed for the day. So today is your day to get stronger. It’s time to reject the lies that you are telling yourself. Quit building the fire for the enemy’s camp. You might have heard these lies and rehearsed them in your mind all your life; but today is the day to set things right. I AM your healer, your purpose, your future, your hope, your truth and your way to live. I bring light onto any situation and will reveal all that needs to be revealed so that you can live a valiant, invincible live for Me. I love you and I have called you out of darkness. I love you and I have made a way for you to live in the light of My Word. No weapon formed against you will prosper. No lie can be your truth as you learn to accept what I say and reject the enemy’s taunts and lies. 
Oh beloved. I know it’s not always easy to rise above the past. It’s hard sometimes to listen to God’s truth while you are being rejected, belittled, or ignored. You may feel like unwanted and unwelcome, but God’s truth will pick you up and set you securely on high. You are accepted in the beloved when you give your heart to Christ. It’s time to learn to live loved and reject the enemy’s lies. It will get easier and easier as you begin to apply God’s Word, His Truth, to every area of your life. Instead of hurts and rejection, you will find acceptance to bloom in your heart. And once acceptance has taken root and begins to grow you will find that other situations will become clearer and you will believe God’s truth about you. 
God loves you and He’s for you and that’s the truth you can live in all the days of your life as you live free and loved and cherished. 
Psalm 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
Matthew 4:4 But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
2 Corinthians 10: 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; KJV
Ephesians 6:12-13 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
