MFM Daily Devotional 18 February 2023 MESSAGE
Still, on the complete armour of God, we are instructed to guide our loins with the Belt of Truth. This is the piece of armour that keeps our dressing as soldiers firm and in place like physical soldiers. Remember, that the devil is a liar, and the father of lies. How can someone claim to be a Christian, yet operate in the jurisdiction of satan, the liar himself. Such a person is already a failure even before venturing into battle.
A house divided against itself shall not stand. It takes the Truth to debunk all lies and put the liar to flight. All the enemies of our soul listed in verse 12: ‘principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places”, are all satan’s cohorts; and the only way to outwit them is by allowing the Truth of God’s word to be revealed, according to John 8:32, 36.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one gets to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). It becomes necessary, therefore, that you know the Truth and live accordingly, if you must be a winner on the battlefield of life. Satan has come to kill, to steal and to destroy, but Jesus has come to give abundant life. A liar would easily fall prey to the devil. But when you are standing on the Truth and living a life worthy of Him, you will remain a conqueror in the battles of life.
Do not be deceived neither embrace overconfidence. The Bible warns that anyone who thinks he stands should take heed lest he falls. Some, even among the early Christians, became prey to the lies of the devil. Remember Ananias and Sapphira? They were a Christian couple who thought they could deceive the Holy Spirit. In Acts chapter 5, they connived to keep back some money in deception from the sale of their land.
Rather than tell the truth to Apostle Peter, they told lies in compromise and both fell down and died without remedy. The same would happen to any supposed child of God who is still living in lies.
