John 8:44 AMP: You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths.
My dear friend in Christ, I presume you must have heard of the saying, that as little as lie won’t hurt. But the truth you may not have thought about is that you are aligning yourself with the devil who is the father of lies. The Bible today records that it is natural for him (the devil) to lie.
You can discipline yourself not to condone any form of your lie no matter how small it may be. In summary, whenever you are alone and the patterns of thoughts that always cross your mind are how to deceive, malign, cheat and hurt other people and you take pleasure in and dwell on such thoughts, then you really need help. This is because the devil is ruling your heart and so he always fill your mind with such evil thoughts and desires. I urge you to make an effort to always stand by the truth wherever you find yourself. Ask God to help me get over lies of all sorts. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I will stand by the truth always.
1. Oh Lord my God, keep me from the temptations of lies.
2. Precious Holy Spirit, help me to stand by the truth, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
3. Please add your personal intentions.
