I will never forget the first time he said the words to me. They hit me like a wrecking ball to an old brick building.
“You are believing lies.”
The words were harsh. but covered in love. And, I knew his statement was true.
My husband reminded me that I was choosing to believe the lies of the enemy over the truth of my Father.
Satan Tells Me…
Author and speaker Priscilla Shirer says that believing lies is the same as a warrior headed to battle without a helmet (the Helmet of Salvation). Believing lies is like entering war without protecting our minds with truth.
It seems silly. Why would a person do this? But, I know the answer. The lies are easier to believe.
Satan Tells Me…
Below is a list of the lies Satan tells us and God’s truth with verses to denounce each lie. I encourage you to take this list to your Quiet Time and let the truth soak deep into the pores of your soul. Then write these truths in your Quiet Time Journal, print the list in a PDF to keep (image above), and post these around your home using 3×5 cards or post-it notes.

When asked to review a necklace, I chose the Heart Connected Necklace.
Two hearts connected by the cross; a beautiful symbol of the bond we have with others because of God’s love for us. Inspired by 1 John 4:19, “We love because He first loved us.” Paired with a delicate strand of genuine garnets and asymmetrical freshwater pearl beading.
Arriving beautiful wrapped and in a soft pouch, the necklace is simple and lightweight. I look forward to wearing it.
