The second verse of Fear is a Liar by Zach Williams
“When he told you were troubled
You’ll forever be alone
When he told you you should run away
You’ll never find a home
When he told you you were dirty
And you should be ashamed
When he told you you could be the one
That grace could never change
Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar “
I think it’s safe to say we have ALL felt that way at some point or other.
In John 8:44, Jesus is speaking and He says, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. 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. “
Man, Jesus did NOT mince any words here. He was about as straightforward as He could have possibly been, right? He often taught with parables, but here He did not. I believe it is because He KNEW we would struggle with this until the end of time and He wanted to make it plain as day for our simple minds!
I have no clue where in the world this graphic came from but I LOVE it. It is such a great guide to determine whether a feeling is actually from the Truth (Jesus) or from the Liar (the devil.)
FEAR IS A LIAR!! Why? Because as Jesus told us, FEAR is quite LITERALLY the enemy. Who is the enemy? Satan. So FEAR is THE DEVIL. Satan’s native language=lies. The devil who speaks LIES as much as you and I speak English. So why do we ALLOW his voice to penetrate and control our thoughts as much as we do?
Basically all our anxious and depressed thoughts quite literally come from the column on the right. I encourage you to screenshot that graphic above. Make it your phone’s home screen if you feel you should. This way, when you start to feel a yucky feeling, you can reference the chart and decide who put that emotion there.
God or the enemy?
Thank you for joining me today and I hope your eyes were opened and the truth was revealed to your heart.
