I want to talk to you today about Don't Believe The Lies. We're living in a time when there's more deception than ever. Americans lost $30 billion last year in scans. Practically every day on our phone, email, social media someone's trying to deceive us, and trick us into giving our personal information. There are financial scams, relationship scams, property scams. And these schemers are skilled, they're professional, they know human nature. Can I tell you who the biggest scammer is? Jesus said in John 8:44:
Satan is a liar, and the father of all lies. There is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language.
When we get scammed by people, it can cost us money, time, effort. But if you let the enemy scam you it can cost you your destiny. Identity theft is a major problem, but the a biggest identity thief is the enemy. He knows who you are: a child of the Most High God, fearfully and wonderfully made. He can see your crown of favor, your robe of righteousness and royal blood flowing through your veins. He'll go to work to try to deceive you into believing a lie. He'll whisper, "You're not valuable, you're not attractive, nobody cares about you" or "You've made too many mistakes. Look at all your flaws and weaknesses". If you believe those lies, he'll steal your identity, he'll talk you out of who you are.
