Often times when we encounter uncomfortable issues in life and we have to tell it like it is, it is not that easy. However, it is easier to tell it like we want it. When we do this we cover up things we do not want revealed, we try to hide the truth. It is truly amazing how quickly we forget that God knows the truth and nothing but the truth and He’s watching us tell that big fat lie. No, not a half lie or half-truth, but just a lie …period. We so easily allow the devil to drive our car…drive us to do irrational things. Lying is not always intentional, it is human nature because humanity inherited the lying spirit of the devil that came through Adam and Eve. Lying is just one of the parts of the flesh that can only be crucified through accepting our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who gives us His Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth with boldness and discretion. The Holy Spirit will not allow the devil to drive your car. He won’t let the devil take the wheel. Remember, some things are better left unsaid. It is imperative that we guard our tongue and maybe less lies will come out. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 12: 36 saying: And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak.
Ephesians 4:25 reminds us to stop telling lies. Father God, According to Proverbs 6:16-19, lying is one of the seven things that the Lord hates. In the name of Jesus intervene in the lives of those who consistently and purposely lie. The spirit of lying is detrimental to the spiritual well-being for you said that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire. Let us remember that Satan is the father of lies. Don’t let him drive your car! Don’t let him take control! Lord God we thank you for helping all of us in the issues, habits, shortcomings and for bringing us to our true identity in Jesus Christ!
