Topic: The Truth Will Never Fail You [TREM Devotional 31 January 2019]
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
One of the greatest weapons of the devil is deception, and he uses it to attack God’s people. He comes to intimidate you, put you under pressure and gives you an impression that you are in trouble. Unfortunately, because a lot of people are ignorant, they fall for his deception and end up becoming a prey to him. This is never God’s intention.
Beloved, the New Creation in Christ Jesus has all the ingredients to overcome anything that comes against him. To say that a New Creation can be defeated is an insult to the finished work of Christ. We are in Christ and if Christ cannot be defeated, a New Creation cannot be defeated.
Paul says in Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me”.(KJV) In other words, it is no longer your life but the life of Christ. You are a New Creation; you don’t have any ingredient for failure or defeat at all. That is not to say that the devil would not come; he will come but you have everything that is necessary to shut him up.
The problem is that many of God’s people just love excitement. They love all this ‘wildfire kind of thing’ and do not receive understanding. People who have understanding never fret when there is a challenge. I want to assure you that whatever the devil is saying in your life will not come to pass. You know he is a liar from the beginning. The Bible says he is the father of liars; he has no truth in him. You will fulfil God’s Word
