Who Have You Been Listening To Lately?

Satan's pull over man began when he turned the minds of Adam and Eve against God. In order for to be done, he had to lie to them about God, and they had to listen. In that defining moment, he lied to them about God's goodness, God's Word, and God's intentions. Satan is still using his old tricks, Jesus said that when the devil "speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar"(John 8:44). It should not be strange, then, that when trouble interrupts our lives, the father of lies whispers in our ears and suddenly we are questioning God' goodness. When we are told to follow His commands, we wonder if His Word is really true in the first place. When Jesus tells us things like, "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth"(Matthew 6:19), Satan tells us that the good life is about accumulating things, here, causing us to doubt God's good intentions.

Our problem appears to be that we, like Adam and Eve, believe Satan's lies. And when we do, our loyalty to God is compromised. Then our enemy slithers away to the next assignment, leaving us alone to face our regrets and the realization that his lies have seduced us away from our truest and dearest Friend.
