After this weekend’s message I gathered a few Scripture quotes that refute some of the common lies of the enemy. These verses fight against lies that I often buy or the people I love are deceived by. Memorizing Scripture, implanting it in our hearts and minds is one way to defeat the enemy.
Lie: I will never change.
Truth: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Lie: God cannot be trusted.
Truth: “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him?” Romans 8:31-32
Lie: I am worthless.
Truth: “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” – Romans 8:16-17
Lie: I am helpless.
Truth: “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37 – 39
Lie: They’re just hopeless.
Truth: “Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove that splinter from your eye,’ while the wooden beam is in your eye? You hypocrite, remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.” – Matthew 7:3-5
Lie: God doesn’t care about my needs.
Truth: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.” – Matthew 7:7-11
