Lies, lies, and more lies. Make no mistake the goal of the enemy is to try to get you to see your identity through lies. You are a new creation. And you partake in that divine reality through the promises of God (2 Peter 1:4). But the enemy whispers in your ear just like he did to Adam & Eve. Did God really say….? Did He really say you were a new creation? If you are why are you doubting His words? And here comes the deceiver!
With many words he tries to get you to REACT out of a place of fear instead of RESPONDING in a place of faith (Matthew 4:3). A strong-hold is when we take credit for his thoughts. As soon as a strong-hold is formed the enemy (familiar spirit) comes in and begins whispering. And now if we see our identity through this lie, we will think it is from us, and that’s when we let it blur our heart perception (Proverbs 4:23). We can tell this is the case by listening to speech because out of the heart the mouth speaks (Matthew 15:18).
This is why the Bible says to RENEW your mind and cast out thoughts that try to exalt themselves above the knowledge of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). Because when you agree with God’s truth about you – you will begin to flow from a Heaven to Earth reality. Why? Because Earth will no longer be where you get your identity from. And you will begin to see yourself as a Son/Daughter with a Father who has already lavished great and wonderful promises on you. In fact, He has equipped you with every good thing and every good work. (2 Peter 1:3). And we simply give the AMEN (So be it, I am fully persuaded 2 Corinthians 1:20).
