The Belt Of Truth Part 3; God is The Truth

“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.

Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:11, 14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We've been talking lately about the Belt of Truth. God has placed a priority on truth. He understands more then anyone the enemy that is seeking to devour us (1Pet 5:8). I showed you in Belt of Truth; Mind Games that Satan's greatest weapon against us is deception. The worst problem with deception is that people don't know they are deceived. So how do we steer clear of deception and walk in the total victory that is ours?

“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.””
‭‭John‬ ‭8:32‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
‭‭John‬ ‭14:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Knowing Christ is important, because he is the truth!

  According to these two scriptures truth equates freedom & Jesus is that truth. The only way to stay completely free of Satan's deceptions is to fix your eyes on Christ and his word (The Bible) to us. In other words, we have to make Christ our focus above anything else. But how do we fix our gaze on Christ and his word? We do it through meditation. 

    What is meditation? It is thinking about and talking about something so much that it flows out of you. In other words, if you are constantly watching scary movies then you will find yourself walking in a lot of fear. But if you are consistently reading about Christ and the fact that you are protected under his wings, fear will be rendered powerless. If you want a more in depth teaching on meditation check out my teaching Hide It Away 

      As you can see through these scriptures, the only way for us to stand against Satan is through truth. And the only way to step into that truth and be victorious is through meditation. In my next teaching I want to show you how Jesus stood victorious against Satan's deceptions.

Be Blessed
