In the bible there are many verses which tells us how GOD feels about this word deception. And yet in our society there is so much of it going on that people flock to as if it’s the best thing going since butter and bread.
Why do we believe in deception? What is really missing on the inside of us that causes a person to be deceived? We have Jesus living on the inside of us and yet we are to know truth but we fall for these deceptions and we deceive ourselves.
Could it be that it’s a heart issue? That we 100% don’t trust God like we say? Think about it, when things come your way and he honest do you always reach for the word of God or do you go by your intellect and experiences? If we all would be honest we go by our experiences first and when that don’t work out than we go to Jesus second. How do you think that makes Him feel? I believe it hurts the Father’s heart. That we His children don’t come to Him first, as if we know His way is right but something on the inside of us says do it your way first.
Today I want to share a few verses with you on deception and as you read them let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart all day concerning these words. Let Him show you where we are wrong, and from their repent and make it right in God’s eye..AMEN
