Chosen Generation
 
At some point in life everyone has believed a lie. Whether it was a lie from your family, a lie from classmates, a lie from a significant other, or a lie from a friend, we have all believed a lie. We believed people when they said we were worthless, not good enough, ugly, too this, too that, unlovable, crazy, stupid, and slow.  Whatever it was we believed, did we ever stop and take the time to consider what God said about us? Probably not. To be truthful, I used to believe everything anyone said about me, specifically the hurtful damaging lies that played like a bad record in my impressionable mind. After all we are human, and people's words and actions can have an affect on us whether toward the good or the bad. Unfortunately, we tend to remember the bad most of the time. But, I would venture to say that the very thing that the enemy says you are not is the very thing that God says you are.

Satan is referred to in the Word of God as the “father of lies (John 8:44).” His sole purpose is to make you believe the hype. He uses people on the earth to accomplish the task of making you feel as though you are not good enough and that you can’t make it through the situations in your life. Webster dictionary defines a lie as “a falsehood uttered or acted for the purpose of deception; an intentional violation of truth; an untruth spoken with the intention to deceive.” The enemy uses lies to defeat you so that you are not able to accomplish that which you were created to do. As well, he uses lies to usurp your peace, your joy, and your faith in the Almighty God. 


But, I say to you this day DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE! Never concentrate on what the enemy says you are not.  The word says in 3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” You must come to a place where you believe the very thing that God says you are. God says that you are beautiful, kind, special, chosen, set apart, loved. Believe Him! His greatest desire for His people is that we realize how special we are to Him, how much thought He put into our creation (Psalm 139; Jeremiah 1:5). The only way to refute a lie is with the Truth. What truth is God trying to get you to realize? Believe the words that He says.
