I am officially "Over the Hill."  I'm coming out of the locker room after half-time and ready for the 2nd half.  When I think about it though, 40's are prime time.  When you are young, you have a lot of energy, but no wisdom or life experience.  When you are old you have a lot of wisdom, but no energy.  But in your 40's, you have a little bit of both.  So let's do this!!!!

lies powered by truth

The enemy's lies are powered by truth - Steven Furtick

When the enemy speaks shame and condemnation over us, it is easy to believe as truth because there is usually some truth in it.  When the devil brings up our past sin and failures, he tells us we are not good enough and he is right.  The lie comes in when he tells us "we are forever, what we have done."  While the truth is, God extends us grace and forgiveness and Jesus makes us "good enough" as HE IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS!  We fall for this trap because it is laced with truth.  The enemy is smooth at tempting us with partial truths that lead us to slavery.  When the enemy speaks shame on us, we must confess our sin before God and then receive God's grace and forgiveness and continue to move forward with Jesus.
