It is so important that we constantly remind ourselves of the truth God has for us. We have to constantly, each day, be in the Word and in prayer to defeat the lies the enemy tells us. Lies can sometimes look so much like the truth. But the power of the Presence of God and His word defeats every lie. 

One of these lies that I believe is so prevalent among Christians is that we believe we aren’t making a difference or that our small acts of obedience and kindness aren’t that significant. Nothing discourages me more than when I believe that I’m not making a difference. And I think that most of the time when we believe that lie, we stop doing the good things we were doing. Of course the enemy wants to discourage us to stop what we are doing when we are on the brink of a breakthrough! 

So, my encouragement today is:
Don’t give up. Keep pushing forward. Keep arming yourself with God’s truth and with prayer. It will defeat every lie. And yes, you are making a difference and each small step of faith and obedience you take matters. Most importantly, it matters to God.

You are truly everything that God says you are. You are redeemed, forgiven, a conqueror, loved, and cherished. You are unique and have a specific purpose God has called you to. All these things are true of you! 

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
–Ephesians 6:11-12(NIV)
