Focused on the Truth

Here’s a quick blurb from Paulie’s message about fixing your eyes on things that are true.

The enemy is the father of all lies. His ultimate plan for us is to get us to listen to and entertain the lies that he tells us on a daily basis.  As Christians, when we hear or think anything that is contrary to the Word of God, we must immediately understand that the opposite is true.

Think of the activity we did with synonyms and antonyms of the word “true.” Every time you hear a trumped-up word or thought, know that the God speaks the opposite, which is truth from the Word of God. The only way we’re going to keep the lies of the enemy from taking root in our lives is to keep our eyes fixed on things that are true.  Phil. 3:14 (NLV) says,

“My eyes are on the crown. I want to win the race and get the crown of God’s call from heaven through Christ Jesus.”

Keep your eyes fixed on the reward of eternal life God has for you and you will never be satisfied with listening to any lies the enemy is telling you.
