Come and exalt Jehovah, for Thou has lifted me above my enemies Your banner over me is love.

Yes! Lord, Your banner over us is love. Thank You for a fruitful week. Thank You for protecting and guiding us from all evil, thank You for Being there for us, thank You for watching over us, Almighty King of glory, we lift You on high in Jesus Name. let everything that has breathe Praise Your Holy Name forever and ever.

Arise! O Lord and come to our aid. Hide us from all evil, keep us safe in your bosom and protect us from all evil in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how are you doing? We cannot hide it from it God, because He see us just as we are. We are children of God and should be blameless before God and man but that is not usually the case. We run, we hide, we fret, we use wrong measures, we engage in all manners of ill and the Spirit of God is tell us it ought not be us but we should make our way blameless and pure so that we should withstand satan and his vises.

Come along with me child of God and receive help from above to live a righteous life:

Three Forms of Dishonesty

Do not give false testimony against your neighbor.—Exodus 20:16

The suggestion that even mature Christians can inwardly resist truth might shock some, but the real issue is—is it true?

Among the popular defenses we use to resist truth, the first is projection. This occurs when we are to blame for something, but we project the blame onto someone else so that we can feel more comfortable about ourselves. It may sound a simple thing, but all dishonesty is destructive—even simple dishonesty.

Then take the defense of denial. How many times do we refuse to face the fact that we may be angry about something, and when someone says: “Why are you angry?” we reply with bristling hostility: “I’m not angry!” We fail to recognize what others can plainly see. And denial, no matter how one looks at it, is a form of inner deceit.

Another dishonest defense is rationalization. We are guilty of this whenever we persuade ourselves that something is what it is not. C. S. Lewis points out that when our neighbor does something wrong, it is obviously because he or she is “bad,” while if we do something wrong it is only because we did not get enough sleep, or someone gave us a rough time, or our blood chemistry is at fault, and so on.

All of these defense mechanisms deprive us of inner honesty, and apart from hindering our spiritual growth they also lower our defenses against Satan. This is why over and over again in Scripture, we are bidden to open up to honesty. The more honest we can be, the more spiritually powerful and effective we can be.

Prayer     

Lord Jesus, help me open up to honesty. For I see that the more honest I am, the more authority I can wield over Satan. I want to be able to say, as You said: “The ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over Me” (Jn 14:30). I ask for Your name’s sake. Amen.
