All fiery darts are lies! They are designed to disrupt our minds, derail our walk of faith, and lure us to act independently of God. If we allow them to penetrate, then they become an internal stronghold that resists God’s word.
His word is designed to pull down strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:4) but the fiery darts are designed to penetrate and set up strongholds that will continually resist us from receiving the truth of God’s word.
Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 62:5 says, “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.” Note how both verses take our focus directly to the Lord. He alone has true control over everyone’s life.
The lies that we have believed can control us emotionally, which carries over into the spiritual and physical aspect of our lives. They may seem more real than the truth of God’s word. because we have not yet embraced them.
I know this was so true in my own life. I learned in 1993 that not all my thoughts were of my own origin. That set me on a delightful journey of inner deliverances that set me free through experiential truth.
Lies are noisy. They fight and scream for real estate in our thoughts. They want to push in and take over! They are designed to thwart our view of God’s perspective given to us in His word.
