Years ago I was the accounting manager for a company with 13 corporations. When I came on board, the CPA helped me whittle it down to five. I knew everything about the money end of the company. I was a voice of truth that the enemy tried desperately to quench.
One day I was at work when I suddenly had a severe sore throat. It kept getting worse. Every swallow felt like knives. I finally took off early and went to my Christian doctor. He checked my throat really well. Sat down and said: Marilyn. There is nothing wrong with your throat. There is no redness or swelling. You have a lying symptom. I stared at him. My throat really hurt!
I learned a great lesson that day about how to shake off lying symptoms. Back to yesterday. According to what the Holy Spirit showed me, my friend’s apathy is a lying symptom. Apathy means: lack of interest, enthusiasm, concern; disinterest.
John 10:10 explained lying symptoms as, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” What is our heritage? The verse says, “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
The Strong’s definition for abundantly is: superabundance, excessive, overflowing, surplus, over and above, more than enough, profuse, extraordinary, above the ordinary, more than sufficient. 2 Peter 1:4 says, “By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature…”
Our faith is constantly under attack ~ barraged with fiery dart lies. We are to stand steadfast behind our door shield of faith ~ believing God’s word. When His truth gets into our heart it will set us free and keep us free!
