(The Single Woman Series)
Dear Daughter of God, it is very important that you know the truth about yourself, your worth, life in general, love relationships and God’s will for all of that, in this age of deception. There is quite a lot of information available today, from various sources and even on social media but how much of it passes the litmus test of TRUTH?
The Bible says of our common enemy the devil, that one which is a deceiver, that he “abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.” (John 8:44) The Bible also states that this deceiver, whose plan is to steal, kill and destroy, roams the earth, looking for whom he may devour (John 10:10; 1 Peter 5:8).
Whereas Jesus desires for us to have life and to have it more abundantly, the enemy tries to steal, kill and destroy our faith in Jesus and hope of salvation, our joy, our peace, our dreams, our hopes, our vision, our ambitions and our success in the area of love relationships and family life.
When it comes to love relationships, through the tool of deception, he has succeeded in wreaking havoc in the lives of many women, by sending people to distract them, derail them, demotivate them and then leave them feeling dejected, depressed, devalued and despondent. Some women even died at the hands of the one they mistakenly thought had ‘loved’ them, all because they fell for the devil’s deception and aligned themselves with the wrong man, who was on a mission to break them, not build them.
Yet, for those who are still in the land of the living and especially for those who are still single in this season, there is hope! There is hope that you will use your God-given time wisely to accumulate as much truth as you can, so that you can make better choices about life in general and please God, the one who created you.
In John 8:32, Jesus said, “And ye shall know THE TRUTH, and THE TRUTH shall make you free.”
If the truth about life, love relationships and the purpose for your existence has the power to make you free, then this means that if you fall victim to deception, if you believe the devil’s lies, you will find yourself enslaved, in bondage and living a life that looks more like a nightmare, than the ‘happy ever after’ ending that you had hoped for so badly and envisioned.
Your hope and desire for a better life begins with Jesus Christ and he is the Lord of TRUTH. Where you may have believed lies therefore, your mind needs to be renewed and you need to begin to think like Christ, so that you can see life and relationships in the right light and with the right lens.
Think about it: What you believe will determine your whole future, including the path you will take and the choices you will make. It will determine the kind of person you will marry (if you do) and it also has the potential to determine the quality of the life that you and your children (if you have) will live. On the whole, what you believe will determine whether your life here on earth would have been a success or a failure.
Isn’t it important therefore for you to ensure that you believe and embrace the TRUTH?
