It's a Lie!

Yesterday we talked about King Nebs desire to change the destiny of the captives from the tribe of Judah. In part he tried to succeed by changing their names. He had hoped that it would change who they were. Apparently they were pretty successful because if you remember in the reading there were a lot more young men beside our 4 that were taken. So it worked with everyone else but not for Daniel and his three buddies.

Sweet sister, Satan is alive and well today and wants to fundamentally change who we are. Let me say that again so that it sinks in. Satan is alive and well today. He wants to fundamentally change whose we are. He will do that anyway he can. Satan is the great deceiver and he tells us lies about who we are. This is what Satan tells us.
1. You are so stupid, you will never amount to anything
2. You are so ugly, you need face paint to look beautiful
3. You are so fat, so dumb and you will never, ever be good enough

All of these are just some of the lies Satan tells us. Don't believe the lies sister. We were made in the image of our Father. We are daughters of the King. Our value does not depend on what the world values. Our value is given from the King of the Universe. We are precious in his sight.

Daniel and his three buddies knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, whose they were. Changing their names to pagan gods would not change who they really were. These four did not believe the lies that were being told. God was right there with them.

Don't believe the lies my precious sister. You are valuable beyond measure because you are the daughter of the King.

Till tomorrow.
In Christ Alone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
