Jesus said of Satan, “He was a murderer from the beginning, and 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).
Satan is a clever liar because his lies sound so much like the truth. He wants to change your thought processes in order to deceive you and destroy you. He is not only the father of lies, but he lies about the biggest subject—God.
If Satan can get you thinking wrong about God—if he can deceive you into thinking God is something He isn’t—he has you in everything else. He becomes the master of your life when you allow his deceptions to infiltrate your thoughts.
Prepare yourself for battle. Take captive every thought to make sure it in accordance with God’s Truth. Second Corinthians 10:3-6 says, “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.”
