Satan doesn’t tell you a blatant lie. You are too smart for that. Instead, he tells you a half-truth and then exaggerates it.
To exaggerate your pain, he tells you there is no relief.
To exaggerate your challenge, he tells you it is hopeless.
To exaggerate your weaknesses, he tells you that you have no strengths.
To exaggerate your sin, he tells you that you’re beyond salvation.
The devil has a tail and it is called exaggeration. It follows every “truth” he says and turns it into a lie.
So how do you deal with a tail? Cut it.
Don’t dialogue with him. Don’t converse with him. Don’t linger in his lies.
Cut his “tail” early and live free!
