12 – Perfect Government
16 – The Love of God

Job 12:16 (NKJV) – With Him are strength and prudence. The deceived and the deceiver are His.

The Father has all authority in heaven, on earth and in hell. He is perfect in all His ways, holy and sovereign. When you uncover deception in your own life, do not feel defeated! Trust that the same Lord who knows you knows your deceiver, too.

God is just. You can bank on Jesus bringing restitution back to you, my friend! There is no doubt that He will work things out for your good. Pray for those who despitefully use you because vengeance belongs to the Lord!

Declaration: The love of God brings healing and truth against any deception that has caused strife or bondage in my life. Lord, if I am holding a grudge against my deceiver, help me to release them to You because You have authority over them. Your timing is perfect. Your will is perfect. In Your perfect love You created me, and I belong to You! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
People that are deceived don’t know that they’re deceived. That’s why the word of God is absolutely essential to the life of a believer. Jesus is the way, the TRUTH, and the life. He is the Word of God made flesh. We have to have the Word as part of our lives on a daily basis. The darker and darker this world gets, the easier and easier it will become to be deceived. The Bible warns those of us living in these last days, Do Not Be Deceived.

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. – Ephesians 5:6 (NKJV) Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”– 1 Corinthians 15:33 (NKJV) 

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. – 1 John 3:7-8 (NKJV) 

Like King Jesus, you and I are here to destroy the works of the devil. We can’t do that if we’re caught up in the false theology and doctrines of demons. Our compass, our “north star” is the word of God. Do not get away from His word! Make it a treasure of your life because in the end, His word remains, and it will accomplish that which He sent it out to do!  

Stand on the Word, pray the Word, memorize the Word. Keep it in your heart so that deception has no place to land! Be brave, my friends! We were made for such a time as this.
