from You Version
Lie #1: Satan Is Too Strong 

“Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies” (Rom. 8:33). Through Jesus’ finished work on the cross, satan (the enemy) has been defeated. His only remaining methods of attack involve influencing our broken world through lies and deceit. When faced with these temptations, remember that you’re fighting from victory, not for victory! 

Lie #2: You Are Too Broken

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Rom. 8:37). Yes, we have sinned and messed up a lot. However, as a Christians, our identity has been changed from sinner to saint (Eph. 2:19). When God sees you, He does not see your shortcomings, He sees the victory of His Son! 

Lie #3: God Is Too Angry

“Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 8:38-39). All of God’s wrath was poured out on Jesus at the cross (1 Thess. 5:9). This reality doesn’t give us license to sin, but it does give us confidence to walk in purity! 

Big Idea

God’s love will never leave you, but the enemy will try to convince you otherwise through these lies: 1. Satan is too strong; 2. You are too broken; 3. God is too angry.


Question #1: What is one thing that “jumped out” to you while reading Romans 8:31-39? 

Question #2: Which of the three lies (satan is too strong, you are too broken and God is too angry) resonated the most with you? 

Question #3: Identify a lie that the enemy is attempting to deceive you with. How does the truth, as revealed in the Bible, contradict this lie?
