In Isaiah 36, Sennacherib king of Assyria came to attack God’s people and gave intimidating threats by lying to them.
“Do not let Hezekiah mislead you when he says, ‘The Lord will deliver us.’ Have the gods of any nations ever delivered their lands from the hand of the king of Assyria? (Isaiah 36:18 NIV)
Sennacherib is much like satan’s character. satan is always trying to make believers lose faith by telling them lies. He brings discouraging thoughts like, “God won’t help you,” “God doesn’t love you,” or “Things will never change.”
Choose to believe the Word of God instead of the devil’s lies!
When we submit to God’s ways and resist the devil, he has no choice but to leave us alone.
John 8:44 NIV
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
