Rom. 1:25 Instead of believing what they knew was true about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they worshiped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever. Amen.
It's all about the choices we make. We choose to either believe God or we choose to believe the lies of Satan. There is no other option. We either believe God or we believe what Satan says. Period.
God has made it very clear in creation, His Word, and the lives of His children that what He says is absolute truth. Choosing to not believe it does not change it. God gives us the freedom of choice and when one deliberately chooses to believe in Satan's lies, he falls quickly into a very deep sin pit. Instead of worshiping God, he worships the things God has created or provided for him. Believing lies, he lives without hope beyond what this world has to offer. He forever searches for peace that never comes. He never finds satisfaction that his soul needs and craves.
There is no room in the soul for anyone but God. He will not tolerate a crowded soul. We either let Him live in us and rule us, or we let sin invade and infest the soul and keep us away from God. God will not stay where He is not wanted. And, God will not stay when He is treated as a second-class citizen, one who really is not important to us.
Satan wants us to believe that God doesn't have to be the all consuming presence in our lives. He wants us to believe that there is room in our souls for God and the world. He wants us to believe that God is not a jealous god and that He will put up with our divided loyalties. Satan is a liar. God will not be mocked. He is either our Lord and Savior or He isn't. If He is, then He will have rule over all our soul and not just what we want to give Him.
