“Our worship of idols on the hills and our religious orgies on the mountains are a delusion. Only in the Lord our God will Israel ever find salvation.” Jeremiah 3:23
Sin is always a delusion. Satan is the master of delusion. He wants us to live in a fantasy world that he wants to create. If we are to have spiritual growth and healing, we must face reality. The art of delusion is Satan’s way, but grounding people in reality is the way of God.
Satan’s most powerful weapon against mankind is delusion. In this way, he can work on our minds and we will never even know what he is doing. By sending delusions, he can build strongholds that we don’t even know he has on us.
Life can only be lived to the fullness and in a way that brings us deep satisfaction when we are able to see things as they really are. Those who live in fantasy worlds of their own making, or of the devil’s making, do not cope well in the real world. They cannot cope well in the spiritual world either, because they do not have the mental tools to interact lovingly and intelligently.
If we are to grow and become closer to Jesus, we must live in the real world. Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be.
