Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do… When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44
One thing I got to appreciate and understand when I was single was the statement made by Jesus that “the devil is a liar” (John 8:44). Unfortunately, because he is so cunning in his ways, quite a number of singles have fallen for his lies. Here are three lies I discovered Satan wants you and every person who is single and unmarried to believe:
LIE #1: YOUR LIFE WOULD BE SO MUCH MORE FUN AND FULFILLING IF ONLY YOU WERE MARRIED: Marriage is good, marriage is of God, marriage is something to be desired, but marriage or anything else under the sun, can’t satisfy and fill the hearts longing for fulfillment. If you want to meet a person who believed he could find fun and fulfillment from relationships, ask King Solomon.
Solomon at some point in his life must have felt a kind of emptiness in his heart. He knew something was missing in his life, but he didn’t know what it was. So he embarked on a long journey of discovery; a journey to discover what or who could fill the void in his heart and bring him true fulfillment.
He started with knowledge. But this was what he discovered at the end of his pursuit for knowledge, “For with much knowledge comes much sorrow, the more knowledge, the more grief” Ecclesiastes 1:18.
When acquisition of knowledge did not do the trick, he moved on to wealth and riches. Hear what he had to say about wealth, “whoever loves money never has money enough, whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless” Ecclesiastes 2:11.
Solomon, the richest man on the surface of the earth in his time, discovered that no one can acquire enough possessions or have a relationship with someone however close that can fill an empty life or give lasting joy and fulfillment.
Your worth, significance and fulfillment in life comes from a deep and real connection to Jesus Christ and not to any person or material things.
This was why Solomon could declare after having 700 wives and 300 concubines that “here is the conclusion of the matter, fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man” Ecclesiastes 12:13. Reject this lie or you will end up with a lot of pain and disappointment in this life. To be continued. God bless you.
