When I was in college, a group of my friends and I went on a weekend retreat. I was canoeing with a friend who was deathly afraid of water because he didn’t know how to swim. His canoe tipped and even though he was wearing a life jacket, he panicked. As I tried to give him reassurance that he would not drown on my watch, I stuck my paddle in the water and discovered that although it was murky, it was only waist deep. Stifling my laughter, I shouted out, “Darryl, stand up!”
Darryl was battling a lie, but as long as he thought it was the truth, he struggled. Once he realized the truth, Darryl overcame his fear and won his war.
[…] When an enemy is outnumbered and out-armed, his best weapon is deception! The devil is both defeated and disarmed, but he still wins victories in our lives through his cunning use of deception.
