The thiefs objective is to steal, kill and destroy. My objective is to present life in all its fullness John 10:10
Lately I spoke to somebody with a nasty tone of voice. I didnt even discover what I seemed like. However God did. Later whereas I used to be studying a devotional e book, the Holy Spirit jogged my memory that Devil is the accuser and requested me if I actually needed to be on his staff?
Properly, no, I certain didnt. So I instantly apologized to the Lord and the particular person I accused. I might have communicated in a extra constructive method. I didnt must accuse. I might have merely said how I felt about what occurred.
Whereas I used to be reflecting on that thought, I remembered a non secular idea that helped me lots in the course of the years. How do you differentiate between the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the accusations of the Enemy? Here’s what I realized:
The Holy Spirit convicts us of particular actions or attitudes that must be confessed. Once we admit and confess it (1 John 1:9) we expertise Gods forgiveness and He is not going to convey that particular sin to our consideration once more. The Enemy, then again, will make us really feel responsible. (Normally a obscure sense of guilt – not particular.) He’ll inform us that we are not any good and that we’ll by no means be forgiven.
We are able to select whom we take heed to and imagine. Will or not it’s God or Devil? God loves us and has an exquisite plan for us. The Enemy hates us and has a horrible plan for our lives.
Hearken to Jesus. He speaks phrases of life.
Lord Jesus, how usually we’re fooled by the enemy and take heed to his accusations, fairly than to Your phrases of Life. We wish to be like You, Jesus. We wish to communicate phrases of Life into peoples lives. Thanks for serving to us. Amen.
