Every day the Enemy lies to people, trying to distract them from their calling.
He tells Ministers they aren’t worthy of teaching the Bible because they aren’t perfect.He tells mothers they are doing a horrible job and their kids will suffer for their mistakes.He tells men they have to be at the top of the corporate ladder making six-figure salaries, even if it means never seeing their families. Thus neglecting the home for any ungodly actions to filter in the family structure. He tells teenagers that their parents’ faith is meaningless and to abandon it if they want to really experience the life they are meant to live. He also offers them an opportunity to walk through the cracks to experience life in the real world. And he most likely tells you a lie that you believe. Yes brethren that everything is alright, you need to rest after a hard days work. Let the children enjoy the evening out so they will understand what life is like on the outside. Guess what? You fall for the lies of the enemy.
But God reminds us that He offers us life — a rich, full, abundant life — free from striving for our own sense of perfection, a life resting in the assurance that we are already perfect because of the work He has done on the cross. Hallelujah, what a Saviour. I urge you this morning to consider the things that God has offered unto us and take without questioning Him. If He promises it, believe that He will bring it to pass. God bless and keep you beloved.
