Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
I dont know if you feel this way or not but I do. It seems that I constantly feel like I am not good enough. I always feel inadequate. I get these feelings that God doesn’t want to use me, etc. I fear doing what I know that I am called to do and what I am trained to do.
I wonder if everyone else can see me like I see me. I have strong desires to run and hide. All this happens when it is time for me to do something special for the Lord. It is when it is time to preach.
It happens this morning as I think about going to preach to a really good church, wonderful pastor and group of people here in California.
I don’t pray enough. I don’t have the right message. I am not going to help these people. The pastor is going to be sorry that he invited me.
I have no idea if this goes on in your head but it does in mine. I believe this verse explains what is happening. It is spiritual warfare. It is an attack from our accuser. I stand accused.
When this happens I have to stop, pray, but more than anything I have to get my thoughts under control. I have to bring them into captivity to the Lord Jesus.I have to realize that He loves me. He called me. He prepared me. He opened the door for me to be here. He must have plans for me.
I have to remember that if I dwell on these thoughts I am being selfish, sinful, carnal, prideful, etc. I have to realize that I am just His servant and go out and do the best I can and wait on Him to work in and through me to do His will.
I want you to know that we stand accused but more than that we are accepted in the beloved. God wants to use me. I am His and He is mine.
Are my clothes right? Do I stand right, walk right? Oh well, there it goes.Anything the devil can bring to mind to get me off of focusing on the Lord Jesus, who He is, what He has done, and what He is doing!
