Have you ever felt like you are just not good enough and no matter how hard you try you keep failing? Especially in your relationship with the Lord. I think we have all been there and sometimes it can really beat you up! If you seek the Lord then you have definitely come under this attack.
You need to understand that these thoughts and their associated feelings do not come from the Lord. They do not come from the Holy Spirit either. They come from the religious idea that you have to perform certain duties and functions in order to please God. If this were true, none of us would ever be pleasing to the Lord. Look at the following Scripture;
Romans 8:15 And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough! But you have received the “Spirit of Full Acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. (TPT)
Here is the good news – the Gospel of Jesus Christ – He died and shed His blood for you so that you NEVER HAVE TO FEEL UNWORTHY OR UNACCEPTABLE before Him again. Never ever! To top it all and to make certain that you know you are acceptable to God, He sent the Holy Spirit to move in with you and to help you know that you are fully and perfectly acceptable to Him as His child. From his eternal perspective, you are NOW and ALWAYS His beloved, one and only, perfect child.
When you accepted Jesus Christ, God’s Son, as your Lord and Saviour through believing in His death and resurrection, He took you into His arms, cleaned you up, gave you His perfect righteousness, made you completely holy and calls you “A SAINT!” To God you are a MOST HOLY ONE.
The devil and the world obviously don’t see you that way and will try and convince you otherwise. They must otherwise they lose control over you! I ask you, why would you want them to have control over you? When you look into the loving eyes of your Father and accept the fact that you are FULLY ACCEPTABLE to Him in every way, nothing in the entire universe will be able to stop the wonderful plans and abundant life that He has promised you.
God’s most high SAINT, have a wonderful day. 😊
