The enemy of your soul speaks words filled with guilt—shame—condemnation. “Who do you think you are? I knew you when… You must be resolved and happy in your small constricting pot. It’s about humility. Remember your failures? They define you. It’s wrong to believe that being forgiven releases you from your dreary past. Oh, no! If you are truly a humble Christian you must never—never—never forget your sins…your failures!”
The devil’s bait gives an appearance of pious humility
But the truth
“He has removed our sins from us as far as the east is from the west.”
If you have received Christ as your Lord and Savior you are washed from your sins. You have been bought with His priceless blood shed on Calvary’s Hill—for you! You are not a beggar showing other beggars where the bread is. You are His precious child. You can run to Him at any time, for any reason—great or small, happy or sad. Always His arms are outstretched toward you!
Satan’s list is exhaustive. His ambition is to keep you in your small pot with your small dreams and small thoughts. If you want to ride on the high places with your King, you have to come as a child before Him. Simply believe that His truth is the only truth. Come out of your pot and start living like the woman He sees…the woman He says you are.
“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14)
“The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.” (Psalm 45:13)
Dear Lord, I will run to the beat of your Word. Give me a dream…a purpose. I will pursue with all that’s in me. No turning back!
