If you feel under a cloud of accusation right now you are surely under demonic attack. Scripture tells us that part of Satan’s job description is the “accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night.” (Revelation 12:10) Johnny-on-the-spot to amplify our every fault, Satan hurls abuse at us constantly.
How do you know if this is happening to you? Do you feel guilty all the time? Do you constantly feel you aren’t good enough for God’s love? Do your sins seem larger than God’s grace? Does it feel like there is a dark cloud around you and the sunshine can’t seem to break through? And on top of it all, do you somehow feel that this is YOUR fault? You’re not alone; I’ve been through this myself.
There are ways to break free. First, affirm the truth and reject the accuser’s lies. Jesus said; “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) Go ahead and say it out loud. You are one of the “they” that Jesus was talking about and you are one of the “they” that is going to live more abundantly – starting now.
Hear what God says; “For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4) And this; “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) What chance does any demon have with God on your side? Turn a deaf ear to the lies of the accuser. Determine to only listen up to God!
