Oh, the Lies!

1 Timothy 3:11-16

Satan loves to reach into his bag of dirty tricks and whisper lies in the ear of every Christ follower. The enemy comes only “to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10:10a). He wants to steal the joy and assurance of God’s love. His lies are many: “You haven’t done enough,” “What you have done isn’t good enough,” “She would have done it better,” or “He would have gotten better results.”

We must refuse the lies and realize just as the scalpel isn’t judged for the success of the surgeon’s surgery, we are not judged by the results that only God can bring about. Our sole responsibility is simply to be an instrument in God’s hand. To go where He directs. To speak when He leads. To do what He asks of us.

Our excellent standing with the Lord and His great assurance comes from obedience–not from the results we think we should produce. Only God can produce fruit. Leave the results with God, choose obedience, and experience His assurance deep within.
