Hello Everyone,

False accusations. There is nothing worse than feeling falsely accused. In the courtrooms of our everyday lives we would never accept any accusations that falsely accused us of something we did not do. We would take up arms and defend our positions like a fearless warrior chanting victory ahead of the battle.

Yet the Bible tells us we have an enemy who hurls false accusations at us every day. These false accusations are fuelled with malicious lies and fired at us as missiles of destruction. Revelation 12:10 tells us that the enemy of our souls accuses us day and night before God. To throw us off his own stench, the accuser sugar coats these false accusations with words that appear to have a hint of truth; words that the enemy uses to hook into thoughts we have about ourselves that may have been shaped by brokenness or faulty self-beliefs that were shaped in our formative years. The enemy camps on any opportunity where we are vulnerable and becomes a persuasive orator when falsely accusing us. Some of the enemy’s false accusations include us being unworthy, inadequate, unlovable, never measuring up, being guilty, never being able to please God, being unacceptable, undesirable, deserving of the rejections we experience, that perhaps God loves others more than us; false accusations that roll on and on, creating spiritual scar tissue from all the cuts and abrasions of his vile false accusations, intended to dislocate us from the truth. Notice the pattern? Nothing that brings life; only false accusations designed for our destruction. Bit of a backdoor bandit if you ask me.

Lisa Bevere, recently shared a quote that said, “if you feel you are inadequate, worthless or not enough, you didn’t get that idea from God.”[1] As we stand in the courtroom of God, we see that these false accusations have been thrown out by the ultimate Judge. The case was settled when we entered into relationship with Jesus. God debunks the lies by setting us free as a final act in the drama of our salvation. He declares we are enough and nothing we do or don’t do can make us more or less acceptable to God. How about being described as the apple of God’s eye? Not only is there NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, He has discharged us from everything we were ever guilty of and every future offense as well (Romans 8:1-2). The most powerful Judge in the universe declares me worthy, acceptable, loved, forgiven, adequate, and completely stamped with His approval. On top of this God gives us weapons of the Spirit that we can fight with “against the principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12). God speaks truth and we must fine-tune our spiritual ears to listen to His declarations above all others. It is not God who falsely accuses us; it is God’s enemy; but his days are numbered.

So, friends, get your “truth” on today.

Best days to come
