Do you ever doubt God?
Maybe you doubt His goodness?
Maybe you doubt His ability to come through?
Maybe you have doubts about who He is?
Maybe you doubt that He really loves you?
Doubt is an attack
What I want you to see is that this is a very strategic move on behalf of our enemy. He tries to get you to believe all sorts of lies about God so that you don’t trust Him and eventually walk away from Him. Or if you are not walking with Christ, then our enemy will find ways for you to never consider who He is.
Romans 1:25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
Adam and Eve did this. Satan was able to twist the truth so much that they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped themselves, the creature, instead of their creator God. They believe that God wasn’t good and that He was just holding out on them. And they believed they could be more apart from God.
Our enemy is very Good at this.
Truths that our enemy will attack
- The truth that God exists.
- We have evidence of God all around us. This is how Paul says it in Romans 1:19-20, “For what can be known about God is plain to them because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
- The truth about scripture.
- These, however, are not humans thoughts on sheets of paper. They are the very words of God. Paul states it this way in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,“
- The truth about who we are.
- Our enemy will try to get us to believe that there is not hope for us and that God doesn’t love us. But scripture tells us the opposite in Ephesians 1:4, “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.”
- The truth about Jesus.
- Our hope is in Jesus and the enemy knows this, so he will do everything in his power to get us to reject and not believe in Jesus. But there is no other way and so we should guard this truth. John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
