Friday Bulletin13: BELIEVING GOD

BELIEVING GOD

Peter G. Mkolesia
______________________________________________________________________
SIX STEPS OF SEPARATION 2
STEP 1. DOUBTING GOD’S GOODNESS, WISDOM, AND PERFECTION OF HIS INTENTIONS TOWARD US.
_____________________________________________________________________
STEP 2. BELIEVING THAT WE NEED MORE THAN GOD AND WHAT HE HAS PROVIDED TO SATISFY, SUSTAIN, AND SECURE OUR LIVES.

That was the essence of the message the enemy sent Eve. “To continue to be completely loyal to God will result in your life being less than it could be, in fact less than it should be. What he permitted is not only manipulatively restrictive, it just plain isn’t enough. Your life could be richer, more satisfying, and more complete if you were not bound by loyalty to him and his rules”.

Stepping across the line of love and loyalty to God for these reasons is a temptation that is almost more than we can resist. Satan stands like an auctioneer, mesmerizing us with his call to have what he offers, to have more than God has permitted. But, like Eve, every time we step across the line and reach for the forbidden fruit, we lose. We lose intimacy with God, peace of mind, a clean conscience, and confidence in ourselves to know and to do what is right.
