Could I share with you all the thoughts that run through my mind? Would you hear me and know me better if you could see the murder, the depravity that wells up inside of me on a daily basis. I think not. I lead worship and pray with men. I am overcome by God’s presence and His power in my life. I talk with Him, hear His voice, walk with Him through my days. But still fail and struggle and wrestle and whine and pout and ….
Satan whispers in my ear, shouts to my heart, “You are a loser. You will never matter. Your life does not and will not make a difference to anyone. When you die, you will simply disappear and no one will mourn your passing or notice your absence.” He goes on for a while and I’ll not bore you with all that he says. But understand, it is a lie.
Does he say things like this to you? Does his voice of condemnation crush you with its lying truths? Do you see in yourself the hopelessness of your life and know that you have failed.
Good. We all need to be humbled from time to time.
Now, stand up. Put on your armor. Lift up your sword. Shout out this battle cry.
“I AM A SAINT!!!”
“GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD”
We are His children, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. We are not condemned for our sins were paid for on the cross of Jesus Christ. We stand covered by His blood, washed clean, filled with the Holy Spirit. Warriors of the cross that live victorious who overcome the evil one by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. This is truth. This is the reality that cannot be removed or shaken by anything other than our unwillingness to believe it.
I AM A SAINT
