Overcoming The Enemy of Self-Doubt
Have You Ever Doubted The Impact Of Your Life?
Remember the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life”? The lead character played by Jimmy Stewart, is shown by an angel what life would have been like with his family, friends and community had he never been born. The tragic events he was shown shook him to the core and he begged for a second chance at life and making a difference.
As Christians, because we are in a battle for reaching people with the Gospel, Satan continually attacks our confidence, our influence, and of course our self portrait…the way we see and believe about our self.
Scripture tells us “if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation, old things have past away, all things have become new.”. (2 Cor 5:17) The old saying is TRUE… “God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called”. As Christians, we represent God on the Earth!
Never allow Satan to convince you that your words…your ideas you’re your influence are not making an eternal difference in the lives of thousands. Yes, I mean that number literally.
6 Reasons Satan Lies To You About Your Life Impact
1. It Destroys Your Motivation.
When your motivation is destroyed, you never get out of the boat to walk on the water. If Satan strips you of your motivation, he has paralyzed your impact on others and your own receiving from God.
2. Seeds of Doubt Are Planted In Your Heart Which Can Spread To Every Other Area of Your Faith.
Doubt is extremely contagious. That’s why EVERY DAY we need to LISTEN to the Bible. Listen is different than reading. “…Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. “ (Rom 10:17) Your faith grows every time you hear God talk!
3. It Creates The Belief You Have No Purpose In Your Life.
All Christians have been saved for a purpose. Every individual Christian has a unique life assignment from God to fulfill! If you believe the lie you are not making a difference, you will stop trying or never even start. Your words, and actions impact!
4. Frustration Paralyzes Your Potential.
The enemy knows if you don’t live in the calling God has placed on your life, you cannot experience the peace and joy that comes from sharing God’s Word with those around you. Joy is released when we obey God’s command to reach out to others! Its addicting!
5. Satan Knows If He Can Silence Your Witness, He Has Silenced The Witness Of Those You Would Have Led To Christ.
Satan knows very well the gospel is spread through multiplication! .
6. It Guarantees No One Will Look To You As A Mentor And Reach More By Modeling After Your Life.
Somebody you don’t see…is watching how you treat somebody you can see! When you and I allow doubt about our calling, or “our worthiness” to be used by God, we will stop impacting others.
