The Father of Lies by Pastor Ed Young
Praise God. It is so wonderful. Nothing is wrong. Everything is A-OK.” That is a bunch of junk. No one has that attitude. But we did say, “God, we are not going to blame You. We are not going to point the finger of accusation at You. We are going to accept it because we know that You are allowing this, not causing this, allowing this to happen to mold us and to make us into stronger people for You.” God has taught me more when I am flat on my face then when I am riding high.
He works that way. Because we are hard headed and stubborn, we play the Blame Game with God.
We also play it with ourselves. You see, our favorite person to play the Blame Game with is someone who is quite sunburned, has slicked back hair and little horns. His name is D. Evil. And D. Evil will sit down with us and will play the Blame Game with us. He points that bony, sunburned finger in our face and says something like this. “You don’t deserve to be used by God. You don’t deserve to be in relationship with God. You don’t deserve to be married to this person. You don’t deserve to have this family. You don’t deserve to have this job. You don’t deserve…. You don’t deserve… The Bible says these words in John 8:44. “…He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language (Lioneese), for he is a liar and the father of lies.” Revelation 12:10.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fellowship Church Grapevine
