David said he was a worm (Psalm 22:6).
Peter said he was a sinful man (Luke 5:8).
Isaiah, being in the presence of God, utterly recognized that he was a man of unclean lips (Isaiah 6:5).
Paul declared, I am the worst (chief) of sinners (1 Timothy 1:15).
And Jesus, our greatest example of humbleness, made himself of no reputation and took on the form of a servant (Philippians 2:7).
Yet, here is the world coming along singing, tweeting, posting and saying, 'you’re enough.'
Careful. Satan will make his lies sound catchy in songs, easy to remember when spoken, and likable when re-posted. At first, it may not taste like poison. But it is.
The Word of God combats this lie. It humbles us without humiliating us. It tells me, I am nothing without God.
This is where true life begins. When you die to self. Not when you embrace the deception that you have what it takes. Without God, you and I would not even be alive, physically, let alone be able to experience real life, spiritually! I can't face a day on my own let alone a lifetime!
Men and women, don't believe these slogans and feel-good declarations just because they sound good. Don't take them as fact just because it comes from someone who has over 50 million followers. And by all means, if you proclaim to be a child of the King, I urge you as your brother in Christ Jesus, do not share or spread their content.
Hide this word in your heart: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect (Romans 12:2).
