•Satan’s lie: Your life has no purpose
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 NIV
•Satan’s lie: Your sin is too great, God will never forgive you.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9 NIV
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:1 NIV
•Satan’s Lie: No one will ever love you.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39 NIV
•Satan’s Lie: You will never overcome this struggle
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
•Satan’s Lie: God will never accept you
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
Ephesians 1:13-14 NIV
Pray for strength when confronted by fear
They were all trying to frighten us, thinking, “Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed.” But I prayed, “Now strengthen my hands.”
Nehemiah 6:9 NIV
You do not need to battle fear on your own. Pray and ask God to strengthen you. He will hear your prayer and give you what you need.
Discern trickery from the world and supposed friends
One day I went to the house of Shemaiah son of Delaiah, the son of Mehetabel, who was shut in at his home. He said, “Let us meet in the house of God, inside the temple, and let us close the temple doors, because men are coming to kill you—by night they are coming to kill you.” But I said, “Should a man like me run away? Or should someone like me go into the temple to save his life? I will not go!” I realized that God had not sent him, but that he had prophesied against me because Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him. He had been hired to intimidate me so that I would commit a sin by doing this, and then they would give me a bad name to discredit me.
Nehemiah 6:10-13 NIV
我到了米希大别的孙子、第来雅的儿子示玛雅家里；那时，他闭门不出。他说：“我们不如在神的殿里会面，将殿门关锁；因为他们要来杀你，就是夜里来杀你。”我说：“像我这样的人岂要逃跑呢？像我这样的人岂能进入殿里保全生命呢？我不进去！” 我看明 神没有差遣他，是他自己说这话攻击我，是多比雅和参巴拉贿买了他。贿买他的缘故，是要叫我惧怕，依从他犯罪，他们好传扬恶言毁谤我。
Ask God for discernment to distinguish between truth and error. Take every decision to God and do things God’s way. Nehemiah knew that he should not go into the holy temple; he rejected his friends’ false advice and followed God’s way and, in the end, it saved him.
