Do you have a heart for the Lord's work? Is there a burning desire to touch others with the transforming gospel of Christ? Following on the steps of submission are Satan's verbal attacks of discouragement. Have you recognized his voice, his words of accusation? "You can't do anything that really matters! Nobody will listen to YOU! Look at all of the times you failed God!" He used all his weapons earlier to block your salvation. If that failed and you personally trusted in Jesus as Lord and Savior he now has determination to block your witness for the Lord!
Remember, the devil is the father of lies; but he mixes truth with error. In his temptations to Jesus in the wilderness he quoted the truth of God's written word; but he distorted it.
So if he says you can't do the work of the Lord, it is both true and false. In your own strength you can do nothing of eternal value. (John 15:5b) Without Christ we are nothing! Satan hides or distorts the whole truth. "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13 NKJ)." His will and work are waiting to be fulfilled. He is waiting until we become available. That is His good pleasure. Is it yours?
