Lord, we are often tempted - tempted to forget all about You.
The pull towards self-centred living is so strong.
- We think that we can go it alone.
- We think that we don't need You.
- We think that can manage all right without You.
Where does this kind of thinking come from?
Does it come from You? - To ask the question is to give the answer.
You would never make us think like that!
This kind of thinking must come from somewhere else - from someone else.
It can only come from Satan - the devil.
He's the one wants us to forget all about You.
Lord, You are "our Father" (Matthew 6:9).
Satan is very different. He's "the father of lies" (John 8:44).
Lord, help us to stop listening to Satan - and to start listening to You.
