Blessings to everyone that is reading this sermon lesson today. I pray that God will move mightily and unearth every seed of deception of Satan in the lives of every reader. Points I want you to ponder as the Lord is bringing about massive changes in your lives and bringing you into your destiny, is that you have to deal with the adversary or "accuser of the brethren."
The Bible tells us in Zechariah 3:1-5 verses that Joshua stood before the Angel of the Lord and the Devil also stood on his right side (opposing him).
The Devil accused Joshua and so will he accuse you! He will remind you of your failures, your mistakes and reasons why you are not worthy to move forward and fulfill God's purpose for your life but I want you to be encouraged today because it doesn't matter what the Devil is speaking against you, what you are saying to yourself or what others are saying about you, you are under construction!
You are under construction and God has a greater purpose and plan for your life that far exceeds what you are seeing around you. It doesn't matter that your "garments are filthy" because you can come to Jesus just as you are, humbly and repentant and he will change and transform your life (v 4).
You are like a building that is under construction. The building may have a plethora of issues and appears as if it is of no use until construction workers work diligently on that building to rectify an array of issues.
As you are under construction, God is doing likewise with you. He is working out any attitudes, sins, habits or other issues that may hinder you in life and most importantly from moving forward in God and living a life that is surrendered to him.
You may look ugly right now and people may see you as "undesirable" but I am so glad that "God does not see as man sees" (I Samuel 16:7, NKJV). God is working on you, surrender to his shaping process (Jeremiah 18:1-6, ESV)." For when he finishes his great work in you, you will come out much better than when you went in (Hebrews 12:11, NIV)."
