-Accuser-

“...no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you.” Isaiah 54:17

Ice-Breaker:

• What is your first memory of feeling guilty as a kid?

Questions:

  • What do you think the devil wants you to believe about God?
  • Read Revelation 12:10.
    • Talk about the difference you’ve experienced between Satan’s accusations and the Holy Spirit’s conviction.
    • What are some examples of accusations you hear in your mind? How might these accusations affect you?
  • Read Zechariah 3:1-7. Pastor Bryan told the story of Joshua receiving new clothes in place of filthy ones. What has God done in your life that is similar to this?
  • Read II Corinthians 10:3-5. Paul says there are enemy thoughts in your mind that you need to take captive. What do you do when you feel accused by the enemy? What doesn’t work? What helps you?
  • Read 1 John 2:1 and really let it sink in. Do you live like Jesus is your advocate pleading your case? How could this change the conversations in your head

Application:

• Review the Scriptures listed. What biblical truth(s) do you need to memorize to destroy the regular accusations you hear?
