Accusing Yucky Puckies Hey Spot,Did you eat My Worm? No way Tiger, you know I wouldn’t touch Your Food! Ha, Tiger is accusing Spot of my evil deed!!
What is Accusation? To blame someone for something – anything – whether they did it or not! It makes you feel: 1. Sad 2. Guilty 3. Confused
What is the difference between conviction of sin and accusation? Conviction: 1. Comes from the word of God or by the Holy Spirit about something you are doing wrong. 2. It comes to your conscience like a tap on the shoulder. 3. It stops when you say you are sorry, turn around and obey God. Yes Father God, I am going to stop accusing other people.
Accusation yucky puckies try to act like God’s conviction, but they are not!!!! They nag at you and talk to you about the same things over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over….. AGAIN!!!!
Satan and his yucky pucky friends are our #1 problem Why? They want to separate us from: 1. God 2. Other people 3. Ourselves
Satan’s name means “Accuser” He and his yucky puckies are looking for any way they can, to tell you that you did something wrong! They want to find your weaknesses, your faults, your failures and then attack you when you are weak. You didn’t follow the directions! Now look! You never do anything right! You should have asked for help! You ruined the party!
You have to know the Word of God so that… You can recognize the yucky puckies of accusation. God can help you to know the difference between good and evil. And you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.(John 8:32) Oh no, not the Word of God!! I’m out of here!! You shall know the Truth…
Yucky Puckies tell us to accuse others! They want us to think the worst of others and to blame them for doing things wrong. The enemy has us look at their weaknesses and then wants us to think we are better than them.
Jesus was accused many times in His life. They watched Him, whether He would heal on the sabbath day.(Mark 3:2) They accused Jesus of saying that He was a King. Jesus said that His kingdom was not of this world. (Luke 23:1-9) You are guilty Jesus!
The Yucky Puckies of Accusation put Jesus on the cross! Jesus was accused and yet He never defended Himself, even though HE WAS and IS GOD!!! Jesus paid the price on the cross so that we can be free from accusation.
So, What do you do if you are accused of something? You have (2) choices: God’s way or … Yucky Pucky Ways What way will you choose??
Here is what the yucky puckies want you to do if you are accused… Accuse the person back Defend yourself Yell at them Never speak to them again It’s your fault! No, it’s your fault! It’s both of your faults!!!!!
This is what God would want you to do if you are accused… Ask God if you are guilty of what you have been accused of. If you are guilty, you tell God you are sorry, and that you don’t want to think this way anymore. If you are not guilty, you separate the person from their yucky puckies and then ask God to help you forgive them. Father God, I did say those mean things that Susie is accusing me of. Please forgive me. Father God, you know that I am not guilty of what Sam said about me. I know that wasn’t him, but his yucky puckies. I choose to forgive Him and TAKE MY PEACE!!
So let’s choose to speak words of… Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. Truth LoveJoy Peace
