Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith—Hebrews 12:2 Satan is a shrewd enemy. He will use anything to divert our attention away from Christ and distract us from what is truly important. Give the devil his due– he does a good job of doing a bad thing. Millions are so duped by the devil that they don’t even realize what has happened. And most are too busy to care. Thankfully God is at work. Charles Spurgeon wrote: It is ever the Holy Spirit’s work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus; but Satan’s work is just the opposite of this, for he is constantly trying to make us regard ourselves instead of Christ. He insinuates, “Your sins are too great for pardon; you have no faith; you do not repent enough; you will never be able to continue to the end; you have not the joy of His children; you have such a wavering hold of Jesus.” All these are thoughts about self, and we shall never find comfort or assurance by looking within. But the Holy Spirit turns our eyes entirely away from self: He tells us that we are nothing, but that “Christ is all in all.” Yield yourself to the Holy Spirit and you will always be focused on the right thing.
