Small View of God



A small view of God, an inaccurate view of God will lead to sin:

Sin against God

Sin against man

Fear

Anxiety

Worry

Doubt

Wavering

Double-mindedness

Unbelief

Prayerlessness

Neglect of the Word of God

Selfishness

Self-focus

Carrying a burden that God never intended for me to carry alone

Ceasing to praise and worship God

Overestimating myself

Underestimating others

Failure to put on the full armor of God

Fruitlessness

Bad fruit

Failure to take every thought captive…giving my thoughts free rein

Discouragement, not encouragement

Losing my focus that I am engaged in a spiritual battle every day this side of heaven

Listening to the lies and propaganda of the enemy

I’m sure that this list could go on and on.  Perhaps you have a few that you can think of too.  Please free to share them.  

I think I'm safe in saying that nothing good comes when I have a small view of God.

Amen, so true.

You are absolutely right! I particularly like that you pointed out self-centeredness. When we become focused on self more than God we lose all perspective of His work in our lives. Excellent word today!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Praise God for His Holy Spirit at work within us and conviction of sin.

It's a bit unnerving that I can find myself drifting, ever so slightly off course and not realize it.

Blessings in Christ to you both.
