The Accuser of the Brethren

“Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night.”

– Revelation 12:10

Shame is this thing that says I’m not worthy of love and belonging. It says I’m embarrassed of who I am. I’m embarrassed of my sin. People think I’m this one thing, but really I’m this way. I can’t really do much more than I’m doing now because well just look at me. I’m not where I should be. Look at my peers. There’s this sort of inner embarrassment that comes with shame that should never be there. You are chosen, called, loved, blessed, needed. Believe it with faith! It’s the enemy’s voice, by the way, that says you’re worthless and you’re a sinner. The Bible calls him the accuser of the brethren. When you hear yourself, or when you hear the voice saying you’re worthless, you’re a sinner, you’re a mess up, you’re a screw-up, you don’t belong, and you say that to yourself, you are agreeing with the devil! When we bully ourselves and others, we’re agreeing with the enemy.


Dear God, help me to believe in you and not the lies of Satan. Help me to let go of my shame.

  1. Dear Bobby,
    Thank you for your messages, the help me really to get through the day. I understand every word you say, I truly believe God is working on me, but the feeling of shame is very strong. I’m a single mom, divorced and I’m struggling with financial problems. The feeling that I’m not succeeding, it’s so shameful.
    I pray Lord every day for better days, but it’s very hard to live this way.
