Condemnation, trust and lies

Why are we so quick to believe the enemy’s lies that seek to condem us?  The enemy is an expert at mixing truth with lies – quick to point the finger when sin occurs and tell of judgement and eternal condemnation.  Why aren’t we secure in Gods love of us?

1 John 2:1 “My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if
anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He
is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.”

What is the root of our inability to trust God?  Why do we find it hard to believe that God will complete the good work He started in us?  (Phil 1:6).

Why is it that we unable to rest without the knowledge that I have taken all the necessary steps to ensure that things are in hand?  Because surely if I have taken the steps in my strength, then all must be well!  Why are we so sure of ourselves but not of God?  Why is it so hard to trust?!  (2 Chron 20).

Why do I so easily believe the enemies lies about me?
