That Clever Devil
“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Mark 13:22
Isn’t it amazing how one day you are flying high and the next you are so low in the dumps that you can’t get yourself out of the bed? Have you ever wondered what caused that sudden dip in your enthusiasm? Often times it’s that clever devil that wants you to think all hope is lost and there is no sense in continuing your journey. What about the friends that were your “besties” one day and suddenly they don’t want to be bothered with you anymore or the job that praised your work last week and this week are threatening to terminate you if you don’t do better? You review the events leading up to these occurrences and you can’t for the life of you figure out what went wrong. It’s that clever devil that would have you to believe YOU did something wrong. The truth of the matter is you were excited, driven and passionate about progress and that clever devil didn’t like it. He wants you to believe it’s useless and quit. He wants you to disconnect from those people that ARE going to be instrumental to your success so you don’t succeed. He wants your destiny!
Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. 2 John 1:8
Stop focusing on the stuff that is going on around you, don’t listen to the voices that are distracting you and look within you for what you know you have inside. God has given you EVERYTHING you need to do what He has destined you to do and NOTHING or NO ONE can or will change that but you. If you take your eyes off of Him, it will appear that you’re failing but if you continue to seek His direction and believe in His plan for your life, you will ALWAYS remember ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE through Him. No more arguments or debates with insignificant individuals, no more lazy days, no more self-destructive activities. It’s time to remember and return to His plan. Oh yeah, don’t be upset with those people that the devil has been using to get to you, it’s not them it’s that clever devil and he’s hot on your trail. Pray and praise God to defeat him. He’s not as clever as he thinks and he certainly isn’t wiser than God.
GET UP AND GO GET YOUR BLESSING!
