DON’T CREDIT THE DEVIL
MAIN TEXT: Colossians 2:15 – He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 – Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
A man once went to a Pastor for counseling. He was in the midst of a financial collapse. “I’ve lost everything,” he cried.
“Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve lost your faith.’
“No,” the man corrected him, “I haven’t lost my faith.”
“Well, then I’m sad to hear that you’ve lost your character.”
“I didn’t say that,” he corrected. “I still have my character.”
“I’m sorry to hear that you’ve lost your salvation.”
“That’s not what I said,” the man objected. “I haven’t lost my salvation.”
“You have your faith, your character, your salvation. Seems to me,” the pastor observed, “that you’ve lost none of the things that really matter.”
Most times we give credit to the devil and keep building his evil CV even when he is not in control of our lives. We glorify the devil in so many ways through our actions like fear or attitude towards a circumstance and this has a deceptive way of draining our spiritual strength and also disconnects us from the right atmosphere for God’s presence gradually.
Beloved, if you have your faith, salvation and character in the midst of the challenges, then you really haven’t lost anything. You have it all. Praise God in every situation and seek God’s direction no matter what happens.
DON’T EMPOWER THE LOSER – ‘SATAN’
PRAYER: Lord God, I choose to give you praise in the challenges of my life and I seek your direction today. I reject the dominion of Satan over my life in Jesus’ name Amen.
