I remember that day, I heard the Spirit of God say, “It is time you wrote something to glorify My name.”
So I jumped on my computer, and just as I began navigating…. a birthday post pops out….. ??!! wow… So then I felt obligated to wish this person whom I hanged with one time, a happy birthday. Shocks…. It didn’t even say it was his birthday on his profile, and I wasn’t allowed to post anything, so I facebook mailed…. Then I blanked out staring at some ad, then I was able to catch myself enough to remember that there was a paper due at 5, and I needed to head to the gym soon…. soaking heavily on worry and confusion, I lay there wondering where the days and the seconds had gone, ghost of ex boyfriends’ past, and if Trevor Noah would ever say my name… the entire thing…. mmm even darker thoughts. I didn’t feel myself distancing away from…. my quiet time with God.
“It is time you wrote something to glorify My name.” Wow… those words again lol. You see what Facebook can do to you ? when you are actually even looking, time likes to tiptoe behind you, especially when you are meant to be doing things for God, and exposing the devils tools to distract us. Yes, some things are made with good intentions, like the television, like sugar, like trees, human beings know how to mess things up, when they are given the right amount of demonic motivation…. friends?? family…..Our downfalls make us think that isolation from this world is what is required to be happy, but when we were distracted from God, even once, for the first time, like in the garden, when we lost sight, of what we were meant to be doing; living, to glorify His name. Instead, we became idols of ourselves, and slaves to sin, and then captives of the devil. But JESUS rewrote that script. He is the Alpha and the Omega. He is God. He is Eternity.
Rebuke the devil whenever you are tried and tested, whenever you are tempted to be distracted and calculate into worthless things, like how many people like you, how many care, how many are thinking of you, when everyone is fighting their own problems…. troubles from sin…. who introduced sin? Who was in that tried to implant the seed of rebellion, the consequences of being deported from heaven, who else would try to trick us to kill ourselves with idols, with pain, with confusion, with envy, with drugs, with gossip, with rebellion, with intrusion, with lies, with trials and seclusion…. with premarital , homosexual and adulterous sex. “Sexuality was God’s idea in the first place; he not only understands it but knows the type of power it can wield over us. And He understands how it causes us to stumble again and again. God gets it” This is why many people have been afraid to serve God, because they have been under demonic influence and bondage for so long, but in the name of Jesus, any relationship, seducer, destoyer, anything holding you back from doing god’s work will be broken and scattered before you eyes. If a decision you are making, does not have God in between you and your desired goal, then it is probably the devil in the midst of things. “Go ahead, bite that apple!” And usually this demonic encouragement will come out of the mouths of friends and family… its rare that the devil would send strangers to entice you… Deceptive intrusion, and yet we go ahead and pursue goals like porn and prostitution, an example of demonic connections through strangers.We were once tied as man and woman, as man and God, as God and bride, then some slithering snake comes, and we are living our lives by dodging from knives.
Prayer is our weapon in this constant fight. But first before anything else, before Facebook, before twitter, before the announcements of the public situation, pay attention, you are different, you are alive in a dying world, you are covered by the blood of the only God. Thank Jesus, that you are no more separated by sin, because now you know the schemes and distractions of the enemy. It is 2017, and we are still alive. The church is alive. Thank Jesus. It is time you we all did something to glorify God. Be a faithful bride to Christ.
“Evil doers are snared by their own sin, but the righteous rejoice and are glad.”
