The past few weeks many of us have been hit with adversity…..and whether it’s been personal or twice removed, you have been affected.
Let me tell you friends, it’s ok to be affected. It really is. Situations get real and times get hard, but I want us to place the blame where the blame is RIGHTFULLY due.
There is only ONE to blame. ONE. Let me say that again, THERE IS ONLY ONE TO BLAME.
Let’s expose him for who he is. He’s called the accuser, the thief, the enemy, the father of lies, the tempter, the ruler of this world, the roaring lion and the prince of the power of the air. A murderer, a serpent, and a spirit that continually works in the sons of disobedience.
And the blame goes to……
That’s right folks, the devil.
Not people. NOT people. People are loved. they are wanted. They are desired above all treasure. Can we be used as a tactic? Absolutely. But the war is spiritual friends, not carnal.
Fear is not to blame. Fear is something to be exposed and than smashed and trodden upon….and than extinguished. Can fear be a tool? Absolutely. But fear relates back to people, and people are not to blame.
Let me tell you something that you might not know. We are in a war against SPIRITUAL forces. And the devil LOVES it when he sees people running around trying to place the blame on everything else EXCEPT HIM. What a tiny, disgusting, little thief. He will meet his end. But until that day comes,
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
So let’s be affected by what’s going on. Let’s not pretend it’s not happening. But let’s put on our armor. Let’s weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. Let’s stand against the real enemy TOGETHER and stop blaming people, emotions, things, or ANYTHING else but the devil.
We may have lost a few battles, but Jesus has won this thing- and we can carry it out as the brotherhood is fully equipped.
I “forgot” to put the last part of John 10:10 on here, so let’s end with a powerful statement.
But I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
