Daily Devotional – 4/28/14 “It’s Monday, ALL DAY!”

Yep, it’s Monday but guess what, it will be all day so why are you mad about it? Why are you still mumbling over mess from last Monday? Why are you still messing with meaningless stuff that really shouldn’t matter anyway? Why are you up in the middle of the night mourning over a relationship that wasn’t meant for you and you knew it going in? Why are you settling for being someone else sloppy seconds when you ought to be mending your marriage? And why does it matter about the number of followers you have on Twitter if you aren’t following God? Why are you concerned about the number of friends you have on Facebook when you can’t even show yourself friendly to the people in your own house? I’m mean, you’re the one that’s a mess and then you have the audacity to be miserable too. Sat down, please!

Stop blaming God and stop giving the devil all the credit when some of the mess you’re in, you caused. Yes, God has a purpose for everything you go through but that’s if you’re going through it with Him. You can’t expect God to work a miracle in something that He had no parts in. No sir, no ma’am; God isn’t mistreating you, you’re missing His message. God isn’t the one multiplying your misfortune; you’re simply mingling with the wrong people. Yea, it could be the ministry you’re mixing with but then again it could be the messengers in your midst. Who are you listening too? You’re broke because you overspent trying to keep up with everybody else when you need to get up out of your materialistic mindset and manage the money you make. Stop dwelling on the past and let go of mistakes you made and enjoy the miracle of the moment. Release all of the mess that’s masking the marvelous mission God is trying to manifest in your life. Stop following the media and meditate. It’s no secret that God can multiply miracles, move mountains, maximize what we see as minor things, minimize what we see as major things, turn mistakes into missions, mess into messages, midlife crisis into ministries and mischievous meddlers into missionaries but then what? After God has done His part, you do know that you have to do yours, right? Stop blaming Monday because it shows up the same time every week. Stop blaming others, take control.
