I knew when I accepted my calling into ministry that the enemy would amp up his attack towards me (it’s his job) and I knew that relationships between some folk would change and that some wouldn’t accept the change in me (I was expecting it) but man! I’m used to the enemy, I can handle him so he tries to attach himself to my children and use them but it won’t prosper. Not on my watch. The change I witness in folk, well I can’t do anything about them but pray because I’ve been given a mission and I won’t stop now! My uncle said on yesterday that sometimes you have to say “to hell with it” to certain things and that’s what I’m doing today. I am sending the devil, his attacks, the obstacles that’s trying to cause me to stumble, the non-support, the let downs, the hurt and everything else that means me no good; all back to the pits of hell from where it came.
See, I’ve come to realize that in order for you to give up on stuff it has to either be too hard for you to handle or to stressful and the enemy uses that. He will beat you over the head with it, he will make your life a living hell and he will take you to the point of throwing in the towel but don’t! I’ve shared this scripture before and I even shared it in my sermon on yesterday and it fits here for Psalm 34:19-20 says, “The righteous person faces many troubles but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken?” But you have to be righteous. Please get this … I didn’t say perfect but I said righteous, which means morally good and upright. Colossians 2:7 defines it as this, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness,” because if you live in God, you’ll be righteous. I know that you may not understand it but go through it; it’ll all make sense soon. You may not see your way but walk on, there’s some light up ahead. You may not see anyone in your corner but know that someone is praying for you. I don’t know what you’re facing but hold on; it won’t last because everything has an expiration date. Don’t believe me? Look around even ink dries up in a pen. You’ve been fighting the same people, the same issue; the same battle for a long time now and nothing has changed yet, let it go. It’s not yours to fight! Sometimes you have to let go and let God!
