Daily Devotional – 3/2/15 “What are you doing?”

A new month, how you doing on those resolutions? Seen any changes or should I ask, have you made any changes? Been to church any this year? Lost any weight? Wrote any visions? Made any plans? Stepped out on faith at all? It’s just the 3rd month of the New Year, what are you waiting on and what have you been doing? You do know that time waits for no man or woman, right? Or have you not realized that death doesn’t care that you’ve yet to start your business, get your affairs in order, apologize for the wrong you’ve done, repent for the sins you’ve committed or even left a legacy behind? No, death doesn’t stop to ask if you’re ready; it just shows up. Sickness doesn’t care that you need to work; it shows up. Depression doesn’t care that you have a family to take care of, it’ll show up. Suicidal thoughts doesn’t care about the pain you’ll leave behind, they’ll still invade your space … If you aren’t prepared ahead of time to deal with it. This is why you have to be prayed up! What have you been doing? Keep thinking you got time to get it right. Keep thinking you got time to get it together. Just stay in the hell you’re in, thinking you got time to get out until it’s too late and the doors shut.

Let me drop this in your spirit … Being in the world isn’t as easy as you think it is. You feel like all the hell will begin the moment you give your life to Christ but baby, you were already living in hell before. The only reason you couldn’t see the enemy anymore is because you all had become friends. See, when you are in the world, the enemy no longer has to fight you because he gives you everything you need to be his and you’ll give him everything of yours to be his. It’s like a person with an addiction, they will sell the close off of their backs to feed their habit and when you are a part of the enemy’s team; he is your addiction and he’ll keep dangling your “habit” over your head and you’ll keep coming back to feed your habit. Why does he need to fight you? You’re paying for it with your life. When will you stop? What are you doing? You’re wondering why your home is full of hell, keep staying at home on Sunday morning. You’re wondering why your heart keeps getting hurt, keep giving it to the wrong person. You’re wondering why you can’t forgive, keep staying away from God. It’s just the 3rd month of the New Year, when will you start making this your year? That is what you said at the end of 2014, isn’t it? What are you doing? Time isn’t dependent upon you for the bible says in James 4:14, “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”
