Daily Devotional – 10/27/17 “Authorized personnel only!”

During annual healthcare enrollment, here at work, there is a wellbeing survey that can be taken to have extra money added to the HRA account. Each spouse can do it, independently. I’ve completed mine but my husband’s account has to be reset so I called. Unfortunately, the rep said, we will need to speak with him and he can add you as an authorized user. As I prepared to send him a text with all the information, my thoughts shifted and I began thinking … how many folks are making changes to your life and they aren’t even authorized users? Think about it for a moment and honestly ask yourself this question because you may just have to face a harsh reality. Yes, I know they make you feel good but are they worthy of authorization? Yes, they can slide you a few bucks to get your hair done but are they worthy of holding a position of authority? Yes, the times they do show up, they show up but can they handle the responsibility of being an authorized user?

Look, if you don’t trust them enough to give them access to the Regions, AT&T or Comcast account neither will they be called in the case of emergency, why in the ‘hello’ are they privy to your stuff? Beloved, you have to stop giving temporary folk, permanent folk privileges. And you have to stop giving folk the power of authority when all they are capable of handling is the job of consulting. You do realize consultants have a contract that comes to an end, right? What I am saying is this, be mindful of those who’ve you listed as authorized users on your account of life because they may just make changes you are not ready for or can handle. As a matter of fact, they may even make changes they had no business and/or sound mind to be making in the first place. This is why you may have to tell folk, “This is a restricted area only accessible by authorized personnel,” because the bible says, “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” – Proverbs 4:23
