Daily Devotional – 7/2/20 “How long?”

You cannot be the one doing the hitting, then hollering when you get hit back. What I mean by hitting is … Hurting, Ignoring, Threatening, Tormenting, Injuring, Neglecting and Grumbling against people. You get what you put out. Beloved, how long will you cry victim when you started it? Please understand, you are deemed the victim when you ARE the victim, not when you are the aggressor.

And understand, this is NOT for victims of abuse and mistreatment of any kind, but I am speaking to the bullies who are quick to want to strike. You know those who find joy in making others suffer. Those who find it easy to demean people on social media or attack through text. Those who belittle for the fun of it. You’re the bully and you cannot cry victim when the victim of your attacks strike back.

Bible shares in Isaiah 29:20-21, “The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down–those who with a word make someone out to be guilty, who ensnare the defender in court and with false testimony deprive the innocent of justice.”

How long do you think you can get by hurting folk? How long do you think you can get away with doing people wrong? How long do you actually think you’ll prosper from stealing people’s stuff? Oh, and just because you don’t get caught, doesn’t mean you are getting away with it. God sees all. See, here’s the truth — the only reason some of you are still being blessed in spite of your evil ways, is because of God’s compassion and love for you, not your cleverness. But bless your heart if you think so.

There are some of y’all, in high places, whom God has snatched the oil from, and the only reason you’re still being promoted is because of your name, not the anointing. Some of y’all are hiding behind the pretense of being holy when you’re really hellish, and the only reason folk are not dying, on your watch, is because God’s hand is on His people. It’s not you boo. God hasn’t knocked you down, YET, because He’s giving you time to fix it. How long will you wait? How long will you act like this? Will you fix it before it’s too late? You won’t keep getting a pass.

Daily Devotional – 5/5/20 “Do it again!”

The enemy has confused you into believing you won’t succeed or nothing you set out to do will prosper. That funky enemy has you fighting yourself, sabotaging your relationship and thinking crazy thoughts. You got up today messy as hell because you laid down with the enemy attached to your back. Beloved, it’s the enemy’s job to get you to ruin relationships, fail at your job, flunk out of class, hold off on opening the business, not beat the addiction, hush and not pray and shut your bible. He also knows you don’t believe enough in yourself, so he’ll plant the small seed of doubt and sit back to watch you destroy everything God purposed for your life.

However, I have enough crazy faith to declare that whatever the enemy is trying to do in the lives of folk around me today won’t prosper! I have enough praying power within me to shift whatever attack the enemy thought was about to prevail! I got enough faith on the inside of me that whatever the enemy was getting ready to release won’t even ignite into a flame. For whoever you are who’s suffering in your pit, I urge you to cry out to God. I don’t care if you’ve cried the last seven days straight, make today number eight and continue until He answers. Whoever you are, being tormented with the demons of your thoughts, I need you to turn it over to God, He’s waiting on you to release it. Whoever you are, who’s drowning in your sorrows, stand up and surrender to God.

Today, I’m praying for you even when you don’t know it because the enemy can’t have you and I will make sure he knows it. Whoever you are, who needs to be reminded that someone is praying for you, here I am. If you need to be reminded that someone believes in you, here I am. If you need to be reminded that someone cares, here I am. I’m praying with and for you that your faith, especially now, does not fail.

Yes, I know you’ve probably tried, and it didn’t work but do it again until it does. If you happen to fall, get up and do it again. If it breaks you, heal then do it again. If it makes you cry, cry then do it again. If you must scream, scream but do it again. If you have to throw everything away, scrap it then do it again. I believe in you and you got this!
