Daily Devotional – 7/1/14 “Eviction Notice!”

Yea, I know you are tired of being told to hold on until God moves, prayer changes things, trust in God, it’ll be alright in the morning, when God shows up He’ll be on time, trouble won’t last always or there’s a purpose for what you’re going through; when you can’t actually see your way but hold on! See, I’ve found that most times the hell we’re going through can be solved by facing the enemy that has set up camp in our home. I’ve even found that trouble can get in without even setting off the alarm but that’s alright because today we will take back what’s ours. Yes, today we are giving the enemy, the devil, those wolves in sheep’s clothing, those folk who have surrounded us sucking our joy, mooching off our living and taking advantage of our giving an eviction notice! Today is the day we take back what is ours!

Notice of Immediate Eviction:

Date of Notice :

Roommate in Possession: Devil {other names he goes by; Enemy, Backstabber, Liar, Deceiver, Fake Friend and Hater}

Leased Premises: My life, house, my family, my friends, my job

You are in default of your lease because: You’ve overstayed your visit

Reason for eviction:

You’ve occupied my house way too long and you’ve overstayed your welcome. There’s no need for a 30 day notice because an immediate evacuation is in order today. Don’t worry about packing your bags because I’ve already placed them by the curb. Oh, all the things you gave me, they are out there too because I found that they came with a price. No, I don’t need any more help from you to pay my bills because a new roommate has already paid the cost. There is no need to clean or even paint because the new roommate will take care of it all. No need to leave the keys because the locks have been changed too. Yes, I know you’ve enjoyed the time we’ve spent but I can’t say the same because you came in with the intentions of destroying my home and it almost worked when I started to stumble but I’ve gotten my balance back now. All those folk you’ve sent to do your dirty work, they almost had me fooled until I asked them to show me proof of what they could do but I got you now because you no longer have power over me and my house! You can stay if you want because I see my new roommate coming and He’ll take it from here. Yea, I’ve found a new one and I didn’t even have to place an ad in the paper. Oh, He even came with great references that I’ve been able to verify. He said I didn’t have to worry about all the damage you’d done here because He’ll make it look brand new. He said He’ll patch the holes in the roof that were leaking from the rain during my storm. That closet you closed off, He said He’ll open it back up for me so that I’ll have a place to pray. My bed I hardly slept in from the nights of toiling, He said He’ll replace the mattress so that I can rest. That carpet that was run down from my nights of pacing, He’s replacing that too. Your half of the groceries; don’t worry about it because He said I’ll never be hungry again. Your half of the electric bill, He got that too. But before you go, let me thank you for the time you’ve spent here because it has made me stronger and wiser. You can continue laughing, thinking that I’ll be back; He told me you’d say that but I ain’t got no worries because my new roommate has prepared me for that. So you go on now because there’s no room for you here as a matter of fact, here He is now. Enemy, meet my God!

Yes, He now resides here and He handles all of my affairs so you have to go through Him to reach me. Oh, but if you should ever stop by and hear the music playing, that’ll be my praise party. You can watch through the window. Now grab your bags, hitch a ride and get the hell off my property!

If you have any questions, call God; the line is never busy.

Signed: God’s chosen one!

Daily Devotional – 6/15/12 “The devil thought he had me..”

Oh, but I faked to the right, slide to the left and did a quick dip and got away! See, the devil tries to get you and after so many tries, he’ll leave you alone and just when you think he is gone, he’ll attach himself to somebody close to you. Yea, you know how you get one child to acting right and then the other one starts acting crazy or when you’ve had some great months in your marriage and then all of a sudden your spouse starts acting like they need a strait jacket too. Well, I’ve served the devil his eviction notice this morning because there isn’t anything he can try that he hasn’t before and it didn’t work then and it surely won’t work now. So, when all hell is breaking loose in your home, folks on the job aren’t acting right, church members walking around dressed like sheep but really aren’t and family ties are starting to break; post this eviction notice on your door.

Notice of Immediate Eviction

Date of Notice:(insert your date) Mine: TODAY

Tenant in Possession: Devil {other names he goes by; Enemy, Backstabber, Liar, Deceiver, Fake Friend and Hater}

Leased Premises: My life, house, my family, my friends, my job(insert yours here)

You are in default of your lease because: You’ve overstayed your visit (insert yours here)

Reason for eviction:

You’ve been occupying my house for far too long and it’s time for you to go. You don’t have 30 days to move because your lease expires now. Don’t worry about packing your bags because I’ve already placed them on the street and all the things you say you’ve given me, you can have those as well, and they are out there too. No, you don’t owe me any back rent or utilities because it has all been taken care of by the new buyer. The security deposit, first and last month’s rent that you gave me, you can have all of that back too because you made it all look good in the beginning but I soon realized everything that glitters isn’t necessarily gold. No, you don’t have to clean or even paint because the new tenant will take care of all that. Oh, you don’t have to worry about leaving the keys or even trying to come in because the locks have already been changed. I know that you’ve enjoyed the time we’ve spent but me, not so much, so I can’t say the same. See, you came here with the intentions of destroying me but it didn’t work. You even sent folks, dressed in work clothes, to do your dirty work for you but they didn’t prosper either. Yea, I know you thought you had me when you saw me stumbling but that was just a temporary setback. See, I’ve found a new tenant to occupy my home and I didn’t even have to place an ad and He came with great references that I was even able to verify. He said I didn’t have to worry about all the damage you’d done because He’ll make it look brand new. He even patched the holes in the roof from where the rain started leaking during the storm. That closet you closed off, He opened it back up for me so that I’d have a place to pray. That bed I hardly slept in from the nights of pacing, he gave me new mattresses and now I sleep so peacefully. He even replaced the carpet that had been run down from my nights of toiling. So you go on, leave, there is nothing more here for you. Take all your crap with you; don’t leave anything behind as a reason to come back. Oh, but if you happen to stop by and you hear the music playing, that’ll be my praise party.

Who is this new tenant? You actually know him, you’ve met before and all you have to do is knock because he’ll answer the door. He’ll be the man giving out joy, peace and strength. He’ll be the one protecting me from the evil traps you’ll try to send my way and holding the umbrella when you send your storms my direction. He’ll be the one wiping the tears you had me shedding and giving me back the joy that you had taken away. Please don’t get me wrong, I must thank you for the time spent because it has made me stronger and wiser. It was because of you that I am now able to appreciate this new tenant better because I’ve always taken him for granted. Now, when folk talk about me, I have prayer to handle it. When the thunder starts I have faith that allows me to praise my way through. When obstacles are placed in my path, that is too high to go around, I now have strength to climb over them. I know you’re probably laughing, thinking that I’ll be back, that’s ok, he told me you’d say that but I’m not worried because I’m better than I was. Who is it! It’s my God. Yea, the one you’re thinking about; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Yes, he now resides here so I won’t be back to let you in because He’s now handling all my affairs and you have to go through Him to get to me. Don’t take all day removing your mess because He has folks watching, so grab your bags, hitch a ride and get off of my property!

If you have any questions, call Heaven; the line is never busy.
