When you shop in the grocery store, would you intentionally buy an item that is expired? When you go to eat some cereal, would you choose expired milk? Would you want to get pulled over driving on expired tags? Would you stay in a place past your lease expiration date? If you only paid for 30 minutes of light, would you stay there 30 additional minutes past the expired time in the dark? I’m only asking these things because I am trying to figure out why you are staying in an expired place with the enemy. I mean, hasn’t his time ran out yet? When are you going to tell him to pack his stuff and get the hell out of your house, your head, your heart, your text messages, your inbox, your spiritual life and your pocket? Hasn’t his time expired? Isn’t he spoiled by now? Why are you still holding on to him when he wasn’t good when you allowed him in, in the first place? Oh, I know he felt good in the beginning. He was telling you everything you needed to hear. Touching all the right spots but how’s that working out for you now?
Please understand, I am using the pronoun he only because I’m referring to the enemy so don’t get this thang twisted thinking I am only referring to a man. No ma’am, no sir; I am referring to any aspect of the enemy that has overstayed his welcome in your place. This can be male, female, some materialistic things; depression, sickness, anger, hate, bitterness, resentment or whatever has you bound. Whatsoever it is, it’s time you throw it out. Aren’t you tired of smelling that rotten smell of your spirit decaying from that expired stuff being attached to you? Aren’t you tired of your house being in turmoil because of the enemy being camped out there and he doesn’t belong? Aren’t you tired of walking over old stuff? Well, when are you going to do something about it? When are you going to clean up? You do know that everything has an expiration date, including the enemy; stop allowing him to overstay! The bible says if you resist him, he’ll flee … what are you waiting on? His time has expired and it’s time you gave him his walking papers!
