Daily Devotional – 8/21/15 “This accessory may not be supported!”

Have you ever purchased a cheap charger only to plug it in to get the error message, “this accessory may not be supported?” Welp, I can imagine our spirit saying the same thing when we plug some of the stuff into us that we know good and well, don’t belong. Yea, I can just hear our spirits screaming, “accessory not supported,” every time we hook up to somebody we ain’t got any business intertwining our spirit with. I can just bet our spirit is hollering, “hold up; this accessory isn’t supported,” every time we try to make stuff fit into us that we know doesn’t mesh well with our innermost parts. That’s like eating something you know isn’t going to agree with your stomach. Yea, it may feel good going in but it sure doesn’t coming out. Oh, I can imagine God saying, “that accessory doesn’t fit,” when we try to make worldly stuff fit into His word to appease folk. Baby, the word doesn’t change and we shouldn’t change it because folk’s feelings get hurt. The bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” If it offends you; say ouch, repent and do better.

Understand this, not everybody or everything is fit for you. Why do you think clothes and shoes come in different colors and sizes? Why do you think there is different variety of stuff to choose from? You have to know who or what is compatible to your spirit before you go allowing them or it to be plugged in. Don’t you know plugging anything into you can cause damage? Yea, you might short-circuit and then you’ll be walking around with a dim light. Or you might go dead completely and then you’ll be walking around here wandering without knowing who or whose you are. Beloved, if you don’t get anything else; get is this, not everything is going to fit in your spiritual life and as a Saint of God you should be okay with that. Be okay with declining that party invitation, be fine with not hanging out with them and be alright with not going there. This is your life and only you will be giving an account at judgment. Be careful who you allow to plug into your spirit because their accessory may not be supported!

Daily Devotional – 5/6/15 “Who are you hooked too?”

When your car battery is dead, you hook it up to another battery that is full of life for a charge. When your electronic device dies or is dying, you plug it into an electrical outlet to recharge its battery – it gets hooked back up. When your tire is low, you hook an air hose onto the tire to re-pump it full of air. When man is on the verge of death, life saving measures is sometimes taken in the form of them being hooked up to machines that breathes for them. When you’re in heart surgery, you’re hooked up to a heart bypass machine that keeps your body alive while your heart is being worked on. When you’re addicted to something, you’re hooked on it. When you can’t get enough of someone, you’re hooked on them. When you go fishing and you catch a fish, it takes the bait; it’s caught on your hook … What am I trying to say? Well, you need to be careful who and what you hook up too. Yea, Psalm 1:1 says, “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.” See, not only are you blessed by what you do but you’re also blessed by the company you keep. You need to be careful who you hook up with! Who are you hooking up with? 2 Corinthians 6:14 says, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”

Yea, I know you’re trying to show yourself friendly but baby; you’ve got to be careful who you hook up with. It’s like buying a cheap charger for your expensive phone, they won’t all work. Haven’t you seen the warning that comes up on the iPhone when you plug just any charger into it? It’ll say, “This accessory may not be supported,” well that’s how some folk and things are to our spirit, “They may not be supported!” This is why you have to be careful who you allow to hook up to your spirit. Yea, I know you want everybody to go with you but beloved, everybody won’t make the cut, everybody can’t handle your elevation, everybody can’t take it – they may not support your spirit! My God! You’ve got to be able to unplug before it overloads you and then you’ve got to be alright with it. What’s the sense of constantly having something plugged in that’s draining your spirit? What’s the sense of consistently having something hooked up to you that’s not replenishing your power? Chile, you’d better learn who you need to be hooked up with. The greatest power source there is to have is God. He, who can recharge, refreshes, restores and renews you all in one sitting. For Isaiah 40:29 says, “He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.” Be careful who you hook up with!
