“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy”
I went to church on yesterday and the guest pastor made the statement “Is the Devil Stalking You?” I died laughing because he took me off guard after he made his explanation I better understood. He explained it by saying the devil studies us and he knows what we like so he waits for the opportunity to catch us slipping. He also stated that he (the devil) is upset devil had us and when we found Jesus he got upset that the relationship had been cut off. So the devil’s mission is to catch us at our weakest point and when he gets us he will never let us go again.
I have had my share of stalkers and it’s not a pleasant feeling. Some women think it’s cute for a man to be possessive, controlling, and hiding in the bushes…..me on the other hand …. I’ll pass. So for the pastor to put the devil in the category of a stalker was actually the right place for him to be. He is always in my ear trying to steer me in the wrong direction because he doesn’t want to be the only one in hell. The devil is mad because he was cast out of heaven for being greedy and wanting to be God but there is only one God .He said “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
In conclusion, even though the devil has a plan God is working things out for our good. The devil is a klepto and I will not allow him to steal my joy. So on today I would like for you all to know that no matter how ruff things may be in your life just know that God has your back, never let the Devil get the best of you and steal your joy.
