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!
