Daily Devotional – 8/3/15 “The enemy’s open position”

The devil will use you as long as you’re usable and as soon as you’ve done that which he has endorsed you for; he’ll cast you aside. Yea, the enemy makes your living good, while you’re on his payroll but soon your assignment will end and then you’ll be right back in a jacked up situation trying to figure out how you ended up there. Aren’t you tired of playing both sides, yet? Are you not tired of being used, yet? Chile, the enemy doesn’t care whether you survive in this thang because all he cares about is getting the job done. It’s like working at a temporary service. They send you out to these temporary jobs and they really aren’t concerned whether or not you have benefits, they just need workers. They really don’t care if this is your area of expertise because they’ll train you to do what they need at the time, they just need workers. They really aren’t concerned with much because as soon as you stop doing what they ask, miss a day, be late or better yet; finish the assignment, your job is done. And now, here you are back at the drawing board looking for another job.

The enemy is the same. He’s conniving and doesn’t give a darn about you or your feelings; he just needs workers. Yea, he’ll pay you and he’ll even give you a few rewards but when you’re done; he’ll cast you aside. Then you’ll be back in your pit, crying out to God for help when you should have cut ties with the enemy to begin with. God keeps saying, I’m here but you’re still crying. And then He’ll ask the question like Jesus did in John 8:43, “Why can’t you understand what I am saying? It’s because you can’t even hear me!” He’ll say like John 8:44, “For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.” Is this you? Is this your character? No, then why consistently be used by the enemy? You do understand his retirement plan, don’t you? (I’ve heard it’s hot). But when you get tired, you’ll give your resignation letter and God will be waiting for He forgives and forgets (when you repent) but you have to get up and make the first move!
