Daily Devotional – 9/8/15 “Stop giving the enemy credit! “

Don’t you know every time we speak the enemy’s name, we are giving him credit for stuff he doesn’t deserve? I got a pain in my body that I’ve had since Saturday and I can easily blame him but why? It’s just a momentary minute of pain that I’ve got to endure. I surely won’t give him the credit for it but I will give God all the credit for allowing me to rise with the strength to push through said pain. Listen, the enemy’s main purpose is to steal, kill and destroy and every day he sets out to do just that. He doesn’t need our credit because he stands tall every day waiting to see whose salvation he can steal, whose purpose he can kill and whose gift he can destroy. Is it yours today? If you got up angry instead of in God’s anointing, the enemy is stealing your salvation. Are you still putting off for tomorrow the things you said you’d do last month? Then the enemy is already killing your purpose. Are you utilizing the gift(s) God has blessed you with? If no, then he is already destroying your gifts. What are you going to do about it?

You can continue to say “God knows my heart,” while the enemy is stroking your body and see how far that gets you. Continue to think you are being blessed when you are robbing God by not paying your tithes because the enemy has you thinking the pastor is getting all the money. Keep on giving the enemy credit until he (the enemy) is done with you. Then he’ll have you around here stumbling in the darkness looking for light. Stop giving the enemy credit when you should be declaring that he can no longer have your stuff. Stop giving the enemy credit when you should be looking him in his face and casting his butt back to the pits of hell. Stop giving the enemy credit when you need to tell him that you are no longer usable on his team. Learn how to bite your tongue and think before you speak. Learn how to say no to the Saturday night party and get your butt to worship on Sunday. Learn how to ignore the text from him/her that you have seen in a while. Take yourself home to your spouse and not someone else. Keep your mouth off folk. And stop being so easy manipulated to do the enemy’s job. He doesn’t need any credit so stop giving it to him.
