This is overdue, so to those who this is really for, I apologize for my disobedience… Even delay in obedience is disobedience, ya heard?!
I was talking to my good friend a couple of weeks ago about how she was feeling the heat in her finances. She was getting attacked from each and every way; unexpected repairs on her home, a student stealing money from her, even an ex boyfriend leaving her house with some money in his pocket that didn’t belong to him.
It seemed as if every time she turned around, Satan was in her back pocket doing what he does best: steal, kill, and destroy.
After chatting it up for a while about how that lil’ hussie stole money out of her wallet at work, I came to the realization about something.
Satan has really limited vision. He can’t see past the current, the right now. Every time he attacks us, whether that be through our money, our bodies, our relationships, our careers, anything, he operates on a “right now” time frame. He can only see as far as what kind of pain or anguish it will cause us right now.
But what he fails to realize, you see, is that everything he does causes us to (if we faint not Gal. 6:9) reap a greater reward than anything that we lost in the first place.
Satan can’t see the other side of things. His view is limited. It’s like he’s sitting at the bottom of a hill throwing stones up at us on top of the hill. If he throws hard enough, a stone or two may hit us. May even knock us down if that stone is big enough. But what he fails to see that behind us, God picks up every stone and is placing it strategically, storing it up, multiplying them so when Satan is done with his futile attack, we can turn around and turn those stones into immediate rewards for our ability to stand.
WHOA. That was good!
So don’t be discouraged when the tough times come. When things are hitting you, one after another, know that Satan is only doing them with a limited view. He can’t see that his antics turn into rewards behind you on the hill…
Ay yo, Lucifer, Beelzebub, Satan, L-O-S-E-R… get some Lasik.
We’re not looking at you, we’re looking paaaaaassst you…
On the Chase,
“But as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good…” Genesis 50:20 NKJV
