OUR DAILY MANNA DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR DECEMBER 21, 2021 – (DON’T LET THE DEVIL TALK YOU OUT OF GOD’S BLESSINGS)
TOPIC: DON’T LET THE DEVIL TALK YOU OUT OF GOD’S BLESSINGS
BASIC SCRIPTURE: GENESIS 3:1-7
Man’s biggest problem started the day that the devil talked him out of God’s blessings. He came in the form of a serpent to Eve and asked him, ‘Has the Lord said that you should not eat of every tree of the garden? It was a harmless question but it was filled with the seed of deceit.
The woman entertained him and was eventually deceived into eating the fruit that God had commanded them not to eat. The devil told him, “In the day that you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be as gods, knowing good and evil” As 2021 ends, know this again: When you entertain the thoughts and suggestions of the devil, he will convince you to begin to think that you are not what God says you are.
He will convince you into doing something that God has instructed you not to do. He will do all he can so that you can dump your God-given blessings and His rich grace, and go for something lower. That is his strategy, and I don’t want you to be his victim anymore. Enough is enough.
If God says that you can have something, then go for it. Don’t settle for less. If God says that you can accomplish something then go for it. Don’t settie for less. No wonder Bruce Springsteen has this to say, “Dreams mean nothing unless you are strong enough to fight for them and make them come true.”
When God plants a dream in your heart, you can be sure that He is going to equip you with all that it takes to make that dream a reality. I want to encourage you today; never give up on your God-gIven dream. Never give up on the rich promises God has given you.
