Too often we talk about how big our problems are and not how big God is to our problems. We’re quick to affirm the voice of defeat, instead of the voice of victory. If the power of life and death is in the tongue, then what is it that you’re saying?
We speak our own defeat into existence. Whether we realize it or not, when you do this you act as a proxy for evil and the devil’s advocate. Listen to what you’re saying. Listen to yourself. I say this not in judgment of anyone, but as a word of encouragement. I too get have said things that I shouldn’t have said, but this is why I have continually emphasis the message of considering others, tolerance, acceptance and respect for one another. It is difficult to have respect for those who shows themselves unrespectable, but you have to consider them too.
Many have heard the term, “the devil is in the details”, when asked to explain something that appears to be complicated or misunderstood. If the devil is in the details, then isn’t that an indicator that the plan is tainted?
Is the devil in your details? Is what you’re saying self-defeating? How often have you demonstrated your consideration for others with disrespectful words? Are you walking by faith or just by sight? If you really claim to be a Christian, you got to be honest enough to ask yourself these questions.
Are you the Devil’s advocate?
I believe if you’re really honest with yourself some will realize that you are or were. Consider Others.
