Today's Devotion comes from The Teen Devotional Sponsor: Dare To Share
A Message You Can't Afford to Miss
I have to admit that sometimes following God puts me in the middle of some
very strange circumstances. Today for example, I had several different options going as far as this devotion- but every time I started writing, my
thoughts got stuck as fast as a warm tongue on a subzero metal pole. So what to do?
For some reason, I kept being drawn back to an e-mail I received last week. I
came to the conclusion that its message is what you need to read today. But before you do, I want to ask you to do something. Pray. I mean really
pray. Quiet your heart, remove all distractions, and ask the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of your heart...because what you are about to read may be
the most important thing you see all week.
My prayer for you? Treat this letter like it is real, and written for you.
A LETTER TO YOU FROM SATAN I saw you yesterday as you began your daily
chores. You awoke without kneeling to pray. As a matter of fact, you didn't even bless your meals, or pray before going to bed last night. You are
so unthankful, I like that about you. I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed your way of living, Fool, you are mine. Remember,
you and I have been going steady for years. and I still don't love you yet. As a matter of fact, I hate you, because I hate God. I am only using you
to get even with God. He kicked me out of heaven, and I'm going to use you as long as possible to pay him back. You see, Fool, GOD LOVES YOU and HE
has great plans in store for you.
But you have yielded your life to me, and I'm going to make your life a
living hell. That way, we'll be together twice. This will really hurt God. Thanks to you, I'm really showing Him who's boss in your life with all of
the good times we've had.
We have been watching dirty movies, cursing people out, stealing, lying,
being hypocritical, fornicating, overeating, telling dirty jokes, gossiping, being judgmental, back stabbing people, disrespecting adults, and those
in leadership positions, no respect for the Church, bad attitudes. SURELY you don't want to give all this up. Come on, Fool, let's burn together
forever. I've got some hot plans for us.
This is just a letter of appreciation from me to you. I'd like to say
"THANKS" for letting me use you for most of your foolish life. You are so gullible, I laugh at you. When you are tempted to sin, you give in HA HA
HA, you make me sick. Sin is beginning to take its toll on your life. You look 20 years older, and now, I need new blood.
So go ahead and teach some children how to sin. All you have to do is smoke,
get drunk or drink while under-aged, cheat, gamble, gossip, fornicate, and live being as selfish as possible. Do all of this in the presence of
children and they will do it too. Kids are like that. Well, Fool, I have to let you go for now.
I'll be back in a couple of seconds to tempt you again. If you were
smart, you would run somewhere, confess your sins, and live for God with what little bit of life that you have left. It's not my nature to warn
anyone, but to be your age and still sinning; it's becoming a bit ridiculous.
Don't get me wrong, I still hate you. IT'S JUST THAT YOU'D MAKE A BETTER FOOL
FOR CHRIST. Your Enemy, Satan Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for
some victim to devour.
(I Peter 5:8)
Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He
prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour.
Questions: Which part of this letter applies to you the most? What do
you need to change right away? If this letter didn't speak to you at all, could it be that you are prideful? What would you write back to Satan? -
