I opened the door to the hall closet and stepped down onto wet carpet. I checked to see if one of the plastic gallons of water leaked. Nope. Then I started to feel around on the carpeted floor and I had to move everything on the floor and pull back the carpet and liner to see what was going on. I followed the water through the closet and into the bedroom. Thank God the water was moving very very slowly. I had to laugh at the devil.
Since before the beginning of the year I’ve been working on publishing volume two of my WINGS series, which I did in June, and just last week I published a smaller booklet, A Devil on Every Door Knob: And the Faith to Know What to Do About It. I have another booklet coming out on demons also. Obviously Satan is upset with me because since the beginning of the year I’ve been attacked by worldly things. Finally, the devil pushed his luck too far and I’m not biting the bait. He’s a fool and I have the wisdom of God.
This time, by revelation, I was told to laugh at the devil and speak to the demon bringing this on. I said, “Do you think you are interrupting my plans for the day by causing this to happen? Nope! This IS the plan for the day! I trust in Jesus. I’m living in the moment and I am going to see the value of a good God and good Lord with me today. HA HA HA!”
In testing the various places that might have been leaking, I found out my second shower was working great. I had trouble with the draining a year ago and hadn’t needed to check it until now. I wouldn’t have known it was totally okay until having to check it in this situation. Ha! Ha! Also I’d been wanting to clean out the closet. Well now I have to and I’m not in a hurry so I’m at ease with it.
And the other great thing is that I think it may be a broken pipe in my sprinkler system and that is okay too, because I’ve been wanting to revamp the irrigation. It was put in in 1994 and has only had one minor repair in all these years. But it needs a little work, so now’s the time.
I’m laughing at the devil because what he thought was a great coup is only going to give glory to God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I was reminded of how Jesus must have been laughing at the devil when He said bye bye to Hell when the devil killed him and thought he had Him. God raised his son Jesus from the dead and from Hell itself, to have everlasting victory and give that victory to us. 1 John 3:8 tells us: “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
I told Satan, “Nope, devil, you get no glory here! In fact, you didn’t even affect me. You actually helped execute God’s will! HA! HA! HA!”
I am so thankful to the Lord for my attitude change. At one time in my life, this kind of thing would really put me over the edge and I’d drive myself and everyone around me crazy with my frantic nervousness and obsessive compulsion to fix everything right away.
But I’m different now. I believe Romans 8:28, that says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” And I can say that even in the midst of problems, applying Philippians 4:6-7 is working for me. It says, “Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Life brings challenges and problems. Our attitude brings resolve and solutions. The Bible really does have all the answers to life.
The water is turned off now and the next step will come this week. Keep us in your prayers as the solution gets sorted out.
