“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
We have all been a part of those glorious Sunday morning worship services where we receive a healing touch of the Lord or a word from the Lord. Maybe in one of those life changing services, we got Saved or the Holy Spirit guided our hearts back in Fellowship with Jesus Christ. Oh what a great Sunday!! Holy Ghost hoe-down ensues, the Gifts of the Spirit are flowing, and we bask in the Presence of the Lord. After these types of services, we go out into the world where we feel like Jesus is sitting right next to us in our cars and at the dinner table with our families. We are full in our bellies and full in our spirits!! Glory to God!!
Then comes Monday…
The devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy on Monday the Gift of Christ we received on Sunday. The wicked one will bring people, or circumstance, out of nowhere to try and rob us of our blessing from God. He knows he cannot touch us on Sunday, but oh how fatigued we are on Monday from all of the excitement and joy of our Holy Ghost filled Sunday. The Evil One wants to turn our Sunday blessing into a Monday fantasy.
“But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.”
2 Thessalonians 3:3
Jesus Christ, on the other hand, reminds us that it is His Life, His Blessings, and His Love that not only gives us life on Monday, but an abundant life on Tuesday and beyond.
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.”
It is the Grace of God that allows us to receive His Sunday Blessing, but it is Monday Faith that will allow us to keep our Blessing. It is so important we seek the Face of God with a greater desire on Monday by diving into His Word to confirm His Manifested, Holy Ghost Move on Sunday. Our knees are to be as raw and bruised in the closet of prayer on Monday as they were in the altars on Sunday. The songs we sing of praise, worship, and adoration on Sunday should be the song in our hearts and flowing from our lips on Monday. If the devil knocks on our door, we kick him out in the Name of Jesus Christ for Monday curbside trash pickup!
