The Devil plays Chess

by Belinda Kendall

Wouldn’t it be something if Paula Dean and Zimmerman are a test from the devil to show God why you are not ready for your blessing? And your conversations and reactions are the main reason you can’t be trusted to be in a position of leadership?

Job 2:1-3 said,” On another day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him. 2 And the LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.”

Please know that the devil plays chess. His movements are slow and calculating, considering every action and reaction. Some of you have been walking with God for a long time, and think you know how the devil works. So the wiser you got, the wiser the devil got also. Wouldn’t it be sad if some of you, who have been walking with God for years, praying for your breakthrough, deny yourself before it happened? Why? Because the devil allowed a situation to happen and take center stage to show God you still have bitterness and judgment in your heart, and you are still not ready to lead. We saw this same test during the election and Christians said and did things they never had done before. A person’s real character is always revealed under pressure.

Matthews 10:16 said, “”I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves” Remember this scripture so you want get caught up in the ways of the world, and miss your blessing. Now are you ready for the next test? Remember everybody else will be judging too.
