One of the major ways by which the devil render useless the destiny of many people on earth is diversion of gifts, time, opportunity and strength. Study shows that many of the secular musician in the world today started from the church, many were specially gifted by God for one reason or the other but due to their lack of genuine encounter with the Lord, carelessness and wrong desire either for money, fame or popularity, the devil hijacked their gift (like he did to Samson) and diverted it to wrong purpose.
Paul said to Archipus;
“…Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.” Col.4:17 kjv
Paul was actually saying this from experience and by revelation. Before he had an encounter with God on his way to Damascus, he was a good orator. He can talk anyone to his own will, but before Paul could discover God’s purpose for this special endowment, devil hijacked it and made him a front line Pharisee, who inspire others to mercilessly murder the believers. However, when he became a believer, he began to use that ability positively and at a point;
“… Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.” Acts 26:28 KJV
It was from this personal experience of Apostle Paul that he is admonishing every one of us today to be careful with every special ability in our lives in order for the devil not to hijack them. What did you think would have become of Apostle Paul if he had died as one of the Pharisee? How many Pharisee did you remember their name for good today?
However, if the devil could divert Saul (Paul) by keeping him busy wrongly in God’s house as Pharisee (since they are religious leaders, who assumed they are doing the right thing by fighting the followers of Jesus Christ), he could as well do the same thing to you today – he can keep you busy with religious activities at the expense of your eternity. He can still keep people busy wrongly in the house of God, he can pre-occupy people with struggle for money (embezzlement) in an organization the Lord had placed them for an assignment. He can occupy one’s heart with lustful desire for a co-worker the Lord had sent you to preach to. He can as well waste precious solitude that God created for you to meditate or do some other destiny-profiting things with immoral thoughts, time wasters or any other good things that cannot add any value to your ability to fulfill destiny.
Don’t allow the devil to waste you, for every Joseph, there is Portiphar’s wife ready to offer you their body free of charge. For every Samson, there is Delilah waiting somewhere to jeopardize their destiny with temporary comfort. For every Gehazi ( God’s special delegates in making), there is Naman waiting with treasure somewhere along the journey to distract. Every opportunity to commit sin is a devil’s bait to get you distracted, demoralized and destroyed. Don’t be distracted; don’t loose your glorious destiny to the devil. Don’t fall into that bait. Stay focus on Christ and how to make Him proud and happy.
