Mission Accomplished

The devil is an imposter.

He’s a liar, he’s a fake and he longs to be God

He has only one mission, you know.

To steal, to kill and to destroy.

And he won’t stop until it’s done

Staying right by your side

Pretending that he is with you,

That he is for you

Whispering sweet nothings in your ear

And then he gets you alone

And violates the very essence of who you were made to be

The spirit-filled being God is working on

He touches a soft spot

Encountering a nerve that can easily be unraveled

He caresses a hidden thought

Something that was only between you and God

How could he know, you ask

How did you know? You ask him

Because I understand you, he says

And then he comforts you in that thought

Feeding your desire to be loved

Feeding your desire to be understood

Feeding your longing to share

That thought

Satisfying that fleshly desire

You DO understand, you say to him

And you give in to it.

Living it out over and over in your mind

Replacing the Word you have hidden in your heart

With the need to be fed

Next thing you know he’s lying right next to you

As he continues to caress that thought,

Touching your heart,

Your mind,

Your soul,

Right down to the core of your being

And the desire to give in overcomes you

And he takes you.

You speak what he has whispered.

Quality time spent with loved ones, stolen by a harsh word

You say what you heard him say,

Devouring a friendship,

Tearing down a life that took a lifetime to build

You do what he suggested,

Ripping up precious seed that had yet to be watered.

He robbed you of that harvest.

His mission is done.

He has killed, he has stolen and he has destroyed.

And now

You are really alone.

Left to pick up the pieces of your broken thoughts and wounded soul.

Because you let him.

Mission accomplished, he says

And then he moves on to the next participant.


A servant of the Lord,
