The Devilâ€™s Most Prized Tool
â€œMine eyes are ever toward the Lordâ€¦â€ - Psalm 25:15
Thereâ€™s a story about the devil auctioning off his tools. He had a high price on pride, laziness, arrogance, hate, envy, and jealousy. But there was one tool that had a sign under it, â€œNot For Sale.â€ Someone said, â€œWhat is that tool and why isnâ€™t it for sale?â€ â€œWell,â€ he said, â€œI canâ€™t afford to get rid of that one. Itâ€™s my chief tool, discouragement. With this tool, I can pry open a heart, and once I get in I can do most anything I want.â€
Do you want me to tell you why you get discouraged? Iâ€™ll give it to you in a nutshellâ€”youâ€™ve taken your eyes off God!
Are you discouraged? If not, praise God! And find someone who is so that you can give them the encouragement they need in Jesus Christ. Maybe itâ€™s your next-door neighbor, maybe itâ€™s a co worker, maybe itâ€™s your spouse.
