Tell Him, Tell Him
Tell the devil today, he is a liar! He will not take your joy, your peace or disturb your spirit. Tell him he cannot sleep in your bed – there’s not enough cover. Tell him he cannot sit in your chair – you will not give him a cushion of comfort.
Tell him he can’t touch your body – it’s covered with the blood. Tell him he cannot audit your finances – you’ve changed accountants. Tell him he cannot enter your home – the locks have been changed. Tell him to leave your workplace – he’s not on your list of things to do for today.
Tell him to take his hands off your children – because you’ve had hands laid on. Tell him you have no time for his nonsense, criticism or fears – you are on a mission, and you walk by faith. Tell him no more tears, heartaches, or headaches – because there’s another that restoreth your soul. Tell him. Tell him. Tell him. Tell him.
Tell him, today, you have a gentle, powerful inner peace within, that consumes you and leaves no room for confusion. Tell him, today you will – respond soothingly to a crying child, a tense spouse, or an impatient friend. Tell him, today, you will find no fault with a relative, friend, or colleague.
Tell him to leave your tongue alone – for today you will not talk of anyone, before placing God at the beginning of your thought. Tell him, wherever you are, that God Is. Tell him, God said, ‘My people will abide in a peaceful habitation…and in quiet resting places.” [Isaiah 32:18] Today, Tell him he is a liar!!!
