Today's Devotion

While Moses was on the Mount with the Lord, we know what a shameful thing the Lord?s people did! The gold was for the sanctuary in which the Lord was to dwell; it was for the Lord alone. However, they used that very thing that was for the Lord, and made a golden calf and began to worship it. On the day that they made the golden calf, all the evil powers broke into their midst. Why did the evil powers make a golden calf? Their evil intention was that God should not have His people?s worship, and that the very gold that was intended for God?s sanctuary would be used for their own evil purpose. Thus, the evil powers sought to use the same gold as the basis and instrument for the worship of God?s people to Satan! This is what the enemy did at that time. Is this not happening today as well? The things that God gives us is not for ourselves, but it is unto Him; it is for His purpose. Whatever God may have given you?health, material, a good voice, some ability?they must be brought into His service, into His sanctuary. They are for His purpose. But notice how diabolically the powers of hell and darkness break into the psyche of the natural man! The natural man easily gives in to the enemy?s suggestions and that which is meant for the Lord is utilized by the enemy for his own purpose! The enemy has broken into the midst of God?s people time and time again!
