Bang! Bang! Bang!   

Broom of Doom!               

 

"Bang...Bang...Bang!" We would all stop. Knowingly look at each other and fall into formation. Ten kids all under the age of 10-years old, running, playing, making all kinds of noise and simply enjoying the pleasures of childhood. The infamous banging on the ceiling coming through the floor could only mean one thing; we had to headbroomofdoom downstairs where my aunt awaited us with imminent punishment.

 

"Go clean your room...take the garbage out...wash the dishes," my mother would instruct each of us to do. We would scurry to fulfill her command all the while knowing that we had to face the wrath of my aunt for simply having fun. Once we completed the task, we gathered once again in formation to head downstairs to confront my aunt, who believe it or not was never coming upstairs.

 

We even came up with a theme song, "March on, march on..." as we descended into the abyss of punishment. We all knew no one would escape her wrath.

 

Years later after my aunt had passed away and I was well into my thirties, my mother told us how she would purposely distract us by giving us chores to do. She went on to say that what was interesting is that we would hurry up and do whatever she told us and head downstairs. I guess obedience was just inside of us regardless if it was taking us to our doom.

 

Naturally, we asked her, "Why didn't you just tell us not to go?" She replied, "Because I couldn't go against your aunt's authority, but I could provide you with something to do so you would not have to endure the punishment." In essence, she provided an alternative path for us, but we were determined to pursue the path of the broom of doom.

 

It is no different with God. He provides us alternatives to the paths that we have selected, but it may take years before we ever realize that He provided us a different way. The broom of doom may be in the form of many things that want to destroy us. Just like we became accomplices to our imminent punishment and turned a deaf ear to heed another way, we often do the same thing with our lives.

 

We continue to march on towards destructive behaviors and habits that we know ultimately will cause us pain. The same applies to unhealthy relationships you find yourself in again and again that destroy self-esteem or in some instances literally kill you.

 

Some cry out, "I can't help myself!" I beg to differ. You can't help but help yourself. As long as you relinquish your power and authority to someone or something you will always be at their mercy. It doesn't matter if it is warranted or not. You tacitly give up your right to make a decision not to go and to choose a better way. The choice was presented before you. It is up to you not to go down that path!

 

Bang...bang...bang! There it goes again the broom of doom beckoning you. Stop marching towards your destruction and listen to God. Open your spiritual ears and eyes so you can envision all God has for you. Make a bow-face and turn away from and a deaf ear to the things that beckon you to destruction and pain. It doesn't take years to take the alternative path of abundance God has for you, it only takes a moment!

SCRIPTURES

    

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 (KJV)

 

And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. John 10:5 (KJV)

 

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8 (KJV)

 

As soon as they were outside, one {of the angels} said, "Run for your lives! Don't look behind you, and don't stop on the plain. Run for the hills, or you'll be swept away! . . ."Oh no! Even though you've been so good to me and though you've been very kind to me by saving my life, I can't run as far as the hills. This disaster will overtake me, and I'll die. Gen 19:17-19 (GW)

 

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Deut 30:19 (KJV)

 

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Prov 14:12 (KJV)
 
 PRAY


Father

  Bless me to open my ears to hear your Words in order for me to turn away from the curse things in life that only wants to destroy me. I know that Your son Jesus, came so I can have an abundant life. Open my spiritual eyes to see the destructive path that lies ahead of me and to make a bow-face as I embrace all that You have for me. Provide me with the strength and courage to walk away from those things and people who mean me no good. I know that as I have joined up with You I am more than victorious in conquering and overcoming these strongholds. 

 Amen
