Its October which means its monster season. If you have read Creating Monsters, you know what I’m referring to. If you haven’t read the book, now’s a great time to give it a read.
The monster is always lurking and ready to pounce. Just this week I experienced the monster surface in an artist who I know is very aware of the monster’s cunning ever presence and danger. The monster still managed to find a crack in their monster closet causing some unpleasant thoughts of “me” to take control.
Do you ever think you should be in the spotlight as opposed to someone else? When you are taking a group photo, do you jockey for position in the lineup that makes you look better than others? If you are in a music group or band, do you fight to grab your fair share of the spotlight? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you have a monster problem. I’d encourage you to immediately ask the creator of all things for an emergency monster extermination in your life. Feeling the need to grab the spotlight is not of God. That feeling is actually a tool God’s enemy, Satan, uses to deceive us.
Monster extermination is an easy job for God. I’d encourage everyone to keep God’s number handy for a quick call when we sense the monster lurking in our life.
