Everyone is a copycat?

12 December 2014, 20:42 Michael Mbuko

"Do not copy, even if you want to copy, make sure its Christ you are copying" Every lifestyle is a product of a person's attitude which have circumstances attached to it: good or bad. God has an attitude and devil too has, he is the master counterfeiter.

A devil based attitude have its thought pattern funneled directly from hell, it is so worldly and decayed and is being revealed in our lives or that of the person sitting beside us or behind us. Craving to copy fleshly men's lifestyle instead of craving to search for that which makes you different from the pack is the beginning of acquiring devils attitude.

You are birthed uniquely and that uniqueness came with a unique personality, a unique attitude and also a unique circumstances but you grew up to start craving to be like the worldly men and women you see in the TV, heard and read about. I hear most of you say "am not copying" but your lifestyle is not different from the pack, your appearance and character to begin with.

You saw their money, beauty and success and desire it all without knowing that you are only being baited; all those things are illusions and the direct target is your soul. So craving to become wizkid, Psquare, Don Jazzy or D'banj, Tonto Dike, Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga is copying their every lifestyle, personality and attitude inclusive, we will always attract the circumstance attached to such awkward personality at the expense of our soul and spirit: no wonder your heart knew no peace, no joy, no love, no security, most times you copy and don't know the demon behind each lifestyle as you get possessed and wonder how arrogance, pride, high temperance, extravagance, and sexual immorality had so much hold on you that you can't shake them off.

Lacking the source of your problem you grow in impatience, selfishness, confusion, insecurity, anger and sorrow. What a life, many of us are ignorance of this.

Discover your uniqueness and do not Copy, even if you want to copy, make sure it's Christ you are copying. Copy and paste His life into my life, let the Bible be your guide.
