Bishop Eddie Long says the devil has been messing with his mind.
"The devil told me to stay home," Long says in his New Year's Eve message. "[But] God says, 'I've already done everything I'm going to do. I'm just waiting on you to catch up to what I've done.'"

If I was going trying to prove something, I'd lay here. I said God ain't through with me and sometimes you need to see the skinny Eddie and the big Eddie and all that. It ain't got nothing to do with physical appearance, it's what in your heart ... You are a Scripture ... I want to see you struggle. I want to see you fight the devil and get victory," Long said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Long stepped away from his congregation at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in recent months due to an unspecified illness.
