The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 NLT
A thief is someone who takes your possessions or services without your consent. In other words, a thief is someone who violates your space. This thief however, wants to do more than a regular thief. Robbery is a violent crime. When someone dies during a robbery, that thief could be charged with felony murder, not manslaughter. That is what the enemy wants to do in your life: kill your witness; kill your ministry; kill your influence.
The thief wants to take from you using force. That is the only way he can kill and destroy you. Jesus, on the other has a different purpose. Jesus said that He came to give life. Not just any kind of existence, but a life that is full. He wants you to experience a life that is guided and led, by the Holy Spirit; a life that has value in the kingdom of God. Mathew 20:28 says, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” If you want to experience that life, it can only be found in Jesus. He will give you life to its fullest. That does not mean a life without challenges but it does mean a life of power that can overcome any obstacle.
Thought for Today: Don’t allow the enemy to destroy your life.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
