Steal, Kill, and Destroy

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

We must never forget we have an enemy who is on his job everyday. I am not one of those people who blames the devil for everything. We give him too much credit when really we should be taking a look at ourselves. However, he is always busy. Always setting traps for us. Always tempting us. Always trying to find ways to steal from us, kill us, destroy us and the people we love. Sometimes he does all three at the same time to accomplish his goal.

The devil is not your friend. He is a liar and the truth is not in him. He will do all he can to keep you away from GOD, away from your greatness, away from the good things the LORD has for you. He is jealous because he knows GOD loves us and unlike him, we can spend eternity in heaven.

He will trick you. He will give you all the things you feel you need. The things which will keep you from GOD. If it is drugs, you will have it. If it is money, you will be rich. If it is fame, you will be famous. But read on the dotted line before you make a deal with him. Just like those commercials we see on t.v, at the end when the announcer is speaking really fast about the side affects of the different drugs. If you listen closely, you may not want to take those meds. Satan is the same way. He will never tell you the drugs, the money, and the fame will keep you from GOD and send you to a hell that was never meant for you. You can have all of that and follow the LORD. No it will not be easy but JESUS says through Him we may have life, and have it to the full. What HE gives us, HE adds no sorrow to it.

Don't let your guard down. Pray without ceasing. Seek the LORD daily. Get into the LORD'S presence where there is fullness of joy. Don't let the devil steal, kill, and destroy you. Your father is KING and you are royalty. Q
