Scripture for Today

John 10:10 A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. (Msg)

Have you ever had any property of yours stolen before? Something you treasure so much that was taken away from you before you could realize what's going on. How did you feel? Sad, angry, confused maybe! That is how it feels when something you have worked so hard to build is been destroyed. Maybe in a fire or by someone or even by an emotion. 

The scripture made us understand that their is a thief whose duty is to kill and to steal and to destroy. That thief is the devil. See, the devil hates your peace, he hates your joy, he hates your family, he hates the fact that your alive, he hates everything about you. He has no love so he is ready to devour. We are in a spiritual battle with the enemy who is seeking so much to do these hurtful things to us.  

When we were in Sunday school we had a pictorial example of the devil and he was always seen as the ugly man with the long tail between its legs. In fact when I got to realize that the devil doesn't look that way later in life it was difficult to reconcile at first. The devil wouldn't appear to you physically, he uses people who have a great influence on you. He uses people to steal from you, to destroy relationships  and steal your joy.
Don't hurt yourself, don't hurt people around you thinking they are the devil. The devil is the real enemy, he is the one you should fight. This battle is spiritual.

Prayer: Father, I rebuke the devil in your name. I pray for a restoration of everything he has stolen from me.
