My daily reading took me to John 10 v 10 this morning, a verse that has always excited me.
Today however I’ve been meditating on the first part, the steal, kill and destroy part.
For something to be killed it must first be alive.
For something to be stolen from a person they must first own that thing.
For something to be destroyed it must first be in existence.
The enemy wants you to live a life of sickness and poverty; he wants to steal, kill and destroy these aspects of your life.
So you must already be in possession of these things, you must already have health and prosperity, they must already be in existence and alive in your life.
They must be my friends or the enemy would not be able to try and steal, kill and destroy them.
Yes, in your life ALREADY you have all the health and prosperity that you will ever need; you ALREADY have all spiritual blessings (Ephesians 1 v 3) and you ALREADY have all that you need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1 v 3).
You have life and life in abundance already; that is what Jesus came to do for you (John 10 v 10).
The enemy can only steal what you already own!
If a burglar came to your house to steal your goods (that you already own) you would resist and put up a fight would you not?
Well then, if the devil comes along and tries to steal your health and prosperity put up a fight, or in other words resist him (James 4 v 7).
Submit to the truths of God that Jesus came to bring you life in abundance (John 10 v 10) and that God wants, above all things, that you live in health and prosperity (3 John 2).
Submit to God and resist the devil, and you can see that health and abundance that Jesus died for flowing in your life.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ, and thank you that He came for me to have life and life more abundantly”.
John 10 v 10…..The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly
