THOUGHT OF THE DAY.
“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy,”
This is a very known passage of scripture, a scripture that gives us insight into who the enemy is and
what drives him. The plan is very clear and we know what he is about.
But how many of us know the last part of that scripture which talks about another plan, Yeshua’s plan
for us. Let’s take a look at it,
“I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)”
I love this! He wants us to enjoy life and have it to the full. Despite what our circumstances say, the Lord
wants us to have abundance, He wants us to enjoy life!
Are you experiencing these things?
If I am honest with myself I don’t look for those things enough. I don’t demand them enough!
That doesn’t mean a life without trials and challenges.
Those things will come but there will also be victory, there will be peace, there will be
freedom, there will be reconciliation, there will be forgiveness a whole host of other things.
His plan for us is good and only good.
And the thing we need to realize about this is that the Lord’s plan is stronger than the enemy’s plan.
Yes his plan is all bad but he doesn’t have the final say. The Lord has the final say and He says, He has
come so we may have life and enjoy life and have it in abundance!!
The enemy would like us to believe his plan is our reality but he is a liar. The stuff he stole will be restored,
and his weapons will not accomplish what they were designed for. They are powerless against us because
the Lord is our Shield and Protector.
Yeshua has the final say over what our lives will be, not the enemy.
Have a great weekend friends…..
