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. John 10:10 KJV
One of the items on the Devil’s (The Thief’s) main agenda is to steal your ability to hear. When we hear the Word every day through our time with Him, believe, act on it, stand on it, and walk in His wisdom, that is being alert of his agenda! You are a threat to the Devil when you hear the voice of God all the time…and respond.
There are other voices trying to call out over His voice. The Devil, our Enemy wants us to hear him, because if we hear him and listen to him, then he’s got us!
8Be of sober spirit,be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
Satan walks about “like” a roaring lion. Satan may roar like a lion, but he is in a cage. He is a poser. An intimidator. Close him down.
Just remember the Lion of Judah roared his way out of the grave on the third day. Silence the Devil’s voice that calls for your defeat!
Will the “thief” put thoughts in your mind?! Absolutely! Daily, weekly, and every time you turn around he tries! Reminding you of your past, your failings, your sin, your mistakes, your weaknesses. However, Jesus, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, says that your past doesn’t determine your future. His plans are to prosper you and bring you hope. He is a God who came to move mountains of impossibility in your life. He has given you the keys to the Kingdom. The Kingdom is righteousness (right standing with Him), peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit!
