John 10:10-11 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (11) I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
It blows me away how many people including Christians have a misconception about the character and nature of God. A lot of people have confused the attacks of the enemy for God’s way of correcting and growing them.
We have to know the truth about God’s nature. God is good and He is good all the time. Notice in John 10:11 He says He is the GOOD shepherd. God is not the source of your problems, rather; He is the answer to them. Satan is the one who comes to steal kill and destroy but Jesus came to give life and to give it to you in abundance.
The Bible tells us in 1 John 3:8 that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. In other words, Jesus came to stop Satan’s plan to bring destruction to your life. Jesus wants to deliver you from every attack that the devil has for your life.
Some of the areas in your life that Satan wants to destroy are Marriages, Family, Relationships, Health and finances. Satan does not want to see you prosper in any of these areas. But the good news is Jesus does and He came to stop Satan’s ability to keep you from prospering in these areas.
James 4:7 tells us to resist the devil and he will flee from you. However, if you do not know that God is good and wants the best for your life, then anytime the devil tries to bring destruction you might think that it is God and just accept it, and if you accept it the devil won’t flee from you.
You must recognize that any attempt to harm you is Satan and God is on your side. So if you submit to God and resist the devil then the devil will flee from you. God wants good for your life so determine today not to accept anything less than God’s best for your life.
