Satan Comes To Steal, Kill and To Destroy. 


“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


The thief wants to steal your harvest and everything that God has prepared for you. Satan wishes to steal your joy and rob you of your peace. Satan desires to kill you and destroy your dreams and destiny. The enemy wishes to distract you and keep you from pursuing your God-given purpose. In fact, the enemy wishes to lure you away from pursuing a closer relationship with God. 


Satan wants to contaminate the soil of your heart. The enemy wishes to taint the ground of your heart and entangle its soil by magnifying the cares of this world. Choose to focus on God. 


The enemy wants to weigh you down and distract you from pursuing your purpose. Satan wants you to magnify your fears instead of trusting God. Satan wants to isolate you. Choose to trust God and you will not wither. Satan wants to keep you wandering in the wilderness. Choose not to wander. Submit your heart to God. 


Like the children of Israel, wandering in the wilderness — stubbornness will keep you wandering in cycles. Pride will keep in bondage. Rebellion will keep you out of the promise land. Satan wants to keep you wandering. 


The enemy wants to sift you like wheat and keep you withering in the desert. But Christ came to give you everlasting life and abundant life here on Earth. Christ destroys every generational cycle that you may face. Christ wants you to pursue everything that He has established for you. Choose to seek God and pursue everything that He has in store for you.
