John 10:10 NIV
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
The thief that Jesus is referring to in the above verse is the devil. If you didn’t know already, satan hates Jesus followers and he will always try anything he can to try to make them lose their peace. He doesn’t want them to enjoy their lives or their relationship with Christ in any way. The good news though, is that Jesus has already promised victory to those who continue doing His will. If you’re facing challenges, take heart! It’s part of the Christian journey, but Jesus will help us to overcome and grant us peace and joy if we will continue loving and obeying Him.
Isaiah 54:17 NIV
no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
