Daily Devotion - Episode 66 - The Thief Comes To Steal

By Devotable

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10 NIVWhy is it challenging to feel strong in faith and content with life?What makes consistent joyfulness eluding to so many of us in everyday life?Our spiritual health is not that different from our physical health. If we are inconsistent with or limit our sustenance for periods of time, it has a manifestation in how we feel. There is no denying it. It is a fact of biology.What is happening to believers to rob them of what they need most for a vibrant, faith-filled life?Jesus spoke to this dilemma, stressing the vital component necessary for our spiritual health.In Matthew 4:4, Jesus answers the temptation from the devil with clarity and truth for us all to cling to as if a life preserver. He says,"It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”This “thief” that comes to steal, kill and destroy is not easily recognized by believers today, compared to Jesus readily perceiving the danger and temptation of what he intended.What then is the thief coming to steal from us? Our time with God that is to sustain and grow our faith!Take control of your schedule and tell the kids, coaches, neighbors, and friends “no”, you will not be consumed and driven by what is starving you to death!As parents, may we stop allowing busyness to rob us and our families of what we need the most, daily and weekly - regular time with the Lord feasting upon His Word of life! If our schedules are driving us away from God, we are in peril!The frivolities of this world are passing, but the Word of the Lord stands forever!Read the full devotion at
