THE 12th OF MARCH
JESUS IS THE SOURCE OF LIFE WHILE THE DEVIL IS THE SOURCE OF DEATH
“I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” – John 10:10
Nothing bad comes from God, as nothing good comes from the devil. Jesus came to give us life and not just any life, but a rich, happy and blessed life here on earth and perfect life for eternity, in heaven. Jesus told us that we will have troubles in the world (John 16:33) but He also told us to have peace and take courage, because He overcame the world and through Him we will overcome it too.
Our lives are blessed when we have the peace of the Lord in our hearts and we feel secure in Jesus’ love and protection, no matter what we are going through. The more we love the Lord and the less we love the world and what it offers, the happier we will be. Our problems come from interacting with the world that surrounds us. We must be careful to choose wisely in how we respond to the circumstances and people that we cannot change.
The devil is the source of all evil. His purpose is to “steal, kill and destroy.” One of the enemy’s most effective tricks that he uses often, is to make us believe that God is the source of the wrongs that are done to us. Another is that he wants us to believe that God wants us sick to teach us a lesson, or that the Lord has given us the trouble that we are going through to punish us. The truth is that the devil himself is the source of evil and wrong doing, blaming God is his cover.
Thank You Lord that You are the source of all that is good in my life. Please help me never forget that any evil that comes upon me is from the enemy who wants to destroy me and never from You. Thank You Lord for helping me to overcome every trial and for comforting me when I hurt. Lord Jesus, You came that I may have life and have it more abundantly. In You I have everything, no one and nothing can compare to You. Everything that is good and perfect comes from You and You are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow! Glory and honor to Your Name forever! Amen.
