Dealing with the Thief
Hey, what would you do if a man came to your door one afternoon with the sole intention of stealing all your stuff and he sounds pretty tough but in actuality he couldn't whip your 10-year-old in a fist fight? Would you let him in and let him have his way and rob you blind or would you throw him out on his ear? Well, when it comes to the Devil, he may look and sound ferocious like a roaring lion but in actuality he's a defeated foe. The Lord broke his neck at the cross and in the empty tomb. The Bible says, "Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world." The thief and the enemy of our souls has no power, authority or victory over a christian. Let me encourage you as a child of God to stand firm against the Devil. When he comes to steal from you speak the truth and send him packing. It's in the truth where you will find REAL HOPE.
