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)

Don’t focus on the thief but on Jesus. 

Don’t be fear driven but life driven. 

Life is stolen when you fear. 

Driven by a need to protect yourself. 

He comes to reassure. 

He is the reassurance. 

Enter through Him and Him alone. 

In Him is safety. 

He is where your life begins. 

Not only on the day you were born but everyday. 

Let Him flood you with His peace and His joy. 

By surrounding yourself with His presence. 

His presence is where you surround yourself with His thoughts. 

Allow yourself to trust in Him. 

Rather than the thief. 

The thief is a very real and present danger. 

He lurks around. 

Seeing who he can deceive. 

Yet He has the answer. 

Don’t look or listen to the thief. 

Let your focus be on Him. 

On Him alone. 

He is the greater one. 

He is the Creator. 

He is the good shepherd. 

Listen to Him, look to Him. 

Seek to please Him not serve your fears.
