Summary: Encouragement in the value of your life.
One of the most precious things God gave mankind is life. If we would take time to look around not at people but at the things created by God we will see that in all of His creations He has placed life. Life in the trees themselves; life in the grass itself; life in the water; life in the air. . . this is why people like the spring and summer months those months magnify the life in God’s creations. In the spring and summer months we get to see life as God created it to be; we see life as God intended it to be at its highest peak in all of its wonder and magnificent glory.
Unfortunately there are destroyers of life; trees have diseases that destroy the life in them; you can find dead grass; dead birds (life in the air); dead fish and whales and so on (life in the water). And yes there is a destroyer of the life of a man. That destroyer is man himself, there are more men, women, boys and girls destroying their own lives then there are murderers of mankind. How are they destroying themselves – by listening to Satan and all of his workers of evil.
I want to make a plea to you today; please. . . . don’t destroy your life. God gave you life to enjoy; He did not mean for you to put it in the hands of another man or woman who has NO compassion or concern for you, more or less for your life. Those who are just concern with filthy lucre as the bible calls it, lucre meaning monetary gain. You can’t keep putting your life in the hands of those who do not embrace the value of your life, one way or the other. When they look at you they should see more than just someone helping to keep them in a job, helping to keep their status with their peers, helping them to keep money in their pockets; or looking at you as a way of keep provisions in their lives. This is Satan’s way of making or keeping your life miserable in a terrible state. There are two things Satan desires out of a miserable life; 1) for you to hate your life. . . . one of the greatest creations of God; and 2) for you to believe God does not care about you. In the name of Jesus I speak that your eyes open to these trick of the enemy and for God’s wisdom to come in concerning this mystery.
John 10:10 says:
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The thief in this scripture is Satan. He comes to kill, steal and destroy every good thing God has created. Any spirit, person or thing that does not promote life is considered to be evil and an enemy in the eyes of the Lord. In John 10:10 the Lord is saying He came to promote life in a more abundant way. Abundant meaning marked by great plenty (as of resources). Don’t be so willing to loose your most precious gift to the thief. Don’t fool yourself Satan does not really want it; he just don’t want God to have it. In eternity your life will have no value to him; but in eternity with God your life will give God GLORY and PRAISE.
Matthew 24:42-44 (King James Version)
