THOUGHTS FOR YOUR DAY.

God is good and the devil is bad ALWAYS.
John 10:10 KJV
"The thief cometh not but for to steal, kill, and destroy but I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly."'
That's a pretty clear statement as to who is on our side and who isn't. If what we are facing steals, kills or destroys it is coming from the enemy, NOT GOD.
We must be careful not to blame God for things that He didn't do. The enemy will constantly try to get you to blame God and in so doing cut off your source of help. If he can make you think God is your problem or the creator of it you will be less likely to approach God in faith for a solution.
God is always our answer, never our problem. He is ever ready to help us, to strengthen and guide us. Even if we have opened the door for the enemy to attack the Lord will help us to adjust and repair. He is there to forgive if we sin, He restores when confess our sin and He gives us the ability to repent, to change course and do that which He can bless.
The last phrase in our text "have it more abundantly" could be translated "might hold and advantage". The life of God in you is your advantage. His presence, His nature and His anointing in you is your advantage. As the Apostle Paul put it, "if God be for me who can be against me"? Who can successfully stand against you? Ps 116 says "The Lord is on my side". Heb 13:5-6 tells us He will never leave us or forsake us, that we can boldly (with confidence) say he is our helper and that need not fear.
He is not our problem, EVER.
He is for you, in you and with you. ALWAYS!
Look to Him, run to Him and stay with Him, He is your Shepherd and He will see you through.
ENJOY LIFE WITH HIM TODAY.
