Overcome the Thief
Today I would like to talk about John 10:10. This verse clearly explains who the Devil is. The Devil is a thief, a killer, and a Destroyer.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10
The enemy can only do what we allow him to do though. He uses our mouth, our lifestyle and our thought life to defeat us. One thing we cannot do is pray one thing and then cancel it out with our tongue. But we have dominion or power over Satan. We find this promise in the Word.
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
We need to take care when we pray that we do not cancel our prayer out with our tongue. After we pray we need to carefully choose the words we say when we speak about the situation we prayed for. We should be careful not to be double minded in our prayers and our words.
