God: put a perfect plan in place…..
John 10:10 (KJV) “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”.
Individually we have all gone periods of our lives where the trauma that we have endured have been more than we could bear; some of the things we bore took us to the point of death and we made it through by the Grace of God.
When we look at the reading today we see that the enemy of our soul has an intention to steal from us, to kill us, and to destroy us without any remorse; so there is no need to ask when things happen, “why me”. Your adversary has identified you as a threat and came to make good on what he specializes in.
The great news we have today is that even as we have an adversary, we have a friend and His name is Jesus. He introduced Himself as coming so “that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. No need to question why you are alive; Jesus was fighting for your life.
I think you know who has got your back and why after so much trauma and stress you are still alive. Acknowledge your friend and give Him the praises due to His name. Glorify your God in heaven.
