"The thief (Enemy) comes not, but to Steal (your peace), and to Kill (your happiness), and to Destroy (your faith) but I (Jesus) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
I am sure you all know how it is to have people against you.
In this world, the Bible tells us, that satan roams like a roaring lion, waiting to devour.
There is a particular person who reads my Blog simply to tear it to pieces..
Today a friend reminded me of the Bible story of Joseph.
Joseph's father, Jacob, loved him more than all of his other children?
To show his love, Jacob made his son a beautiful coat of many colours.
This stirred jealous hatred in the heart's of Josephs brothers. So they set out to do him harm.
Note I placed a question mark after the fact that Jacob loved Joseph more than the others.
Why would this be?
There had to be a reason?
Was it because Jacob loved Josephs mother more, than his other son's mother?
Or was it because Joseph was always a person who also cared greatly for his father?
We may never know.
However, we do know, that Joseph's heart was right with God.
And, God continued to bless Joseph, on and on.
I believe the lesson here is:
"What shall we then say to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?"
So,it is always best to leave treacherous people, to God.
