THE ENEMY WANTS TO STEAL
OUR PEACE AND OUR JOY
John 10:10 says,
The thief comes only to steal and kill
I came that they may have life
and have it abundantly.
The two things the enemy tries to steal
from us each day is our peace and our
Nehemiah 8:10 says,
the joy of the Lord is your strength.
John 14:27 says,

do not be afraid.
It is clear based on Scripture that the
Joy and Peace that God gives is not the

not give up.
God’s peace exceeds anything we can understand,
it guards our hearts and our minds in
Christ Jesus Philippians 4: 7.

In this world you will have trouble.

We can keep our Joy everyday with
