I was praying over someone last night and as I prayed I saw the numbers 10:10; then they reversed position revealing a “new 10:10.” Then the Lord said,
“My abundant life is overtaking and arresting the thief that came to kill, steal, and destroy from my sons and daughters.”
There is a 10:10 (John 10:10) turnaround that is happening.
“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying (abundant) life.” John 10:10
God’s plan and purpose is overtaking the thief’s purposes that have been robbing many of God’s people from experiencing a rich and abundant life.
Once again I am reminded of what the Lord has been speaking to me so much this past season regarding fear: partnering with it unlocks and opens the back door that the enemy (thief) comes through. As God’s people are exchanging a spirit of fear for the fear of the Lord, which encompasses His perfect love (which casts out fear), it is evicting the thief from their lives and closing the doors that he’s come through.
John 10:7-9 say this,
“…I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.”
Jesus is the gate that we enter through, and as we allow Him to be the only opening (doorway) in our lives then we will experience good green pastures that the thief cannot enter. The foundation of the fear of the Lord is the gateway to many promises. It is the divine turnaround of John 10:10!
This is where we begin to feast upon the promises found in Psalm 23.
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the LORD.” Psalm 23:5-6
The thief may be present in this world but even in the presence of our enemies God prepares a feast of His goodness and unfailing love for His people. Jesus is the entrance gate to this place and the thief cannot come in.
This is a 10:10 turnaround that is evicting the thief, along with the fear and trauma that he has brought upon so many. The fear of the Lord, which fully encompasses His perfect and unfailing love, is being restored in His people’s lives. It is a holy SHIFT that is resetting lives and restoring promises and inheritances that were stolen.
Enter into the turnaround and the shift that releases rich, satisfying, and abundant life to you. Sow your faith into the fear of the Lord and enter into a fast from every other fear.
