( C ) Home burglaries
Why do Christian couples and families have so much trouble?
Satan fully intends to destroy my marriage, myrelationship with my family, This is a reality of spiritual warfare!
No honest man or woman of God will deney that the devil makes major assaults on their marriage and families.
Why is satan so intent on breaking up families and church’s because they reflect the nature of God!
Today we need to say wait a minute!
Im not giving up on my calling
My son my daughter
My wife my husband
My friend myfamily
My potential in life
Satan has no feelings of sympathy for you
If you don’t resist him he’ll rip you off every week all year every year!
Jesus can revive your fire
Renew your relationships
Your call can bloom again
You can recover the faith that satan stole from you
God can revive faith in our souls if we ask him! He will bring faith back through His word!
Romans 10:17 17 Sothen faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The only question is Do we believe God will recover stolen property? Or do we think our situation is impossible!
Ah Lord God -- Ah Lord God -- Behold thou hast made heaven and earth By thy great power and outstretched arms there is nothing too hard for thee there is nothing too hard for thee
I bought a book some time backcalled, Dumb Crooks. It was full of stories about thieves who were not too bright¨Chumorous incidents. For example, one guy was siphoning gasoline from a someone¡¯s motor-home. If you¡¯ve ever done it, you know that sometimes you get a little gas in your mouth. Well, this poor guy got the wrong hose. He got the sewer hose!
Right here in Ionia, Michigan and intoxicated robber called the policebecause a service station attendant refused to hand over the cash.
The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti at 7:50 a.m., flashed a gun and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn¡¯t open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren¡¯t available for breakfast. Theman, frustrated, walked away.
We laugh about these. But if you¡¯ve ever been the victim of a robbery or attempted robbery, it isn¡¯t funny. Lady in Gas City didn¡¯t think it was funny when an armed robber asked her for cash.
Did you ever have something stolen from you? I would imagine that most of us would say yes to that. You can¡¯t live in this world for very long without encountering athief of some sort.
I remember having my favorite jacket stolen form me while I was in high school. Just a short time ago, I bought my wife a beautiful pin, shaped like a butterfly. She left it in a motel room while we went out somewhere and it was gone when we got back.
Someone broke into our church in Cedar Rapids and stole a VCR, TV set and CD player.
Book thieves: They take from 200-500books a year from the average library¨Cnational loss is well over $25 million a year!

From a new hotel in NYC, in the first 10 months, 38,000 spoons were taken; 18,000 towels, 355 silver coffee pots and 1500 silver finger bowls were snatched.
AD IN NEWSPAPER: TO WHOEVER STOLE THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER FROM MY 1970 FORD STATIONWAGON: WHERE YOU¡¯RE HEADED, YOU¡¯LL NEED IT!
Said the FBI to the bank teller after the same bank was robbed for the 3rd time: ¡EDid you notice anything special about the robber?¡" ¡EYes,¡" was the reply. ¡EHe seemed to be better dressed each time.¡"
In the spiritual realm, a kind of stealing is going on in many lives that is much more serious. Satan is in the business of ripping off...
