Watch Your Enemy

1 Peter 5:8-9 (Good News Translation)

Share

Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy, the Devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Be firm in your faith and resist him, because you know that other believers in all the world are going through the same kind of sufferings.

Always pay attention to everything around you and situations around us and that involve us be alert and watchful for the enemy, the devil is always around you waiting for one of you to fall for his evil ways and tricks as he prowls like lion after his pray

Sin comes from the satan also known as the devil he is waiting to lure you into his traps and devour you

Be firm in your faith in Christ and push him away resisting him by staying and living fervently in The Lord and in the word

You’re not the only one going through this for all believers in Christ are Satan is always working trying to intimidate all around the world into his traps especially believers in Christ for we all suffer in Satans evils


Verse Thoughts

We journey through our Christian life from grace to glory.. from justification to glorification – from the cross to the crown and as we travel through life there are many lessons that we all must learn and the Holy Spirit is our teacher. The Word of God provides all the instructions that we need for life and godliness for our faith rests on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself being the chief Cornerstone.

On our journey through life we are called to be humble and hopeful and to show a loving concern for all of our brothers and sisters in Christ – but we are also called to be on our guard.. and to be watchful in this increasingly godless society. We are called to be sober, serious-minded and to remain spiritually alert to the wiles of the evil one.. because our adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Satan can dress himself up in many guises and disguises. He slithers into the lives of believers as the evil serpent, seducing those that are unprepared for his malicious advances.. and causing many to follow after worldly pursuits or fall into moral corruption. He sometimes disguises himself as an angel of light.. using doctrines of demons and a multiplicity of false gospel messages to cause many to fall into spiritual adultery.

He comes as the accuser of the saints and as the destroyer of nations – for he is the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning – and he comes as a roaring lion seeking to ship-wreck the faith of many Christians through fear, anxiety, worry and depression – weakening our witness; rendering us useless as ambassadors for Christ and stunting our Christian growth.

No surprise that we receive such a stern and vital warning against worry and anxiety and such a strong admonition to be spiritually alert, sober-minded.. vigilant and watchful – knowing that the devil is an evil adversary, who prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking an opportunity to devour us.
