Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. – 1 Peter 5:8 NIV
No one likes war and if we had our choice we would choose not to go to battle, but as a Christian do you realize war has already been waged against you? 1 Peter 5:8 tells us: “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 NIV)
The enemy wants to devour your joy, your peace, your relationships and most certainly your faith in God. Now, I don’t tell you this to frighten you. I’m telling you because I also want you to know that Jesus has provided us with every spiritual weapon to overcome.
We simply need to pick up those weapons and be prepared. When we choose to spend a little extra time with God, to not sleep in and go to church, to wake up a little earlier to do a devotion; it greatly impacts how prepared we will be to spiritual attack. So let’s not wait until trials come before we decide to build up our spiritual muscle, let’s get prepared by starting today.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for your protection and power in my life. I pray that I constantly seek strength from You all the days of my life. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.
What’s the best way you have found to strengthen your relationship with God and What’s one thing you would like to do more of to strengthen that relationship?
