Be Alert, Be On Watch!
1 Peter 5:8 “Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy, the Devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.“
We must always be ready and on the lookout cos the devil goes up and down looking for whom to tempt and bring to disrepute in front of our maker.
I believe this verse means we must remain conscious and awake, we must be aware of those things that seem to appeal to our subconscious, evaluate them and if they are not of God, then one must do away with such things.
1 Peter 5:9-10 (GNT) says “Be firm in your faith and resist him (devil), because you know that other believers in all the world are going through the same kind of sufferings. But after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who calls you to share his eternal glory in union with Christ, will himself perfect you and give you firmness, strength, and a sure foundation.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for grace to be able to resist the devil and be a partaker of
your eternal eternal glory in union with Christ.
