08/04 1 Peter 5:8-9
8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.
We are called people. We are called to study God’s Word so that we might grow in spiritual maturity. We are called to apply God’s Word and one way we apply it is to always be alert to the schemes of the devil. He wants to devour you and set aside your testimony. Everyone is suffering. Let’s get off our pity pots, read God’s Word, grow and be strong in focusing on Jesus so that we can withstand the schemes of the devil. Jesus loves you.
