I AM AN ENEMY OF THE DEVIL


I AM AN ENEMY OF THE DEVIL
Peter 5:8
.Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 







~~~Reflections~~~
Lions attack the sick, weak, young and easy prey. Lions choose victims who are alone or not alert. As with many predators, a lion may attack if cornered, if a human runs away, this stimulates their instinct to chase, or if a person "plays dead"
Standing still however may cause the lion to consider a person easy prey.

Lions are ready to pounce and devour their prey.
The devil being compared to the Lion. demonstrates the attacks we face, when we are being persecuted, feeling alone, helpless, suffering or weak, and so focused on our troubles and not keeping focused on the Lord.

Be watchful for the attacks from the devil.  This is when we are easily harmed spiritually, physically, mentally, or emotionally to Satan’s attack ,We leave ourselves open to attacks, simply by having lack of faith. So stay alert, keep yourself  surrounded by others who are believers, for strength.

 Resist the devil, stay steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. The God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, will establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Do what ever it takes, get rid of the Lion before he attacks. Shout Loudly the word, use any other action to appear larger, like praise and worshipping the Lord. Raise your hands to the Almighty! Jump up and down, as you would to make the lion retreat. Fighting back with the blood of Jesus on the cross, Using the Name of The Rock of our Salvation to call upon the Father and ask for mercy in Jesus Christ Name. this is the most effective way in to drive out the temptations,
