[The Glory Unveiled]
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. ( 1 Peter 2:8 )
The enemy prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. But the thing with the devil that is very different from the animal it is compared to is that, the devil will not scream out loud that he is the enemy and that he is coming for you; no! He comes disguised as an Angel of light; a friend, a brother, a spouse, a family friend or member etc. As such the scripture cautions us to be alert and sober minded. Otherwise we will be overtaken with evil and before we could say jack, we are in the ditch. In the verse nine (9) of this same chapter, the word of God shows us how to deal with the enemy. He says we should “resist” him. The enemy will always come at us through our desires…always. This is why we need to be alert and sober minded so that we can resist him. And we become alert by the word of God. It opens our eyes to the schemes of the enemy so that we are not ignorant of his devices. Study the word of God to be sober and alert!
Prayer_Bead: Saviour, Redeemer, Healer, Friend, Source and Origin of all things. Thank you for the anointing to know your word and to stand firmly in it, resisting the enemy. Help me to be alert and sober minded in you.
