“Be sober, be vigilant, for your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion to see whom he might devour.”
1 Peter 5:8
We need to be watchful and alert, for the enemy is sly and devious in his ways and will try to find openings in our hedge to creep in on areas where we are vulnerable.
As we dwell in His Presence, we find our shelter and protection under the wings of the Most High where no devil can touch us (Psalm 91). This is not a place where we can “in” and “out”, but a place to abide in continuously.
Let us ask the Lord to let His light shine on places where we are vulnerable so that we can take our stand in those areas. We are to be clothed in light to withstand the enemy, putting our trust in the Lord of hosts! He is our victory.
At the same time, we are praying for discernment to identify our enemy and not be caught by his deception.
Remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood:
Ephesians 6:10-13 (KJV)
10” Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
In view of this Scripture, guard your heart to not start judging people or pointing the finger, or getting offended! Your fight is against the devil and his forces! But rest assured, Jesus has already won the victory. You just have to take authority over the enemy and not be moved by his schemes to invade your mind and shake you emotionally.
As we ask the Lord to warn us, He will show us the strategies of the enemy in advance – even in our dreams, so that we are forewarned and forearmed!
Bless the Name of the Lord who is mighty to save and protect! Hallelujah!
