2/20/13 Daily Devotion

1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

As we await the return of Jesus, we must keep watch. Satan knows exactly what his eternity has in store for him, thus his desire to take as many of us with him as possible. We must be alert and take notice of all that is happening around us all the time. When we let our guard down, when we do not take seriously the presence of Satan, when we refuse to believe he is real, he gets a foothold into our lives and moves forward from that point. Some people believe that he will come like ferocious animal and jump at our throats, but this is ridiculous. Satan is mischievous, but intelligent. He knows he does not need to jump at our throats, instead he takes us down one small step at a time. Are you alert and ready for the devil to come? Are you ready to thwart his attacks as you await the arrival of Jesus?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, make me more aware of the devil’s attempts to carry me away from Your presence.
