Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. (1 Peter 5:8, 9 NLT)
Satan prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. In other words, he is moving around restlessly, and stealthily looking someone to destroy. I wonder if he sleeps at all. Satan wants to destroy you, your family, your business, your career, your spouse, and if possible destroy everything you have. The most important of all is to destroy your relationship with God. Therefore you must be strong in The Lord.
The scripture says God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV). Thus you don’t have to fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. (Psalm 91:5, 6 NIV). God has given you power to defeat all the abilities of the enemy.
Jesus said “Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.” (Luke 10:19 NLT)
I came to encourage you to be strong and courageous because God has given you power to over all the power of the enemy. Study the Word of God, Fast and Pray effectively, take time to grow your faith, and get closer to God, Who is the Source of your strength. The devil may prowl around like roaring lion but he cannot come near your dwelling. Only be strong and move forward.
