God commands us to be on high alert, warning us of the attacks we face from the enemy of our souls.
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 PETER 5:8
Since 9/11, our eyes have been opened to an enemy who uses terror as a weapon aimed at achieving our destruction. As Christians, we have an even deadlier enemy dedicated to our utter destruction, and yet we seem to be indifferent to the danger.
But God commands us to be on high alert, warning us of the attacks we face from the enemy of our souls. He has also given us instructions on how to not only defend and protect ourselves but also how to seize the offensive.
Ephesians 6:10 – 11 says, “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
Be alert. Be assured. And praise Jesus that the ultimate victory, through Christ, has already been won!
