Stay alert // 13-02-19

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 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 ‭5:7-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Just the sound of a lion’s roar can literally paralyse other animals making them easy prey! Satan’s strategy is always to roar at us, to use fear to stop us in our tracks and we need to be alert to that. The more we give our worries and cares to the One who cares about us, the less the devil can use to induce fear in us! When I know that God is for me and that He loves me, when I believe His promises and trust Him with my life, the easier it is to stand firm against the enemy! Bold faith leads to bold courage. The devil might prowl about LIKE a roaring lion, but as a believer, I have got THE Lion of Judah, Jesus, with me 🙌🏼
