1 Peter 5 verse 8 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"

The Lord has told us we have an enemy, the devil. He tries to oppose everything we do for the Lord. He attacks ferociously those who are trying to serve Jesus. In my eighteen plus years of serving the Lord, my battles with the enemy have been many..and often come disguised as something good. Many people don't realize the enormous conflict that we are in daily. Eternity hangs in balance for the souls of those people walking around you. Heaven or hell? Satan will do all he can to destroy the effectiveness of the sold out Christian..He will attack your relationships, your health, your finances, will even use other Christians to come against what you are trying to do for Jesus. Chapter 5 verse 9 of 1 Peter tells us "Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world." It is hard to resist when you are weakened by the trials of this world, but the Lord Jesus will give us strength to overcome.

Hold on to Jesus, and He will see you through the attacks from the enemy.

Romans 16 verse 20 "And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."
