Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
Do you wonder why bad things always seem to happen to you? Does it seem like the same addictions and diseases keep coming back for you? This is no coincidence, see Satan is looking to devour you. We are in a spiritual warfare, our struggle is not against the flesh but against the evil forces of this world (Ephesians 6) those evil forces are Satan and his demons looking to destroy you
You might say I don’t believe in that spiritual stuff, well Jesus spent most of his ministry casting out demons (Matthew 4, Luke 11, Matthew 8, Mark1, Luke 4) If you deny the existence of Satan and demons, then your denying the Word of God and Jesus ministry.
Jesus said The Thief (Satan) comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But Jesus came to give us life ( John 10:10) How does Satan accomplish his goal? Simple he sets up traps and snares that lead us off our path of righteousness. You give in the the temporary temptations of the flesh but lose your eternal soul. What does it profit to gain the whole world and lose your mortal soul ( Matthew 16:26)
So what can we do, be strong in The Lord, put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6) Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7) use your Weapons of Warfare (2 Corinthians 10:4) in Jesus Name Amen
