1 Peter 5:8-10
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.”

And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”
Use God’s word to win victories within your own heart!

“My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise.”(v. 148)
We are usually too busy for meditation, too busy to sit and soak in a passage of Scripture and let its truth gradually unfold in our minds. But often the most beautiful jewels are buried the deepest and will never be seen by the casual reader or the academic studier, but only by the one who takes...Read Full Post »
