1 Peter 5:8 ... Be sober, be vigilant ... because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.
He goes around as a roaring lion. Be attentive as to what the devil is ... do not be deceived by him.
There are two names for him in the above Scripture: 1> the devil .... 2> the adversary
AS a roaring lion ... his power has been taken away from him. He walks about seeking someone to devour.
Unfortunately there are a lot believers who'll let him devour them: "Come on in", they say, "we'll just entertain you tonight. We'll turn on the tv. and listen to all the programs you initiated ... all this sex and violence ... whatever excites us."
Is this you? We let our flesh dictate to us rather than letting the Word rule in our lives. We need to get our perspectives right.
