Attack · Enemy · Faith · Grace

recognizing attack…

Be sober-minded; be watchful.
Your adversary the devil prowls around like a lion,
seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8 ESV
Be watchful…
he’s on a tear…
stirring up emotions…
instigating dangerous thoughts…
looking for ways to derail your faith…
paralyze your obedience…
or use you as a tool to attack others…
I’ve seen the adversary at work this week…
in others…
in me…
Even now… distraction… stirs feelings of inadequacy… emptiness…
But… however the enemy sifts
whatever thorn he sticks…
God says…
“My grace is sufficient for you…”
2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV
Stand firm in His grace…
by His strength…
and know you are not alone…
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.
1 Peter 5:9-10 ESV
