The Devil is Waiting

1Pet.5 [8] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

A picture is worth a thousand words, isn't it? Often we don't realize the danger before us when we give in to seemingly "innocent" sins, or yield to temptations that we consider small. The devil is a hunter, and he has had thousands of years to perfect his technique. Just as a seasoned game hunter knows how to surpress his scent, hide himself, and "disappear", the devil is extremely talented in his ability to camoflage those things most dangerous to us. Only through pray and being led by the Holy Spirit are we able to dodge the crosshairs of the enemy. Don't be a casualty of war. How can we fight such a sly and talented enemy you ask? We can't, but God is on the other end of our radio, waiting for us to call in an airstrike and blow Satan to bits. Don't forget to use the power that's available to you.

Good post. I am afraid that many of us have made the mistake of underestimating our enemy!

I think we all do at times, because we can't see him. We can see the destruction he causes however, and it's always a sober reminder to me that it's but for the grace of God that I'm still here.
