“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Peter 5:8-9

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Stay alert!

Watch out for your great enemy, the devil.

He prowls around like a roaring lion,

looking for someone to devour.

Stand firm against him,

and be strong in your faith.

.

– 1 Peter 5:8-9 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

We are urged

to be sober and clear-headed,

because it puts us on guard against the evil one.

.

There is always need to be watchful

against the assaults of the devil

– that liar, detractor and tempter,

who will pounce on us if we lower our guard.

.

If we are strong in faith;

if we adhere to our Christian principles;

if we truly love God above all,

above ourselves,

above everything else;

then we shall be able to resist the attacks of the devil..

.

QUOTE…

.

"He (the devil) moves round each one of us,

like an enemy who has us surrounded

and is checking the walls

to see if there is some weak, unsecured part,

where he can get in."

.

– St. Cyprian

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul,

for You are my support, my strength, my protection.

My Saviour, I need You – help me overcome temptation and deliver me from all evil.

Forgive me, Lord God.

thank You, Lord God.
