Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world
1 Peter 5:8 NKJV
In the famous words of Suga Free, “If you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready!” If you are not familiar with him then please, do NOT google him. Let’s just move on!
Over the last couple of months I have been very straightforward with God about what I desired to see change in me so that I could have a more peace and joy filled relationship with Him and the people around me. It wasn’t until last week that I noticed that the prayers, focus in Scripture, and application of these Scriptures in my life had caused the very things I prayed for to be physically manifested in my life.
I was overjoyed! As I ministered to others I had an opportunity to share my testimony with a few people. It went something like,
“I was feeling this way and now I am feeling this way because I allowed the word to work in my life by doing this…”
Not that I’m being secretive, that is just the template of how I was able to share the glory of God while helping others find a way out of their slumps.
A couple weeks ago a familiar Scripture came up in my studies, 1 Peter 5:8 (written above). I automatically assumed the attack would be something in the area that I had struggled with previously so I put up my guard with those things and kept it pushing. The enemy found his way around that and went for something I wasn’t paying much attention to…ok, he went for several things I wasn’t paying much attention to.
While the hit may have come in a different way than I expected, I’m so glad that my God loved me enough to warn
