Let Them Roar
"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
There is so much we have to look out for on a daily basis. We need to make sure we are wearing masks and have sanitizer with us at all times. We need to watch out for our children and make sure they are safe from those who may try to do them harm. We need to be watchful as we travel to and from places, because not everyone is attentive as they attempt to navigate their vehicles and travel. There is so much we need to be watchful for and much of our being watchful can tend to become routine if we are not careful enough to continue to be aware. As we are on our spiritual journey, we also must be watchful for the enemy who is always trying to take us back and keep us down. The Scripture reminds us to, be sober-minded; be watchful. Our adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
The Lord Will Fight For You
“You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you.”
1 Chronicles 20:17 (ESV)
Each of us has battles we are going to have to fight. We will all have challenges we will have to face and mountains that we will have to climb. In the midst of these challenges and obstacles that we face, we will discover that it is difficult to get over these hurdles alone, and we will need help to make it successfully through these challenges.
The Lord Will Guide You
“The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.” Isaiah 58:11 (NLT)
None of us has made it to where we are on our own. Each of us has had the help from someone who was there to help us when we needed it to the most. Nothing happened in our life by coincidence, The Lord placed the right people in our lives and the right time, to help lead and guide us o the places that He had for us. We should never cease to thank God for those people He placed in our lives and give God praise for leading and guiding us always. The Scripture reminds us that, The Lord will guide us continually, giving us water when we are dry and restoring our strength. We will be like a well-watered garden, like an every-flowing spring.
"For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:" Proverbs 23:7a
According to the experts we can have up to 70,000 thoughts in a single day, and without a doubt that is a lot to think about in one day. Our thoughts are varied throughout the day to things like what are we going to wear, eat, drink, and other thoughts. Some of our thoughts are not as mundane as what we are going to do today, but some of our thoughts are deep that will cause us to go one way or another way, and it takes time to think through what we should actually do. Then there are some things that we do with little thought at all, because we do them out of habit, but it still causes us to think before we do them.
