Daily Devotional: The Enemy Has a Plan Too

Prayer Starter: God, I choose Your plan, not the enemy's. Show me the areas where he is attacking me and guide me in defeating him.

1 Peter 5:8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

The author states, the Bible says we need to be "well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times."

"Temperate means 'disciplined,' sober of mind means 'serious,' vigilant means 'determined' and cautious means 'careful.'"


Too many think that once they are saved everything is easy, but Satan continues to attack you and press you hoping to distract you from your walk from God. Satan knows you are saved, but he wants to keep you from advancing in your walk!

If we learn to follow him instead of trying to be the leader we will get much farther in life.

Oh, yes! The closer we walk with God, the more the enemy attacks. We must be vigilant and recognize those attacks when they happen. Have a great day, Than!

Than, if satan isn't attacking then it means he already has you in his pocket!
