Recognize your enemy.
You have an adversary that creeps
around waiting to attack you. This means you must be on
guard at all times, not because you’re fearful but because
you’re disciplined. Be wise enough to stop allowing bad
decisions to halt your advancement. When you venture out
apart from Me you’re left without the defenses you need.
Excitedly anticipate your obedience bringing good results
and My encouragement will overtake your insecurity every
Most importantly, be disciplined and stay on
guard. Your enemy the devil is prowling around outside
like a roaring lion, just waiting and hoping for the chance to
devour someone. – 1 Peter 5:8 (VOICE)
