Staying awake

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1 Peter 5:8

It seems that so many of us as believers are not truly aware of the danger of sin.  The Bible says that the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, “seeking whom he may devour”.

Jesus has already won and he is on the throne, holding all authority, but that does not mean that we will not get attacked; Jesus himself was attacked by temptations. And yet He overcame… He did not sin!

We must stand alert, bold and unwavering.

The scripture says to be sober and vigilant… Watchful!

We must hold on to the Word of Life: Jesus!

If we want to overcome temptations, opposition, trials and doubts we must soak in the Living Word of Life! When Jesus was tempted He responded by speaking scripture: Luke 4:4, 4:8 & 4:12.

Imagine it as a war zone, where the enemy is on the advance, the last thing we could think of would be to doze off on the front lines!


We are warriors in a spiritual battle, fighting for the cause of Christ, and we must not give up.

Jesus promises to be with us till the end of the world!!

Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:20b

We cannot be sleeping, we must rise and fight.

Lord let Your fire make Holy, these lips unclean, shine down in all your glory, awaken me.
