1 Peter 5:8


1Peter 5:8 “STAY ALERT! WATCH OUT! YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL PROWLS AROUND LIKE A ROARING LION, SEEKING SOMEONE TO DEVOUR.” The devil is continuously searching for someone to devour because he can only prey on those who give him a foothold by yielding to his temptations. Temptation itself is not a sin. Jesus was tempted by the devil in every way possible but He never gave in. The devil came to tempt Jesus when He was at His weakest, after a 40 day fast. Today’s passage tells us to STAY ALERT. Temptation will come to you when you are most vulnerable. When you’re discouraged, lonely, tired, frustrated, confused, overwhelmed or overworked – WATCH OUT. Stay close to God, walk in love, speak His Word and be blessed!

God bless and lots’a love,

Pastor Warren Retzlaff
