Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
Winter is upon us here where I live. We in the south do not get the brunt of winter weather like folks do in my native state of Ohio or even in Iowa or Illinois where I used to live. Never the less, when it comes in the form of frozen precipitation you need to slow down driving and stay off the roads entirely if possible during icy conditions. The familiar sign you see before crossing a bridge on the highway is the same as my title. Be careful. I have seen cars hit the bridge and spin out so it is not a joke.
Our life has cautions and warnings too found in God's word if only we would be wise enough to become familiar with the Bible and heed His advice. He is all wise and tries to shelter us if only we were not so stubborn and wanted our own way all the time. Satan is real and he is roaming around trying to deceive and destroy us. His tricks and lies are many and he has subjects on earth that do his work for him some knowingly and others not so much. There is evil and there is good, period. Satan is evil and God is good. Satan lies and schemes and God is truthful. Who do you choose? We can not have our feet in both worlds.
Today if you know deep down in your heart what is right and wrong then tell Satan to get behind you as you plan to follow the Lord Jesus Christ.
PRAYER: Lord you are good all the time. I know Satan is out there working in all facets of our lives from the school house to the White House. Help me be discerning of his tricks and stand on the promises of God. Help me not be led astray by the lies of the enemy. In Jesus' name. Amen.
