Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8This summer I plan to visit Yellowstone National Park for the first time. I am so excited. This park is teeming with abundant wildlife. Wild means just that, wild. Not tame. Not used to people encroaching upon their space. Tourists, bikers, hikers, and campers need to proceed with caution and follow the rules in the event of a grizzly bear encounter or some other creature such as a bison. They are not cute comic characters but can do major damage to someone who gets in their way.Satan is a big huge ugly bear in our world. He is out there and tries to appear like a harmless teddy bear enticing unsuspecting people that the life they are leading is not so bad, or what they are engaging in is their right, so it is okay. He is a master of deceit and trickery and lures the innocent into his trap. He tries to get others to change the word of God to make it more accepting of their sins. As long as we are on this Earth we have to be alert to the schemes of the enemy and resist him firm in our faith and belief in God and truth.Have you allowed the enemy to capture you and draw you away from Jesus? Are you still pursuing Christ or does He seem boring to you? Do you love Jesus or just church? Just some questions to ponder. Go out and stand strong and do not allow Satan to cause you to believe his lies.PRAYER: Sometimes Lord I find myself wandering on a path that could lead to destruction. I pray that I always look up and resist attempts by Satan to make me believe lies or hate others. I pray for those I know who may be caught in his trap. Deliver them from evil. In Jesus' name. Amen.
