Bible Challenge – 1 Peter 5

“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 (NLT)

We have an enemy that is always looking for ways to entice us with sin.  At anytime, if we are not careful, anyone of us can be caught in his trap.  Just because we think it could never happen to us, doesn’t mean it can’t happen to us if we are not careful.  I’ve seen and talked with people that have thought this and then what they thought would never happen … happened.

We need to take this verse very seriously. Letting our guard down just a little can cause us over time to become defenseless to  certain temptations and the next thing we know we are justifying certain beliefs and actions. Don’t get caught in the moment! Stay alert, and set boundaries that will protect the work God is doing in you and through you.

Today, focus on protecting these three areas, thoughts, words, and actions.  If you can set up boundaries in these areas you will be more alert to deal with the enemy’s attacks.
