Overcome Your Enemy Today

Overcome Your Enemy Today
Lions at Khao Kheow Open Zoo, Chonburi Province, Thailand - 2012
Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around LIKE a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 AMP
 
These days there is so much teaching about how powerful the enemy is that people are giving in to the fear and throwing in towel! That can change today!
 
Many years ago I spoke with a person who had hunted for lion in Africa. The professional hunter, who was the guide, explained to this person how lions often hunt.
 
He said, a lion will locate a vulnerable looking victim and while remaining out of sight begin to walk in circles around and around the potential meal. While doing so the lion will roar as it wags its head back and forth to make his roar sound bigger and as though there are several lions roaring.
 
As the prey hears the sound of the overwhelming roar coming from what seems like everywhere, it finally gives up and lays down consumed with paralyzing fear. The lion then walks in and you know the rest…
 
Now read 1 Peter 5:8 again with this in mind. He is LIKE a roaring lion. It doesn’t say he IS! He attacks the victim after fear has replaced faith in the believer.
 
2 Timothy 1:7 says; For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].
 
Let God’s truth fill your heart today with power, love and a sound mind!
 
Much love,
