“Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Elohim, so that he exalts you in due time, casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you. Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:6-8)
Let’s face it, the devil isn’t after people who are already his. He comes to steal, kill and destroy, and frankly, why would he kill steal or destroy what belongs to him.
This is what we should get…that the devil deals with lust. He seduces with trinkets and stuff we like, and it is the case that the minute we decide to go another way; that is THE WAY, he is going to make it hard to stay there.
We should be careful to watch!
The word says, “Resist Him, firm in belief, knowing the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (v.9)
We should question then ‘the belief’ surely a life which follows prosperity doesn’t experience these type hardships and persecutions conveyed by stepping away from that life.
Today: Do the new thing….Messianic teaching…seek Torah.
