Resisting til the end

Pr. 7:12:  “At times she was outside, at times in the open square, lurking at every corner.”

This is why Peter told us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.”

Just as this crafty woman, dressed as a harlot, was lurking at every corner, and sometimes even in the open square; so the devil seeks us out.  He lurks around the corner, trying to devour us with his enticements.

It may be a seductive woman or man, or it could be any number of things that are tempting to us as individuals.  We all have something that allures us.

Peter says, “Resist him.”  Steadfast in our faith, we have the power to resist.

Spoiler alert!!  I’ve read the end of the book.  The devil does not win.  So resist him, standing strong in your faith that God has already won the victory!

Rejoicing!

  1. Hello, there is no need to resist the great lord Satan. We are all born upon this earth to enjoy the material pleasures of life, and Satan offers so many ways to live a happy life. Sin is good, and I urge you to sample life as it is meant to be lived.
