Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/07/18

This week’s scripture is from 1 Peter:

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith. (1 Peter 5:8b-9a)

Satan knows his time is short and he is filled with rage. It spills into the world as a tide of darkness and evil, rising against those who belong to the Lord. Wickedness comes out of the shadows and spiritual warfare is loosed upon God’s faithful. Yet let us remember Him who is faithful, and stand firm in Him. Let us call upon the name of the Lord and resist the devil. Let us take up the sword of the spirit, the word of God, and strike the enemy’s lies with truth and cut down his wickedness with Christ’s righteousness. Let us stand firm upon the rock of our salvation for He is our strength, our shield, and our rampart. Against the Lord, evil cannot stand; against His authority, evil must bow. Praise God and stand firm in the faith.

May the Lord bless you to stand firm in Christ.
