Protective Love

The Lord Jesus Christ loves you with all His being.  He proved that love by laying down His life for you.  However, the enemy hates you with his entire being.  Listen to God’s warning:

“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.  Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour” 1 Peter 5:8

God also points out to us the enemy’s strategy.  He says,

“…They count it a pleasure to …(entice) unstable souls…forsaking the right way…These are springs without water, and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved… (They promise you) freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved” 2 Peter 2:13-15; 17, 19

Prayer:

Thank You, precious Lord, that You are aware of the enemy’s methods and I can turn to You for help.  Help me to take Satan’s strategies seriously, but to rest in Your protective love.  How blessed I am to be “In You”.
