1 Peter 5:8

"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." NIV
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." KJV

As Christians we are to always be watchful and on the alert to the deception that surrounds us with well hidden traps. The deceiver is the evil one and seeks to get us off the true path in these ways: Subtly, through our senses and thoughts; masquerading as the truth with logical spiritual and religious philosophies; and, forcefully, through tribulations and trials that discourage us and cause us to question our Lord. Watch out for these traps, they are everywhere.

Heavenly Father, we are so aware that the deception in this world is so rampant that we are in danger of falling into it without the fullness of Your Spirit and the gift of discernment. Help us to know how critical it is to be watchful and alert. Keep our eyes open and our minds ready to stand firm in the Truth. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
