Raised Alert Level

22 12 2007

It was the weirdest thing, yesterday I had to kill a black widow spider in my garage. Shoot! I had never even seen a live black widow, let alone one in the corner on my garage wall right next to where my wife always walks to get into my truck! It kind of creeped me out for a minute.

It was a vivid reminder of how the sworn archenemy of our souls lurks in unsuspecting places waiting to pounce on us. 1 Peter 5:8,9 says it like this:

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”

If we understand that the Author of all good things came to give us a better life than we’ve ever dreamed of, then we also need to be reminded at times to stay aware of the evil one’s attempts to steal, kill & destroy us.
