Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8
Your adversary the devil is prowling about like a roaring lion. Don’t underestimate his power.
Satan is an enemy you need to respect like an electrician who has respect for the wires that carry deadly voltage. He knows where the insulation is, and he knows how to handle electricity. If an electrician loses his respect for this power, he is going to be in serious trouble.
Everything may be going great for you right now. You’ve got money in the bank, a good job, good health. You’re dancing through the forest, picking wildflowers. But behind a bush is a lion so deadly, he can pounce on you and swallow you whole. You’ve got to be vigilant.
