Until recently, I believed the devil was a lion. Absurd, I know… but I also know I am not alone. 😛 Many believers are daily in running battles with the devil, they hear him roar and they run for dear life, thinking he can eat them up. I have news for you, that old monster is just a masquerader, all he is able to do is roar, he is so scared of the Jesus in you. All you have to do when he roars, resist him, and he will flee from you.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around *like* a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. ~ 1 Peter 5:8-9
Some encouragement for the new week: be bold, stand firm in the faith and resist the devil, he will flee from you. Have a victorious week.
