Father, deliver me from every deceit of Satan in Jesus name.
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light”. — 2 Corinthians 11:14
1 Peter 5:8-9
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
Every military commander tries to find out as much of the enemy as possible. This is why he always sends to collect information about the enemy (Numbers 13:17; Joshua 2:1). Similarly, knowledge of our adversary is very precious to us since we too are engaged in life long battle with the devil. That enemy (adversary) is Satan or the devil.
The truth in this passage about Satan’s mission are:
i. Satan is believers’ adversary. Verse 8
ii. Satan is walking to and fro, here and there, restless. Verse 8.
iii. Satan is looking for victims to kill. Verse 8.
The solutions to his wiles and missions are as follows:
i. Believers are to be sober. V.8.
ii. Believers are to be vigilant. V.8.
iii. Believers are to resist him (Satan) steadfastly. V.9.
iv. Believers should not feel that he/she alone is being afflicted. Satan is afflicting all believers in one way or the other. But God has given us grace and strength to make us stand strong against him and be perfect. 1 Peter 5:9-10
