Prowling Lion

 “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, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”- 1 Peter 5:8-9

 

We are all going through some kind of sorrow and some kind of trial. This is why we need each other because our enemy is prowling around trying to destroy us. There is power in numbers and prayer really works..with faith to back it up. To have brothers and sisters in Christ is amazing, to be adopted into God's family is a awesome thing also.

In this world we will have trouble, Jesus even said that and He has overcome the world so with each other we can overcome the pain and trials of this lifetime and one day meet in heaven and do nothing but praise our King.

Satan will come in many forms and many shapes, even when we are not aware, this is why we need to put on His armor to be prepared for all attacks. Also when we pray for each other this gets satan running. I don't know what I would do without my friends in Jesus. My brothers and sisters in Christ always pray me right out of lifes tough times.

One day we will be in heaven with our King, He will wipe away all our tears, let's see Satan stop that..He won't and he can't.

God is so good, even when we go through so many hard times He is right there holding us up in his arms.praise Him

It's those that don't believe; that I need to stay away from. Thank your for this beautiful Hub; if we give ourselves to God and let him lead us - through good & bad - he has the power, wisdom & devine mercy to comfort us in our worst times.

Bless you.
