1 Peter 5:8 NASB "Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."I was singing Christmas carols as I began! Today's verse reminds us about the enemy and how he is seeking someone to destroy! As I stopped to do a little Christmas shopping, I was singing Christmas carols and in a great mood but before long, I stopped singing and began to get a "baa humbug" attitude. Shoppers were bumping into me, I saw people being disrespectful of the store keepers and I began to fall into satan's trap. All he wanted was to rob me of the joy of Christ's Birth. I took a moment and prayed against the scheme of the devil that was robbing my joy. I began to sing again and smile at the people passing by, to spread some Christmas joy! It always comes down to choice, we can let the world/satan rob us or we can choose to hold firm to Christ, no matter what. peace, tom
