Dear Daughter of Almighty God
1 Peter 5:8 (ESV)
8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Notice here how it says that “the devil prowls around like a roaring lion.” It does not say he is a roaring lion but like a roaring lion.
The devil projects himself as more than he is. Would you be scared of a lion with no teeth, claws or strength no matter what noise he made? You would have no need to be scared would you, so stop being scared of the devil because Jesus disarmed him when he went to hell and defeated the devil.
You are to resist the devil when he comes roaring by using the Word of God. Jesus set the example for us by using the Word of God when he was tempted. There is life and power in God’s Word it is a living Word, don’t leave it sitting on a shelf.
You can resist, speak the Word and God will do the rest.
Your loving sister Amanda
