The book of 1 Peter 5:8, says these words, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
What more evidence do we need than our news today, that something evil is stalking our world to devour all that is good. People are becoming afraid as the lion roams our streets, devours our homes, threatens our civility and order, where it always prevailed among us.
The question you ask is, what can I do? I’m not a person of power or influence. First of all, recognize that isn’t true. You have influence with God, who can influence everything. That’s why Peter in the next verse says, “Resist him, steadfast in the faith.” You have the power to resist this evil.
It’s time to pray.
