Be Careful!

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:12-13
Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Be Careful!Some doves were eating bird seed outside my window. I watched as a cat slowly moved toward them. The doves were not aware that the cat was close. I knocked on the window, trying to scare the doves away. But they ignored my warning.

1 Peter 5:8 tells us, “Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat.” The devil is like that cat outside my window. The devil tries to sneak up on us and catch us when we are not prepared.

Our Bible Reading today has good news for us. First, these verses remind us to be careful and not give in to temptations. Second, verse 13b says that God “will not let you be tempted more than you can bear. But when you are tempted, God will also give you a way to escape that temptation. Then you will be able to endure it.”

Stand strong against the devil and his temptations today! — NM

“So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil, and he will run away from you.” James 4:7

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank You for helping me stand strong against the devil. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
