“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet 5:8).
Being saved doesn’t make us immune to satanic threats. In fact, it makes us even more targeted! Of course, I’m not saying we should live in awe of the devil. Rather, we should be smart and aware of satanic interference, trickery and opportunism. We must be sober, vigilant and alert. We mustn’t be gullible. Not all tongues are genuine. Not all prophecies are genuine. Not all dreams are from God. Your nostrils must quickly “smell a rat” (or smell a devil)! Soberly evaluate every inspiration, message, revelation, prophecy or impression in the light of the Scriptures. Then you won’t be devoured as many are unawares today!
