1 Peter 5:8 - Be sober, be vigilant; bcoz your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
The devil cannot just walk right up 2 u and rob u of your health, peace or family. He cannot just come into your life 2 enforce disease and destruction.
If the devil can do that, then he does not have 2 walk about “seeking whom he may devour”. He only has 2 walk straight up 2 anyone he wants 2 devour and devour him! But since the Bible says that he goes about seeking whom he may devour, the truth then is that there are people whom he "cannot" devour.
You see, the devil goes about like a roaring lion trying 2 stir up fear in people with his roars. But the people who are not devourable are those who refuse 2b intimidated by his roars bcoz they know that the true Lion of Judah, Jesus Christ (Revelation 5:5), has already come and rendered powerless him who had the power of death. (Hebrews 2:14, NASB) They know that the devil cannot just do anything 2 them bcoz the Lion of Judah resides IN them, and that He is greater than the devil who is in the world. (1 John 4:4) My friend, the Lion of Judah is IN u. He has given u rights, privileges, authority and power. He redeemed u with His blood. Therefore, everything about u and your life is redeemed by His blood. So if u are fearful about losing your job, cover your job with the blood of Jesus. If u are worried about your children’s safety in these days of terrorist attacks, plead the blood of Jesus over them. If u have received a bad report from the doctor, speak the blood over yourself.
Whatever u have covered with the blood of Jesus, God declares, “Protected! Redeemed!” And the devil flees when he sees the blood. And when he flees, he takes with him sicknesses, diseases, pains, sufferings, destruction and loss.
Once the devil knows that u know who u are in Christ and what u have in Him, his days of intimidating u are over, and u are numbered among the undevourable!
