The destroyer is like a roaring lion, prowling around, circling your wagon, as it were. His ultimate hope is to steal your faith in God. He wants you to think that God doesn’t care about you and you’ve made too many mistakes in life, to go forward in victory. He’s actually quite vicious in his attempt. However, read the verse below. Jesus defeated this enemy and shows us how to as well.
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.
(1 Peter 5:8,9, NIV)
