Week 2; Day 5 – Protection

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of suffering.

1 peter 5:8

The chicks know their mother as their protector, there is no-one else to whom they can or will go. She alone knows them through & through and she will fight for them. There is no lion or tiger more fierce than that of a mother hen protecting her chicks!

We need to be aware of dangers, snares & temptations around us. If we know our own areas of weakness, and the shiny things which lure us away from the things of God, then we can seek help from our Protector.

Many times we are tripped up by things that we are unaware of and which we come upon unexpectedly. Other times it is the same old, same old thing. Whichever it is; we need to have the protection of the armour of God on.

We need the help of the Holy Spirit to overcome temptation. We need to know our help and protection is from the Lord and that if God is on our side then really who can be against us?

Thank You Lord, that You fight for us this day. Thank You that You are mighty and that we need not fear when You are by our side. Amen.
