A Cog in the Machine
1 Peter 5:8 (KJB) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
The devil’s agenda is meant to be a cog in the machine. In fact, right now the devil has his eye on your life and is looking for a way to “trip you up” and cause you to fall flat on your face. He knows when he has you down and out that he can more easily influence your actions and thoughts.
The devil wants nothing more than to bind your spiritual gears with his dark and devouring agenda.
A man, woman, and child of God can stand spiritually firm and tall inside the supernatural power of a personal relationship with God despite any outside dark spiritual influences covertly at work in this world. Through the indwelling presence of God, a person can be both sober and vigilant and carefully observing for any sly tricks and spiritual ruses and antics employed by the dark god of this world.
A child of God is not easily intimidated or caught by surprise by the revelry and roaring of satan and his wicked band of dark warriors in this world. In fact, it makes a genuine child of God even more bold and forceful with the truth, knowing that God has already won the battle and God has perpetually triumphed against the darkness at work for a season in this world.
