A Daily Devotion for Monday, Nov. 9


1Peter 5:8-11


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, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever.

There certainly have been times I have felt alone and afraid. It is easy to forget the devil is at work looking for these opportunities. These are precisely the moments I need to turn and fully face God, asking for his help. Before I do anything else, I need to turn to Him. God will give me the power to endure anything, if I ask. And we are not alone. There are others struggling, always. We all have been given the same promise of eternal glory. We are all together on the same journey, never alone.

Lord God, You are always here for me, here with me. You have promised me to be with me while I walk this earth, and for all eternity. I am so grateful, and I give my thanks and my life to you. Amen

1Peter 5:8-11 (8-9) Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are. When I read this part of today’s passage, I thought of my dear friend and those around the world suffering from depression because of the pandemic. This passage is so relevant to living in today’s world. I wish everyone could/would read it. We must remember to give our fears and worries to God, not the devil who will feed your fear and debilita…

1 Peter 5:8-11

 Lions, Tigers, are enemies because they attack the sick, the young or straggling animals, and they do so because they are alone, weak and not alert. This passage speaks volumes about  Peter’s  message to watch out for the enemy (Satan) and He saids it with such confidence and power. (Another passage to memorize.) sometimes when I feel alone, and away from other believers, it makes me vulnerable to Satan’s attacks. I am so thankful to God because I can seek other Christians for support.  Who knows many of them may be going through the same struggle.  The message  of 1 Peter 5:8 is that the enemy seeks those who he may devour ,people like me who wil…

1 Peter 5: 8-11


8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.


I know the devil is out there. He would love nothing better than to devour us all and pull us into his clutches. Some people would like us to think he isn’t real, but Jesus tells us he is. He worked on Judas to betray Jesus and he can work on us. We need to be strong and avoid sin.


Dearest Jesus, you gave us free will. Sometimes we are challenged to take the wrong path. Help keep us on the road to eternal life with you in heaven. Amen.

1 Peter 5:8-11


10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.


We all suffer during our lifetime, but my suffering has been very little compared to most, and miniscule compared to Jesus. Even so, I believe God is continuing to work to make me stronger, firmer and more steadfast in my faith.


Dear Lord only you know if I have more suffering to endure in this lifetime, but I am confident that my faith will continue to grow and to carry me through. Amen.
