A Daily Devotion for Monday, October 25


1Peter 5:8


Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

This holds so much truth. The piece I am really seeing is the word “alert.” It is easy enough to be self-controlled when I am not being poked at by fatigue, frustration, disappointment, etc. When I start to recognize these feelings, if I am alert to them, I am more likely to stay in control. When I begin to feel negative, my first reaction should be to ask God for strength.


Holy Father, you are here with me, always. I need only to ask for your help. You give me the protection of self-control, but sometimes I forget to use it until it is too late. Create in me a clean heart, comfortable and sufficient for your dwelling. Amen


Becky, transforming
