MORNINGTIME 2501
 
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, KNOWING THAT THE SAME AFFLICTIONS ARE ACCOMPLISHED IN YOUR BRETHREN THAT ARE IN THE WORLD. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, AFTER THAT  YE HAVE SUFFERED A WHILE, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you . To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:8-11. Satan is sneaking about looking to devour someone, so be on guard, be on watch, know his ways, wiles, and his will. When you understand what he's up to, you can simply stand, stand strong, and stand Victorious, all in and through Christ. Keep in mind, standing strong against Satan doesn't mean a trouble free life. The Lord will allow sufferings of various types, styles, and afflictions to "make you perfect" in all of your ways, "stablish" your face like Flint, to move in a specific direction and not be deterred, to "strengthen", you in your resolve to Follow Jesus, The Christ, all the days of your life, and to "settle" you onto and into the solid Foundation Of Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone of our Faith. Satan himself has no rights to beat up on a Christian. But God Himself has every right to use anything and anyone, including Satan, to bring us to a place growing closer to CHRISTLIKENESS in our daily lives and activities. To grow more in Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity is a top priority. Our time here on earth is NOT to just get by, or hope we'll make it by the skin of our teeth, and hope Satan doesn't catch us, no, we're here to Praise and Honor Christ, our Victorious Redeemer as we SHOW the world Christ in us with His Attributes flowing from us. Christ led the Way, as we Live The Way, to show others He IS The Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that He will also change them from sinner to Saved, that we ALL may, Be Blessed.
