Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in your faith and in the knowledge that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering. 1 Peter 5:8-9 NIV
The devil is out in this world. Look at all the evil in this world. It does not come from God, but we do. We are chosen by God. The devil knows this and takes great pleasure in tempting us Christians. With Jesus, he is powerless.
Jesus reminds him of a better time. A time before he rebelled and was sent to the fires of Hell. He wants to take as many people with him as he can. He loves tempting us and sometimes God will let him, just to test our faith.
He comes to devour is what the scriptures say. The devil was defeated by the cross and all you have to do is call out the name of Jesus and he will leave. We will go through temptations. We will go through struggles. I would rather struggle knowing that my savior is right there beside me. Hallelujah!!!!
