Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 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. Amen. 1 Peter 5:8-11

• Remain focused on Christ and resist the devils schemes.
• Remember the roaring lion is overcome by the Lion of Judah.
• Refuse to be a victim…Resolve to be a victor.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me the victory of the schemes of the enemy. Today, I pray for strength and overcoming power to be a victor. Help me to not give in discouragement, distraction or defeat. Help me to face the day with confidence and certainty. In Jesus Name, Amen!
