1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

When rising from what I though was a relaxing night, the first thing I think of is a problem that I must address today and a cloud instantly comes over my head.  As I proceed to get dressed for the day, the cloud continued to linger over me.  As I was preparing to leave the house to run my morning errands, I realized that I had left myself open to Satan’s lies and was paying for it with the cloud of depression and bad attitude about my day although it really had not started yet.  As a result of the mood I had fallen into, I was more of an introvert that I usually am and there was no smiling at any one.
Starting the Day Right

Part of my morning ritual involves watching my morning inspirational program as I am getting dressed and this morning, I listened to the news and music from the radio. The cable was out again.  I never realized before how my routine usually insulates me from the usual bad news and noise that bombards us each day.  Please do not get me wrong, I enjoy music all kinds for most of the day.  But, I must say that some of what is being played today is garbage and that is the best way to describe it.

After taking my grandson to school, I sat down to read the Scriptures, pray, and peacefully drink my first cup of coffee.  It is truly the best time of the day for me.  As I read Hebrews, my spirits gradually began to rise as I received the Word of God into my spirit.  It wrapped around me like a warm blanket protecting me from continued attacks at least for that morning.  My depressed mood dissipated, and I proceeded to continue my day in a much better mood.

Be Ready

This transformation from a bad to a positive attitude about my day was directly related to how I allowed myself to let Satan bring lies to my attention before my feet hit the floor in the morning.  We are most vulnerable and open to attack when we are still drowsy with sleep.

You Can

I know it is impossible stop Satan’s attacks especially if you are trying to stay on the right path, but I do know that you can start your day with God Word, prayer, inspirational music, and positive thoughts so that the devil will not have an opportunity to defeat you before the day starts.  I am careful to start my day on a positive note regardless of what the devil puts in my head.  I have control of my thoughts, and I refuse to let Satan win.

Do not be a victim, Be a Warrior!

    So true which is something I have come to learn as a new christian. I sometimes fall out of the routine, but soon remember to keep vigilant. Great.

    I believe it is part of being human to experience times when Satan attacks with lies and for a time we may actually listen and find ourselves responding to the lie. I am never going to get out of debt, why do I keep eating more than I should and oh so many other lies. Believers must listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and strengthen their effort to respond when prompted. Lies still come to your mind, but it becomes easier to dismiss them and go on in the knowledge that all things work together for your good.
