Beat The Devil Up!
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
The way you beat the devil up is by making sure you remember the above. He has a job to do so expect him to be diligent at it. Also you have a job to do also and it is to Be sober minded meaning don't walk around thinking that everything will come easy. Life is not always easy and we are not always floating on cloud 9. Even while the enemy is prowling, seeking who he can destroy maintain your post, have your armor on, and make sure you are not the one to be destroyed. He has no power to destroy unless you give it to him. The word says he is prowling looking, seeking someone to devour. It did not say he is here destroying without any reason, he He is seeking, waiting for you to give him a reason to be successful at his hunt. Even when he is trying and testing you, Get up, dress up show up, and never give up. Get up and walk in the faith that you have, Dress the part put on the whole armor, show up and let him know that no matter what you will not stop serving God like the three Hebrew boys, and when he tries to come in like a flood, Never Give UP! Stand Firm, run your race, as it is not to the swift, It is to you who never give up and make it across! I encourage you and I encourage myself.
