A Roaring Lion...

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

On Monday, a friend posted the following on her blog...

"I had been lying in bed in the quiet of the morning, thanking God for all of His blessings on my life, on my home. I thanked Him for the recent salvation of my husband and all of the joy and blessings that have come from this.

And then I was taken in my mind to the front yard of my home, outside in the snow, and there was Satan, the Devourer, with a terribly scary face, demonic look, circling about my precious home.

He had a body, but I couldn't see his feet. Because he was circling so very quickly, dashing from window to window trying to pry his way in, he had what I would say were short airplane trails behind him. Oh, but he moved so quickly! Darting here and there, going to my daughters' bedroom windows, even, while they slept and trying to get into their rooms.

Thankfully, he never did get in. God was protecting our home from the Evil One."

That was such a vivid dream and description, but also so true of how the devil is trying to get into our lives. He will try every angle possible and too often find a way in.

Unfortunately, for my friend, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer the next day.

We do have to remember something in times like this: Sometimes God allows trials in our lives so HE can get the GLORY! 

Kim, we're praying for your mom - and you.
