So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clear headed.1 Thessalonians 5:6
Be on Guard
We need to be on guard against the enemy’s attacks. Stay alert and be clear headed as this verse states. We should not be asleep like some are, but instead be ever so awake, ready to take up the armor of God (Ephesians 6) if needed. The world is asleep. They cannot recognize sin because they do not know God. If we know Him, we will be ready and awake against His attacks.
Spend time in prayer and Bible study everyday so you can prepare your heart and mind. If you do this, you will grow closer to the Lord and will be able to see when the enemy is attacking.
A Prayer to Remember
May I be on guard and watchful. Help me to stay alert and keep my mind clear so I can better serve you. Amen.
