Prepare Yourself Each Day
“Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.”
1st Peter 1:13
Do you prepare yourself each morning to face the attacks of Satan that await you during the day? Did you know that each day Satan is waiting to tempt you with evil in all that you do? He wants you to always be anxious, fearful, angry, bitter, resentful, envious, deceitful, unloving, uncaring and have an overall negative outlook on life. If you leave your house each day with all of this negative attitude about life, you are a perfect candidate for his attacks. This is why you need to prepare yourself each morning with the Word of God, and a moment of prayer asking God to give you the wisdom and guidance to withstand these attacks of Satan. You need to prepare yourselves and make yourself aware of the presence of God in your life. This is one of the reasons I write my Daily Devotionals and send them to my readers each morning, as I want them to be encouraged and make them aware of the presence of God in their life. I want to prepare them for the attacks of Satan, and if they are able to withstand even one attack of Satan by remembering something I have said, I have accomplished my mission. Being in God’s presence each morning will transform you, and can change the course of a day where Satan had negative plans for you. By learning to seek God quickly, when we sense any attitude or behavior that is not Christ like, will help us prepare ourselves each day. Take just a few minutes each morning getting in God’s presence, and then you will be prepared to do battle with Satan.
