1 Peter 5:12 Stand fast in it.
May I always stand fast in your grace, O God, for “the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (v. 8). He presses me from different angles trying to lead me astray. He does this subtly through people and things around me. This principle, “stand fast in it,” is simple, but not easy. So give me wisdom to see when I’m being misled, insight to see when I’m being deceived (even by my own sinful reasoning), and strength to say, “No,” to temptation. May I always stand strong in your grace – your undeserved love – against evil in order to thank you for sending your Son to forgive me with obedience and service. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
