Hawks And Lions

April 4, 2012

One morning, I watched a rabbit nibble grass in my backyard. He was on the small side, with brown flecked fur and a cotton-puff tail. Suddenly, a hawk sliced through the air as fast and precise as lightning. With talons outstretched, he snatched for his prey. But the rabbit recognized the approaching danger and sped to safety, just inches ahead of the hawk.

Like the rabbit that spotted its predator and scurried away, we as Christians need to be watchful so that we can evade our enemy. “The devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Satan wants to devour us by winning us over to his ways; he does this by toying with the truth (John 8:44) and trying to deceive us (Gen. 3:1).

The devil’s schemes reflect his dishonest nature, and his tricks are meant to catch us off guard. In response, Christians should be alert and clear-headed (1 Peter 5:8). Living in this state of active readiness helps us discern false teaching (1 John 4:1-3; 2 John 1:7-11) and overcome temptation (Matt. 26:41).

Today, watch out for your spiritual predator. What kind of lies is he whispering? How is he tempting you? Resist him, and he will flee (James 4:7).

The devil is cunning, deceptive, and sly;
He’s clever; he tricks us to swallow his lie.
But his crafty methods we’re sure to discern
If we make God’s warnings our daily concern. —D. De Haan
The first step on the way to victory is to recognize the enemy.

Read: 1 Peter 5:5-11

The devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. —1 Peter 5:8
Bible in a Year:
1 Kings 17-19

Wow, birthday last month and my FReeper anniversary this month. Seven wonderful years. Great people. Okay, on the garden test:

You Are Successful
You don't give up easily. You are both stubborn and resilient.
You are high achieving. You perform well no matter what situation you're in.

You can be quite academic in your approach to things. You are scholarly and bookish.
You are self-confident and undaunted by challenge. You are one nervy person.

Hi Kath, hope your weather is fine...Michigan has had a mild one this year...thank you global warming....

You Are Grateful
You enjoy every moment and every experience you are given. You see life as a blessing.
You think it's good to get outside your comfort zone and change your perspective.

People often misunderstand you. You are more of an optimist than you seem.
You think the world is a bright and colorful place. You see beauty everywhere.

I didn’t find any of those gardens appealing. None of them had any vegetables.

I was thinking the same thing. I guess it’s a southern thing. When someone mentions a garden here, it means beans, tomatoes, onions etc. Those pictures were just yards.

You Are A Rose Garden
You have an ethical code that you live by. You think it's important to be a good person.
You are idealistic, and you don't really care if your ideals are unrealistic.

You are a complex and deep person. There are many layers to who you are.
You seek meaning and purpose in every part of your life. An empty life terrifies you.

YOU ARE A RENAISSANCE MAN!

You Meaner Beauties of the Night

You meaner beauties of the night,
That poorly satisfy our eyes
More by your number than your light;
You common people of the skies,
What are you when the sun shall rise?

You curious chanters of the wood,
That warble forth Dame Nature's lays,
Thinking your voices understood
By your weak accents; what's your praise
When Philomel her voice shall raise?

You violets that first appear,
By your pure purple mantles known,
Like the proud virgins of the year,
As if the spring were all your own;
What are you when the rose is blown?

So, when my mistress shall be seen
In form and beauty of her mind,
By virtue first, then choice, a queen,
Tell me, if she were not design'd
Th' eclipse and glory of her kind?

Sir Henry Wotton

You Are Content
You seek balance in your life. Extremes make you uncomfortable.
You are sensitive to criticism and discord. You think people should check their egos and try to get along.

You are positive, optimistic, and downright sanguine. You see the world through rose colored glasses.
There's something special about the way you move. You have a natural grace that others immediately notice.
