There is only one Lion, and that is Jesus Christ: THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”.
1 Peter 5:8 (KJV)
The devil cannot walk up to you and run riot in your life. He cannot attack your health, finance, marriage, business, ministry, or anything else that has to do with you. If that was possible then he would not be walking about “[. . .] seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8, KJV). If he had the freedom to, he would simply walk up to anyone he chose and devour him.
Yes, the devil does walk about like a roaring lion in order to create fear in people with his roar. But those who know that the real Lion of the tribe of Judah is Jesus Christ Himself (Revelation 5:5) are never intimidated. They understand that the devil has been stripped of the power of death (Hebrews 2:14). They also realise that the greater One is in them and that they have overcome the wicked one (1 John 4:4).
It is as if you are watching a film of a lion roaring from the comfort of your room; of course you would not run in such a situation. You know that the lion is not real. You would stay seated and keep laughing, enjoying the movie. This is the same attitude God wants you to have when the devil comes. Simply ignore him because you know that he is not a lion. He is only like a lion. It is the lion that bites; the image of a lion cannot even devour an ant. There is only one Lion, and that is Jesus Christ. The devil is just a counterfeit, trying in vain to imitate a lion to create fear in you. Stand firm in the light of the world knowing that you are a world overcomer.
This does not mean that the devil will not show up. But whenever he shows up, you are well equipped to use your authority and claim the blood that has redeemed (Ephesians 1:7) your life, your family, your job, your children, and your finances. Cover everything that has to do with you with the blood and the devil will take his baggage and flee. Your victory is guaranteed.
1 Peter 5:1-8
Thank You Jesus!
