Let’s look back at week 3 of Basic Training, where we talked about the preventative maintenance of our spiritual lives.
1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.”
During our activity of building a protective case for our delicate egg, we saw that some designs worked and some didn’t. We were trying to prevent our egg from being damaged by the drop but some of the designs had flaws and could not sustain the height of the drop. Thank God the Word of God has no design flaws and always protects us from the enemy who is always out there on the prowl looking to destroy us!
We must make sure we are constantly keeping our spiritual lives alert and staying in the Word, which is our preventative spiritual maintenance against the attacks of the enemy. If we stay alert and on guard at all times through the Word and the power of the Holy Spirit, we will always have a strong spiritual foundation to protect us!
