I Peter 5:8
For your great enemy, the devil, he prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
These "Twins of destruction" can never be allowed to exercise their power in our lives.
Recovery / Salvation requires the commitment to stay focused and aware of our own emotions and thoughts. When we become aware that our heart-thoughts are drifting away from the truth.........when we are aware that our wants and desires fill our thoughts, telling us that we have need to take control of our lives, that should set off the bells and whistles in our spirit. Such thoughts should set off all the alarms that we are headed toward dangerous behavior. When this happens, we need to take those thoughts captive and not allow them to produce death in us.
