Not too long ago the Lord gave me a beautiful song to write called When the Lion Roars. He later reminded me of this time we spent jotting down the lyrics and gave me what I call a 360 moment. He shared with me how to identify the source.
1 Peter 5:8 states,
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
I remember always thinking ‘how can we compare the enemy to the Lion of Judah….’ Take note that the verse says “LIKE a roaring lion”. We know that the enemy is a copycat. He takes what God has created and perverts it. Be vigilant in recognizing the source. Because when the true Lion roars He is going to release such a sound into the atmosphere that’s going to empower us to face things we have been hiding from, break chains we thought were unbreakable and impossible things become possible in the strength and will of Him who sends us. Stay alert so that you do not become devoured by deception and lies the enemy whispers to us. Do not permit the purr of the enemy to become so loud that you mistaken it for the roar of the King.
