“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” -1 Peter 5:8
“…Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity.” -Ephesians 4:26-27
Keep watch and stay alert. Satan has been around for many centuries and he knows how humans operate. His Full Time job is to destroy us. He works around the clock,168 hrs per week, studying us and putting hurdles in our way. Satan hates God so he attacks God’s children in attempts to destroy us and to turn us away from God as he did with Job. But see what God says about this:
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” -Romans 8:28
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” -John 10:27-30
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” -1Corinthians 10:13
Be encouraged in knowing that God is greater all and He is actively working on our behalf. When temptation comes look for that way of escape and take it. Flee temptation rather than playing near it or walking towards it.
