watch your step

There are times when fear is good.
It must keep its watchful place at the heart’s controls.

Our life’s journey can be misleadingly easy and smooth, dulling and lulling the senses into a state of blissful complacency…
yet waiting patiently and watching intently from the shadows…
our ancient adversary is hopeful for each and every misstep…

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
1 Peter 5:8-9
