In Old Testament cities, there were always watchmen on the walls. They would walk the walls day and night, constantly looking at the horizon for looming dangers and attacking armies. Their job was to warn those within the city walls of impending danger (Psalm 127:1-2).
Your life and family are like a city. God has built walls of protection around you. But you must regularly walk your walls and look for ways the enemy is trying to breach your life in Christ. To destroy you and your family.
Scripture is clear: “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). That someone is you, me and our families.
The devil’s name means divider. Adversary. Accuser. Slanderer. His job description is destruction. To kill, steal and destroy your life (John 10:10).
But God created you to be a major protector of your life and loved ones! Jesus told us to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to lead us away from temptation (Matthew 6:13). In order to be protected from Satan’s snares.
And to protect those we love the most as well.
Watch and pray daily for God’s protection over your life.
And become a watchman on your walls.
