In 1 Peter the Bible tells us that Satan is like a “roaring lion” looking for someone to devour. Here in Alaska we aren’t very familiar with lions, but boy howdy do we know about wolves. There are all sorts of horror stories about wolves stalking and attacking people. Sounds like a good simile to me; our enemy is like a howling wolf looking for its next meal. Sometimes in our walk of faith the enemy uses the circumstances in our lives like a pack of wolves to surround us until we don’t know where to turn. We wonder if someone will ever come and rescue us. Hopelessness creeps in and we begin to doubt that we will ever experience a “happily ever after”. As Christ followers, though, we don’t have to live a hopeless existence. God hears our cries and will answer us. He has given us some tools or weapons to use against the encroaching foe.
