SCRIPTURE: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” – 1 Peter 5:8
Today’s fire scripture is a familiar one. As Bible readers, we often do a quick reference to the enemy’s agenda but forget to consider the carelessness or nonchalant attitude of the owner of the garden. Those who plant vineyards don’t look away. Rather, they keep looking back to tend and keep the garden, making sure that the weeds don’t overgrow and subdue the main plants. Else, they risk losing their bountiful harvest and their labour would be in vain. In summary, the farmer is often vigilant and watchful.
Unfortunately, the farmer or the owner of the vineyard in this case was so relaxed that he slept off! This could be as a result of tiredness, or being given to too much sleep, or physical and spiritual carelessness. Hence, he didn’t know when the enemy came and left. He woke up to see that the enemy had entered his territory and done an evil thing. I pray for you, that you will not sleep an evil sleep, in the name of Jesus.
A man’s life, family, business and other endeavours are like a garden well-kept and carefully watched over. If the owner now falls asleep, it gives the intruder, the enemy a free access, to come in and do as he desires. Here, the Bible tells us that he came in to sow evil seed and went his way. That means, introducing negative things into the original. A kind of pollution and contamination, with the final aim of destruction. It is an evil thing!
What has the enemy done in your life? How did he succeed in doing it? What has he stolen or tampered with? These and many more are the questions that could be asked in this instance. But thank God that we have Jesus, the Only One who can restore what the enemy has stolen or tampered with in the life of an individual.
This is the beginning of the process of recovery; that you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Then you can ask God for forgiveness over your days of ignorance which made it easy for the enemy to enter into the garden of your life. In case you are born again, all you need do is to go before the Lord in repentance for your spiritual carelessness. Either way, the Lord is able to forgive you and restore in multiple fold what has been stolen or destroyed, in the name of Jesus.
You also need to become more watchful and sober. Satan and his cohorts are forever roaming around looking for victims to devour. You must stand against every reinforcement of darkness and defend your life and territory by the power of God, in Jesus’ name.
