I Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall
depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

As we start the New Year, we often take time to reflect over the Old Year, our failures
and successes, triumphs and defeats, trials, temptations and victories. We pray that we
will do better, and that the New Year will be more prosperous then the last. We look
forward to the New Year with hope, excitement and perhaps just a smattering of
trepidation.

As well we should; for throughout the ages Satan has beguiled deceived and seduced
both angels and men. The saying “misery loves company” is embodied in him. He
embarked on a path of deceit, ruin, torment, and eternal imprisonment. And he wants
nothing more then to seduce you to follow him down the same road of destruction.
Because of his rebellion he was removed from his former glorious position in Heaven.

This is why we must be ever vigilant, watchful, and discerning keeping our eyes on
Jesus and His precious Word. We must seek to keep our thoughts, bodies and tongues
under control. We must look with discernment on the things that are foisted before us.

Jesus told Simon Peter that Satan wanted him, so that he might sift him like wheat. But
He also told him that He had prayed for him so his faith would not fail. Luke 22:31,32

So as you enter into the New Year, don’t be afraid to embrace it. It is bound to be filled
with excitement, joy and challenges. Just remember to walk with the Lord, and be
careful.
