In 1 Peter 5:8, Peter likened the Devil to a prowling lion, but note a small but important word: he is like a roaring lion; he is not the lion. We serve the Lion of the tribe of Judah (see Revelation 5:5). The Devil is dangerous, but never forget that he is also defeated. Jesus told us that hell was created for the Devil. His eternal place of punishment was never meant for humans. So the next time the Devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.
