Deception: A Primary Tool of Satan

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

1 Peter 5:8

How does Satan “devour” people? He primarily does this through trying to deceive people. At the end of John 8:44 it says “for he is a liar and the father of lies”; Satan is a liar and he wants you to believe his lies. Avoiding deception is why putting on the armor of God is so important because it provides protection against Satan’s “fiery darts”, which are primarily his deceptions that he is lobbing against us. May we seek Him to be our armor!
