Lifted up in their pride, he and his demons had the gall to hunt Gods throne, but they were soundly routed (Isaiah 14:12-15, Ezekiel 28:16-17, Luke 10:18). Now, as our adversaries,they hunt Gods people, trying to pick off the weak, the ailing, and those who have grown weary and dropped back from the herd. He is always looking for a way to manueuver us into a position by ourselves where he can leap out of nowhere to maul us. Once he attacks, he causes great pain but he does not go immediately for the kill. He pins us down and wounds us first. Even while in his grasp though, WE CAN CALL OUT FOR HELP,. We can, not all do!
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
