1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
The first word that God tells us is to be “ALERT” Keep your appetites and passions under proper restraint or awake, also signifies; namely, to a deep sense of the certainty and importance of things invisible and eternal. We need to be sober even with the cares of this life. For when we are not sober our minds become intoxicated leaving us exposed to the enemy.
