Misrepresentation is another device that the devil uses since the Bible tells us that Your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
This means that he struts like a lion even though he is not a lion. So do not let his strut, mane or roar fool you and cause you to retreat or surrender in fear.
In addition, constantly pray for discernment and God’s guidance so that you do not fall for his ruses.
