Keep watchful and humble

‘And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.’ Luke 9:33

Let not those who are upon the mount depend upon their present warm desires and resolutions, but rather, pray to the Lord to keep them watchful and humble. The enemy is upon his watch and he gained great advantage of Peter after this and terrified him to a denial of his Master. It is written for our instruction.
But some are not concerned with these things. Instead of building tabernacles upon the mount with Peter, their hearts go more with the rich man in the Gospel, who would pull down his barns and build them larger and enjoy the good things of the world for many years. Alas, this, if you could have it, would be a poor portion. You must die and leave all, and what will the world be to you then? O that you may be wise in time and seek the things that are above, where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God [Colossians 3:1].
‘Simon, beware!’ the Saviour said,
But JESUS lives to intercede,
‘Satan, your subtle foe,
That faith may still prevail,
Already has his measures laid
He will support in time of need,
Your soul to overthrow.
And Satan’s arts shall fail.

‘He wants to sift you all, as wheat,
Yet, let us not the warning slight,
And thinks his victory sure;
But watchful still be found;
But I his malice will defeat,
Though faith cannot be slain in fight,
My prayer shall faith secure.’
It may receive a wound.

Believers, tremble and rejoice,
While Satan watches, dare we sleep?
Your help and danger view;
We must our guard maintain;
This warning has to you a voice,
But, LORD, do thou the city keep,
This promise speaks to you.
Or else we watch in vain.
