1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Reconnaissance is a mission to obtain information by visual observation or other detection methods, about the activities and resources of an enemy or potential enemy. In military operations, reconnaissance is the exploration outside an area occupied by friendly forces to gain information about natural features and enemy presence. The lion is the king of the forest. He strikes fear at the sound of his roar. However, if the strongest lion is matched up against the strongest tiger, the tiger will win, most of the time. You have to know your enemy. Know how he works, when he works, and what about you makes him successful. You have to be able to distinguish what the enemy is doing for your destruction and what the Lord is doing for your training.
