Lord, May we all be as patient as you were to us, as we pray for those to turn to you, as the one who can save them from there sins, just as you saved us from ours.

Father, I surrender to you, all things that distract from you today. Help me to see what is good, is right,is pure,is Holy. Let me see your goodness in the midst of a fallen world. May I see through your eyes. Amen

The Lord tells the Israelites under Joshua’s leadership, Do NOT Fear, for I go to prepare the way before you to fight the battle. Are trusting him today, to continue to fight our battles? Are we praying for victory in his name, and how he wants that to look like? Are trusting him and believing him completely? These are the questions I need to be asking him daily, that he might give me wisdom, to fight the battle on his term, not my own. Forgive me Lord, when I fail to do that.

God has given us all the weapons to fight the battle. Most all are defensive weapons, but only one is for offense. That would be the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. May we use all wisely, in the the strength of the Lord, and not foolishly in our own might, less we fail. Give God the glory, not ourselves.

Praise God, we have a friend in Jesus. We sin regularly, and he forgives regularly. There is nothing you can’t go before to confess. He already knows, anyway.

What are we to do in these troubled times, that we live in? Really, we are not the first people, to go through difficulty. What does God say about this through his apostle Peter? 1 Pet 5:5 says….GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE ………Therefore

It is not our wife, husband, mother, father, brother or sister, boss or coworker, who is our enemy.

It is Satans highly organized army that is against us! Fortunately, those who are in Christ, God has given us the tools we need, to defend ourselves, as well as go on the offensive. We are not alone, as we, the Church, resist and conquer, one soul at a time, as the Gospel moves forward, and calls people into the Kingdom of God, for his Glory, not our own.
