Spiritual Warfare: 'God Can Protect Your Home & Possessions'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, January 12, 2023

Satan answered the Lord, "Haven't you given Job a reason to fear God? Haven't you put a protective fence around him, his home, and everything he has? You have blessed everything he does. His cattle have spread out over the land."
— Job 1:9-10 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, help me to be more like Job. You put a wall of protection around him, his family, and his property, and You were also the source of his prosperity. I pray for that same hedge of protection for my family and my property. Help me to use my life, resources, talents, and position to lead others closer to You and bring You glory. Use me — like you did Job — as a source of great encouragement to those in my sphere of influence. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
