Spiritual Warfare: 'God’s Word Is a Weapon Against Evil'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, February 3, 2022

So then, take your stand! Fasten truth around your waist like a belt. Put on God’s approval as your breastplate. … Also take salvation as your helmet and God’s word as the sword that the Spirit supplies.
— Ephesians 6:14, 17 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, remind me of Your truth the instant I need it. Help me to make a habit of being in Your truth on a regular basis, so its principles become like second nature to me. And help me to act righteously in everything I do, so I can bring You great glory. Satan and his forces are out to get me. Enlarge my faith so that Your protection is big enough to cover me completely. Let it be wide enough and thick enough for me to win my battles for Your kingdom. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
