Spiritual Warfare: 'Satan Traps People to Do His Bidding'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, March 3, 2021

Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.
— 2 Timothy 2:26 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, don’t let me be rocked to sleep by the enemy. Wake me up and help me come to my senses. Open my eyes to all the ways Satan and his forces have trapped and tricked me into doing his will, following his path, or being deceived by his twisting of Your commands. Show me the pathway to escape. Lead me back to You. Let me hear the voice of Your Holy Spirit as You guide me back toward righteousness and obedience to Your life-giving ways. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
