Spiritual Warfare: 'Jesus’ Purpose Is Life, and Satan’s Is Death'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, March 23, 2022

Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
— John 10:9-10 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I know You are the way, the gate to heaven, the pathway to God. I choose You and the way of salvation and life. Deliver me from the purpose of my enemy: stealing my joy, killing my future, and destroying my hope. Help me find safety and protection in my service to You. Lead me to a life of satisfaction and joy in promoting You and Your kingdom ways. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
