Spiritual Warfare: 'Be Brave Because the Lord Is on Our Side'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, April 21, 2022

Be brave and confident! There's no reason to be afraid of King Sennacherib and his powerful army. We are much more powerful, because the Lord our God fights on our side. The Assyrians must rely on human power alone. These words encouraged the army of Judah.
— 2 Chronicles 32:7-8 CEV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I have been so fearful and worried in the past. I lay awake at night and imagine how things could easily get worse. Forgive me. Help me to be brave and confident because You are in control. You got this. You are all-powerful, and You are able to see me through. You are on my side, Lord, so please help me to be faithful and true to my covenant with You so I can walk in Your protection each day. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
