Spiritual Warfare: 'Be Undaunted!'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, April 26, 2023

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world." [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]
— John 16:33 AMP

Today's Prayer

Lord, some false teachers say that God won't let anything bad happen to Christians, but Jesus said we will surely suffer. This world is full of trials, stress, pain, sorrow, and many other scary things. That is a fact of this current world, according to Jesus. But I praise Your Name, Lord, because Jesus came in the flesh and overcame, and I know that through Him I can overcome, too. My confidence isn't in my own abilities, Lord, it's in Jesus. It's in His victory that I rejoice and celebrate that my position in Christ lets me have the same victory. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
