Spiritual Warfare: 'Greatly Encouraged by Strong Faith'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, April 27, 2022

So we have been greatly encouraged in the midst of our troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives us new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord.
— 1 Thessalonians 3:7-8 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I have lived so selfishly and self-centered, and when I live like that, it's easy to end up in my own pity-party, sad and depressed. Thank You for reminding me through this verse that I should be focused on serving and helping and praying for others, and that when I do this, Lord, it gives me the strength I need to endure my own problems and pains. Help me to set the right example in this area in the future. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
