Spiritual Warfare: 'God Leads & Protects His Faithful Servants'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, May 9, 2021

Leave the city of Babylon! Don't touch anything filthy. Wash yourselves. Be ready to carry back everything sacred that belongs to the Lord. You won't need to run. No one is chasing you. The Lord God of Israel will lead and protect you from enemy attacks.
— Isaiah 52:11-12 CEV

Today's Prayer

Lord, lead me away from the things in this world that would make me dirty in Your sight. I want to follow Your path and honor what You call sacred. The world threatens me and puts fear in my heart, making me want to run for my life, but You are my protection. You lead me forward, and You have my back. Thank You for Your divine protection. When I am overcome with fear, remind me that You are always there. In Jesus Name, Amen.
