Spiritual Warfare: 'God Directs and Restores Godly People'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, May 12, 2023

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.
— Psalm 37:23-24 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, help me to abound in godliness. Lead me to be obedient and faithful to Your Holy word. I know that this will cause You to direct my steps, Lord, and I confess that I don't know which way to turn, so I desperately need Your guiding hand. I stumble over and over, Lord, and I know You are the One who is helping me recover and keep going. With Your help, Lord, I can always snap back and continue the journey, but without You, I'm doomed. Hold my hand, Lord, as I take each step. I rely on You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
