Spiritual Warfare: 'God Will Clear the Way'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, May 23, 2021

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, and He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].
— Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP

Today's Prayer

Lord, over and over I have relied on myself; on my human wisdom and faulty understanding. I thought I knew the best way to proceed. I was wrong. Forgive me. From now on, Lord, I choose to rely on You: Your wisdom, guidance, and understanding. Lead the way, Lord, and I will do my best to follow faithfully. Show me the path, Lord, and clear my way so I can follow You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
