Spiritual Warfare: 'Strength for Daily Life from Jesus'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, May 27, 2022

I know how to live in poverty or prosperity. No matter what the situation, I've learned the secret of how to live when I'm full or when I'm hungry, when I have too much or when I have too little. I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.
— Philippians 4:12-13 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess I can't do life on my own without You. And I admit that is what I've tried to do at times in my life. When I have plenty, Lord, I forget to pray or give You any credit — acting like I've done it on my own. And, when I'm in need, I've run to You with a list of what I expect You to do — kind of like You are my great Santa Clause in the sky. Forgive me for my self-centeredness. I now know that I can live in any circumstance You put me in — just not on my own. I can only accomplish this mastery of life's situations through the strength of Jesus and my relationship with Him. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
