Spiritual Warfare: 'Don't Focus on Wealth — It Will Disappear'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, May 31, 2021

Don't wear yourself out trying to get rich. Be wise enough to know when to quit. In the blink of an eye wealth disappears, for it will sprout wings and fly away like an eagle.
— Proverbs 23:4-5 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, grant me contentment. Help me to be at peace and satisfied with what I have and what You plan for me to have. Forgive me for running up debt, buying all the latest gadgets, chasing all the newest fads, and working to satisfy desires focused on things that I don't need. Remind me that the things of this world will never last. Earthly stuff will break, wear out, rust, or be left behind when I die. Help me to know when to quit — when the stuff with which You've blessed is enough. Give me a fresh focus on what's truly important. I commit to trust You to provide for all my needs while I accomplish Your purpose for my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
