Spiritual Warfare: 'Don’t Be Afraid – God Fights for His People'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, June 5, 2022

But I said to you, “Don’t be shocked or afraid of them! The Lord your God is going ahead of you. He will fight for you, just as you saw him do in Egypt.
— Deuteronomy 1:29-30 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess that many times I feel all alone. I feel lonely and afraid, and I build up my fears by focusing on them. Remind me, Lord, that when I’m full of fear, my faith ceases to exist. Fear and faith cannot coexist; one displaces the other. Help me to remember that You promised to go ahead of me and fight for me, and let this thought fill me with faith in Your promises so my fear will evaporate rather than my faith. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
