Spiritual Warfare: 'Protected to Proclaim'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, July 7, 2022

But God has protected me right up to this present time so I can testify to everyone, from the least to the greatest. I teach nothing except what the prophets and Moses said would happen — that the Messiah would suffer and be the first to rise from the dead, and in this way announce God’s light to Jews and Gentiles alike.
— Acts 26:22-223 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for not sharing my testimony with the lost folks right around me. Forgive me for neglecting to testify about the resurrection of Jesus. Remind me that this good news needs to be shared and that my story about You needs to be told. Give me the opportunity, Lord, and give me the courage to do just that. And open the hearts of the hearers. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
