Spiritual Warfare: 'Don't Let Your Mind Be Led Away'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, July 19, 2021

But I am afraid that your minds will be led away from your true and pure following of Christ just as Eve was tricked by the snake with his evil ways.
— 2 Corinthians 11:3 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, Satan and his forces are tricky and deceptive. They use clever lies to lead people toward disobedience. Give me discernment, Lord, so I can recognize what Eve didn’t. Help me to see and know when I’m being tricked by the evil plans of my unseen enemies. Show me the faults in their reasoning; don’t let me be led away from the safety of Your eternal truths. Help me to protect my mind by filling it with good things, Scriptural truths, and prayers for my fellow believers so I don’t get led away from You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
