Spiritual Warfare: 'Stay Strong in Jesus Without Being Deceived'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, July 29, 2022

I am telling you this so no one will deceive you with well-crafted arguments. For though I am far away from you, my heart is with you. And I rejoice that you are living as you should and that your faith in Christ is strong.
— Colossians 2:4-5 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, help me to realize how easily I can be deceived by well-crafted arguments from modern teachers and philosophers. Help me to live strong—holding tightly to the truths taught in the Bible about how to live my daily life. I want to be able to rejoice in a life of kindness and goodness well-lived. Help me to grow in the knowledge of Your Word and in my faith in Jesus as Savior and Messiah. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
