Spiritual Warfare: 'Love God, Be Loyal, and Follow All His Directions'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, August 4, 2021

Faithfully obey all these commands I’m giving you. Love the Lord your God, follow all his directions, and be loyal to him. Then the Lord will force all these people out of your way. Then you will take possession of the land belonging to people taller and stronger than you.
— Deuteronomy 11:22-23 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, most of my life I have lived to please myself. But from here on, Lord, I want to live to please You. I love You above all else and all others. Teach me Your ways, Lord, and reveal Your plan for me as I read Your Word and try my best to follow all Your commands and instructions. Above all else, Lord, I want to be known as being loyal to You. And from now on I will trust You to make a way for me through this life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
