Spiritual Warfare: 'Visions & Whispers'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, August 19, 2021

For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds. He whispers in their ears and terrifies them with warnings. He makes them turn from doing wrong; he keeps them from pride. He protects them from the grave, from crossing over the river of death.
— Job 33:14-18 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, help me to be open to You—and to all the ways You are speaking to me. Give me dreams and visions that guide my path. Whisper Your words in my ears the moment I need them. Deliver me from death and the grave so I can shout Your praises and honor You Name among all the people. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
