Spiritual Warfare: 'God Helps Those Who Turn from Evil'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, August 21, 2022

Do what is good and run from evil so that you may live! Then the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will be your helper, just as you have claimed. Hate evil and love what is good; turn your courts into true halls of justice. Perhaps even yet the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will have mercy on the remnant of his people.
— Amos 5:14-15 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, many things in this world are so tempting; so very enticing. I confess that I need Your help to resist and remain pure and holy in Your sight. Many things the world calls good are actually evil. Sometimes it seems like no matter how hard I try to stay faithful and true, Lord, temptation rears its ugly head and tries to get me to fall. Give me strength and endurance to finish the race and win the crown of life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
