Spiritual Warfare: 'Faith Unleashes God's Power'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, September 8, 2022

It was by faith that the people of Israel went right through the Red Sea as though they were on dry ground. But when the Egyptians tried to follow, they were all drowned. It was by faith that the people of Israel marched around Jericho for seven days, and the walls came crashing down.
— Hebrews 11:29-30 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, over and over You have shown Your power over situations on earth through Israel. You helped them escape on dry ground right through the sea while using that same event to destroy their enemies without a single Israelite casualty. You saw to it that Israel conquered the mighty city of Jericho by making the walls of that city fall outward, exposing their homes and leaving them defenseless. And, Lord, I trust You have the ability to help me through my current difficulties. I can’t wait to see how You do that! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
