Spiritual Warfare: 'Steadfast Under Trial'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, September 11, 2021

Blessed [happy, spiritually prosperous, favored by God] is the man who is steadfast under trial and perseveres when tempted; for when he has passed the test and been approved<, he will receive the [victor’s] crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
— James 1:12 AMP

Today's Prayer

Lord, temptations and trials surround me. The enemy knows my weaknesses and works to exploit them in every way possible. But I know that You favor and bless all who persevere and overcome, and I want to be one of the overcomers, Lord. Give me the will, strength, and courage to finish my race and win my crown of life. I look forward to hearing Your words of approval on that great day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
