Spiritual Warfare: 'God Protects the Innocent and Loyal People'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, September 18, 2021

Only the Lord gives wisdom; he gives knowledge and understanding. He stores up wisdom for those who are honest. Like a shield he protects the innocent. He makes sure that justice is done, and he protects those who are loyal to him.
— Proverbs 2:6-8 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I need Your wisdom and understanding. I have tried for so long to operate with my own wisdom, and it just isn’t good enough. Help me to live a faithful, innocent life, free from fear and sin and worry, trusting in Your provision and protection. You are able, Lord, and I am not. Forgive me for trying to run my life and make my plans without consulting You for wisdom, understanding, guidance, and direction. Lead me, and I will follow. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
