Spiritual Warfare: 'God Destroys the Proud and Protects Widows'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, September 26, 2022

The path of life leads upward for the wise; they leave the grave behind. The Lord tears down the house of the proud, but he protects the property of widows. The Lord detests evil plans, but he delights in pure words.
— Proverbs 15:24-26 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, fill me with Your Spirit and Your wisdom. Grant me discernment and understanding. And help me to use all this to Your glory. Deliver me from pride, Lord, because I know You are close to the humble, but far from the proud. You hate evil practices and rejoice in words of kindness and encouragement. And thank You, Lord, for helping the widows, protecting their property and sustaining them through the financial difficulties of a life post-marriage. Thank You for being their provider by preserving their property. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
