Spiritual Warfare: 'Listening to and Following Jesus Equals Stability'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.
— Matthew 7:24-25 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for being blind and deaf to Your teaching for so much of my life. Lead me now as I learn to spend time in Your Word and in prayer and follow You. I know now that this is the pathway that leads to success, confidence, peace, and stability. Please be patient with me as I make the necessary changes in my heart and in my life that bring me into sync with Your teachings and examples. And use me to Your glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
