Spiritual Warfare: 'God Is Your Guard'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, October 16, 2021

You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!
— Psalm 139:4-6 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, Your greatness cannot be described. You are fully aware of every word I will ever say. You know the future in detail — my future as well as everyone else's! You precede me, paving the way before me, watching out for me. And You also follow me — You are my rear guard! You always watch my back and make sure I’m safe. You are all the army I will ever need. None can circumvent Your divine protection. Thank You, Lord, for watching out for me — even when I fail to watch out for myself sometimes. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
