Spiritual Warfare: 'God Will Help You Escape'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, October 23, 2021

Thank the Lord, who did not let them sink their teeth into us. We escaped like a bird caught in a hunter’s trap. The trap was broken, and we escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
— Psalm 124:6-8 GWT

Today's Prayer

Thank You, Lord. More than once in the past, I have been caught in a trap, feeling like I could never overcome the difficulties I faced at the time. But that was a lie from Satan — You provided a way of escape — over and over. You are Creator of heaven and earth, and You know exactly what I need each time I let myself get in a bind. I praise Your Name for Your constant protection and provision. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
