Spiritual Warfare: 'Trust God: He Knows What He’s Doing'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, October 28, 2023

The Lord says, "My thoughts are not like your thoughts. Your ways are not like my ways. Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts."
— Isaiah 55:8-9 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for always trying to get You to fulfill MY agenda rather than being submissive to Your ways and methods and Your perfect timing. I usually think I have all the answers I need, but the truth is that I am usually ignorant of what really needs to happen and clueless as to how to make a difference. So I’m asking You today to use me to bring You glory in SPITE of my inability to know what to do or how to help. Lead me on this journey and teach me Your plans along the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
