Spiritual Warfare: 'NOTHING Happens Without God’s Permission'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Nobody can speak and have it happen unless the Lord commands it. Both bad and good things come by the command of the Most High God. No one should complain when he is punished for his sins. Let us examine and see what we have done and then return to the Lord.
— Lamentations 3:37-40 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I praise You as the Creator and Orchestrator of earth and life and all things that happen. You cause or allow everything that happens. You are truly in control. You are the all-powerful King of all creation. We can make plans, but only You can make them happen; only You can cause good to come from bad, Lord, and only You can punish or exalt. Your will be done. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
