Spiritual Warfare: 'Following God Isn’t Always a Smooth Journey '

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, November 3, 2022

In the second year after Israel’s departure from Egypt — on the twentieth day of the second month — the cloud lifted from the Tabernacle of the Covenant. So the Israelites set out from the wilderness of Sinai and traveled on from place to place until the cloud stopped in the wilderness of Paran.
— Numbers 10:11-12 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, the Israelites KNEW they were following You when you appeared in front of them as a pillar of cloud or fire—they knew for SURE they were following Your plan for their life right then. I don’t always KNOW I’m right where You want me to be, Lord, so please give me eyes to see You and ears to hear Your voice and the ability to KNOW I’m right where you want me—even if it means I end up at a place with no water like they did. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
