Spiritual Warfare: 'Doubts Come During Crisis – Stay Faithful'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, November 4, 2022

The disciples of John the Baptist told John about everything Jesus was doing. So John called for two of his disciples, and he sent them to the Lord to ask him, "Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?" John’s two disciples found Jesus and said to him, "John the Baptist sent us to ask, 'Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?'”
— Luke 7:18-20 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, although Jesus held John in HIGH regard, and although John baptized Jesus and heard the voice from heaven confirming that You are His son when John was in prison — in a time a crisis — he doubted what he KNEW to be true. He doubted who You are. Help me, Lord, on the days I also doubt You. Grant me strength and patience to endure my own trials and sorrows. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
