Spiritual Warfare: 'Lies and Deceit Hinder Relationship with God'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, November 13, 2024

I will look for trustworthy people so I can live with them in the land. Only those who live innocent lives will be my servants. No one who is dishonest will live in my house; no liars will stay around me. Every morning I will destroy the wicked in the land. I will rid the Lord’s city of people who do evil.
— Psalm 101:6-8 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I want to be one of the trustworthy—one of those You are looking to live with. Deliver me from deceit and dishonesty, and help me to live in righteousness and kindness. I don’t want to be counted with those You will destroy because of their lifestyle of wickedness, Lord, so help me to live in honesty and humility. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
