Spiritual Warfare: 'Make the Choice to Serve God Faithfully'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, November 17, 2021

So now, revere the Lord. Serve him honestly and faithfully. Put aside the gods that your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates and in Egypt and serve the Lord. But if it seems wrong in your opinion to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Choose the gods whom your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live. But my family and I will serve the Lord.
— Joshua 24:14-15 CEB

Today's Prayer

Lord, I choose You. I choose Jesus. The world encourages me to serve myself, my desires, and my lusts, but I choose to serve You and put Your agenda above my own. Forgive me for serving myself and my own little kingdom in the past, and help me as I learn to put Your commands at the top of my priority list from now on. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
