Spiritual Warfare: 'Don’t Be Intimidated by Your Enemies'

God's Power for Our Battles — Saturday, December 3, 2022

Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies. This will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself.
— Philippians 1:28 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for my fears. Threats from the enemies of Your kingdom fall on my ears every day. I’m threatened if I pray; threatened if I share the gospel; threatened if I say that Your Word is absolute truth. Sometimes, Lord, I’m even threatened by other CHRISTIANS when I say these things. Help me to focus on pleasing my Audience of One (You), Lord, instead of trying to conform to the political correctness of this present world. Give me courage and boldness to stand up for truth and for the Name of Jesus at every single opportunity. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
