Spiritual Warfare: 'Curb Your Ego – Measure Yourself by Faith'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, December 21, 2022

Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.
— Romans 12:3 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for thinking too highly of myself, my abilities, and my value to Your Kingdom. I know that if I’m filled with pride, You will have nothing to do with me. Help me to see myself as YOU see me, Lord, in light of my faith in You. Please help me to let the circumstances of my life mold my faith into a spiritual giant—a man of God You can be proud of and assign other duties. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
