Spiritual Warfare: 'Make the Most of Every Earthly Opportunity'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, December 24, 2021

Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
— Colossians 4:5-6 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, as I look back on my life now, I realize how many times I’ve taken the easy road; I’ve followed the path of my desires rather than following Your commands and making Your priorities my own. Forgive me. Lead me now as I try to live in wisdom in the middle of a world full of crime, chaos, addictions, and hopelessness. Help me to have the right answer—the wise answer—every time my faith is challenged. Anoint my words with Your Holy Spirit so I can bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
