As you begin this week we ask that you meditate on the following scriptures and how they apply to your life and your growing relationship with the Lord.
Father, we ask that you help us understand your word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and open our hearts and minds so that we may incorporate your word and will into our lives for your glory.
“So the Lord knows how to save those who serve him when trouble comes” ( 2 Peter 2:9)
“Be strong in the Lord and in his great power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can fight against the devil’s tricks. Our fight is not against people on earth, but against the rulers and authorities and the power of this world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world (Ephesians 6:10-12)
“If you think you are strong, you should be careful not to fall. The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it” (1 Corinthians 10:12-13)
