There is a wrestling match we’re involved in, my friend, and our opponent, Satan, doesn’t like to lose. This may seem like a cause for trepidation in your life, but you need not fear Satan’s assault. Each time we engage in spiritual battle with the enemy of our souls, we seize a grand opportunity for spiritual growth – in our minds, in our hearts, and in our lives. We become more vigilant about praying for power to defeat him and as a result, step into the next spiritual battle much stronger than we were before.
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
In this sense, prayer is not only worship and work, prayer is warfare! That is why God gave us a powerful weapon in prayer – prayer as a covering, prayer as a source of strength, and prayer as a means to stand firm in the fiercest battles!
In praying for protection, we come before God, requesting for Him to serve as our shield, our strength, our fortress, our deliverer, our strong tower, and a very present help in time of need. When we pray protection, we do so humbly in recognition of our weakness and vulnerability.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.
We need God’s strength and protection every day to combat the devil’s schemes. It is foolish to enter into battle without protection, especially when God has given us specific weapons for our warfare. Prayer is the invisible energy, the invisible force that is the key to victory.
Spend your prayer time today praying a covering of protection upon yourself and those closest to you.
