Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
"10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel,. . .’” Ephesians 6:10, 12, 18-19

Father, I praise You for being the Almighty God. I am grateful that I can be strong in the strength of Your might. Forgive me for all the times I try to fight spiritual battles in my own strength.
