Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 10:4
For the weapons of our warfare are not physical, but they are mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds.
We each fight spiritual battles every day. Discouragement, anger, stress and defeat are just some of the enemy’s tactics as he tries to bring you down. When the devil sees that God has something great for you just around the corner he will fight his hardest to keep you from what God has in store for you. Be alert and recognize his schemes so you don’t fall into his traps. Arm yourself with spiritual weapons, the Word of God and prayer. Whatever you are battling today remember that God is on your side and you are more than a conqueror through Christ.

He doesn’t want you to suffer or be discouraged. Pour out your heart in prayer, for the Lord will never forsake you. He will have compassion on you and His unfailing love will comfort you and give you peace.
