How have you seen opposition to the gospel in your own life?
Is there a Bible verse or passage that has been your comfort or strength in times of spiritual attack?
How can you encourage those around you to stand firm in the midst of trials in this life? Who may need that encouragement today?
What is something that I can be praying for you this fall?
Jesus, You stood against evil. You spoke truth to unjust authority and corrupt power. You turned over tables of greed and idolatry. You cast out demons. You knew who You were dealing with.
Teach me to see and name my enemies–those spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Give me eyes to see beneath the surface and to discern spirits. Give me courage to call out the sin that is at the root of whatever symptom I am encountering. Search me and see if there be any opposing way to Your gospel in me, and lead me in the way of life.
Thank You for the victory I have in You! In the end, no opponent will stand against Your everlasting love. “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39). Amen.
