“I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going out and coming in.” ~Joshua 14:11
Unfortunately, being a church member is not a guarantee of support. We actually had a congregation turn their back on one of our students one time who got into a shooting. This is before all the church shootings got en vogue. I remember back when they thought that God would protect you in church, and now they figured out that God said you should protect yourself in church. Now all these churches have security teams, which means the people who were already carrying guns in church are now officially carrying guns in church. God wants you to be armed. I just want to say that.
~James Yeager from his upcoming book
But He said to them, “It is not for you to know periods of time or appointed times which the Father has set by His own authority; but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.” ~Act 1:7-8
Lord, I come before you seeking the strength and skill to overcome my enemies. Grant me I pray, the wisdom to recognize evil, the courage to confront it, and the strength to destroy it. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
