Morning by Morning, August 15 - "They Shall Not Prevail"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Your name is above every name (Philippians 2:9). And I lift up Your name in worship and praise above every moment of my day and every matter on my heart. ...
"They will fight against you; but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you" (Jeremiah 1:19).
We're in a battle every day (John 10:10). The enemies of our soul never give up the fight. It's just that some days are much less subtle than others. Some days they're more in our face than sneaking around behind our back. But though they fight against us, they will not prevail against us. For You are with us and You will deliver us. "(We) are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in (us), than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4 KJV).
Arise today, O Lord. Let my enemies be scattered! (Psalm 68:1) "As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; and as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God; yes, let them rejoice exceedingly!" (Psalm 68:2-3 NKJV)
We're only righteous in You, because You set things right in us through Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21). And though our enemies fight against us, even though things are not always right in the means and systems they use to try to destroy us, they will not prevail against us. Your truth will stand. Their lies will fall. Your will shall be done. And all along the way, You will be at work in us, teaching us to trust more in You, making us more like You, through every fight we endure and every enemy we overcome (Romans 8:28-29). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
I pray you will see the Lord our God arise to scatter your enemies, who shall not prevail against you, but will only be used to empower you to trust more in our God and become more like Him through every fight you face and overcome, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
"I, the Lord, will roar like a Lion" (Hosea 11:10 NLT)
Friends, please continue to join with me in prayer for a close friend of mine and his family, as he continues to go through his trial this week. Please pray for courage for the judge who has taken the Motion to Acquit under consideration, in a rare move, before the case is given to the jury to decide their verdict probably early this week. Please continue to join with me to press through in prayer until the end for him and his family. By the grace of God, this trial seems to be going exceptionally well, with more truth being revealed every day. We pray for clarity, discernment, that all things be exposed in the light of the truth, that the judge and jury may discern and judge rightly, as well as for the favor and mercy of the Lord for my friend and his family. And may God cause all of this to work together for good. We trust that the battle is won in the Spirit, as we pray for it to be manifested on earth as it is in heaven. God bless you!
