Dear Lord, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom turning us away from the sin that crouches around us like a roaring lion seeking to devour us at every moment…in our doubting and worrying. Today, O God, we stand on Your word and will not be anxious for anything but in our prayers and supplications we will raise our petitions before the Lord our God and Your unwavering peace will guard our hearts and minds in Christ. We will not succumb to the enemy’s attack. We will not allow him to have a toehold in or over our lives. We will deny him access to our eye gate, ear gate, mind gate, and mouth gate but we can’t do it apart from You Father God. We can get so tired Lord in this fight and though our backward steps may outnumber our forward steps, we are grateful that our faith-walk is not best measured when we are up but when we are down. We will look at our problems square in the eye and say, my Heavenly Daddy will solve it for us, no matter how strait the gates or big the obstacle that stands between we and our breaththrough because Jesus Christ is and always will be the captain of our fate and the master of our souls. Thank You, Daddy, for always being there for us when we need You the most…in Jesus’ name…amen!
