(Part 1)

The wiles of the devil are many, and we face them daily. God's Word arms us with faith that prepares and equips us every day to fight back and to win life's battles.

READ: Is. 61:1; Matt. 12:43; Eph. 6:10-15; Eph. 6:16-20; Rom. 6:16; 2 Cor. 10:3-5.
HEART ISSUE: What are you doing in your life to stand firm in spiritual warfare? What borders are you setting up against temptation and compromise?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father God, in the name of Jesus, thank You for helping me to stand strong against the devil. Thank You for empowering me through Your Word to walk in the ways of Christ, without compromise. Amen.

(Part 2)

Don't turn your back on the enemy, but rather, face him head on—doing good and refraining from any ungodly practices. God's Word will instruct you and empower you, as well.

READ: Ps. 51:10; Prov. 24:16; Gal. 4:7; Gal. 5:16; Eph. 6:13-18; 1 Tim. 6:12.
HEART ISSUE: What are you doing to stand firm against the wiles of the devil in your daily life? Are you keeping a constant vigil against temptation?
PRAYER FOCUS: Thank You, Lord, for keeping me on the straight path of righteousness daily. Let Your Holy Spirit give me the wisdom and discernment I need to avoid deception and trickery. Thank You for always being with me, empowering me, by Your Word, to walk the walk for Christ. Amen.
