We can face a battle in our minds and we need to be clear who is speaking to us and whose voice we allow in our lives. We need to pray for our leaders who face the same attacks.
Satan prowls to attack vulnerable people, waiting for an opportune time (Luke 4:13). James says people are drawn away by their own selfish desires. The tools we have to fight the enemy include the powerful name of Jesus.
I have chosen this song to go with this message: Your NameVerses for Today:
1 Peter 5: 8-10
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Lord Jesus I call upon your name seeking your strength and protection. Please help me each day to resist the temptations that would lead me away from You.
