Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Jerry Bridges.
“We pray for victory when we know we should be acting in obedience.”
“God wants us to walk in obedience – not victory.”
1 Samuel 15:22
New American Standard Bible
22 Samuel said,
“Does the Lord have as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than a sacrifice,
And to pay attention is better than the fat of rams.
Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You. Your grace is so overwhelming in how it leads to heart-felt obedience. While temptation and sin are crouching behind every door, help us to know and believe that it is finished. Remind us of Your victory so we can remain obedient and strong in the face of all that would cause us to stumble. In Jesus’ name, amen.
If this prayer blessed you or brought you peace, please share this with someone in need.
