Winning Spiritual Battles
Read 2 Chronicles 12:1 through 13:22; John 8:31–59
The Israelites were subdued on that occasion, and the people of Judah were victorious because they relied on the Lord, the God of their ancestors (2 Chronicles 13:18).
Joanne passed an organization that funded abortions—thousands of them. “Oh, God, we need a center with resources to help girls keep their babies,” she prayed.
“That’s a silly prayer,” Satan whispered. “You have no funding for that.”
Joanne recounted Scripture and reminded herself of other times God answered impossible prayers. For three years she prayed. One day, she saw a “for-rent” sign on a nearby house. She checked it out. The rent was too high, but she contacted pastors and businesses for support. In a few months she opened a center where girls could see their unborn babies on an ultrasound. Counselors directed the girls to resources for either adoption or raising their babies themselves.
God will answer our impossible prayer as surely as he did Joanne’s and King Abijah’s.
Thought for Today: Maybe the reason Christians don’t see more victories like King Abijah’s is because they don’t keep praying in faith and persistence.
