"Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." (1 Peter 5:8 NLT)
Thoughts for Today
Consider this …
Satan wants our praise and worship. Just think how he must react when he hears us joyfully worshipping and praising Jesus. As Satan tries to carry out his schemes, he begins to hear the praises of believer after believer, congregation after congregation . . . and he becomes distracted and frustrated! Praise and worship of our Lord is a powerful weapon against our enemy. Let's praise Jesus morning, noon, and night. Let's praise him during good times and during difficult situations. Let's praise him for who he is and what he's done . . . for what he is doing . . . and for what he will do.
May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands. (Psalm 149:6 NIV)
These thoughts were drawn from …
A Passionate Pursuit of God: Drawing Nearer to Him by Dr. Mike Chapman. This study teaches participant how to move into God's inner circle, how to listen for the voice of God, how to enjoy the freedom of worship, and how to embrace the mission of worship. This 45-minute format will accommodate groups with limited meeting times. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couple.
