Battle Plan
Week 24
Sept 7-13, 2020

God is our deliverer. He is not threatened by the schemes of men or nations. This week let’s turn our attention to our God. Let’s use our voices to give thanks, to declare the praises of the One who has called us out of darkness and welcomed us into the Kingdom of the son He loves. Almighty God, the creator of heaven and earth, is watching over us!

Proverbs 21:31 (NIV)
31  The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD.

Psalm 3:8 (NIV)
8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. Selah

Jeremiah 3:23 (HCSB)
23  Surely, falsehood comes from the hills, commotion from the mountains, but the salvation of Israel is only in the LORD our God.

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (NIV)
57  But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58  Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Reading: Ephesians (note the multiple references to the “heavenly realm”)


Let’s begin our day with an expression of thanks (list) for God’s blessings the previous day!

(Let’s borrow a prayer from the church in Jerusalem, in a season of stress)
“Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” Acts 4:29-30 (NIV)

Heavenly Father,
I rejoice in your great power. You have placed the stars in heaven and know them by name. You are aware when a sparrow falls to the ground. You have clothed the lilies of the field with a great and delicate beauty. You are watching over me! You are my strength and my defender. You give life to my mortal body and breath to my lungs. You uphold me in the midst of those who would bring destruction. I rejoice in your faithfulness, I cast all my anxiety upon you. I choose to rest in your abundant provision for me. Thank you for calling me, cleansing me and placing me on a path of righteousness, in Jesus’ name, amen.
