Devotional for Today August 31, 2023
"Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, That I may not sin against You." Psalms 119:11 AMP
Christians face a variety of challenges every day. And sometimes, from what I've seen, it seems that Christians face more challenges than others. Is it because we've made the choice to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior? It certainly is. But we must always strive, whatever our challenges and temptations, not to sin against God. We must fight sin every day, wearing the armor of Christ that enables us to extinguish all the enemy's flaming weapons.
God's word is what keeps us from sin. We need to meditate on God's word every day to be strengthened in our inner man, and draw closer to God every day. In this way, we can have the strength to fight against sin and against everything that leads us away from God.
A prayer for today:
Lord, I believe in You. I believe that your son Jesus died on the cross for me. I pray that You will help me every day of my life to hunger for Your word, and to hold it close to my heart so that I will not sin against You. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
