S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


2 Chronicles 32:8a With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.

He will fight our battles for us."


Who do you depend on to fight your battles? Some would say, "Well, I have myself. I'm well educated, in great shape, and make a lot of money." That's probably what King Hezekiah thought before he was surrounded by the dreaded Assyrian army. In time, he received a mocking threat in the form of a letter from King Sennacherib, saying that he was coming to destroy him and his people.

In Response To Trouble, Say This: "The challenge I'm faced with is the result of ‘The Arm of Flesh,’ but I'm thankful today that I have a God who fights my battles for me!"


Dear Jesus, I'm encouraged this AM that I have You to call on and depend on. What I'm faced with is a result of "The Arm of Flesh." But I know You will fight my battles for me. Amen
