Daily Devotional for September 25

By: Carmen Pate*******************************************************
SCRIPTURE:"But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." -- 1 Corinthians 15:57-58

REFLECTION:You are about to embark on an amazing 40 day adventure with God that could indeed have life long implications. Accessing God's power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion in America is the vision. Revival across America and many saved lives may well be the result! We are engaged in a spiritual battle and the plans have been laid. Our mission is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God's favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion in America.

Do you think the enemy will be silent? No way. The enemy -- Satan, the world system he rules, and our flesh -- will be battling tirelessly against us. You see, he won't accept the fact that the victory is already ours because of Christ's death and resurrection. It is a complete and total victory over sin, Satan, evil in all its forms, and death. On the cross Jesus cried, "It is finished!" and this secured an eternal victory for all who place their faith in Him.
Through the power of His Holy Spirit in us, we are enabled to tap into vast resources of spiritual power to fight the principalities and powers of darkness that have already been disarmed by the blood of Christ. (Colossians 2:15)
Though they won't give up, neither will we. After all, we are the victors!

PRAYER:Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14) Heavenly Father, as we appropriate your supernatural victory by faith, empower and enable us to besteadfast, unmovable, always abounding in Your work. May our testimony reflect Christ and honor You in all we say and do. The glory goes to You, for You alone areworthy of our praise!
In Jesus name we pray,
Anticipating Great Miracles,
