Verses to Help Us Pray for Hong Kong
I have a confession. Before posting this, I was really nervous. Things have been so bad lately (#prayforhongkong), I didn’t really want to provoke the enemy … and thought maybe I shouldn’t. But … was that uneasy feeling from God or from the enemy?
So, as we do, I prayed and I felt God remind me that I really needed to memorise more scriptures. (Lol. I know. Very true, God.) In his Holy Bible I would find the TRUTHS I needed to have no fear and stand firm against the enemy.
So I repented of having fear and did some digging. (Note: I still think it’s wise to pray before posting, just saying the spirit of fear is not from God.) Here are some verses that are speaking to me this morning and I’m going to do my best to meditate on them throughout the day. Praying that no matter what your situation is that these verses are refreshing and encourage you to LIVE BOLDLY for CHRIST in the way that he’s called you. ❤️ #theyayproject
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4) Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—the Most High, who is my refuge—no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. (Psalm 91:9-12). Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7) so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11) Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. (Ephesians 6:11) so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs. (2 Corinthians 2:11) But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3) for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7)
