Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.
Good Morning Jesus!
I love You so very much. My heart this morning is full with the love You have given me. You are so special and I want to tell everyone what You have done for me.
I know I will have hard times to go through, Jesus, You never promised me a rose garden. But, You did promise me that You would never leave or forsake me. How blessed I am to have You as my Companion.
You Word reminds me this morning, Lord, that I stand firm against You. Not on top of You, not below You, but beside You, snuggled up against Your side. I am never alone and You hold me up when I’m confronted by Satan. When those times come, remind me also that You have the victory over him and I can claim that victory.
Help me also to be praying for all the brothers and sisters across the world. So many do not have the freedoms of worshipping You as I do. Surround them with all You are.
You are my LORD and I love You!

Good morning Carol,
I really like your idea of being snuggled up to Jesus side, but I feel compelled to point out that w/in the context of this scripture, that we are being warned to stand firm against the devil and be alert and resist the devil and his temptations.
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
I appreciate reading these each morning and thank you for sending them. They are always part of my morning devotions and prayer time. Blessings on your day Carol! See you on Zoom tomorrow. 🙂 Rose🌹

You’re not wrong Rose, the way I look at it the only way I can stand firm against the devil is to stand close to my Savior! I guess I could have mentioned that the devil is roaming around and to stay alert. I might edit that prayer for the next time!
