The Lord is our Deliverer

Story #1. When the people cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer (Judges 3:9).

Story #2. The people cried out to the Lord, and the Lord raised up for them a deliverer (Judges 3:15).

Story #3. The people cried out to the Lord for help . . . so on that day God subdued their enemy (from Judges 4:3-23).

Story #4. The Lord still delivers those who cry out to Him.

Do you want to be Strong in the Lord?

Put on the whole armor of God . . . and pray at all times (from Ephesians 3:11-18).

“Prayer is not merely another godly weapon. It is the all-pervasive strategy in which warfare is fought.”*

*adapted from John MacArthur, The MacArthur New Testament Commentary EPHESIANS, p. 376-377.

Christ is Far Above All

We wrestle, “against the rulers, against the authorities . . . against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).”

But Christ is seated at God’s right hand in the heavenly places, “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion (Ephesians 1:21).”

This, my friends, is why we pray!
