Battling Forces of Evil

Read Psalms 55:1–23; 58:1–11

When Kay ran for the local school board, she knew there would be battles, but she knew the Lord would be with her through them. When a friend introduced a regulation requiring the schools to teach moral purity before marriage, Kay supported it. Among those who opposed it were parents of two little girls. They had voted for her when she ran for the board without checking her stance on that issue. They came to the board meeting to express their feelings. Though shaken by the venom of the husband’s words, Kay stood true to her beliefs, and the regulation passed.


He ransoms me and keeps me safe from the battle waged against me, though many still oppose me (Psalm 55:18).


In today’s culture, Christians are called to speak truth and to not give in despite the opposition of those whose views differ. Those who speak truth may not gain popularity, but God will stand with them and give them strength.


Challenge for Today: Be courageous in your stand for righteousness today, regardless of the pressure to compromise.
