Deut. 20:4 For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.
An organization in Montana offered a bounty of five thou10sand dollars for every wolf captured alive. Two hunters decided to head for the hills and make some money capturing wolves. Day and night, they scoured the mountains and forests, searching for their valuable prey. Exhausted after three days of hunting without success, they both fell asleep.
During the night, one of the hunters suddenly woke up to find that the two were surrounded by a pack of fifty wolves, their eyes flaming and teeth bared. At once, he called to his friend, “Hey, wake up! We’re gonna be rich!”
Sometimes we feel in over our heads in difficulties. They surround us like that pack of wolves preparing to pounce. But perhaps these difficulties are actually opportunities?? Recently, we’ve had some interesting trials. But through these tribulations, we see that God is taking each situation, one by one, and turning it for His Glory — just more opportunities for us to testify of His goodness.
Today, we have the opportunity to learn and grow and experience the grace and power of God through these trials which surround us. The devil is not as smart or powerful as he appears — and we have a great and All-Mighty God who has a way of using our enemy’s silly tactics for the building up of His Great Kingdom!

are our pain our strength? interesting devotion. thanks
I have recently become reborn and awakened. Thank you for the reassurance. Perfect way to begin a new Devotional habit.
And the moral of the story is not to want to become rich! 1 Tim 6:9 :)
Love this, George…he is smart, but to the point of stupidity…if that even makes any sense….but you can definitely see it displayed on the news daily.
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. God does do the battle and He does protect us. God is our shield. And the devil doesn’t have to be super smart when some of us are super dumb at times & unfortunately we are easily trapped by the devil or seduced into sin. Yes God does the battle and even rescues us when we end up getting caught by the enemy. Amen.
