Daily devotional: The veil from Satan

Scripture
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4 NIV

Observation
Satan is actively working to veil people's hearts from understanding the Gospel and this great gift that God has made available to each of us through Jesus Christ.

Application
Pray that the Holy Spirit will lift the veil from people's eyes. Pray for a spiritual awakening. Then set forth the truth plainly (2 Corinthians 4:2) and implore people on Christ's behalf to be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:20).

Prayer
Lord, thank you for this beautiful day. Thank you for lifting the veil from my heart and enabling me to grasp hold of this amazing gift You are holding out to each of us. I pray now that You would please lift the veil from the hearts of all who I come into contact with. Awaken each of us spiritually! May my life be fragrant for You, regardless of whether it is accepted by others eagerly or whether it is opposed and comes with persecution. Please give me the words to say and discernment to know what and when to say them so that I will be bold in proclaiming Your truth to others. Let Your Word not fall on deaf ears but rather let it be fruitful. I love you!
