These days, it is difficult to watch the news without feeling discouraged and disgusted at how deep our world is sinking into an immoral abyss. However, to blame the politics of this nation for such a state is to not fully comprehend what is going on around us.
The Devil is at work in the hearts and minds of millions. He'll use whatever tactics he can to harm, tempt, incite, and sway the masses away from God. Tragically taking the lives of good people and precious, innocent children is right up his alley.
Regardless of what the adversary does in this world, regardless of his plans, his actions, or the harm he inflicts, it is comforting to know that he will lose in the end. He is doomed to fail.
Let us sing in dire circumstances - Acts 16:25
Let us Soak our days in prayer - I Thessalonians 5:17
Let us be the voices crying out in the wilderness - Matthew 3:1-3
Let us fight against the powers of this world with an arsenal of faith, hope, and love - Ephesians 6:10-18; 1 Corinthians 13:13
Let us never forget that the same God who spoke the world into existence is on our side - Romans 8:31
That doesn't mean that we won't be attacked.
It doesn't mean that we won't hurt or suffer at the enemy's hands.
But it does mean that we will win.
Have courage in the face of the opposition.
The works of the adversary, no matter how atrocious, cannot keep us from our Lord.
Stand firm and persevere to see the glory of God.
Are you ready for Him to come? He could come right now! Are you ready? If not, please make yourself ready. Demonstrate your love for Him by keeping His commandments and accepting His Salvation: Hear - Believe - Repent - Confess - Be Baptized
