Just Trust God, Ok?
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:10-12 If you are watching the world news lately it does not take much to get fearful. Government corruption. Leaders who do their own thing at the expense of the people. Terrorism and ISIS infiltrating America. Open borders allowing criminals, drugs and crime to seep into America. Aborted baby parts being sold. It makes ones heads spin. I for one am very sad. Yet God is still on the throne. We have to trust Him. I heard a message in church where the minister said God is not sitting around wringing His hands in fear of global collapse. He has our back. We have to remember that. The thing we are to do is to stay in prayer and focus on God's word, not the nightly news, if we expect to have peace. Remember who our real enemy is and he schemes to trick people and to try to get rid of The name of Christ and anything associated with it. My word for the day is realize who the battle is against and keep praying and trust God. PRAYER: Thank you Lord for being our shield 24 hours a day. Help me to be aware of the tactics of the evil schemer the devil. I pray for those people he has captivated and deceived. Keep me alert Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
