We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;persecuted, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
Storms of life press in on us but God will not let us be overwhelmed. Right now I think of our American society and many things being forced upon us. It is hard to recognize it as a democracy anymore in many respects.Christians are not to run and hide but we are to stay engaged in our society or freedom as we know it will cease to exist.
Spiritual warfare is for sure in progress. Ephesians 6:12reminds us our struggles are not against flesh and blood even though it would seem so, but instead against evil in high places. Satanic warfare to the max. Yes there indeed is a Satan and for sure He hates Christian nations and what we stand for. He works overtime to confuse and lie to people to get them trapped by his schemes. Don't be caught.
How do you stay on guard and protected? You get into the word of God which is your guide. Within its' pages are verses of comfort and verses to let you know God is always with you. Be strong. We are in a battle but we will not lose.
PRAYER: Lord I confess I become so distraught and discouraged at times when I hear reports of wrong and immoral things being shoved on our country. I will seek you and seek peace and pursue it. In Jesus' name. Amen.
