But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. Galatians 5:16-17
Today marks the 15th anniversary of the tragedy of the World Trade Center collapse, Pentagon tragedy, and Shanksville, PA. On that day pure evil people who did not like the United States or what we stand for did the unthinkable and flew commercial jets into both Tower 1 and Tower 2 then later into the side of the Pentagon and one failed attempt which was taken down by passengers crashed in a field near Shanksville, PA. Anyone who was alive older than 6 back then probably remembers this vividly. The images of survivors leaping from the World Trade Center towers won't leave us.
This occurred because of evil forces. As former President George W Bush used to call it, the "axis of evil" and he was right. Right now in our nation we have had any attacks on our own soil by ISIS and probably more to come until we start closing borders and allowing refugees into the country without proper security checks. We are a special nation founded on Christian principles and many people don't like this even those within our own country. Naturally enemies will strike.
What we can do is be alert, aware, and stay in an attitude of prayer. Don't cower in fearfulness because God is on the side of righteousness. Continue to pray for enemies who seek to destroy us some sad to say are in the government that is supposed to protect us. Lean on Jesus. You know who wins in the end.
PRAYER: I thank you for the gift of freedom. I know there is evil around us trying to take this away. You have blessed this land and for that I say thank you. Help me do my part to help keep this land free. In Jesus' name. Amen.
