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 6:12
One day in Huntsville, Alabama at a stoplight, the car in front of me displayed a bumper sticker, with patriotic colors, with the slogan above. It made me chuckle. No doubt how many people feel in this election year and as things worsen morally. But God has a plan. Don't get hopeless and by all means don't stay home on Election Day in November.There is always reason for hope so never despair. The truth does set people free. Satan has blinded the eyes of many. He has caused division often among family and friends. The truth is made into a lie and a lie into truth. Arguing isn't going to change anything but prayer indeed will. So what are we waiting for?
I recommend turning off bad news for one. Next get your Bible out and read it. Start with Psalms, Proverbs, the book of John. It is through God's word we have the strength to face the tough times surely ahead. Worry is not the answer but being a warrior for God is.
PRAYER: Mere man has no power over the mighty hand of God. Help me remember this when world events and people's action seem to be against you Lord. I choose to continue to be on my knees in prayer. In Jesus' name. Amen.
