Has the world around us gone insane? Yes it has. Are we surprised? There is injustice, lawlessness, criminality, intolerance and little accountability. What we see and experience is just a little insight into the spiritual battle. That's just the starting point. The good news is people are waking up to it and are becoming more confident about voicing their opposition to evil. There is a new determination.
Change is coming.
We can be confident that God's love is greater than our problems here on earth, greater than sin and greater than evil. He invites us, however, to do our part. Keep God at the center of our life, pray for His will to be done, fortify ourselves with His Word (reading the Bible), pray for wisdom and discernment. Glorify Him. Sing His praises!
We can make every effort to be fair and honest in our day, inspiring our circle of influence.
"Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the enemy's schemes." He tells us how in Ephesians 6:10-20.
Put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace and preparation, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of the Spirit, praying in the Spirit at all times.
Be optimistic - God's got this. Stay at peace. You and I are part of His spiritual plan. We can put our faith and trust completely in Him.
