Evil versus God
On the eve of 9/11 we are reminded that the face of evil comes in many forms. In 2001 evil became airborne and our country changed forever. Watching the twin towers fall steeled our resolve and Americans came together in the War on Terror. It was a time when George W. Bush said either you stand with us or against us. Our troops went into Southwest Asia with a vengeance. In 2012 evil sieged the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya and Barack Obama said stand down its only backlash of a video and four American’s died. In 2020 evil is surging our nation being egged on by politicians and dominating every newscast as America prepares to vote on November 3rd.
One needs to only look in the mirror and see the reflection of evil where fear has taken root.
The bible tells us that God has not told us to surrender to fear because he has greater things in store for us.
2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
What do you hear on the radio or see on television, social media and the internet, images of suffering pain and agony and despair? I see a world without God. I have a simply solution, turn it off and work on building your relationship with the creator God. There is nothing at surprises God and everything brings honor and glory to him.
Ephesians 6:12, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
We are told this is an ageless struggle between good and evil, but nothing could be further from the truth. The battle has already been won. Jesus has overcome the world. We see hard times ahead and at time the forecast looks bleak, but rest assured that God is in control. What we see happening was foretold in scripture and must come to pass.
When you find yourself in difficult situations do you plead with God to take them from you or do you ask him to walk with you through the difficult times? The constant in life is change. Often it is a change in our attitude that makes the real difference.
What could ever be harder than trying to walk through life without God?
Spending eternity without God!
The time is now; today; this Hour. Do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Have you asked him to forgive your sin? Have you asked him to come into your heart and cleanse you from sin, from all unrighteousness? You can know that you know your sins are forgiven?
A Sinner’s Prayer
“Jesus, I recognize that I am a sinful man. I need you. I believe that you are the Son of the Living God who lived and died on the cross at Calvary and rose on the third day for my sin. Will you forgive me from my sin? I ask you to cleanse me from all unrighteousness and make me whole. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!
It’s that easy. If you said that prayer (or a similar one) from your heart you have been saved. You must turn away from the sinful life you once lived and ask God to guide you to a body of believers who can encourage and strengthen you to become a disciple of Jesus.
Know that he will never leave you, nor forsake you. He will guide your steps and watch over you. Life will still be hard, maybe even harder, but know that God is right beside you every step of the way. There may be times when you don’t see, or feel him. There will be times when he is carrying you through difficult circumstances. God never fails. God will never walk away from you. God Loves You! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
