We live in a time of great conflict between good and evil, where deception is foundational to the enemy’s strategy, and the battle lines are drawn, not along the borders of nations, but inside each person’s soul.
Jesus long ago envisioned the day when the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Jesus walks with gentleness, but that must never be mistaken for weakness.
And what about God’s unlikely army? We are each unique and fragile, like a snowflake. But sometimes snowflakes shut down a big chunk of the United States.
This is one of the reasons I am a Christian. We are on the winning side. Deception will be stripped away. The violent will be dragged away. True freedom and true justice will remain. Nothing can discourage Jesus Christ, and no one can stop the triumph of His plans.
From the Bible:
He won’t quit. He won’t get discouraged. He won’t stumble. He will set up God’s justice throughout the earth. Isaiah 42:4 The Easy Bible
Remember, you are designed to make a difference!
