I am so very thankful for the truth and insight written in God’s word, The Bible. It helps us to see beyond the things that appear on the surface and goes into the truth that is behind the scenes. Ephesians 6:12, KJV: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” When we see unrest, pain, anger, fear, hatred, there is a deeper spirit at work wanting to destroy and cause pain on so many levels.
Seeing and hearing all of the things that are taking place, we naturally focus on individuals or certain groups that are saying things, doing or not doing things and we concentrate our dislike, anger or hatred toward those groups as being the cause of everything that is going on. Scripture tells us that it goes beyond that, it goes into the Very spirit of those actions. Instead of going with the flow of bitterness, destruction and chaos, let us choose life, hope, love, truth, healing and compassion in everything we do. “While we were still sinners Christ died for us”
Those that we are hating, those we don’t agree with, those we find ignorant or rejecting of the truth, those who are destroying, those who are generating words of bitterness, remember Christ died for them also. We should not give in to those behind the scenes manipulators in the spiritual world and pray for every one that Christ could bring life, hope, love, compassion, change, understanding, truth and salvation to their world. We are the light not the darkness. Give in to God’s spirit and not the spirit of darkness. As quickly as we are prone to judgment and anger, may we be even more swift to pray for God to touch those with His life. A light to our world, a hope for all mankind.
