Lord I love you and how you rise up in us to cause us to walk, talk and work in your ways!
As I’m reading a Facebook post from a sister in Christ livid about the MOAB being dropped on Afghanistan….
seeming lack of outrage from any group…
What is outrage?
Is it not people who speak out and share their voice of concern about an event, situation or trend.
We know of course that incident proximity has a impact on people’s desire to speak out or get involved.
But ‘out of sight out of mind’ applies more often than not for many human tragedies.
We know who the ruler of this world is. We know his purpose to kill steal and destroy. The evil one has no place in us, our hearts or our works.
We know as saints we have been equipped as over-comers and we are more than conquerors.
We bring light. God’s light and love. We see through to God’s grand design and purpose in all global events.
We watch, not getting involved and distracted but remain focused on bringing in His Harvest (Luke 10) in our family, neighborhood, house church and our communities, resting in His peace as His ambassadors, being co-saviors to our world.
Paul’s advice to Timothy comes to mind, as does Isaiah and prophecy in Psalms:
“No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.”
2 Timothy 2:4 ESV
“for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, EVERY knee shall bow to me, and EVERY tongue shall confess to God.””
Romans 14:11 ESV
“By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me EVERY knee shall bow, EVERY tongue shall swear allegiance.’”
Isaiah 45:23 ESV
“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above EVERY name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:9-11 ESV
My point ladies and gentlemen is that God has been working His plan from the beginning and we can get all worked up and in a tizzy like the world does, or we can be the savior as us to our world.
Let’s rest, assured that God has it. Let men carry on wearing themselves out going around in circles until they come to the end of themselves. God’s light shining by us will be very brilliant and His way more obvious to choose!
Let’s get refocused not on what men and the world say about MOAB and translate the acronym’s true meaning:
