Sometimes it feels like a slug in the gut when I see certain things happening in our country, especially regarding the indoctrination of our kids. There's a sense of hopelessness that goes along with it that would say it's no use, this country is lost to all the anti-biblical "isms." It pierces the heart, and we know we need to repent--for ourselves and others--and ask God to forgive us for all the things that have been done that has brought us to the place we are in. But then...
God forgives. He does. And we can begin to experience moments of joy. We can enjoy His forgiveness and His blessing. We can enjoy our families. We can enjoy our lives. It's true that this planet will go through much turmoil before its all said and done. There will be a new heaven and a new earth. Globalists will not be able to bring world peace. Only the rule of Jesus Christ, and the willing submission to His rule, will bring peace. But God gives peace in the midst of storms.
Whatever storms are going on in your life right now, lift up your eyes to Jesus. Speak as He did to the storms. We're not fighting flesh and blood, we're fighting a spiritual war. Jesus spoke to the wind and the sea and it was calm. The battles around you are not insignificant. If we all learn to bring peace to our storms, peace will prevail in our land.
Don't give in to hopelessness and despair. Enjoy God, your family, and your life. Let the peace He gives fill your surroundings with moments of joy!
