When your society seems to have gone mad with wicked depraved ideas, you are being challenged to make choices. Will you allow yourself to be herded like sheep to the slaughter? Will you go with the flow and take your family by the seemingly easy path into the net of destruction? Or will you gather the courage to seek out the truth that will set you free no matter what the cost?
I have no doubt that all of us are being motivated to pray for God’s help in our perplexing times of need. But are we praying in fear or in faith?
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Are truth tellers guilty of ignoring evidence that is suppressed by main stream monopolists of disinformation? Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, is the great discourse about the many extraordinary facets of the Jewel of God’s Word. The psalmist declares in verse 162:
“I rejoice at Thy Word, as one who finds great spoil” (like a hidden treasure of booty in the plunder hidden by a defeated enemy).
And verse 165 calms us with: “Those who love Thy law have great peace, and nothing causes them to stumble (or to be offended).” When I get upset about conditions as they are, the Lord often reminds me of that.
