As I was preparing our agenda for last nights prayer meeting, I came to our things to pray for our world. One of the items from last month was to pray for the people who were involved in the shooting in Las Vegas. All I had to do to be relevant to the situations of our society was backspace over the name of the town and type in a new one. The line now read pray for the shooting in Texas. Something clicked in my spirit that this was too much and it should not have been that quick that something like this has affected our country again.
Satan is the head terrorist. His goal is to strike fear in the heart of man. And he is doing that.
I was talking to someone last night at Wawa. They told me how they had taken their kids into the city for an event and all that they kept doing was running their eyes back and forth keeping lookout for a rogue vehicle that might run up on the curb to injure his children. It reminded me that just last week, I was walking to the train station in Washington as I left the football game that I had just watched. There were thousands of people walking on the sidewalk with us right next to a very busy roadway. And I have to admit that several times I looked back to see if maybe there was a car that was heading over the curb.....FEAR!
All I know is that we cannot give in to this enemy. We cannot give into terrorism and fear. Our God is greater than all of this.
