This past week I have been wrestling. Wrestling with my Christian response to everything that is happening right now in our government, in our country, in our province. God, when do I stand, when do I wait? The biggest thing I am personally feeling (and I do believe we all have to go to God for that answer for our own families) is that there are some battles that matter and some that are merely distractions.
I get this picture of positioning and preparation. Suit up, pray up, get in the Word… be full of peace and ready for battle. Prepare, active waiting, watching, and listening for that moment when God calls me to the frontlines.
There is such a variety of responses right now: fear, anger, anxiety, hatred. I may not know what response everyone is called to, but I do know that the Bible is very clear that we are not to be full of hatred nor full of fear. Neither of those are godly fruit in our lives. So instead, I encourage you to not let yourself get stirred up by anyone and instead get stirred up by God.
Let’s just talk about it . . .
