Is there any place on this earth that isn’t in a battle or a war?
In this country, in our cities, and on our streets we hear those words
“battle zone” or “war zone” used often.
We can’t even go to an outdoor country music concert, a movie theater or even school
without entering into a battle zone.
Names of countries we have never heard of and have a difficult time pronouncing,
our fighting men and women will never forget.
Words of anger and threats fly across our world by the fingertips of our leaders at the speed of light.
Is there any peaceful place on this earth?
What Else Can We Do?
The news can’t always be ignored and the battles and wars will continue.
Our hearts can grow weak from it all.
We can learn to keep our focus on God in everything we do and everything we say.
Say extra prayers for our loved ones and all those in harms way.
Pray for rational actions of our leaders to prevail.
Trust God that these things will come to pass.
Find peace where we can and not be the one responsible for the battle or the war.
The Bible Says
And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
2 Chronicles 32:8
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles.
For a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgement, and for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
Bible Trivia: Who is a shield to all who trust Him? (See Psalm 18:30) As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
