“Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.” — Deuteronomy 31:6
Let’s use our anger towards evil and injustice for a change.
Let’s stand in the gap for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
If you have gone on any form of media, you have seen just a glimpse of the evil going on in this world. I don’t want to dwell on the negative, but knowledge is power and turning a blind eye won’t create change.
God told us that how we treat the least of these is how we treat Him in Heaven.
Knowing all the evil that is in this world can be overwhelming. I used to be a person who refused to acknowledge what was going on because I could barely handle the pain, but God is showing me that isn’t the plan He has for us.
Jesus went up to the mountains to pray, but He also spent His entire life taking action. He went to the hurting and sick, He pressed on, He didn’t give up even when it seemed hopeless.
Spending time alone in prayer and in the Word is vital to our walk, but going and serving is just as important.
When I think about the evil that is happening to the children and less fortunate, the tears just flow. I remind God of his word and hold on to the hope that He will make change.
Evil won’t be eradicated until the return of our Savior, but we can do everything it takes to try and make it a little better while we are here.
We are called to be servants. We are called to go and preach to the ends of the earth.
If you aren’t sure where your purpose in the Kingdom is just yet, start by serving those who need help.
Let’s pray that love would be our first emotion toward others, in all circumstances. Let’s be Christians that set this world on fire. We can become so loving and selfless that the world will have to notice and want to know how we are this way.
I am striving to not just use my words to make change, but to use my actions to shout even louder. If we truly become like Jesus, we are called to take action, to pursue, and to serve even when it feels impossible.
We are equipped, my friends. This world needs light, it needs hope, it needs help. And we are just the very thing that can show them how.
The second you accepted Jesus as the Savior of your heart, you became capable and worthy to do these things!
Remember you are here for such a time as this. Let’s go be world changers y’all.
