“Don’t Worry America, Mum’s Got Your Back”
I spoke with Kathleen last night and she said, rather proudly, that an announcer on BBC America said the above statement.
Danger is always a tactical option for our enemy
The news coming out the last twelve hours has once again reminded us all that danger and death is a stark reality in a world consumed with following man-made and demonically influenced ideologies (from simple selfishness to terrorism). Our out-of-control world will always remain that way as long as we insist on ignoring our Creator God and His plan.
When we don’t embrace God’s plan we are escorted into following the god of this world’s plan. Satan’s plan is to steal, kill and destroy all and any good thing – including people, especially people.
But God is in Control
In 1994, Twila Paris wrote a song titled God Is In Control after obsessing about the world’s instability.
God spoke to Twila’s heart. “He said, ‘Just remember, people do what they will, but at the end of the day I’m the One with the ultimate authority. Remember that I am in control.’ ”
Oh, yeah. God is in control, Twila thought. The overused phrase had almost become a cliché. But as Twila reflected on the meaning of those four words, it hit her. We as humans sometimes choose to do terrible things. But the truth remains: He is in control.”
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for Your all-consuming care for us and that sometimes we get to visibly see that care.
Thank you, Lord, for friends (like Great Britain) who look out for us at a time when people in other nations and even in our own, denigrate* our government, our help and our way-of-life.
Mighty God, please use this latest terrorist attempt to bring people to You and to help us to place our trust in You in a bigger way. Help us to believe and live like You are in control. Help us to live in a more selfless way in order to do Your will on Earth like it is being done in Heaven.
Finally, Merciful Saviour, bring sweet relief and your always available salvation to the family and friends who are left behind after terrorist attacks everywhere and specifically to those of 9/11.
* I think there is a huge difference between denigrating, maligning and defaming America and openly discussing, in a polite helpful way, our “growth” areas.
