From Your Pastor's Heart - July 10, 2016


Good Morning Family,

            Flags all across the country are at half-mast as once again we see the Satan the Enemy inspire another individual to act upon hate and anger.  There are no words to describe the many ways in which the fabric of America is coming unraveled at the seams.  This all has been a long time in coming with the situation seemingly coming to a head over and over again.  Those in leadership in government dividing people and hate groups spewing ridiculousness lit the fuse and caused it to boil over once again this past week.

            I really am at a loss as to what, politically, can ultimately help put things back together.  I fear there is no help on that front anywhere down the line.  Neither political party has anything to offer, let alone any godly leader to put forth to lead the country.   However, we can be assured that the Lord is in control of this topsy-turvy world as man seeks to destroy and as Satan lies and hates his way to the end of all things.

            We must commit to pray for police officers and their families who are in harm’s way and who protect us night and day in the struggle to uphold the law.  As I count it, there have been at least 6 officers killed and 8 wounded just this week.  We pray for those who are hospitalized that God would grant them recovery and that they would turn to Him as their hope.  We pray for the families of those who are caring for them.

            We also pray for those families who have lost their loved one who had served so faithfully.  The shock, anger, resentment, and even fear that must be surrounding those families must be overwhelming.  The only answer for those families is to rest in the peace of Christ.   Christ is the only hope for America as well.  He always has been and always will be.

            The truth is that this world will never be a Utopia.  It will never be a man-made peace loving place.  Satan is the ruler of this world and the prince and power of the air and he will continue his evil.  BUT GOD, holds the title deed to that which is rightfully His and He is coming soon to reclaim all that is His.  I pray we remain faithful to Him as we see the end draw nearer and nearer with each coming day.

             As always, my prayer is for you to, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”   II Timothy 2:15                                                                                                     

Humbly Yours,

Bro. Steve
