Fear of Faith You Choose

This last week has been a week of horror for the United States. A week where a dysfunctional mother was killed by her tortured son that went on to kill twenty babies and several adults. A normal mind would ask why. Many people will blame God for such a horrendous event, but God doesn't kill babies, He doesn't call them home to be a flower in some garden in the sky. No, the devil stole these children! He reached down into a tormented mind and told him there was no other way. Just what goes on in the mind of a man like that we will never know. Many writers try to tell stories about it but we really have no idea. We do know that
he felt he could no longer live with what he had done. Maybe he felt like he was saving them from a terrible life, maybe in his tortured mind he was protecting them. We will never know.

Two weeks ago, that community was celebrating. They had a tree lighting service where the whole town came. There was face painting and singing, everyone was full of joy and now the whole community is in mourning. I was thrilled to see the Billy Graham Chaplains there ministering to the people. They even brought grief dogs to minister to the crowds.

Where do we go from here? I have read so many stories and posts on the internet where people are afraid to send there kids to school or let them out of their homes but we can't live like that. We can't let the devil win! We must fight back! We need to pray for divine protection over our children everyday. We need to lay hands on them and bless them. We need to pray for our kids and our nation. God is a good God but if we live in fear His hands our tied. When Job lost his children he said "The thing that I feared has come upon me" Fear drives out faith. You each have a choice, you can believe God's Word, believe in His divine protection, His love for you or you can live in fear and never leave your own home. Joshua said "As for me and my house we will serve the Lord" That is what I choose. I choose to believe that God has a plan for me and my family, a good plan and if evil comes to my household He will see us through.

Where evil abounds grace does abound more. Choose Faith, don't live in fear. God is good and His mercies endures forever. God bless you and keep the joy of Christmas in your home. God sent Jesus into this world for such a time as this.
