My home page news site is headlined by boys warning of ISIS attacks, militia threatening showdowns on national land, refugee losses, and Donald Trump. It seems there is evidence of arrogance, self-elevation, and disregard for life in every corner we peer into in this world.
History proves there are times and places when the tide of evil seems to go unchecked, so overwhelming that not one should have survived destruction. However, even an honest reflection of my own life reveals a saving and sustaining love that carries me through the darkest times. Opposition in this world is real – and many times quite intense. But I trust in the faithfulness of God to do battle on my behalf.
O LORD, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever. Psalm 12:7
