You Can Make The Difference
I tossed and turned all night, I called out looking for my precious sleep, but it wasnít to be found. My heart was heavier than I could bear, as I layed there; I pondered why do we as Christians go through so much travail? Sickness, disease, and poverty. And why are we devastated by natural disasters. Why would a loving God let one waist away with a debilitating disease? Or allow our finances to bottom out to where we have to live in a community thatís riddled with drugs and gang violence. What if you were one of the people that went through hurricane Katrina, or lost a love one in the 9/11 World Trade Center bombings? Why? Why? Why?
What if there wasnít any Christians sick in hospitals? I guess the Christian doctors and nurses would still be good witnesses for the glory of God. I have visited many Christians who have been given very few days to live, pain and suffering was painted on the faces of their loved ones, but these mighty warriors was of good cheer, their continence radiated in such a way that it filled the room with life rather than death. They chose in death to give life.
What if your circumstances dictated you to live in a community where territorial spirits has free range? You find yourself in an area that drugs and gang violence has been established from days gone by. Your cupboards are lean and the only way you can fend off winters furry is with electric heaters. I know of a mighty warrior living this life, rather than being confined to the prison of her home as most, she steps out in faith to pull confused souls from the pits of hell, one at a time, she doesnít leave her home with a bullet proof vest, she chooses the shield of faith. She doesnít carry a gun in her pocket; sheís packin the sword of the Spirit. What little food she has she shares on a moments notice with who ever has a need. Rather than peep out the windows at the death around her, she chooses to boldly bring forth life and to show thereís a better way. What the world perceives as a death sentence, she perceives as a golden opportunity to change the world."You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. (Matt 5:14-15) NIV)
What if you lost everything in a natural disaster? Or lost a loved one at ground zero?
What we see as tragedies or misfortunes arenít as they seem! We need to take off the world and walk in the Spirit. So often we get caught up in the news of the day, everywhere we look thereís death and destruction, wars and rumors of wars, thatís the picture the world paints. Ground zero isnít a place of death, but a place of life and new beginnings. Today I challenge you to look at your situations through spiritual eyes! Find ground Zero! Start a new beginning today! Let's touch the heart's of the world for Christ Jesus. Remember; Calvary is our Ground Zero! And the veil was rent!You Can Make The Difference!
