Trust in the Lord and the Power of His Might

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NKJV) “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,  Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.  9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways,  And My thoughts than your thoughts.

Why does God allow tragedy?  I’ve heard this question asked in many different ways.  “Why would God allow wars to rage, killing innocent people?”  “What about injustices in the world?”  “Why are there epidemics?  “Why do horrible things happen?”

Most people want to put the blame on God.  When Adam and Eve paid more attention to satan than God, sin entered the equation, corrupting what God had made perfect.  Satan become the ruler of this world  (John 12:31)

Satan has the ability to influence people and natural events.

When Christ died on the cross for our sins, he redeemed us spiritually, however all natural things have not yet been redeemed. (Romans 8:23) This will occur when Satan has been defeated once and for all at the end of the one thousand year reign of Christ. (Revelation 20:10)

Currently satan is “the god of this world.”  When Adam fell, he usurped dominion over the earth and the heavens above it.  Throughout the ages this war has been raging.  God has a plan of redemption and it will be carried out to the letter.  Our enemy is not God, it is satan and all who follow him.  The battle lines are drawn!  (Romans 8:22-24)

Through Christ we have once again been given authority over all the powers of the enemy.  Power to reverse what the enemy has defiled through the power of prayer and the name of Jesus!  (Luke 10:18-19)

PRAYER: Thank you Jesus for restoring and redeeming us as only You can!  Help us to walk in faith and power and take back what the enemy has stolen through deception and cunning!  What he has defiled with lies You have restored with TRUTH.  Amen!
