Everyone’s talking about it. We live in Texas and information has come out that ISIS is in Mexico planning car bombings in America. I have no idea if this information is accurate.
The thing about organizations like ISIS is they play on fear. They do whatever they can to get on the news. Fear is NOT of God.
They are just the latest boogie man. They are the latest Nazis, the latest Al Qaeda, the latest. I remember in the 80s we were afraid the Chinese were going to be parachuting into the U.S. (probably watched Red Dawn too many times).
I’m not saying that there isn’t a reason to be concerned…
The first scripture I ever taught to my young son (he was almost 3 year old) was 2 Timothy 1:7, “ For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (we acted it out and everything). We do not tolerate fear in our house because fear is not from God…it is always demonic. I’ve had some fearful seasons of my life, especially with fostering and concerns about protecting our babies. I’ve battled this thing. Whether it is on a big scale or a little scale, it is not from God!
I believe that news networks perpetuate fear. Think about it, they have to fill 24 hours a day on these stations…it has to be catching news…the more dramatic the better. They are by nature sowing fear into the hearts of America. Turn that crap off and read your Bible.
Remind yourself that our God is BIG! Magnify Him. Make Him bigger in your life! Have some faith man. I believe God has His hand on America, not because we are good. We aren’t good. We sacrifice our unborn, we produce more pornography than any other country probably (I have no idea if these is true…but if we aren’t the ones producing it we are surely the ones consuming it….I have only one things to say…Shades of Gray). Like everyone else America needs a savior. We can turn to the One who can save us. Our God is bigger than Islam. Jesus is the Lion and the Lamb. Everyone sees the Lamb but there will come a day when the Lion will roar.
If your are feeling creeped out by ISIS just sing this song….
I love this song because it is simple and it sticks with you.
There are no boogie men out there who can take on our God. All we have to do is turn back to Him.
And those are my thoughts about ISIS.
