Exodus 15:3 (NKJV) The Lord is a man of war; The Lord is His name.
Regardless of how you or I may feel about it, the real truth and fact remains: our country is at war, and has been for several years. War is a perplexing, disheartening, It brings to the surface of our lives many of our worst fears and deepest prejudices, and along with them, some perplexing questions about God. War is always about territory, and more times than not we are targets of war especially as it relates to the enemy of our soul!
If that’s true for us as adults, just think about the questions that must be processing around in the heads of our children: Does God choose sides? Does God like war? Why does God allow wars to happen at all? How does God want us to think about those our country are at war with? How should we pray?
Point to ponder- If you have a child or are close to a child, speak to him/her about these things. Let them see that you don’t have all the answers and that you have some me questions like them. But most of all, assure them that God is in control and allows things to happen that we don’t understand, but ultimately the Lord is still in control. Ultimately at the end of this war concern those that are in Christ will be Victorious!
In His Service,
Pastor James Baker, Jr.
