Christians are wasting valuable time each day reading Social Media, watching News Chanel’s, and being otherwise focus on capturing every bit of news about President Trump and the activities and statements of the wicked. Many of them are transferring the dregs of discouragement to other Believers.
Satan is happy about that. Not only are they becoming incrementally weaker, but are being chocked full of anxiety and stress. They have little time left for prayer or the freshness and renewing value of God’s word. Their only boost of morale does not come from God, but from some positive statement or report about President Trump.
Beloved, the mouth of the snare is clearly revealed. The “spider” of life’s cares is waiting to inject you with the poison of fear and hopelessness. It will choke the word out of your “soil!” The result will be inability to trust God and a strong penchant to rely on politics to deliver you.
Come away with the Holy Spirit into the place of peace and trust. Get in discussions with other Believers about something fruitful. You cannot do anything except pray about the wickedness exploding in the world. But you have the option of refusing to let it pile energy/faith-robbing burdens on your mind and spirit.
So if you really want to win this battle, pull yourself away from the “gloom injector” and fight the good fight. If you were stricken with a terrible disease, would you rather continually hear everything destructive about it, or hear about everything that could be done to cure you?
The fact is, evil cannot triumph when God’s people are strong spiritual and faithful. No evil person can attain power when God’s people are powerful spiritually.
“For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.”
“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.” – Psalm 62:11
