I hear so many conspiracies these days. Conspiracy theories are not new. They do nothing but breed fear and suspicion. In time, they are most often proven wrong.
One of the biggest problems that I see with getting caught in conspiracy theories is that they focus on people or groups of people.
Even if there is some truth to what’s being said, we tend to demonize people and forget our struggle.
According to Ephesians 6:12, “...is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”.
Getting caught up in conspiracy theories has the potential of confusing and dissipating our spiritual energy.
I wonder if Isaiah had 2020 in mind when he spoke these words, “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them.” Isaiah 8:12.
I read this verse and thought it was perfect for today’s world, It speaks right to where we are. I love the way The Message translation puts it:
God spoke strongly to me, grabbed me with both hands and warned me not to go along with this people. He said: “Don’t be like this people, always afraid somebody is plotting against them. Don’t fear what they fear. Don’t take on their worries”.
Jesus is calling His Church to love and serve like never before, and to pray like our lives depend on it.
The church is the greatest force on earth when it’s praying! Remember the old line we use to hear all the time, “prayer changes things”. It still does!
Be at peace and don’t live in fear. God is bigger than the conspiracy theories!
I want to take a minute and update you on our move and my health. After several months, the move is complete. We are able to stop and rest for a while. The move was long and emotional, but it’s done!
The best news is that with our amazing God and a great team of doctors, my red blood cells are now producing on their own. There is no sign of cancer! I feel full of energy and ready to go!
Thank you for all the love, prayer, and support you have given us during this time. Words cannot express how grateful we are!
Thank you, Jesus, for your healing touch and thank all of you for standing with us.
We love you and hope to see many of you soon!
