Not Our Battle To Fight: God Has Won The War
I’ve hosted a website for several years, where mostly I share these thoughts and other articles about faith and life. I read a comment posted to one of my pieces about faith and God’s goodness.
A woman replied and basically said if there is an afterlife or eternity, she refuses to spend it with God. She went on to blaspheme Him and signed off with, “Hell, here I come! (Along with the rapidly growing Atheist/Agnostic population)”
“The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.” ~ Isaiah 42:13
Insulted, my first response was to reply, but the Holy Spirit said, “Hold on, tiger.” So I closed my computer, but stewed over her blatant effort to dishonor someone I love dearly. And, if that wasn’t enough, she added that there was a “growing population of Atheist/Agnostics.”
The Holy Spirit led me instead to pray for her, and her self-proclaimed population. Immediately, my attention turned to a reality that if there is a growing movement away from God, then it’s our responsibility as believers to not attack her, but to increase our efforts to share God’s word so that doubt, skepticism and disbelief don’t roll like a rising tide.
It’s easy and comfortable to stay self-contained with fellow believers, but that’s not what God called us to do. It’s also not my fight to engage this woman’s vile comments. We have a mighty warrior who has already won the war, so it’s our duty to share the good news of His victory.
God’s got this. Much Love/Respect, Scott Silverii
