Recently, we all got outraged when a woman cut the hand of a little boy, claiming he stole. The boy’s hand was eventually amputated. A young boy was bathed with hot water, maimed forever for peeping through the window to see someone taking her shower, the list continuous. I saw on Joy News how an educated man, full of all the academic credentials, beat up his wife till she became unconscious in the presence of their little children. The days we live in are evil days. It does appear, we are going back to the mosaic days, “evil for evil”, “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”. What you don’t know is that, evil has never, and will never triumph over good.
“Fret not because of evil men or envious of those who do wrong”. (Psalm 37:1)
Evil hearts do not only cause harm, they are also experts in creating confusion. They twist the facts, mislead, lie, avoid taking responsibility, deny reality, make up stories and withhold information. They do this to perpetuate hate among loving people. Listen to them on radio, TV, press conferences and press releases.
“Lead me Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies- make your way straight before me”. Psalm 5:8
We have alot of “Sanballats” in this country. If they are not the ones building, then it cannot be done, we must lie to destroy it. They then try to tag you with all kinds of evil adjectives. (Nehemiah 6:8)
It is sad, that most of these evil things are perpetuated by believers who are supposed to be “salt of the earth and light of the world”.
“Wolves among God’s people, wearing sheep clothes”. Jeremiah 23:14
Can we live a more orderly life, by practicing what we teach as Christians? We must pull down every stronghold of the enemy. Evil must not gain roots over good.
Stay blessed always and remember to love someone and mean it.
