Psalm 83: Big

Posted by on Sep 25, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Everywhere I look, the tide is changing. The moral and spiritual boundaries of our culture have shifted so as to promote decadence, not restrain it. The champions of tolerance are intolerant of truth and of those who strive to preserve it. Growing contempt for and opposition to Christ-followers cannot be denied.

Where once there was appreciation for the light of God’s word and people, there is now aggravation. “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.” (John 3:19, ESV)

The enemies of the gospel loom large … their voice is loud, their influence far-reaching, their threats as ominous as an impending storm …

But thankfully, the God of the gospel is bigger.

I need Him to be big; bigger than I or my adversaries could ever be. I need Him to stem the tide, contain the cultural erosion and calm the storm. If not, I need God to be big in me, full of enough strength that I can faithfully endure every bit of the hostility that billows around me and any who name the name of Christ.
