Still Not Fair

6 They spread a net for my feet—
I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path—
but they have fallen into it themselves. Psalm 57:6

If you think about it, it’s really unfair in a odd way.

The nations and rulers who desperately try to stamp out Christianity really don’t have a chance against the power of God. They torture pastors, burn churches, take women and children hostage, and still Christianity shines bright. I am not at all diminishing the sacrifices that these people make for their faith. After all, it’s extremely easy for me to write what I just wrote without ever having to experience those atrocities.

  • Families are devastated.
  • Innocent lives are ruined.
  • Churches go for months without their pastors and elders.

From a purely secular standpoint, nobody should be able to withstand such devastation for long. But somehow, those who remain find the courage and strength to carry on, and the church grows stronger still.

As you remember the Persecuted Church around the world today, would you pray for healing?

As mentioned, it’s easy for me to type out these words, but I really don’t know what it’s like to have my family ripped away from me because of what they believe. I really don’t know what it’s like to have my pastor tortured for his faith, and what that can do to your psyche and spirit. Pray for supernatural healing for those pastors who are enduring torture for Christ’s sake.
