Dear God-tracker


Romans 8:31
What then shall we say to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?

"I was reading that Christians and Jews are the most persecuted people in the world," said Tony as we prepared to pray that morning. "We have so many enemies around the world. Why do you think that is," he asked? I tried to explain that it is has to do with the fact both Christians and Jews are worshipers of the one true God Almighty, while the world is under the curse of sin where Satan is lord. Ultimately it's a battle between good and evil. Satan hates God's people and will do all he can to wipe them from the face of the earth. As followers of Christ, Christians are particularly persecuted, because Satan continually attempts to undermine Christ's victory over him at Calvary. My friend grunted some response under his breath as we began our prayer time.

I knew that Tony was very angry, and rightly so. However, even though Satan is continually attacking God's people, Jesus has already conquered him by bearing the wages of our sin when he died. At the cross, the Son of God, who was without sin, humbled himself by taking on the punishment of sin. Jesus became sin for us so that, in him, we could become God's righteousness. This was how God demonstrated his love for the world in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. And so, through the humility of the cross Jesus triumphed over sin, death and Satan, making a public spectacle of the forces of evil. The Bible tells us that if we confess Jesus as Lord and believe he died and rose again, we will be saved from sin, death and Satan. Therefore, in Christ we are more than conquerors!

"You're already a winner, Tony!" I said as we concluded our prayer time. "But your victory is not over flesh and blood but over the forces of evil behind that flesh and blood. The weapons you fight with are not natural weapons like the gun or the sword; the weapons you fight with are divine and mighty! They have great power to tear down spiritual strongholds and to overcome all the power of Satan. Two of those weapons," I explained, "are prayer and love. Listen to what Jesus said: 'Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.' You see, perfect love casts out fear and only love can change your enemy's heart. So stand strong in prayer and love. Always remember, God is on your side and if God is for you who can be against you?"

Don't Give Up, Look Up!

Give me the strength to love those that persecute us and pray for their salvation

"Lord Almighty, I get so very angry when I read how Christians are being persecuted around the world. I also get angry at the people in my own life that bully or persecute me! I realise that this is justifiable anger, but you have not called me to fight back against people. Rather, you have called me to fight against the forces of evil behind the evil acts of people. Therefore, I choose to not hate those who persecute us. I choose by your grace to love them. I pray for the persecutors of Christians and Jews around the world that you would make your Word plain to them. Convict them of guilt in regard to sin and bring them to repentance. I pray also for the Suffering Church that you would comfort, heal and deliver them from their attackers. Give them strength to stand up under persecution. And Lord, give me the strength to love those that persecute us and pray for their salvation. To the glory of God I pray. Amen."
