So, here we are after 9/11 in a world that is full of fear and insecurity. The stock market takes wild swings with every rumor. No one trusts their politicians, shoot, they don’t trust anybody or anything. We live in a world where most of the people are alone. The orphan spirit is so prevalent in society. Families wind up all over the world. Mine is scattered from Alaska to the tip of Florida and now to California and Atlanta. To get together is almost impossible. Yes, fear and insecurity is in the air.
It is such a strong influence, and we walk under it every day. Think about it. If you watch TV or listen to the news, that’s all you hear. I used to watch the news all the time, and I still watch a good bit. But I had to pull back when I found myself thinking constantly about how bad things were getting. We fall under the lie that it will never be better for our kids than it was for us. We begin declaring lies that America is losing her greatness, and that we are falling apart economically. The market tends to feed on it’s own rumors. If you say there is going to be a housing crisis long enough, soon enough it will come true. When we speak things out , we give power into whatever we speak about. Our words make worlds. What kind of world do we want? We need to begin to speak it into existence. I want a world where love rules. I want a love where people see an army of believers who love as they go.
Love is the ultimate weapon. The greatest commandment: Love. Love your neighbor as yourself. We have to love ourselves before we can love our neighbors. Our identity has to be fully known. It’s not about what we do, it’s about who we are. We have to love ourselves. We can do that because He first loved us. How can we not love something that He made in His image; someone that He called and equipped to release His love here on the earth? So we have to love ourselves, and then we can give that love away to whomever we come in contact with.
Perfect love cast out the fear. Prefect love cast out the fear of what might happen. When we focus on Him and His goodness, our love can be released onto the market place. We really are an army, and if we all join together in love, we can change the world. We can shift the atmosphere. In fact, we should declare: No more fear! I choose to believe the good, to love everyone and to break through the fear barrier that the powers of the air are trying to establish over this country. We will not be sucked into the lies that say the sky is falling. My God is a big God. He is much bigger than the recession; the housing crisis; the political crisis or any other crisis. He shapes history; He is not forced into any box. We have to choose. I say lets release the bombs of love over the earth. We can make a difference.
