Psalm 78, verse 9 holds some perplexing words for us as children of God. It tells us, “The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.”
What causes a people to turn back in the day of battle-especially when they’ve been given a weapon to win? The New Testament tells us we have mighty weapons for bringing down strongholds and bringing into captivity ideologies which have defied the Word of God. No doubt, the enemies of truth are within our gates, threatening all that we hold dear and defying all who would challenge their thoughts.
What you and I choose to do now really matters even more than we are able at this time to imagine. It’s time for all of us to move forward.
It’s time to pray.
