The Bible says that “when the righteous prospers, the city rejoices…..” Yes, when a “good” man rules, there is peace and abundance in the land. Just the opposite happens when an evil man reigns over the land.
It occurs to me that believers cannot just afford to fold hands and do nothing while evil prevails over the land and where there are perversions in the city.
Believers must rise and pray. They must pray against the reign of evil. It is the power of prayers that can defeat evil. And the prayer of a righteous man works wonder.
So, to every believer and those who love the Lord, let us rise (and continue to rise) and take up the challenge and pray for the deliverance of the land from evil before it overtakes us all.
Only the effective prayers of the believers can defeat the power of evil that is in the land.
Rise up and knock out the evil from the land and see righteousness reign again!
I have always thought about evils that prevail in our society today. The presence of evil and the people who commit such act called evil often worries me.
My mind flashed back to the garden of Eden. In the garden, God told Adam and Eve to avoid eating the apple because if they do, the apple will open their eyes to the world of Evil. So, we can deduce that Adam and Eve did not know anything called Evil or we can say that it did not exist then.
But we all know– they did eat the apple courtesy of the devil’s temptation.
Talking about the devil, if you remove the letter “d” from his name, we have “evil”. something tells me that the author of evil must be the devil himself.
Yes, devil was the first to disobey God and leads all other and he is still leading others to disobey God.
But one quick thing is that Adam and Eve chose to listen to the devil. So, had they not listen to that evil voice, we will probably not be where we are today.
So, choose carefully who and what you listen to.
There is always a voice telling you to do something bad or terrible. You can choose to listen to the voice or you can choose to shut the voice out.
If you decide to command the evil voice to shut up and get lost, I believe that “the voice” will realize that you know who you are and that you understand your authority.
Good has the overwhelming capacity to overcome evil to the extent that we allow or enable it.
Choose to do good today and see the world become a better place.
