The Power Of Love

This is really about the power of God. I just deleted a post called "Obama as Player." You can only guess what that was about. If you watch the video by Bishop T.D. Jakes, you'll hear him talk about how Satan will try to trap you in something that appeals to you.

Well, I was getting sucked into this whole thing about Obama, getting upset over people being taken by him, knowing that he is not good for the nation. I wasn't looking beyond this - to the Lord. I was fighting this thing in my own strength.

I only know that no matter what happens, it's going to be the power of love that makes the difference in people's lives.

Its good to read from you again. I've been busy and away from blogging for a while, but its good to be back.

Its easy to get side tracked from the real primary focus, isn't it. The Lord is ruler over the earth. Every event in life is to His advantage, whether good or evil.

If we have no other gods before Him, we will never suffer from "confusion of face." The political scene, though central to many people, is only a temporary excitement, and then usually a disappointment.

Love and righteousness will remain the key issues in life. Nationalism, culture, celebrity, secular interests, accomplishment and achievement, etc. all come and go. No one can base the purpose of life on them. Love, righteousness, trust in our Father in heaven, are and always will be the true foundation.
