Early yesterday morning, the city of Dayton was rocked with a senseless mass shooting. The day before, the city of El Paso, Texas experienced the same thing.
Why are these senseless tragedies happening at such a seemingly rapid pace?
Where is God in all of this?
I wish I had the answers to these questions.
I do know one thing–evil is behind anything that is evil and the only way to overcome evil is by leveraging the power of God.
Our society is sick and needs God more than ever before.
Pray for the families of those afflicted by these horrible tragedies. Pray for the souls of those who had no idea their final day on earth was going to be delivered to them through an evil-infested human being.
Heavenly Father, rise up against this evil that’s infiltrated our world. Soften the hearts of those who’ve gone wayward and no longer live in the Truth. Help me be a vessel of Your light.
Ephesians 6:12, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (ESV)
