Since when did America become fearful of coming to the rescue in order to save the lives of others; not to mention an ENTIRE country? Saving the lives of others is an act of love. We must not be fearful of doing what is righteous and good for our fellow man.
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18 NIV).
Yes, during war there are repercussions to think about; but aren’t the mighty supposed to protect the small? America must do everything it can to help defend Ukraine. That’s what God is all about; He is bigger and stronger than us all. He rescues us from our enemies.
“He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me” (Ps. 18:17).
There comes a time when we must stop thinking of ourselves and just do what is right for the good of others. We cannot let the fear of evil rulers drive our decisions, or stop us from forging ahead and doing what’s right and honorable. We cannot allow others to threaten us.
“For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended” (Rom. 13:3).
Doing right does not mean we won’t die. We will all die one day. What do we gain by worrying about ourselves when so many others are experiencing pain and suffering? How can we go on about our lives without helping; especially when we can do something about it?
We all think there are things we still need to do on earth, but I’d much rather die early, because I didn’t turn away from those in need, and later receive my rewards in Heaven. How about you? It is better to die with honor, than to live selfishly. We should fear only God; it’s a healthy fear. For He is the one who punishes evil, and rewards the righteous.
“Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Pet. 1: 17-19).
Still afraid? We know not, anyhow, when our time will come to die. Receive Jesus Christ today, and follow him. He will guide you and protect you, and you’ll live with him in Heaven all the days of your life. For the remainder of your years on earth, you will have the Holy Spirit to guide you and remove your fear.
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom. 10:9).
Fight for what’s right. Fight for good prevailing over evil. In the end, the silver lining is that God will make everything right. We are therefore guaranteed victory even in death, which has no hold over us.
“When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “ ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory’ “ (1 Cor. 15: 54).
Prayer: Dear God, help our leaders receive wisdom to close the skies over Ukraine. Please care for and protect the innocent refugees and people of Ukraine. Give strength to those fighting for the glory of Ukraine. Thank you for the compassionate countries helping Ukraine, and thank you for the brave soldiers and civilians protecting Ukraine and its borders. Bless them all in the name of Jesus Christ. Turn the enemies from their ways, and turn their hearts to You, instead. May Your wisdom and will be done. In Jesus’ name, Amen

They will be saved Me. Angela. You and I are just enough to tip it over the top. It’s in God’s hands and I have come to see and believe that Satan stepped in at just the wrong time. God’s will is stronger I feel it. Those Russian Mother’s are Calling Their Son’s Home. Keep our faith strong. I’m not writing lately but I have been trying to find a song or do of some lyrics to place up. Do find time , if you can. I also got your link up. It’s been a rough week or so. God’s Grace is with us.
So many people have been praying! My post on the 40 days: https://angelaslittleattic.com/2022/03/24/victory-for-ukraine-war-by-biblical-day-40/ has made it to Ukraine. I hope they are encouraged by God’s Holy Scriptures. I saw last night talk of peace talks. I feel it too; I feel this horrific war and humanitarian crisis, show what can happen when so many people pray. God is God of Miracles! He is Stringer and Mightier than the enemy. Victory to Ukraine! In Jesus’ name! Are you on Facebook? There’s a Stand with Ukraine group in SC, where you could post your Ukraine art. Let’s keep in touch. God bless your weekend, in Jesus’ name! 💙🙏🏼💛

Just didn’t think about it because I put your link on mine at your request.
It’s absolutely ok! You can do it. I gave permission and you asked. I appreciate you! I’m sorry you’ve been sick. I know how it is. I’m just coming out of chronic illness and now my husband is dangerously seriously ill., I’m sitting in the hospital next to his bed because he just came out of surgery. I’ll be writing about his testimony and ours in God’s timing. Just focusing on him right now. Jesus take the wheel! Blessings for your healing as well, in Jesus’ name! 💙
