When faith in God is attacked!

“They burned every place where God was worshiped…” (Psalm 74:8)
I’ve watched debates where the Atheist walk all over the Christian.
It can be very difficult to hang on to faith when the attacks come.
In Psalm 74 it went further; God attackers were killing believers.
The nation of Israel was devastated, and believers were deseprate.
Why God was letting this happen, when would God step in to help?
There are “no signs from God” (v.9), begging the question, is He there?
“But God is my king” (v.12) Asaph declares, despite this defeat.
This is our hope too, when faith in God is under attack.
And when the church seems to shrink, or implode on itself.
The failure of the church is not the failure of God.
God remains king, God remains God; atheists cannot change that.
Jesus’ followers have been under attack for centuries, and they remain!
We need to stay true to Jesus, to His way, and to His God and ours.
Stand firm in faith, hope and love, for He will come through in the end!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, I cling to faith despite all that has happened against it. But please, show Yourself soon, for the sake of those who are dying for You!

  1. Standing on the promises of God, my King.
    God made a covenant with His people to be their God.
    And yet
    there are times when God seems to be far away.
    When our adversaries arise
    and seem to have the upper hand
    or when Christians are under attack
    and the the opposition seems to be winning
    that God is God
    our Redeemer King
    who reigns forevermore
    and hears the cries of His people
    and will establish His kingdom in is time.
    We/I need to stand upon the Rock staying true to His Word
    for He has enabled His people with His presence at all times by His Spirit.
    I need to be a soldier of the cross.

    Stand up, stand up for Jesus! Stand in His strength alone,
    The arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own;
    Put on the gospel armor, and watching unto prayer,
    Where calls the voice of duty, be never wanting there.

    Stand up, stand up for Jesus! the strife will not be long;
    This day the noise of battle, the next the victor’s song;
    To him that overcometh a crown of life shall be;
    He with the King of glory shall reign eternally.
