Even a routine trip to your favorite grocery store or mall can be a challenge within itself. Why? Because even there evil exist. One may have to be on the look out for a criminal that may be stalking you to take your hard earned money or one of your material possessions. Even at home these days its hard to avoid or escape evil. There some, may face an ungrateful child, a cheating husband or wife and when they get there they may have to argue, fuss or fight. If that isn't enough there is always a problem to solve that is not of their own. I was once asked a series of questions by a friend of mine, because she was having a hard time. How do I cope in a world where almost everyone is evil or embracing lifestyles that doesn't please God? How do I remain strong when there are so many people out there trying to tear me down? How do I avoid temptation when I am lonely or have no one to love or care for me? What do I do when people that have lifestyles, that make me uncomfortable approach me? How do I keep myself from becoming just like everyone else? What do I do when I am In The Face Of Evil? The easy answer to all these questions is to seek God and read your Bible. Draw your strength from him for the word says," Great strength comes from faith in God Zechariah 12:5". Even Jesus himself, Gods only son, had to face evil daily , so he often prayed and drew strength from his father. When the devil tried to lure Jesus into sin by temptation , he leaned on his fathers word , then rejected him. Jesus son of God, followed his Fathers instructions and never allowed the sins of the world to overtake him. That is what we as Christians, God-fearing and good people should do. Even though the world may be cruel or evil, we should never become slaves of the world. Instead we should embrace our good side or our God-fearing side especially, In The Face Of Evil!
To those who are blessed to read this I have some sound advice. Be aware of the world you live in and never be surprised when you are faced with evil. For it is written that the devil is the prince of the earth and he knows his day are numbered. His job is to seek and destroy. And he will use anybody to for his own purpose. We also need to learn what the face of evil looks like and learn how to deal with it when we face it. So take my advice when someone evil approaches you or tries to tear you down. Pray without fail, then know that the battle you face is not yours and the people who try to hard tear you down will have to face the wrath of God. Be confident for you are a child of God and God takes care of those who love him. Be patient for those who wait on the Lord will be forever blessed. Then forgive those who have sinned against you and place all of your burdens or troubles into the hands of the Lord. For God our Father in Heaven has all power and there is none greater than he that has created us.Your struggle is now over because God our Father in Heaven always answers prayers and always keeps his promises. When faced with evil all that one has to say, "The devil is a lie and I rebuke you in the mighty name of Jesus!" Then the devil shall flee and those who follow him or his ways will leave you alone forever. A word or verses from the bible a day, shall keep those who are evil and the devil away. In The Face Of Evil!
