8 years ago today, life as we knew it took a tragic blow when the enemy of America terrorized us like never before! The day started like this...
and ended like this...
To try and find a reason for how this horror could occur is futile. To say that it is rooted in a spirtual battle is to come to the only logical conclusion!
Ephes. 6:12 (NASB-U)
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
So many lives were instantly changed in a moment on this fateful day. Mamas and Daddys, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, sisters and brothers, friends and co-workers...all gone in an instant! Those left behind with nothing but their grief to wrap themselves in and, for those who believe, the assurance that their loved ones who had embraced Him were at peace. Comfort that would be sadly overshadowed by their grief initially, but comfort none-the-less!
None of us knows what the future holds. None of us knows what evil may be lurking right around the corner. I've read the final chapter, though, and guess what? Ultimately...He wins!
Rev. 17:14 (MsgB)
They will go to war against the Lamb but the Lamb will defeat them, proof that he is Lord over all lords, King over all kings, and those with him will be the called, chosen, and faithful."
This doesn't mean we'll never be touched by tragedy or mourn again as a nation, but we may take comfort in the fact that the One we call Faithful does have the final say! So until then...
