It is easy to get caught up in what is happening today throughout the world, especially in America. Politics, finances, wars, society and the list goes on of the loads of problems and debates that involve these topics. But we are called to be soldiers in Christ and not to get entangled in such things.
“No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.”
II Timothy 2:4 NKJV
Do not get me wrong we are to be watchful and be in tune a bit with what is going on, but not allow ourselves to become wrapped up and trapped in the things of the world and this life. We have to know that God is in control and all things happen for a reason. We must understand that what is happening in the world right now is what is suppose to happen for the end times and it is our duty primarily to pray for our lost world and leaders.
“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
I Corinthians 16:13 NKJV
The devil loves using the cares of this life to trip us up and cause us to lose sight of God. He wants us to get so caught up in the affairs of this life that we forget about the power of the Lord and rather focus on the puny power of our mortal leaders. The way to make a difference in this life is by first being filled with the Spirit of God, then telling others about Jesus Christ while praying diligently for all and then being watchful as the end draws near.
