Here’s what I posted on Facebook earlier this morning:

I will………………….never forget.

Innocence attacked by evil.

But the effort to weaken did the reverse.

May this be true for our nation.

And may this be true for us as individuals.

There are a variety of things that are counter-intuitive when it comes to Christianity.

The power of weakness is on that list.

Evil, blinded as it is, thinks carnally.

It thinks that more bad conquers more good.

Bad never conquers good.

Good sometimes just gives up.

When Christians recall the power of weakness, though, the victory has already been won.

It just might take some time for the delivery to show up at the door.

This is the promise of the Bible.

This is the pattern of history.

This is the principle that has sustained and blessed you just as it has sustained and blessed me.

In today’s reading from the One-Year Bible, the Apostle Paul reminds us that we should boast of our weaknesses.

Why? Because such boasting actually exalts the strength of God poured into us through our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“For when I am weak, I am strong.” (2 Cor. 12:10)

As Zechariah wrote some 2,400 years ago, it is not by our might that we have hope for this life and the next, but instead by the Spirit of the Lord.

A dozen years ago, evil men thought evil schemes against the innocent would stir and steer our nation toward isolationism and abandonment of foreign friends.

Evil did not succeed.

There has been suffering, yes.

Particularly among many in the military and their families.

But our resolve to resist terrorism is greater than ever.

Evil miscalculated.

Let’s always confess our need for faith in God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the power that flows into us through the Holy Spirit.

That way, we’ll always have all the strength we need to claim the victory that is already ours.

As always, I love you
