Everybody’s heard the quote, “evil triumphs when good men do nothing.”
The reverse is also true, when good men do something, evil cannot triumph. Our authority and power was granted to us some 2000 years ago and our success is now seated in victory at the right hand of the Father. It’s a done deal. The good guys always win.
When good men DO something, everything changes.
I can be such a defeatist sometimes. That is simply wisdom that comes from experience and so I really have to battle against it. It’s a struggle, I tell ya! Who you gonna believe, your lying eyes or what God himself has said? And by “lying eyes,” I mean, a perfectly valid and reasonable observation that some 90% of people will be in complete agreement with.
God never told us to let our own reason reign supreme. In fact, the Bible says, “there is a way that seems right to a man…” Or my favorite, “lean not into your own understanding…” Those are awesome verses for the pessimists among us. Don’t believe your own negativity.
Anyway, I just wanted to offer some encouragement because it is the nature of the media to bring us doom and gloom, click bait. Social media also often runs on negativity, because we tend to talk about our troubles or our strife. Laughing here, but almost no one gossips about the good news! Perhaps we should like, Hey guess what, I saw someone doing something incredible the other day…..
I really have, I have spent all month watching good men do something in assorted ways, and it really matters, it has the power to change everything.
