Yesterday there were shockwaves that spread through the city of London as 5 people were killed and 40 injured through a suspected Terror Attack! An attacker mowed down people on the pavement of Westminster Bridge and crashed into the railings outside the Houses of Parliament. The attacker then fled his vehicle and ran toward the Parliament armed with a knife.
An off duty Policeman Officer, PC Palmer age 48, had just called of duty and was unarmed at the time of the attack. He was Stabbed to death in front of onlookers. It wasn't long before the attacker was shot dead as police ran to the scene within 6 minutes. The attacker has not been named by police, although they think it was Islamic-Related Terrorism. As we know London is the Heart of the UK. We have an enemy who is seeking to attack every heart. Satan is his name and he works through the vulnerable, the weak, the ones who have no hope, and ones who have been brought up in broken homes, fatherless as well as rejected.
Religious deception is also his tool. The bible says in 1 John 5:19. We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
We have a HOPE and that HOPE is JESUS!! JESUS says "I am the way the Truth and the life"! As this Terrorist was totally out of control and recklessly under satans control he also knew what he was doing. This was NOT an accident! As we surrender to Jesus who brings us PEACE and NOT WAR, LOVE and NOT HATE, HOPEand NOT HOPELESSNESS, then our lives can be steered in the right Direction! After all... HE IS THE WAY!
John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
The terrorist only had one purpose and direction. That was to kill and destroy anything in his path. The heart of Jesus and His purpose is to bring love, healing, peace, reconciliation, forgiveness, hope, new-direction, and new life! To reconnect us with God the Father the creator of the universe and giver of life! He wants to jump into the driving seat of your car and steer your life in the right direction. Will you open the trunk of your car today and get Jesus out? You may not know he's been there waiting for you to open it up and allow him in the drivers seat! Let Him steer you into life full of purpose and true direction! All you need to do is open your heart and call on His name.
Even as Christians we still need to surrender our lives to Him daily. We have to keep being saved from ourselves and the corrupt world! The only way we shine our light is through complete surrender. Its the light that overcomes the darkness. Its the light that helps us to see what road we're walking on. It helps us to see the potholes and hazards that are ahead that can cause a collision. When Jesus is in control of our life He drives directing us on the path of fullness. He leaves behind NOT a trail of Injured bodies but a trail of Spirit-filled, Passionate, Purposefully-Powerful men and women who are overflowing with love, compassion and the ability to make a difference in this dark world. Whose light shine as they are recognized as His and He is recognized through them.
Find your identity in Christ. "You don't know who you are until you know whose you are!!" Get Christ out the trunk. Stop trying to steer your own life and give Him access to the drivers seat. Lets turn the high beams on and Light Up the Darkness!
We pray for Peace in London and Comfort for the families who have lost loved ones. We spread the net over the plans and schemes of satan who would incite terror. We proclaim "Shine the light of Christ in that Capital!" In Jesus Mighty Name we pray. Amen
