I Will Not Fear

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
Today is the anniversary of 9/11, and as a country we pause in solemnity to remember the people who lost their lives on that tragic day at the hand of terrorists. We recall with gratitude and honor those who gave their lives in the service of others. We meditate on the horror of the day and pray that we’ll never see an attack of that kind again. We pray for peace and comfort for those who mourn their lost loved ones.
When I think of 9/11, I not only think of the tragedy, but I also bring to remembrance the American resolve and the spirit of unity that formed as people rushed to aid the injured and to comfort the hurting. I have the picture in my mind of tired, blood-stained workers lifting high the American flag as a sign of hope. I also think of the prayer, the candle lighting, the fundraising, and the other acts of love performed for strangers. Wounded but not destroyed.
Today we have many enemies. Terrorists have not repented of their murderous acts. As we mourn, they celebrate. Their religion tells them to do it. They won’t stop. They don’t desire peace. We could spend our lives in fear of what they may do, but then they’ve won, haven’t they? What do terrorists want? They want to kill and incite terror. They want  to terrorize us into submission unto a false god. NO!
I will not fear what man can do. I’ve got a God who is stronger and mightier than anything the enemy can throw at me. Even if I lose my life, I’m alive in Christ. When we are in the Lord, we cannot be destroyed. Like Daniel in the lion’s den, we are surrounded by danger, but if we put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have nothing to fear.
As we continue to remember 9/11, we must not forget to pray for peace. The peace we desire is not a false peace negotiated by crooked politicians and enemies with false smiles. The peace we pray for comes only from the Prince of Peace. Praying that every terrorist would fall to his knees and know the power and love of Jesus Christ. Praying for eyes to be opened. Praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Praying that every man and woman would be ready for the coming of Jesus.
