And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.  {2 Corinthians 9:8}NKJV

Lately I have been reminding myself to guard my heart from words that others say to me, and the lies that others live as if they are truth. Those of us who love God, and want to walk with Him in every way find it hard to understand the anger and hostility that is ever increasing all around us. We know that the enemy of our souls is in the center of darkness and destruction. So let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your father in heaven. [Matthew 5:16]

Just think on this, God's grace toward us is abounding, more than enough, overflowing and ready for us to take hold of. So, why don't we realize that He has already supplied everything that we need? Oh, the little foxes, that spoil the vine, the necessity of the mundane, the everydayness of life that creeps in to rob us of being in the secret place with our Lord. Where He is, is no darkness, but life everlasting!
 Our prayer and intercession for those who riot, needs to be persistent. The devil is the one who whispers into ears, You have not been treated fairly! Take action! Of course if someone really has been taken advantage of they have every right to take action, but I am speaking of those who kind of go along with the flow of rebellion. Anger has taken hold of them, and they are not listening to the truth of the gospel or of the abundance of love that God has for the broken. Jesus calls out, Come, sit at my feet, I will comfort you, in your distress, and sorrow. I will lift that heaviness that seems to overtake you. I will fill you with peace.
