“Fire cracker season” has started again. Check out Lori’s post from last year to understand what I mean. I pray we have the grace and patience to endure this season with a Christ-like response!
[Added note: I should also mention that over the next month or so will be at least 2 major Thai-yai Buddhist and Animist festivals, so it means it’s time to pray extra prayers! Please do pray! The area where I live is already a spiritually dark and oppressive place – add to that the fact that the majority of people who live here are making special offerings to worship Satan… and well, you get the picture hopefully.
But praise be to God who raised Christ “from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet…!” (Ephesians 1:20-22) What a mighty and powerful God we believe in whom we can call our Father in Heaven and Redeemer!]
