Big Brother may not be watching, but his Little Brother is, a.k.a. THE INTERNET. Obviously, not all of the Internet is bad, but the potential for great harm is there.

Remember when prophecy buffs were up in arms at the possibility of grocery store scanners? That seems archaic now. And lest we get all worried about the abilities of unscrupulous individuals or companies knowing more about us than we wish, imagine where all this is going? Can the Thought Police be far behind? Can the Anti-Christ be chuckling in the wings, ready to take center stage? Don’t panic, but do get free! Get delivered. As the trends above continue, you need to be battle-ready to fight Satan before his little brother demons do a number on you.
An encouraging word: STRENGTH IN QUIETNESS
In times like these with war raging around us, evil flourishing on every side, and the faith of many growing weak, how can we maintain spiritual balance? Isaiah 30:15 has a word for you and me: In quietness and trust is your strength. Whew, I feel better after reading that. When stress comes and hope seems to fail, just be quiet. Don’t cry out in anguish. Trust God. That is true strength. Three verses later the prophet adds, “Blessed are all who wait for Him.” Today, be quiet, be strong, and be blessed.
