We are living in a time of misunderstandings. This is nothing different than what has happened throughout history, and because of the anxiety it caused, it has often led to war. There are so many conspiracy theories going on right now, that my head is spinning!
I’m reading Joshua, and the land has all been conquered and divided up among the tribes. Joshua has released the tribes of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, to go back to their land across the Jordan. They were so excited to go home that they built a replica of the altar. The other tribes came together to make war because it looks to them as a breach of faith against the Lord, and they didn’t want to suffer through all the plagues from the sins of others, like before. Once they cleared up the misunderstanding, all was well and no blood was shed.
The world is in crisis right now, it is best if we don’t fall for all the conspiracy theories, and stay in prayer, honor God, and fill our days with praise to him. The verse I’ve included is so beautiful, it says, “cling to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Nothing could be more important right now, than to “cling” to God, and trust that he has everything under control, and not allow our heads to go down the treacherous path of conspiracy! God will thresh out the lies, and shine a bright light on the enemy of the people, trust him.
Only be very careful to observe the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments and to cling to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Joshua 22:5
