Changed Lives Troubling Times

Fort Hood troops react to tragedy...again
Pray with us!
"I, even I, am He who comforts you..."  --Isaiah 51:12a

Questions abound...  opinions even more so.  How could this happen...again?  What causes one to act like this?  Social media is buzzing.  News articles and videos are being shared.  Leaders at all levels do their best to give comforting words.  Many are sad; many more angry.  Hearts are broken.  Families are shattered.  What gives?


By now, I'm certain that you've heard the news regarding the tragedy on Fort Hood. My family and I are safe (thank you all for your concern) and the troops that we so dearly love are doing well overall.  Yesterday afternoon my heart sank when I heard the news.  I re-lived memories from November 2009 (I was in Company Command then and my wife was stuck on post!) and was saddened that 'it was happening again.'  

Just two weeks ago, our regional leader sent a message to many Navigator Staff & laborers titled, "Why did God let it happen?"  In the message, he shared his thoughts about this question that everyone must deal with.  He briefly recounted the ancient trials of Job and, as I read through the message again this morning (praying & asking God "why" in my own heart) I was struck with two key points:

  1. God's ways are infinitely higher than man's.  "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the Lord.  "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.  For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts."  Isaiah 55:8-9, NLT.  This is not, by any means, a 'cop out.'  This is a simple acknowledgement for me to remember -- He is GOD; I am not!
  2. "When all is known, it will not be to God's dishonor, but to His honor."  Our regional leader encouraged us with this in reference to Job's faith.  Job *refused* to put himself in a place where he would judge God...through it all, he remembered his role.
I am convinced that God is at work in the hearts of our troops.  While I am as discouraged as the next person regarding yesterday's drama, I remain faithful in our Great God.  He will not disappoint.  Please pray for our ministry team as we seek to provide genuine answers to the questions in our military friends' hearts. Please pray for hundreds -- even thousands and tens of thousands! -- of opportunities to connect the Good News of Jesus to the lives of our military heroes.

Thank you for standing with us in the advance of the Gospel!

We're hoping to proceed with our regularly scheduled Bible study on post tonight.  I remember the first Navs meeting after the November 2009 massacre -- we prayed.  If we're able to meet tonight, we'll pray.  Will you pray with us?

"I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."  --Jesus Christ

When things like this happen people are always asking why? Of God.
You mention the Book of Job, which holds much of the answer.Job1:6-12 starts the ball rolling, SATAN wanted to break Job's integrity to Jehovah, Jehovah had confidence in Job, take your best shot, which he did and it failed, even though brutal as it was. Not to give up Satan wants another crack; Job2:1-6, a key is in vs. 4 ' a MAN will give everything', not just Job, so here Satan says that any of us who claim to follow God will curse God to his face if things go bad for him. Jehovah said, we'll see! Go for it.
From that day forward Jehovah has allowed Satan to try and prove his point, and Satan has been very successful!
Who rules the world? See 1John2:15-17, why, 1John 5:19, Satan has been allowed to rule down to our day. With what effect? 2Tim3:1-5.
Of course Adam & Eve play a part, they thought they could make wise decisions independent of God's direction, the result: Romans 5:12. Is this a permanent situation, no Romans 5:19, Matthew 20:28, Genesis 3:15. This experiment with man's rule over himself is soon to come to an end, because Jeremiah 10:23 states we do not have the capability to satisfactorily rule over ourselves. Jesus taught us to pray for the solution at Matthew 6:9,10, that will be fulfilled soon, Daniel 2:44, Rev 22:20.
