Evil unseen by our human eyes based on Daniel 10:11-13

Daniel 10:11 (TLB) And I heard his voice—“O Daniel, greatly beloved of God,” he said, “stand up and listen carefully to what I have to say to you, for God has sent me to you.” So I stood up, still trembling with fear. 12 Then he said, “Don’t be frightened, Daniel, for your request has been heard in heaven and was answered the very first day you began to fast before the Lord and pray for understanding; that very day I was sent here to meet you. 13 But for twenty-one days the mighty Evil Spirit[a] who overrules the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the top officers of the heavenly army, came to help me, so that I was able to break through these spirit rulers of Persia. 


These Scriptures confirm that the Lord honors our fasting and prayers, but do you live with awareness that there’s a spiritual battle waged in heaven by the devil and his evil-doers that impacts what happens on earth?  (Ephesians 6:12; Rev 12:7-9) God sent the angel Gabriel to Daniel, but he was blocked by spiritual evil to the point that God’s chief archangel, Michael, was dispatched to intervene.
Thankfully, the devil’s fallen angels are limited by God in what they can do (Job 1:12, 2:6). So while the evil spirit could block the angel who was sent to help Daniel, it could not prevent God’s plan from unfolding.
 We must be on guard at all times by putting on the full spiritual armor available from our Lord (Ephesians 6:13-18). Don’t be naïve in spiritual matters; God calls us to become mature Christians (Hebrews 5:12-14) who can wage battles effectively as evil continues to lurch in the world, our country, outside our doors and inside our homes.

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper

    and they will grow strong
    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Human life no longer matters

I'm deeply troubled and you should be, too. 

The sanctity of human life no longer matters. I'm outraged at the killing of yet another black man - two in one day - by police in this country. This is terrorism aimed at people of color. It is NOT acceptable - we are ALL created in God's image. 
Christians can't be quiet - no matter your color.
Philando Castille was shot and killed by police as he reached for his license while his girlfriend and child watched. The video making the rounds should make you cry - it could be your husband, son or brother!!

Stop and pray for his family and friends. Pray for Alton Sterling's family. Mr. Sterling was killed by police earlier in the day in Baton Rouge. 
This madness must stop. This is NOT okay. 
Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female.
