The hearts of the world went out to the families of 276 girls abducted in Nigeria by Islamic terrorists. The terrorists are against “western education” and have said they will sell the girls into slavery. Parents of the girls have been vocal in expressing their frustration over their government’s weak response in finding and rescuing their daughters. U.S. analysts say the terrorist group is stronger than the Nigerian government. The U.S., Britain, and France have all offered to help the Nigerian government rescue the girls. When you became a Christian, the moment when you turned from your sins and received the gift of forgiveness because of what Jesus did for you on the cross, you became God’s child. You are God’s child. And you have a strong, mighty Father who will never abandon you to a stronger terrorist. You have a Father who fights for you, protects you, who is ahead of you and behind you, and makes a path of righteousness for you to walk. On all sides, your Father God is shielding you from evil, even though we aren’t aware of it. There will never be a second when your Father God isn’t fighting for you.
