Your people are rising up, praying, voting, letting their voices be heard. But Lord, there are so many more that are scared to be heard because they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. Lord, I believe it hurts our nation when we don't stick with the Truth. Progressivism destroys; it is not progress. It divides this nation that for 25 years was healing. Healing from the laws that were suppose to heal us and not be so divisive but Lord, you know no color. No skin color. You have had your hand on America since the beginning, even when the Jamestown people did stupid things and starved because they did not think ahead. Lord, please restore us into the people you wanted here. Hate is of the devil and he has had his hand at play for way too long.
Lord I know this too, is a spiritual battle. It is in the heavenlies, the principalities, and powers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places, this is a war against good and evil, not against flesh and blood, but also against the division in the churches. Churches can not unite because of the sin that has happened from within, though you forgive sin, they must humble themselves before you. Lord,
Paul tells us in the Word of God it's like this. In The Whole Armor of God. Lord, we just want our Country back, not back to times when rights were taken away, but for our country to be debt free, accepting of each other and their opinions, and for your grace to be restored. Lord as the reader reads this, my hope is they will open their eyes and heart to see your love and grace. That their judgment is not on you but in the world as we live and see it. Amen.
Ephesians 6:1010 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
And then he tells us in 2 Corinthians 10 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Spiritual War
Reality of Paul’s Authority7 Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ’s, let him again consider this in himself, that just as he is Christ’s, even so we are Christ’s.[a] 8 For even if I should boast somewhat more about our authority, which the Lord gave us[b] for edification and not for your destruction, I shall not be ashamed— 9 lest I seem to terrify you by letters. 10 “For his letters,” they say, “are weighty and powerful, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.” 11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when we are absent, such we will also be in deed when we are present.
Limits of Paul’s Authority12 For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. 13 We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us—a sphere which especially includes you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting of things beyond measure, that is, in other men’s labors, but having hope, that as your faith is increased, we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere, 16 to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s sphere of accomplishment.
17 But “he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”[c] 18 For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.
So, why am I posting this, well, because we are at a crossroads of good and evil once again. Whatever your stance in politics, liberal, dem, rep., green, no party, don't care, we have a choice to say what we need, want, or desire. Let your vote be counted, let your voice be heard. Not just for President but for your state, local and county reps.
