“FEAR GOD AND YOU WILL FEAR NOTHING ELSE,” GOV. DESANTIS SPEECH INSPIRES MANY

Lord, we thank you for leadership that loves you! We pray that more U.S. leaders would encounter your radical love and know the power of who you are. We pray that you cover DeSantis and protect him from any schemes of the enemy.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis encouraged conservatives to “have a backbone” in a speech to Alliance Defending Freedom on Thursday and explained that his efforts to keep Florida as open as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic were part of a desire to choose “freedom over Fauci-ism,” in the face of leftist criticism.

In his speech, DeSantis demanded that conservatives weather hostility from the culture and the media: “that’s what the battlefield looks like.”

“The media will almost assuredly try to smear you, Big Tech may censor you, and big business may even try to boycott you, boycott your state, boycott your jurisdiction, but that’s what you have to be willing to put up with.”

“[A]cademia, corporate media, big tech, big business – all of them adopt in various degrees a leftist, woke perspective in terms of what they want to see,” DeSantis told the crowd. “Most of them are entirely hostile to any type of conservative values or traditional principles. That’s just for sure. So, you know that going in.”

“That’s what the battlefield looks like and if you stand up for the truth, you’re going to face the wrath of these institutions in many respects,” he added. “The media will almost assuredly try to smear you, Big Tech may censor you, and big business may even try to boycott you, boycott your state, boycott your jurisdiction, but that’s what you have to be willing to put up with.”

Conservatives, he added, have to “have the backbone and the wherewithal to be willing to stand for those right things when the going gets tough when the lights get hot when people are throwing stuff at you and are trying to smear you. That is really where I think the rubber meets the road.”

He used his battle to keep Florida free, even as other states were locking down during the COVID-19 pandemic — a decision that kept Florida’s economy humming, even as other states struggled — as an example of standing up to leftist theories masquerading as conventional wisdom. . . .

“You take an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and you need to be willing to do that without fear or favor and you need to be resolute, and you need to get the job done. Refusing to rule correctly or even to rule at all for fear of any type of extraneous consequences is cowardice, and we can’t have cowardly people in these positions at this moment in our history,” he added.

DeSantis faced sharp criticism from triggered leftists on Wednesday, after releasing a line of campaign merchandise emblazoned with the slogan, “Don’t Fauci My Florida.” But DeSantis positions his approach to the COVID-19 pandemic in direct conflict with White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci’s approach.

“When people [ask] what did you do in Florida?” DeSantis said. “I answer very shortly and clearly: Florida chose freedom over Fauci-ism. I wasn’t about to let the state get Fauci’d,” he added.

  1. I most certainly agree the reverential fear of God is where any Christian should remain. There is peace, contentment, and protection there. I don’t want to be anywhere else. It’s good to know that Ron DeSantis knows where he should be.

  2. Thanking God for Florida’s Governor! It’s disappointing that most governors are not following the same path! “Our on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” Eph. 6:11. “But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.” 1 Peter 5:9. “BE STEADFAST, IMMOVABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD.” 1 COR. 15:58. “Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” 1 For. 16:13. “Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.” Phil. 4:1. Praise God, He gives us instruction to live in this hostile world as exiles!!!!

  3. I will pray that this plandemic will awaken the Holy Spirit in all people to take action against religious suppression and government overreach. History shows us the evil in some mens ( woman’s ) hearts/ souls when given the privilege to rule, lead. May they be called out and repent. my governor has Godly wisdom also and is resisting the false suppression of freedom.

    7
  4. Amen, Gov. Desantis! I am a Floridian and so proud to have him as my Gov. I, like many, keep him in prayer as he leads us in this beautiful state. Let us keep on in prayer and in action in love as these are very, very difficult and troubling times. May the Holy Spirit unite believers, grant us wisdom, discernment, comfort, hope and encouragement as we press on. May the great restrainer work to expose and bring the change that will glorify our God. Let us keep on in our prayers for the greatest country that ever existed! God placed each of us here and now for an important purpose. Let us all fulfill and not squander. Freedom comes at great cost. Thank God for the wonderful patriots who began this country to our wonderful boys who fought a hellish time in WWII. Lord, help each of us in our prayers and petitions. Speak to our heart’s and help us to be faithful. Prayer makes all the difference. I am hopeful Gov. Ron will consider a Presidential bid and I pray God may raise up a godly person at the proper time to continue on as governor to protect this state, I love and am so proud to live in. God bless each of you important intercessors. The Lord is with His people!!

  5. Governor DeSantis is a rockstar patriot. I pray for him and his family daily. Let’s hope he inspires other right thinking, values minded people to step up and take back our Republic!!

  6. I truly appreciate Ron DeSantis since he was a U.S. Congressman & now Florida Governor. It would be awesome if he were the Vice-President when our legitimate President Trump returns to the White House. Mike Pence has hidden issues that have always troubled me though I couldn’t put my finger on them. The Governor is fighting for his constituents like few Republican leaders, meaning at a consistent level of Constitutional commitment. He’s right about Fearing GOD, but frankly few comprehend what is meant by ‘The Fear of the LORD’. My 3-Part comprehensive study of this important subject is linked below.

    ABBA Father, we recognize Your Love for our nation and her people. You have blessed America beyond measure for the past over 500 years, though You still hold us accountable for our sins which have been many. The true church is rising by Your Grace and compelling motivation, and we humbly thank You for not judging as we deserve. May the Holy Fear of The LORD return in critical mass to ALL professing believers, and through us to the rest of mankind. May Your Holy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven… from this day to Your Son’s return… in Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

  7. 🤔 hmmm? Please see the latest article below….
    I wonder if the person giving him hospital stats are telling him the truth. Just when I thought he would be a good candidate for president in 2024. This comment is messing with my trust issues. 🤪
    A good timely reminder for me… the only one I can trust is Jesus. I need to keep my eyes on Him and walk in my purpose. Jesus came for salvations not to save a nation. 🙌🏼🕊✝️❣️

  8. I thank God for Ron DeSantis….
    May God guard him, continue to temper and balance him and may he have a consistent and faithful prayer team to cover his family and him.
    May he be strong in the Word and in prayer as David was for he is a warrior too. May he not yield to temptation and be delivered from evil.
    Be a shield about him and a wall of fire Lord. Let his eyes be on the faithful of the land. May he walk fully in Psalm 101 and Psalm 15.
    May he continue to build up the gap in Florida and be faithful to all your for ordained purposes for his life. Thank you for his strong voice and the trumpet sound that you are using his voice for.
    Amen

  9. Yes, yes, yes! God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love and of a sound mind! Keep up the great work Gov. DeSantis. You are NOT alone. Prayers prayed for your regularly as you take the strong stand for righteousness in the state of Florida. May the LORD enlarge your territory. Be strong in the LORD and in the power of HIS might! Florida is blessed to have you as their governor!

    75
  10. Amen to Gov DeSantis! Godly leaders and Christians everywhere must be willing to stand up and be empowered against the enemies trying to take down America from within! What would Jesus do?! Stand up and speak truth in Jesus Name! ✝️🙏🇺🇸

    76
  11. Dear Lord, I thank You for leadership that loves You. I pray that more U.S. leaders would come to know You and Your great and mighty love. I also pray that You would cover and protect Mr. DeSantis from any schemes and attacks from the enemy. In Jesus precious name, amen.

    82
  12. The Lord reminded me of Deric Prince’s comments 9n the war in 5he desert during WW II. 5he Allies has built a water line and were testing it. The enemy, desperate for water broached the line and died. Testing, not complete, was done with salt water.
    Finally, there were times in history that entire armies were decimated by dysentery.
    Never, Never,Never underestimate the Power of the Living God…

  13. Love Governor DeSantis. We live close to the Florida border and I tell my husband all the time, we should have moved over a few miles into Florida! Praying he continues to speak for truth and for The Fear of the Lord. Protect him Lord. Continue to give him courage and strength and wisdom and revelation.

    63
  14. Thank you Governor DeSantis for speaking boldly in truth and protecting we Floridians. I totally agree with your stance and know that I will be praying for you and your family. GOD be with you always!!!

    65
  15. Thank you Lord for leaders that stand for truth and justice. I pray for encouragement for all righteous leaders to stand on Your truth. 🙌Praising You Lord for all YOU have done, all YOU are doing, all YOU are about to do. Believing in Your WORD, in the name of JESUS!🙏AMEN!

    64
  16. I praise God for Governor DeSantis he is on the front as is others but we the people need to be standing with them. He words spur you into action! Oh Lord help us as we stand firm and truth must prevail, weather the hostility and be resolute to get the job done. Lord may those that perpetrated lies on the American people be exposed and severely dealt with.

    64
  17. Amen! Amen! Amen! Finally a true leader that is leading people into how GOD would have them to act! GOD would not have us ignorant of satan’s devices and satan’s bullying tactics. GOD needs warriors not weaklings in his army. Warriors speak those things that be not and ignore the negative speech and lies of the current administration, media, and big tech; and Warriors utterly refuse to obey their unrighteous decrees! Weaklings repeat everything the current administration says, believe all of the current administration’s lies and threats and are afraid to stand for GOD in the midst of adversity. I choose to be a warrior! GOD never said it would be easy, but HE promised to be with us always and to fight for us always in JESUS Name! Choose LIFE and LIBERTY! FATHER GOD please awaken the Mighty Men and Women and give us YOUR STRENGTH to fight AND WIN this battle! Wake up pastors and preachers and conservatives and patriots and give them YOUR BACKBONE to stand strong against the enemies of salvation and our country in JESUS MIGHTY Name! FATHER GOD please protect and keep safe Governor DeSantis and all other governors who are standing strong against the enemies of America in JESUS Name! Amen!

    72
  18. I absolutely agree with Governor DeSantis and wholly support him and the words he says! Florida is a happy and bustling state because of the policies this Governor has put in place. I pray for protection of those policies. Lord, I pray for protection for him and his family at all times. And for continued wisdom and guidance from you Lord!
    Please raise up many more godly state governors and legislators.
    Thank you!

    87
  19. Praise God. Keep him strong in his faith ! Please put a hedge of protection around him and his family. I especially like that he is calling Fauci out for what he is. I thank You for his spirit of boldness and conviction. Keep him strong in the faith, and continue to use him as a spokesman for conservatism, and Christianity.

    82
  20. Isn’t it amazing how words of “truth” are so uplifting and encouraging!!? They call us out of a stupor and into ACTION!!
    Hooray for Gov. DeSantis!!
    May each of us seek God on our individual part in speaking out the TRUTH of God …and May we remember perfect love casts out fear. There will be persecution!
    Jesus was so VERY bold in speaking out truth. It amazes me he was not killed before he was!! Let us reread with new eyes His words to mankind in the gospels and especially John.
    His words were absolutely revolutionary!! We are told that in The hour we need the right words, the Holy Spirit will give these words to us. Luke 12:12 His word is the logos that becomes the Rehma word that pierces bone and marrow, soul and spirit!! These are the words our nation needs to hear! (Hebrews 4:12..”For the word that God speaks is ALIVE and FULL of POWER , making it operative , energizing and effective; it is sharper than than anything two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow of the deepest parts of our nature, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.” Amplified
    This is the word of truth the church simply must speak in this day!! No time to waste.

    73
  21. Lord,

    Thank You for leaders who fear You and who love You. Please turn hearts to Yourself. Open eyes and ears that many more will rise up. As citizen of heaven, give us wisdom and courage to do our part. Your will be done! In Jesus Name!

    67
  22. Absolutely! We need every Mayor and Govereignor to have the principles and backbone of Governor DeSantis and Governor Noom in South Dakota. I pray for all the evil, ineffective and self-serving leaders to be out of offices of leadership and only God fearing, principled people be allowed in.

    66
  23. Salvation. When I was thinking about this I searched “the number of steps involved in salvation.” There are many opinions about this number. Paul’s Philippian jailer asked him, “what must I do to be saved?” Paul’s reply, “believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.” But we also read what Jesus told his disciples, “no one can come to Me unless the Father has enabled them.”

    I have read the Bible for years in many translations, almost daily…IT is still a “mystery deep and rich in the wisdom and knowledge of God”… Father, to YOU alone is “Praise and Glory, Wisdom and Thanks, Honor and Power and Strength.” To YOU alone I pray for salvation to come to all those who are opposing You. To YOU alone I pray for a feast of faith as YOU prepare a table before our enemies and anoint our heads from Your overflowing cup. I pray the table is bigger than we can imagine as you usher in salvation. I ask this in the Name of The Messiah, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

    steps in salvation ; Acts 16:30-31; John 6:65; Romans 11:33-36; Revelation 7:12; Psalm 23

    51
  24. I 100% agree with Governor DeSantis and pray that more elected officials will continue to stand up against the liberal/left wings trying to take over and destroy our constitution that our founding fathers so bravely came to America to fight for and defend for ALL people!
    I pray our great state of Texas will take this strong and bold stance! Show me Lord Jesus how to do my part and not rely on elected officials alone. Fully relying on God to lead, guide, defend and protect our nation and His people!!

    72
  25. I agree with Governor DeSantis. I have favor and am covered in the Blood. Rand Paul has asked the DoJ to criminally investigate Fauci for lying to Congress about funding Gain of Function research at Wuhan Lab!

    66
  26. I agree! The road for freedom is not the easy path and few decide to walk there, however, everything of value costs something.

    Praying for you Governor DeSantis, your family and staff to stay the course and we are with you!

    82
  27. I applaud Governor DeSantis for standing up for what he believes & for his state. Father I pray for all governmental leaders in every state, that they will seek truth & refuse every lie. Give them spiritual discernment & wisdom in every decision they make for themselves & those you have placed under their leadership. Let your kingdom come. Let your will be done in each of their lives here, on earth as it is in heaven in Jesus Name Amen. Protect & defend each of these leaders as they stand for righteousness, justice & truth. Favor your righteous cause & show yourself strong on the behalf of your children in this nation in Jesus Name Amen.
