Pray have prayed
Father, thank You for speaking to us. Make us sensitive to Your Holy Spirit,

IFA was deeply impressed by the responses of intercessors to 5 Dangerous Results of Giving Up. We wanted to share a few of them here with you.

Keely says:

Dear Dave and Intercessors,
On November 18, 2020 early in the morning on the West Coast the Lord gave me a vision and a word from Scripture after I asked Him to show me what was going on in this election.
Isaiah 9:2-4 “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light, a light has dawned on those living in the land of darkness. You have enlarged the nation and increased its joy. The people have rejoiced before You as they rejoice at harvest time and as they rejoice when dividing spoils. For You have shattered their oppressive yoke and the rod on their shoulders, the staff of their oppressor, just as you did on the day of Midian.”

I looked up the references to the day of Midian and they were Judges 7:19-23 and Judges 8:11-13.
Basically these verses talked all about the trumpets sounding, the jars breaking and the enemy fleeing. They also show a young man coming forward and giving the names of 77 officials, and 2 Kings being captured after the enemy panicked.

I felt in my spirit the jars were us, just common citizens broken before the Lord but our prayers are the trumpet sounds that confuse the enemy. I then saw in my mind’s eye humongous bins in the U.S. post offices across the country filled with ballots, being hidden and awaiting disposal. These ballots all said Trump on them.

My prayer is Lord, as broken common jars before you, let our cry to you be the trumpet sounds that route the enemy, confuse their plans, bring out the names of 77 officials and expose 2 leaders (Kings) who have evil intent for your people and your nation of America. . . Bring justice Oh Lord just as you did on the day of Midian, in Jesus name.

Nelly says:

I am one of your intercessors and I want to leave a word of encouragement for you. On November 21st, the Lord gave me an experience as I was coming in agreement with brother Dutch Sheets. He was leading one of his prayer meetings in one of the contested States— I don’t remember exactly which one because the moment he started to lead us, I was in the spirit. I was speaking in my prayer language which he encouraged us to do during the service. The Lord showed me in my spirit a massive rope made of 3 cords coming from the heavenly places down to the earth. It was hanging or suspended from the air. I saw in my vision that the day was grayish, gloomy, and foggy and as we continued to pray and intercede for the nation, the rope started to untangle and reverse, untangle and reverse all the way up until I could see no further into the heavenlies. The three cords rope became three singular cords.

The Holy Spirit reminded me of the Scripture that says that a cord rope is not easily broken hence why he was separating the cords as we prayed, making it three so it will be easier for his Ekklesia to break. This vision or spiritual experience was amazing and very encouraging to me. I have been sharing it with my prayer group on FB and with other believers and I wanted to share it here to encourage you to continue to pray because the Lord is on our side and He is listening to our prayers and He’s shifting and changing things— the victory is ours if we do not give up. If we do not grow weary and wait to see the salvation of the Lord!
Be blessed.

Ecclesiastes 4:9 – 12

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

N.B. A cord of three strands entwined together is not quickly broken.
A three stranded cord separated into three singular strands does not have the same strength.

i also want to add that around December 8th, in my morning prayertime, I mentioned to our Lord how discouraged I was regarding the lack of progress in anything being done regarding this voter fraud.. and time is getting short. I asked the Lord to please help me in my discouragement, and then blindly opened up the journal, “He & I” of recorded messages Jesus had given to Gabrielle Bossis in the 20th century. My eyes fell on the following: “Why do you doubt, you of little faith. Am I less great than yesterday? Could My love ever fail?…”

I encourage everyone to watch Donna Rigney’s video.. which totally confirms the article here on not giving up in prayer for our president.. She was told by our Lord that we all need to do our part and pray.. giving up will not gain us the victory in this. https://youtu.be/Cn-sVdnGANA

We cannot give up. The election is not over. Our Lord is on our side, but we have to be strong and not become weary and pray, pray, pray. Pray for protection for our president and his entire family as well as our vice president and his entire family. We pray for all those working with our president. May the Lord strengthen and guide our president. Holy Spirit fill him with wisdom.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame,and sat down at the right hand of God. Consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart….. Hebrews 12:2,3

I decided to watch the 10 commandments a couple of days ago with Charlton Heston. Now I have watched this film multiple times in my life from the time I was a young boy. But watching it this time hit me like never before.
I know – its a movie. But then Hollywood still had some respect and honor for the things of God. For the most part, they have now joined the other side – cursing, defaming, ridiculing the things of God. Suppression of biblical values is at an all time high and especially in Hollywood, where all the majority seems to care about is their god – money.
DeMille knew how to capture an audience. And he stuck to the word of God in this movie. But what hit me the most is how God used someone of “the world” like Moses. Someone who had been groomed in the most godless ways during those times in ancient Egypt. How God can take someone heart and turn it in whatever direction is necessary for God to accomplish his work.
Despite the faith wavering of the Hebrews during their time in the wilderness (and especially right after being released from bondage), God continued to use someone to help lead the nation back to where God wanted them to be – faithful, trusting in God and humbling them through his miracles. Maybe that’s why the movie hit me like it did. We seem to be facing impossible odds in our nation. We are looking at a media that no longer tells the truth, a major political party who could care less about America, values, religion and who are already celebrating their new Pharaoh as if he was already in office.
No matter how I “FEEL”, God wants me to trust in Him. He wants me to trust in his word. He wants me to decree & declare that truth and justice, from Him…will reign over criminal actions, fraud, deception and all other hell driven activity that is so prevalent in this years election.
The walls have been chipped away at & the foundations of hell are weakening – let us continue to pray for God to send miracles to all the walls to completely fall upon all this deception. Continue to send us leaders who stand firmly in who you are God and what you can do. Give us faith when our faith is weak. Teach us to lean on your word even when we are exhausted spiritually and mentally. You alone God are the great I AM & everything is possible for you. Moses saw that – he listened to you, heard your voice and relentlessly stood in front of a Pharaoh who had no respect or reverence for You. As your people, we humble ourselves before you, bringing You our requests and needs – knowing full well that often it may seem like you don’t hear us but You do. Bring our nation back to You Lord God. Humble with justice the Pharaohs of the land who flatly refuse to honor You. Because they have refused to honor you and refused to serve the people, allow the walls of illegitimate protection to fall upon them and let the crushing weight of their folly lead them to You Lord.
In Your name we pray – amen.

    Read the letters from the Archbishop to our President and to us, as a whole.

    Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop – Nov. 8, 2020
    https://www.vanthuanobservatory.org/eng/12822-2/

    … “the pandemic, which has been used as a tool of social engineering that is instrumental to the Great Reset, but it applies even more to the surreal American political situation, in which the evidence of a colossal electoral fraud is being censored by the media,”

    … “It is indicative that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Planned Parenthood are both expressing their satisfaction for the presumed electoral victory of the same person. This unanimity of consensus recalls the enthusiastic support of the Masonic Lodges on the occasion of the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, which was also not free from the shadow of fraud within the Conclave and was equally desired by the deep state, as we know clearly from the emails of John Podesta and the ties of Theodore McCarrick and his colleagues with the Democrats and with Biden himself. A very nice little group of cronies, no doubt about it.”

    LETTER to PRES. TRUMP:
    https://www.vanthuanobservatory.org/eng/archbishop-carlo-maria-vigano-open-letter-to-the-president-of-the-united-states-of-america-donald-j-trump/

    “And yet, in the midst of this bleak picture, this apparently unstoppable advance of the “Invisible Enemy,” an element of hope emerges. The adversary does not know how to love, and it does not understand that it is not enough to assure a universal income or to cancel mortgages in order to subjugate the masses and convince them to be branded like cattle.”

Neely,
Respectfully, I do not understand your post. In short you said you saw the three cords coming apart, unwinding, thereby losing their strength as when bound together. Why would you rejoice over this? Does not make sense to me as a believer?

Can you explain you conclusion?

Speaking of strategies and the enemy camp, The Lord is a God of JUSTICE, but he is also a God of MERCY! Since last week The Lord has led me to pray based on 2 Timothy 2:25 regarding all those in darkness.. Opponents must be gently instructed, IN THE HOPE THAT GOD WILL GRANT THEM REPENTANCE LEADING THEM TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH , 26 and that THEY WILL COME TO THEIR SENSES AND ESCAPE FROM THE TRAP OF THE DEVIL, who has TAKEN THEM CAPTIVE TO DO HIS WILL.

Let us pray for all those involved in this deep corruption -that AT LEAST 1 person would have a “Saul”-id conversion.  I pray that Jesus would reveal himself in a powerful way and that he/she/they would escape the trap of the devil and reveal the truth – exposing the darkness and proclaiming Jesus! ONLY GOD CAN DO THIS, and HE ALONE WOULD GET THE GLORY.  I know God can use other means such as the lawyers dedicated to fighting for truth and justice, however, there would still likely be great civil unrest by those in darkness, but maybe if the truth comes from those once in darkness, the division would be lessened – regardless, Jesus would be glorified! Also, our country is in need of more than freedom from corruption and a global agenda – we need a move of the Holy Spirit within The Body of Christ!

On Wednesday during my shift for the IFA Bible Read-A-Thon, where we read the word of God out loud over America, my hour happened to land in the book of Luke. I have read this book many times in my life but never really HEARD or took note of Jesus’ words in Luke 18:1. “Jesus told his disciples that they should ALWAYS PRAY AND NOT GIVE UP!” At the end of this parable about the persistent widow, The Lord said in verse 7, “AND WILL NOT GOD BRING ABOUT JUSTICE FOR HIS CHOSEN ONES, WHO CRY OUT TO HIM DAY AND NIGHT? WILL HE KEEP PUTTING THEM OFF?”

The battle for truth, JUSTICE, and freedom in our country isn’t over! Thursday, WE FINISHED OUR 7th ROUND OF READING THROUGH THE ENTIRE BIBLE and we know what happened after the Israelites marched around the wall of Jericho 7 times! The Lord has a track record of giving His people victory in battle over land. In the case of Jericho, he worked in unconventional and mysterious ways. How The Lord moves through prayer is also somewhat of a mystery and a Bible Read-A-Thon is a unique strategy. I know THE LORD IS USING THE PERSISTENT PRAYERS OF HIS PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD – INCLUDING HIS WORDS SPOKEN FORTH FROM PARTICIPANTS OF THE THE BIBLE READ-A-THON, to fight this war.

The Lord is beautiful and greatly to be praised! Over and over, He’s given us word after word and prayer strategy after prayer strategy to give us the faith and encouragement we need to carry Pres Trump and America all the way to victory AND to have victory and justice over our enemies – voter fraud, corruption, and the wicked behind it.

“It was the DUTY of the TRUMPETERS and singers to make themselves heard IN UNISON in praise and thanksgiving TO the Lord, and when the song was raised, with trumpets and cymbals and other musical instruments, in praise to the Lord,

“For He is good,
for His mercy endures forever,”

the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God,” (2 Chron 5:12-14).

The Lord gave me those verses a few weeks ago. For nothing can stand in His glory, including evil, when we, His trumpeters, worship Him in Spirit and truth. Which He also led me to share here in a post about it as well…

https://swordandspiritwriter.com/2020/11/19/prophetic-word-trumpeters-praise-the-lord-to-win-the-election-war-for-trump-and-america/

My heart is filled with gladness seeing His people unifying and employing all forms of spiritual warfare to win this spiritual war in our land and for the sake of the world. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! To the Lion of Judah who fights for us and through us!

We CANNOT give up! By faith we wait on expectation for His to carry put His promises. We may FEEL discouraged at times. But; we DO NOT GIVE UP. Does Abba Father give up on us? No. He does not. We are waiting “to see the salvation of the Lord.” His faithfulness is NEW every 🌅 morning! Thank You, Lord.

I come in agreement with Keely prayer and my cry to God is based on I Judges 8:14

Lord, I don’t know who the young man is that presently serves in the enemies camp, but I am praying first and foremost for his soul. You know whether he was destined from the foundations of creation to be one of yours. I don’t know, but today I pray and intercede on his behalf.
I make this petition before your court. May the anxiety caused by deceit and deception and fear of being exposed cause him to turn on those whom are the leaders of the enemy troops and provide the information to our Gideon in these times.
Though his turning on his enemy comrades may not be from repentance and meant only to save his own skin, the information is useful to the forces of good. Expose the 77 and all those who have betrayed the country for personal gain.
In Jesus name. I bow before You Lord God, You are the mighty One.

Dear Praying saints and intercessors, blood of JEsus covers everyone of us, and remember to wear the armor of God – 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 [b]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [c]the darkness of this age, 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—

“The light shines in the darkness but the darkness cannot overcome it”!!!
John 1:5

“Therefore, Judge nothing before the time, before the Lord comes,

*Who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness

and will disclose the purposes of the hearts. Then each one will receive his commendation from the Lord.
1Corinthians 4:5

God is not late! He is at work and is strategically planning. He will expose the dark things with His Light and the darkness will not overcome it!
Fight the good fight and KEEP the faith.

God is on the throne He rules and reigns from heaven above. He doesn’t need the Supreme Court, and He has just shown us He has higher plans. He used a little Shepard boy with a sling shot to kill a giant, He didn’t need an army, just a brave little boy.
Lord thank You for hearing our prayers. We will put on Your full armor and we will stand on the wall interceding for truth and righteousness to prevail . We will not give up, we will not grow weary, we look to You the author and finisher of our faith. We beliveLord help our unbelief. Strengthen us when we are weak, fill us with Your wisdom, show us what we should pray that we might pray Your heart. To &ou is all honor power and glory.

thank you!

I am expecting Him to route the enemies plans. I am expecting Him to bring to light to the darkness. I think expectation and hope are 2 different things. anyway…..THANK YOU! for your encouragement (s).

The story of Gideon has also inspired my prayers:
Gideon’s army
When the 300 Israelites blew their rams’ horns, the Lord caused the warriors in the camp to fight against each other with their swords. Those who were not killed fled to places as far away as Beth-shittah near Zererah and to the border of Abel-meholah near Tabbath.
Judges 7:22 NLT
**Father God you instructed Gideon to decrease the number of men in his army, so there would be no question that you were fighting with them. You caused the warriors in the opposing camp to fight against each other, and then they fled.
So God you know how many of us there are that are fighting the prayer battle, and You know each warrior on the ground involved in the battle for truth and justice in our election process.
Father God, be ahead of us and be glorified in this election battle so that all will know that you are God. Let our country and those observing see that you are joined with your sons and daughters, fighting the battle alongside us.

The Lord brought the old song Victory Song/Call To War by the Maranatha Singers. I went to Utube and listened to it here in California at 4:30 this morning. What a powerful song. It made me cry. God is so powerful. I was putting my trust in Amy Conney Barrett and she let us down. I realize she is just a human. God is the one in control of all of this chaos. He is the one who will see us to Victory. No person can do it. Listen to that song on utube. You will be inspired.

    Please don’t get down on Amy. We all respect her because she is honest and sticks to the constitution. The problem with this suit (as I understand it) is that it was brought by the wrong plaintiff. It would be like you suing someone because they hit your friend, not you. The court would reject the suit because you would have no “standing” since you are not the wronged party. The rejection does not speak to the validity of the wrong, but that the wrong person complained. If the SC had heard this suit, it would not prevail because Texas had no standing here. The complaints must come from directly wronged parties, such as the citizens of the actual states accused.
    I hope this helps. I respect Amy because she likely wants to hear a case like this, but wants to do it legally. She’s honest.
    Don’t worry! Keep praying and God will win this the right way with no questions remaining. 🙂

      That is not the case. Texas’s lawsuit DID have standing because it affected the outcome of the election. In other words all the states who followed the constitution and did things in the correct manner were harmed by the states who decided to make their own laws and bypass the legislature by having made changes to their election rules without permission from their state legislatures. The way in which TX and the states who joined in the lawsuit were harmed was that the outcome was determined by fraud and thus we have a president who is not worthy but was determined by a few people in their state who took it into their own hands to change election laws. There was indeed wrongdoing! The SCOTUS got it wrong this time. Alito and Thomas got it right. I believe the justices were intimidated or felt that they or their families might have been in danger if they stood up for the constitution. All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. That applies to our justices who were afraid to stand FOR THE CONSTITUTION, which is THE LAW OF THE LAND. Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett got it wrong this time. The other justices only serve their own purposes as liberals.

The corruption runs so deep. The shocking things we’ve seen are only the tip of the iceberg. I believe many important people are entrenched in the decades-long building of corruption- people we would be shocked to learn they participated in such horrid, evil things. These people have money and power (and powerful people behind them) to buy their way out of trouble- what got them into the corruption will keep them in it. Think of the mafia and how they dealt with breaks in loyalty.
I believe it is humanly impossible to come against this enemy and win. Our victory, the salvation of America, is dependent upon a supernatural act of God. He’s done it before, He’ll do it again and will do it in a way that no one can doubt IT WAS HIM and all Glory will be His.
Yesterday I heard an older song from Casting Crowns “Voice of Truth”. It reminded me to choose to listen and believe The Voice of Truth.
I hope it’s an encouragement to you today. I love you all. Thank you IFA.

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I’m in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand
But the waves are calling out my name
And they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. “Boy, you’ll never win!”
“You’ll never win!”
But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”
The voice of truth says, “This is for My glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth
Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand
But the giant’s calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again. “Boy you’ll never win!”
“You’ll never win!”
But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don’t seem so high
From on top of them lookin’ down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

My pastor, Mac Hammond, has always drummed into us “If you don’t give up, you win”. If I had a dollar for every time he has said that to us I could take my family to DisneyWorld for a WEEK! Why would I give up now??!! It looks so impossible and hopeless, IN THE NATURAL, which means Almighty God has something EXTRAORDINARY planned!! Pass the popcorn!

    Amen! That’s what I believe! The more the odds are stacked against His people, the more spectacular is His victory for us! Hallelujah! We want the world to know that GOD wins this fight! He has heard our prayers, and He delights to practice steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth! (Jeremiah 9:23-24). Hallelujah!!! Our King reigns!!!!

    When it’s something you can do then it’s not necessarily of God…if it’s utterly impossible (without Him) and He’s spoken a word to you then He’s in it….
    We should have all gone through enough trials and testings if we are engaged consistently with Him and have been with Him long enough to see this is just another impossible situation ( although global and testing our faith to the extremeextreme)..that we do what we always have to do…be tenascious…stay close to God… do not quit…outlast the devil and we will win win win !!!!✝️🙏

The Lord gave me the example pof David when he saught the Lord about the enemy entering his camp when he was gone and taking everything. The Lord told him, Pursue. I Will restore ALL THE ENEMY STOLE FROM YOU.” THE LORD REPEATED THIS THREE TIMES BEFORE I WAS COMPLETELY AWAKE AND OUT OF BED.
I take this instruction as my directive for today and I AM pursuing..

Just as America did not give up when Pearl Harbor was destroyed by a Japanese attack, neither can we give up even as it seems that all legal attempts of overturning this election are blown out of the water. We are fighting in the Spirit by prayer, but God who is the Lord of Hosts is taking this on and when he says once again: “Let there be light,” we will stand amazed at what He has done all by Himself!

oui ce texte le fait penser a Elie, qui priait a genoux et avec perseverance. Il demanda a son serviteur d’aller voir s’il voyait quelque chose ? Il a renvoye son serviteur et a la 7eme fois il voyait un petit nuage. Oui nous devons continuer a prier comme Elie et nous savons que Le Roi des Rois va intervenir, et que nous verrons aussi cette petite nuage de la pluie. Gloire a Dieu et perseverons comme Elie, lui qui était u grand prophete !

    This is a translation of the above response. It is a good post:

    yes this text makes him think of Elijah, who prayed on his knees and with perseverance. He asked his servant to go and see if he saw anything? He sent his servant back and at the 7th time he saw a small cloud. Yes we must continue to pray like Elijah and we know that the King of Kings will intervene, and that we will also see this little cloud of rain. Glory to God and perseverons like Elijah, who was u great prophet!

I have searched and not been able to find the prayer article a while back about the dream someone had about the raft that we were all on. We tied ourselves to the raft and lifted up praises to God as the water became more and more tumultuous. We lifted our praises all the more until the water became calm. It been a great encouragement to me and is a great reminder today to keep praying and stay encouraged.

The test of endurance is not giving up. We know the Holy Spirit is calling us to pray until the answer comes. Keep praying even in the times of not seeing the turn of the tide. In scripture, Suddenly the Holy Spirit came. . .

This all is terrifying and I have been praying for us not to give up. I am running out of strength and needed this boost. I have been asking God also why we are being pulled down into all the darkness. Here I ask for us to keep imploring for God to not just listen and hear but to intervene and act. Please. In Jesus name Amen.

I do not consider myself a prophet. God has never spoken to me, at least that I recognized. I haven’t seen visions nor have I dreamed dreams. There are those who participate in IFA that have made such claims. I accept them at their word that God have given them a glimpse of His future plans. Inauguration day will reveal whether the prophets heard correctly, whether the response of Christ’s church was adequate or whether some condition was not met that God expected of His people.

As I was exercising this afternoon, I saw “breaking news on CNN – Supreme Court rejects hearing the Texas case.” Texas was joined by 17 other states in a suit against the states where there is evidence of manipulation of the election results. My first thought was crap, obviously that the Supreme Court isn’t listening to God despite the appointment of two professing Christians. The options available to Donald Trump seem to be dwindling, perhaps they have been exhausted. From a purely human standpoint, it seems that Biden has captured the presidency.

But then the thought crossed my mind that how could God be glorified and get credit if the Trump team or the Texas team won the day in the Supreme Court. The ultimate Supreme Court is God’s Supreme Court. If the crisis can be solved by our abilities, then how does God demonstrate his power? God will NOT share his glory with anyone. Satan tried that and got into a lot of trouble.

I know the God can work miracles and if God desires, Trump will serve his expected second term. But, I don’t know if that is God’s plan. I have chosen to place my faith in God, that He’s got this. What exactly He has as his plan is a mystery to me. As God has not clued me in personally, I am relying on those intercessors who claim to have heard from God. It is not that I am trusting in those intercessiors. I am simply trusting that God spoke to them and I have am relying on God to fulfill His promises. I can’t control the outcome of the election nor can I control whether the democrats get caught with their hands in the cookie jar. But God can. I refuse to lose heart at this point. If Biden is inaugurated as President, it is because God so determined. We are on God’s clock.

    You have heard from God, and you say so:”thought crossed my mind that how could God be glorified and get credit if the Trump team or the Texas team won the day in the Supreme Court. The ultimate Supreme Court is God’s Supreme Court.”

    I believe that God is not done with TRUMP, Not done with our Nation nor is He done with us. We must have BLIND FAITH, forgive the people who are consumed with evil for that is our enemy, evil, not the people beguiled by it.

    What God is looking for is us. For us to acknowledge His way is the best, His timing is right and BELIEVING He will never give us anything we can not handle. Please be resolved to trust Him in everything and allow His plan to unfold as it should. We are His and our thankfulness shall fill our hearts and overflow to those around us.

    God always takes care of his own.

      I was thinking, God’s training program for the church.
      Hebrews 12:11-13
      All discipline for he moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. Therefore, strengthen the hands that are week and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather healed.” My prayer is as we continue to report to our Commander, the Holy Spirit will put the intercession of Jesus into words that we can pray, strengthen us in the Lord and in the power of His might, clothed in the full armor of God.

      Laurel, I agree, except for one phrase that needs amended- “…He will never give us anything we can not handle” is actually not sound, because as Steve pointed out, “God will not share His Glory with anyone”. God will never leave us in a position where we are so self-sufficient that we do not need to rely on Him- and you said as much when you pointed out that God wants us “to acknowledge His way is the best…”
      I recently saw a teaching on this from Tony Evans (who, btw, also did a wonderful series on “Kingdom Voting”) which I copy here [all EMPHASIS MINE]:
      “Our God Is a Deliverer:
      There is a myth in Christianity that I often hear people say—maybe you have even said it yourself—and that is, “God will not put more on me than I can bear.” Some people even think it’s in the Bible. But let me debunk that myth right now with a look at the life of Paul. “For we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our affliction… that we were burdened EXCESSIVELY, BEYOND OUR STRENGTH, so that we despaired even of life” (2 Corinthians 1:8).
      If you share similar feelings today, you are in good company! Paul was a man who served God, knew God, and pursued His calling at all costs. That right there should demonstrate to us that a life of service to our King doesn’t guarantee a life without difficulties, sorrow or sacrifice. In fact, the opposite is typically true.
      God allows crisis situations in our lives because IN THEM, WE DISCOVER HIM IN A WAY WE HAVE NEVER KNOWN BEFORE. When He wants to move you to a new level of intimacy with Him, He will typically use a crisis. TRUST HIM, even when things DON’T seem to MAKE SENSE, knowing that HIS PRESENCE IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO TURN EVERYTHING AROUND —SUDDENLY! And when He does, your faith will grow, and God will get greater glory, and the knowledge of Him will spread.
      For His kingdom, Tony Evans”

        God won’t give us anything that we cannot bear WITHOUT His grace. If we try to bear it on our own, then forget it.. we lose. Only through total dependence upon His strength through the Holy Spirit can we truly bear anything.

          Yes Lisa, most Christians understand we are only here because of His grace, everything we do is through His grace, nothing is accomplished by our own making, only through the Holy Spirit are we able. His guidance and protection is always with us, to help us through anything. Thank you.

    I agree with almost everything you say. I too wasn’t happy to hear the scotus news but also wasn’t comfortable with scotus saving the day. I will add though that if Biden is inaugurated that does not mean it was God’s will after all. Our prayers are important and there are heavenly court issues. Jesus led us to pray that God’s will would be done on earth as it is in heaven. It is not automatic. We need discernment and perseverance. But wow, how marvelous to see the praying church rise up at this time. There is more unity than ever. And an understanding of our God given authority to pray,to speak, to declare his will be done in the earth! Praise God!
