We have about 25 days until the most important election in history will go underway! As exciting as each debate has been and the amusement each candidate has provided where is our hope America?
As I dropped my eldest son off at school this morning, a few reminders were whispered into my spirit. One, no matter who is chosen as the leader of this country, there is still ONLY one King! King Jesus will reign regardless of Mr. Donald Trump’s or Mrs. Hillary Clinton’s title. The power that The Blood has can and will demand that demons obey when it comes to His people. Luke 10:17 says, The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”
Second, that same power has the power to transform the hearts of man. This American experience may very well transform what we think is impossible to be what God ordained years ago to be possible. Even if the very dreaded candidate wins this election, we should have no fear. For Jesus won and received all victory on the cross! These two are political representatives that create and amend laws. God created the universe, separated water from land, positioned the stars in the sky, made mere man from the dust of the earth, took one body part and made a woman, destroyed the earth once, and then restored it. Who truly has your vote?
Third, Christians can use this as an opportune time to walk the walk we always talk, FAITH. No matter the outcome, our faith should grow to new levels. Our faith should be past the minimum requirement of a mustard seed. We should have mountain moving faith, red sea parting faith, lion den faith, fiery furnace faith, cake making faith, oil never running out faith, go when He says go kind of faith, Lot’s faith, Noah’s faith, Daniel’s faith, Job’s faith, and faith that confuses the enemy.
Fourth, there are some things neither candidate can change or promise. They can promise to increase or decrease taxes; but they cannot limit or cap the number of miracles God is getting ready to show us. They can increase or decrease the national deficit; but they cannot block our blessings. They can change the healthcare reform, but they cannot heal us like the stripes of Jesus. They can build all kinds of walls, but once upon a time in Jericho God even made the walls come tumbling down. Ha, Ha! I’m going to shout myself.
God, is getting ready to open up a season were we have no choice but to trust him. Our faith is approaching a test like we’ve never seen before. Get ready to not only share in His sufferings; but get prepared to share in His Glory! Await Nov. 8th with a hopeful, victorious perspective. For hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. I expect God to still be on His Throne on election day!
Holy Spirit Speak!
