Will the Enemy Overplay His Hand?

Will the Church ever learn to rest? I didn’t say “relax and be complacent”. I said “rest”. You know, that Hebrews 4 “rest” that God encourages us to enter? That faith-filled, confident-in-Who-He-is, rest? God is not up in heaven wringing His hands over the political situation in Washington. What He has begun, He will complete. He started this process in order to cause upheaval in D.C. in order to clean things out and shift things we have prayed about for many years. This is what answered prayer looks like—not always pretty and orderly, but always victorious in the end! Look at the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The enemy thought he had destroyed God and His plan. Ha! Far from it! The enemy had overplayed his hand and God surprised him by using it to save humanity! God has done this over and over again throughout history. Do you not realize this is what He is doing again?

“You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good, in order to preserve the lives of many people who are alive today because of what happened.” (Genesis 50:20; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Resting can be active. It’s an attitude of the heart. Repent if you feel anxious or fearful over the things you see and hear about in Washington, D.C.

  2. Tell the Lord how much You love and trust Him. Ask Him to deepen your trust in Him.

  3. Pray for the Senate to know exactly what actions to take this week to ensure a conservative, constitutional Justice is confirmed to the Supreme Court.

  4. Ask God to help you see what He is doing to take advantage of every plan of the enemy to abort His plans. Watch God turn the tables over on the enemy and set things up for the future, ensuring a conservative Court for many decades to come.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I need to fully enter Your Rest! Forgive me my anxiousness and emotion that is rooted in fear. I admit I am not fully aware of Your Ways. Teach me, Lord. Let me tuck in close to You, where I can hear Your whisper and see from Your vantage point. Things are very chaotic over the confirmation process of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, but I think You have a plan and it is actually unfolding. What the enemy is using to make both political sides look unreasonable, I think You will use to begin the process of shifting the Supreme Court to the exact long-term position this nation needs! Praise You, Jesus! I agree with You and Your plan! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that what the enemy means for evil, God will turn for good, and He will save our nation and settle it into His plan for many years to come!
