How is Your View?
“You know, 2017 was a very difficult time of uncertainty for so many of us. There were terrorist acts, riots, political unrest, and division. As we look on the world news, we have the threat of North Korea looming over the world. We had natural disasters here in the U.S., with fires and flooding across the nation. But, in the midst of it, I found myself starting to feel really good, and people looked at me like, ‘Are you crazy? Why are you feeling good right now?’ Because I’m seeing what God is bringing.” (Cindy Jacobs)1
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Are you feeling fearful over the challenges the nation is facing? Talk to the Lord about your fears. He cares. He already knows. He won’t reject you.
Worship over the nation for a while. See the heavens opening and the angels pouring in to work with our intercession.
Intercede for the political climate, the economy, US international relationships, healing of natural disasters, or some other big thing we are facing. Ask God to help Him to see things from His perspective. Feel your faith arise, as you pray.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I know I can be honest with You about the many things the U.S. is facing on many sides. I love chatting with You about these things, knowing You won’t reject my questions. I exalt You over this nation, wonderful One! Open my eyes to see the angels rushing in to help carry out Your will, as we intercede! Help me to see from Your perspective in the heavenly places. (Intercede for the political climate, the economy, US international relationships, healing of natural disasters, or some other big thing we are facing.) The growing faith in me, as I see that You are setting things in order, feels amazing!
I decree that God is up to something good in America!
