I invite you to join me each day as we pray for our nation until the election crisis has resolved. I’ll be reading the daily Give Him 15, making comments, and then we will pray together. You can join me here as we Appeal to Heaven for America.
Stay in the Fight
I was on the Victory Channel’s show Flashpoint! Thursday night. [You can watch the entire program here.]
Asked to comment on the media’s relentless onslaught of distorted and imbalance information, I replied that we must keep in mind this is a spiritual battle. Many who hate and attack the President now, had no problem with Donald Trump before he became President and began interrupting their agenda. What we are seeing is demonically-inspired hatred, driving an ongoing plan to turn America away from God and our roots. The reason Satan is so bent on doing this is because of the destiny hanging over this nation. We are a nation created to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. There has never been another nation created for this purpose.
The enemy hates this and has worked diligently for the last 50 years to turn us away from that destiny. When President Trump was elected and the momentum of this backsliding was stopped, anger rose within satan’s kingdom. He hates Trump’s resistance. As I have stated many times, my prayers regarding this election are ultimately not to support a man. They are in support of God and His purpose for America. It’s a spiritual war and we must stay focussed on that reality.
Another guest stated later in the program their belief that President Trump would remain in office the next 4 years. I was asked to comment on that, as well. I responded that I have had 40 to 50 dreams sent to me during the past few months by credible prophets, all of them instructing the church to pray and stand even when it looks impossible. In at least 8 to 10 of the dreams, it looked like we had lost. Yet, at the end of the dream, God demonstrated that the battle was not over. In one dream, He said twice, “I am not late!”
In another dream, Trump was in the White House, very distraught, sitting at his desk. He spoke to us, “All I ever wanted to do was to release freedom in America. All I wanted was for the people to hear the sound of freedom. The sound of freedom has been captured. I tried for 4 years to free this sound.” Then, he asked, weeping, “Have I failed?” I replied to him (in the dream), “No sir. You have not failed. It is not too late.” I don’t believe the battle is over. God warned us it would look like it’s over before it’s over.
I want to reiterate, however, that I would be warring with the same intensity without these dreams. They are helpful, but not my motivation, The cause of Christ is my motivation. The babies are my motivation, The first and most important covenant God established on earth--marriage between a man and a woman--is my motivation. God being honored in America motivates me. The controversy some want to generate over the accuracy of prophets regarding Trump mystifies me. Those who need a prophecy to fight for the above causes concern me. And though I still believe God is going to give us a miracle, I don’t need that either. Some things are simply worth fighting for - period.
Regarding the need for perseverance, even when it looks like it’s too late, let me share a situation in my own life. Thirty years ago, God assigned me to pray for a young girl in a coma. She was essentially in a vegetative state. A disease had attacked her brain and was destroying it. She was fed through a tube; had been this way for about 2 years. The Lord told me to go every week, pray an hour for her, and do this until He gave her a new brain. I did so, praying over her at least an hour every week (plus an hour drive), while seeing no results for a year. Numerous times I questioned the Lord as to whether he had truly led me to do this. Perhaps I had heard wrong. He assured me He did assign me to this, so I continued. At the end of a year, her sister contacted me to say if I wanted to see this girl alive one last time, I needed to do so right away. The doctors had told the family she was going to die. When I arrived, faith rose up within me and I decreed, “You will not die. You will live! You will have a new brain, and nothing can stop this!” Two days later, the Lord walked into her hospital room and completely healed her, giving her a new life. I do not know why God waited. He waited until it seemed to be too late, but He did.
I share this story for a couple of reasons. Obviously, I do so to emphasize that sometimes it isn’t over when it looks like it is. But I also share it to acknowledge that there were several times when I wanted to give up. Staring at a comatose, 20 year old young lady for 70 hours is anything but encouraging. I had to continually go back to the Lord, asking if I had indeed been assigned to this. He assured me that I had.
I have done so in this situation, as well. And I believe God has said to persevere, that He is going to work a miracle at the midnight hour. But as I said yesterday, if, God forbid, I’m wrong and we lose this battle, I will not regret having stood. Not for a moment. Warring for what’s right is always right. Always. Stay in this fight.
“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.’” (Exodus 14:13 NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask the Lord for grace to stand firm in faith regardless of what you are seeing and hearing in the natural.
Call for the Lord to come in a mighty show of strength and power.
Declare that the president will be saved by the One who put him in office.
Declare that freedom will be saved by the One who gave it.
Declare that this nation and its covenant and destiny will be saved by the One who established it.
Declare that every enemy of the Lord will be struck down.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we say now that You have not failed us. You have not failed President Trump and You have not failed our nation. You are moving us into a new place. We are in a defining moment - people are deciding whether they are going to stand, or whether they are going to accept defeat. Lord, we ask You for the ability to stand firm. By Your grace, we will stand for Your purposes. We will believe You despite what we see. We will not judge by what our eyes see or what our ears hear.
You are coming to the earth with a mighty wave of Your power. You are coming to deliver, coming to work miracles. We are going to see powerful things taking place. Deuteronomy 33 tells us there is no one like You, God. You come to help us. We can rest in You. You will drive out all of our enemies. You will utterly destroy them. You are going to bring our nation through this. You are going to be seen. You will be revealed as Savior. You will vindicate Your people. You will trample down every high and lofty thing that has risen up against You. Encourage President Trump. Bless our nation. Let us be saved by You, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
God is never late and His plans for America are not over!
