Unity in Crisis

We don’t want big crises to have to force us into unity. We want the excitement God is creating to cause us to gather. We’re in a very narrow transition time. It seems to be getting more narrow each day, but we can’t stop and ponder it. Our political system needs to be confronted and it is being confronted! We need to keep moving and we need to move forward in unity. (Chuck Pierce)1

“Brothers and sisters, I encourage all of you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to agree with each other and not to split into opposing groups. I want you to be united in your understanding and opinions.” (1 Corinthians 1:10; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Let’s repent to the Lord for jumping to conclusions about what is happening politically. Maybe He is shaking things up to cause us to be unified.

  2. Ask the Lord to expose any prejudices, haughtiness or judgmentalism you have in your heart toward other Believers. Repent.

  3. Putting the above two points together, receive a revelation that this is why the Church has not advanced the Kingdom further—we can’t seem to get on the same page. Church, we have to! Ask the Lord for grace to get into unity somehow, some way. Now!

  4. Rejoice that we are living in exciting days and we will see God direct us in miraculous ways!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive us for assuming that things in our nation are out of control, as if You are blind or uncaring. Thank you for shaking things up and encouraging us to press into seeking you and working together. Show us where there are things in our hearts and our minds that keep us from expanding Your Kingdom as one. The enemy is taking advantage of our separateness, but we don’t have time for that. Grace, Lord! Make us one! Our political system is being confronted and change is coming! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s grace and our determination to be unified will make the Church one so that the nation’s political system can be corrected!
