I am resolving today that every time I think about the election I will sing or listen to a praise song.
Many years ago my husband was dealing with some hurt in his life and I was trying to fix him as I prayed for him. God stopped me one Thursday morning and let me know that He was the Holy Spirit, not me. He told me either I could work on David or He could, but not both of us at the same time. I took my hands off and gave the problem to God and vowed to praise God each time I thought of it, letting God know I trusted Him. By Sunday the problem was solved. God had been waiting for me to hand it over to Him.
When we started this election season, God would not let us pray that President Trump would be reelected. Instead, He impressed upon us that this election was not about who would be president of the United States, but it was about greater things and about the Church of Jesus Christ.
He asked us to be praying that evil would be uncovered and that the evil one who was waging war against God’s purposes in the world would be defeated. That is what we have been praying. As we have prayed, God gave us the word I posted on Facebook recently…
“I am the victor. I know exactly what is happening. I see more clearly than You do. In fact, I’m directing the fight. In fact, I’ve already won it.
“Rest in Me. Trust Me. Know I am working all things for your good and My glory.
“I will be glorified. I will be victorious. I AM God.”
As we face this crucial time in our country, I can get rattled or I can rest in God and trust Him. I have to go there.
God says in Psalm 46:10 “Stop striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth.” I love the King James Version that says, “Be still and know that I am God.” Now is our chance to prove we believe Him.
God has everything perfectly under His control, so I intend to act like I believe it. I plan to sing like the singers did as they walked before Jehoshaphat’s army,
