Discouraged about the events of January 6, 2021? My faith is not in man or any process currently taking place (or not). My faith is in God alone. If it was in anything else, I would have left this fight a long time ago.
What is faith? It is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). I intend to stay engaged in prayer, asking God for His presence to come and sit heavily on all members of Congress even today, convicting men of sin (John 16:8) and rising up within Pence to take hold of any Esther moment not yet squandered. And I continue to pray hope and encouragement over our President. Who is with me?
Think about this: Jesus, knowing Lazarus was sick, still tarried long enough for him to not only die but to be dead 4 days before coming to them. And yet they all got a miracle both in a time and way they did not expect when He rose Lazarus from the dead.
For all who believe Pence gave away the only Esther moment, let me remind you of that WHOLE verse:
“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14 NASB1995
It’s time for your faith to arise, people! Now is not the time to fear man, now is the time to fear GOD. Big God, little devil! We were all put here for such a time as this! We are all Esther!
Lack faith? God is qualifying us, we are not qualifying Him. Ask Him to increase your faith. This spiritual battle has only just begun.
These are scriptures I am focused on currently:
“But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.””
Ephesians 5:13-14 NASB
“I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself, who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers.” (Isaiah 44:24-26 NIV)
