In February a woman who was once on the staff of the White House started a reality program on television. On her inaugural show she went after Vice President Mike Pence. She slammed Mr. Pence because he claimed that God “spoke” to him. The so-called “ladies” on the “View” repeated the story and claimed that Mr. Pence might be insane. They approved of Mr. Pence praying to God but they think he is crazy for claiming God speaks to him.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
How does God lead His people if He’s not permitted to speak to them? Those who will oppose the faithless voices and yield to the leading of the Lord will be dealt with as God’s own sons. Believer’s who want to be led of the Spirit will face much criticism from the religious and the heathen. Folks who are led of the Spirit cannot stop what they’re doing and explain everything they are given to do. If you think the devil is just going to step aside and let us have an uninterrupted relationship with Jesus, you need to read your Bible again.
Isaiah 55:12 You shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace.
The number one way God leads His people is with peace. Now peace is not the absence of problems, it is the presence of the Lord. Our personal relationship with Jesus is founded on having the peace of God and having peace with God. A relationship with Jesus comes to maturity when His peace begins to manifest. So, the key to having peace with Jesus is to make Him the Lord or the boss of your life. As long as you follow Him you will have a manifestation of His peace. If you begin to stray from His will, your peace with Him will begin to ebb.
Psalm 2:1 Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing?
The heathen have no peace and so they are in a constant state of turmoil. Their reality is all about the vain and useless things they wish were true. They fabricated their own brand of truth to give themselves a sense of peace, howbeit a false peace, but that’s all they have. They are wise and well educated, if they have no peace to lead them then no one has peace. It never seems to occur to them that they might be wrong and the deplorable Christians might have something they don’t. So, if we ask a believing believer if they hear God’s voice and they say yes, who’s the insane one? The one who believes God’s Word or the one who does not.
John 10:4 When Jesus sends out His sheep, He goes before them and His sheep follow Him because they know His voice.
Jesus said we would know His voice so we don’t have to guess or wonder. He will see to it that the willing heart hears exactly what He is saying. Jesus goes before us, He goes out front and then calls back instructions. We are sheep not cattle, if we were cows He would drive us. We are His children because we know His voice, too many folks don’t hear Him because to them He is a stranger.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.
YEAR OF THE LOCAL CHURCH
PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
