Every one of us have had times when we really needed God immediately. We will say or think, where is God? Is He busy with someone else? Is He hiding from me? We all know where He is, He is sitting on His throne of grace watching every thing about our lives.
Psalm 121:4 He will never slumber nor sleep; He is the guardian of His people.
The minute God hears our prayers or our cries He is ready to respond in His time. Think about this: if God responded immediately every time we called on Him, then He would be our servant! But we are His servants, so He deals with us and our problems in a manner He chooses. God is faithful and reliable, He always responds according to His Word. Remember that when the Apostle Paul was tormented by the messenger of satan he besought the Lord three times to get him off his back. What did the Lord say to him? He said “My grace is all you need.” God had a purpose for Paul to endure his hardship, so He gave him a supernatural empowerment to endure every fiery dart of the evil one. God’s grace was so affective in Paul’s life that he began to take pleasure in the persecution and stress from the devil.
John 16:33 In the world you will have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
No matter what the devil throws at us, Jesus has already defeated it, but he never gives up trying to make our lives unblessed. The devil is defeated well before he initiates his plans for our lives, our hope is in the Lord even before He shows up. We are a people in search of our victory, we are not to “try” anything we are to just do it. Let me share a little secret, the devil is more afraid of us than we are of him. Why do Christians walk around with a defeated attitude? Because they don’t know any better! Religion has offered Christians a devil that is equal to God in power! The Bible tells us that Jesus stripped the devil of all the power he took from Adam, Jesus disarmed him for all eternity.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your care over on to the Lord; for He cares for you.
What happens when a believer takes on the burden of caring for himself? God sits back and lets us do what we want to do, He will not come down and wrestle your worries away from you. If you call for God to help you but continue to deal with your problem you are double minded. God will not intervene unless He is given all authority, He does not need our help. Who do you think can handle our problems the best, us or God? One of the major reasons we doubt God’s divine intervention is because He handles things differently than how we think He ought to.
Hebrews 13:5 I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
I dare say, God is far more committed to us than we are to Him. He is far more reliable than we are.
God is hiding in plain sight.
Don’t ever let the devil lead you to believe that God is ignoring you, remember the devil is a liar. God never hides from us and we have no place to hide from Him.
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.

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.
