I believe every one of us have had occasions where we didn’t think God cared about our predicaments. When we find ourselves in these situations, we get all kinds of bizarre thoughts courtesy of the devil. Can the devil overwhelm us with more thoughts than God will offer us? The devil’s success depends on his ability to fill our minds with imaginations that are contrary to God’s will. After ten years of marriage, a wife asked her husband why he doesn’t tell her he loves her. The husband then says to her, I told you I loved you when I married you and I have never changed my mind. God is that way, He loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for us and He never changed His mind.
Mathew 28:20 ...and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
We will be presented a choice every day. Are we going to believe God or will we be moved by circumstances? We can only have one master. We will hate the one and love the other, or we will hold to the one and despise the other. This one thing I am sure of, God is with us every day whether you “feel” Him or not. I believe God has fully equipped us to stand up to anything the devil throws at us. I don’t always “feel” the presence of God but I always “feel” the power of His Word. The Word has assured me that God takes pleasure in watching us use His Word to defeat the devil over and over again.
Psalm 2:4 He that sits in the Heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in confusion.
We ought to take pleasure in demonstrating the devil’s defeat, it’s very humiliating for the devil when his former seed turns to him and thwarts his plans. We can do nothing apart from God, it’s the Father in us who does the works. We don’t need any signs to know that God is with us, but we know He is or else we could not defeat the devil.
2 Corinthians 12:9 And the Lord said to me: My grace is all you need, for My power is greatest when you are weak. I am most happy when I am weak, because God’s power will come and enable me.
The Apostle Paul was on assignment and the devil was doing everything he could to hinder him. Paul knew it was the devil sending men to harm him and he couldn’t take any more. He asked God to get the devil off his case but God gave him His grace and the devil could not get passed it. Everything the devil threw at Paul bounced off, he could not stop Paul because God was with him. I can only imagine how the devil must have felt, he threw his best hell at Paul and it never fazed him nor disturbed him. The devil’s failure was recorded in a book called the Bible and it has been read by more people than any other book.
Hebrews 13:5 I will never leave you, nor will I ever forsake (desert) you.
If God be for us, who can against us? Allow me to rephrase this passage of Scripture, if we believe God is for us, then who can successfully be against us? Where is God when I need Him? He is sitting on His throne of Grace waiting to confirm the Word, I believe with signs and wonders. My God loves me and He never changes His mind.
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.
