Preparing Our Witness

by | Nov 16, 2020 | Prophetic | 1 comment

Whichever way the Presidential election goes, a day will soon come when a winner is finally declared. On that day, emotions will run even higher than they are now, no matter who wins. Today, the wise will begin to prepare how they will express their faith to the world as a follower of Christ, and to many within the Church, who might feel angry, disillusioned, or forsaken. 

While the result of an election does have societal consequences, in the end, Jesus will still reign as Lord of All, and His Kingdom will continue to advance until the end of time no matter what transpires in the affairs of any nation. The Lord has been this way before. We have not. He knows how to lead us forward if we allow Him to take our hand and show us the way.

We should not waste these days while the final votes are being tabulated. The daily adjustments we make during this time of preparation regarding our heart’s condition and our character’s content will help us overcome any undisciplined emotions and misconceptions we have picked up along the way.  

If we can allow God to do this work of internal preparation, the weeks and months that may be required to finalize the vote and declare our next President will not have been wasted. With each passing day, our peace will increase, our integrity will be established, and our witness will be made healthy and God-honoring.

    This is not the time to equivocate. This is the time to discern the leading of the Lord and take the battle to the giants who would destroy us and take our land from us. Concern for what those around us think of us is a consideration of virtue signaling. What Almighty God thinks and has planned is paramount. When Joshua and Caleb led the warriors into battle they were not singing “Que Sera, Que Sera”. Those of us who would posture as “neutral” are just rolling over to the desires of an implacable enemy who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. The victory is ours. Let us not give it up willy nilly because we want to be seen as thoughtful, balanced, and wise as we neglect to cross over the flooded, muddy Jordan to claim what is rightfully ours as proclaimed by our God.
