As we enter the final
hours before the election results are known, we are holding our collective
breath. We are like someone who was handed an envelope with an important notice
inside. As the envelope is placed in our hands and we begin to open it up, we draw
in our breath in anticipation of discovering the hidden message inside. Once
the message is read our inhaled breath will be released to empower the first
words that come from our mouth.
The words that ride
upon your exhaled breath the day after the election will inform your hearers where
your hope has been deposited. As
prophetic as many people have wanted to be in this pre-election season, it will
be what we say when the winner is finally announced that will reveal the real
prophetic content of our message.
Prepare for your
coming exhale by reminding yourself who you are and where you are currently
seated. You are seated with Jesus at the right hand of the Father in a place
not controlled by events that transpire on Earth. In that unchanging position
of authority all forms of human government and every dark spiritual force are positioned
under your feet. The outcome of an election cannot change that reality.
The choice in this
election, whether defined as good or bad based on your personal interpretation
of the results, should not be used to create the content of the first sounds
that come from your mouth once the results are known. You have been called to
speak from heaven to Earth releasing words of life and hope. Any other sound will
be a waste of your breath.
