Imagine Esther made aware of Haman's plot to exterminate the Jews simply shrugging her shoulders and saying, "Oh well, God is sovereign; He's in control."
Ephesians 6:10, to the end, grabs our attention, going full throttle with directives for what is called "the evil day" (have a hankering it's describing today?). Over and over and over, it calls us to "stand" and "pray." Other action verbs call us to be intentional in resisting the unseen spiritual forces at work to bring destruction.
In this turbulent time where we're witnessing horrific polling, election and voting scandals, we need discernment to understand how God is uncovering corruption and calling us to perseverance, not passivity. The next 30 to 60 days require us to be strong with steel in our spirit and not be spineless as we make our way to the Supreme Court.
"If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small" (Prov. 24:10).
Call for Endurance
Leftist-leaning politicians, pundits and popular celebrities have been determined since 2016 to get rid of President Donald J. Trump. He's endured so much: illegitimate election, Russian collusion, Stormy Daniels, tax evasion, Ukrainian "quid pro quo," impeachment, a weekly avalanche of accusations and allegations, none of which have worked. So now we face what the president predicted months ago with mail in ballots and election shenanigans.
We must retain our composure, avoid hysteria, misinformation and conspiracy theories. Apparent fraudulent activity demands evidence and that is why the brilliant Christian attorney, Jay Sekulow, and his legal team need our prayers and fasting to reveal corruption and reverse any illegitimate coup.
The time for endurance is now. We ask the one interceding for us at the right hand of God to uphold His declaration, "For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore, what you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light. And what you have whispered in the ear in private rooms will be proclaimed on the house tops" (Luke 12:2-3).
"He who walks uprightly walks surely, but he who perverts his ways will be known" (Prov. 10:9).
Ever See the Film Vendetta?
On Nov. 5 for over 400 years, the British commemorated Guy Fawkes Day. I went there to join in the evening festivities and enjoyed a movie, Vendetta, telling the tale. "Brits" recall how Guy and his band of conspirators hid 30 kegs of gunpowder beneath Parliament with the intention of ending King James' reign and his political support.
England back then had lots of praying people and history records how someone caught the culprit lurking in the shadows and an anonymous letter surfaced that foiled the plot. The evil perpetrators were executed and many believe divine intervention played a part.
