Ephesians 6:10 to the end of the chapter grabs our attention by going full throttle with directives for what Scripture calls "the evil day." Over and over, this passage 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 spirits 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 to get rid of President Donald J. Trump since 2016. 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 and 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 in integrity walks securely but he who perverts his way will be found out" (Prov. 10:9, BSB).
Watch this week's Week in Review by Larry Tomczak to be encouraged and inspired to "stand strong in the evil day."
