“And I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be My people.”
How many times in life are we told to “hang on”? I mean literally!?! We need to hang on when on a ride at an amusement park; when riding a horse; when caught in a storm; or when riding on the back of a golf cart. What may happen if you do not? If you allow yourself to swing and sway? I know you know—you will certainly fall off!
The same is true for our spiritual lives as for our physical ones. Our God is faithful. He will keep all of His promises He has made to those that believe. No matter how hard the Enemy works to disgrace Him and those who are faithful to Him, it isn’t going to happen! He has said since the beginning of time “I will.” There is no greater truth in all creation than God’s Word.
It is evident that the spiritual war is cranking up. The lies have seeped into the government of the United States and other nations. But, if those whom the people have elected to represent them, think that they can erase the Spirit of God by removing His name from all their oaths and speech, they have another think coming. In the end “I will” will be victorious! And those who have advocated for the removal of His name, have just signed their own death warrant!
We need to “hang on!” The “we” being those of us who have signed on to become a member of God’s army. Even as I write this, I know that my declaration will put me under attack. But, remember you are not under attack–the attack is under you! O also know that if we are one among the people of God nothing can separate us from the love of God. “Not hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword…will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8: 35, 39)
It is time, O people of God, to stand up, stand firm for “if God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) Put on the whole armor of God so that you will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Eph. 6: 10, 11) For, you see, our fight is not against our government or nation or committee, it is against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. But this is a battle that they—the evil—cannot win—God has already won the victory. So hang on, don’t let go, God will come and save you. His word is true for He has said, “I will!”
Dear Father, have mercy upon what You have created. Let the hands of justice fall and those who believe to be saved. In Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN
