In the Face of Political Confusion and Opposition in America – Here’s a Word of Encouragement by Aimee Herd via Breaking Christian News
It would be easy to throw up our hands and give in to despair that the opposition is just too strong, too relentless, too tiring—BUT…
This has been a week of swirling political allegations and accusations by the media against President Donald Trump; to the point of nausea.
And for those of us who had hoped the rabid, divisive voices—who’d condemned Trump from his first moments in office—would quiet and give our Commander in Chief a chance, it’s particularly frustrating.
The fact that our current President differs so greatly from his predecessor concerning matters important to Christians is, I believe, the main reason the ‘powers and principalities’ are trying so desperately to take him down.
James Dobson is right in noting, recently, that both Trump and Pence have been a friend and yes ‘defenders’ of the Church like none before them in those positions. President Trump has also been a champion for the pro-life cause like no other president in America’s history.
On a human level, these are two HUGE reasons that the extremely loud and liberal left is absolutely outraged, and has quite obviously maintained the goal of Trump’s impeachment since he first took the oath on January 20th.
On a spiritual level, these same reasons—coupled with an election that many Believers view as miraculous—have most certainly infuriated the enemy. The confusion that hangs in the air over Washington DC seems almost palpable, streaming into homes across America from our TVs and the internet. But God is not the author of that confusion.
It would be easy to throw up our hands and give in to despair that the opposition is just too strong, too relentless, too tiring.
But “Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” (Gal.6:9)
Fellow Believers, who appreciate the important advances for the lives of unborn children and mothers, and religious freedom, made possible by this administration, must NOT lose heart!
The intensifying darkness of the liberal and media hostility toward President Trump should cause us to pray MORE—not less—for his safety and success, and that of his family and entire team.
God—through President Trump—is draining the DC swamp, and it doesn’t want to be drained!
I’m reminded that things looked very dark for Moses, with the encroaching Egyptian army bearing down on the children of Israel, UNTIL God parted the Red Sea and made a way. Likewise, the walls of Jericho must have seemed completely impenetrable—and God’s instructions no match—until they fell to the ground.
The Lord’s instructions to the Church today are simple—but extremely powerful: to pray.
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior (1 Tim. 2:1-3) (Photo: Aimee Herd/via BCN)
So, the next time you’re watching the news and it seems to sap every ounce of your joy; pray harder—for the affecting situation, and for the strength, safety and wisdom of our President.
I will too.
