Wisdom and Understanding.
We pick up your Word tonight and consider the letter of Paul to the Ephesians. We apply it to our hearts and minds. Make us wise. Give us discernment. We look to YOU alone for truth. YOU are the way. YOU are the truth. YOU are the life. There is none other but YOU.
“May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you GRACE and PEACE. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.”
We declare! The PEACE of God that passes all understand would take over the hearts and minds of the American people. We declare! Peace over panic. We declare! Calm over chaos. We declare! Faith over fear. We declare! That GRACE would well up and wash over America. Wash over us. Wash over our President and His family. O Lord! Send your never ending grace down upon us.
“So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our FREEDOM with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.”
Thank you God for FREEDOM! He that the Son sets free is free indeed. We declare! Freedom over America. We declare! The enemy will not steal our freedom. He has been defeated by the blood of Jesus Christ and we are no longer slaves to condemnation, fear or guilt. We have been forgiven. We have been set free. Thank you Jesus for freedom!
“He has showered his kindness on us, along with all WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING. God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ - which is to fulfill his own good plan.
“And this is THE PLAN: At the RIGHT TIME he will bring everything together under the AUTHORITY of Christ - everything in heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and HE MAKES everything work out according to HIS plan.”
O Father. Give us wisdom, understanding and discernment as we navigate these unchartered waters. We need your direction. Oh! How we need discernment. We must TRY the spirits. We must test the words we hear and the words we read. Steady our hearts and minds so that we do not fall PREY to the antics and deception of the enemy.
You! Most Holy God. You have the authority! Your timing is IMPECCABLE. You are never early and never late. You are an ON TIME God. You will make everything work out according to your plan. Give our President wisdom and spiritual insight to follow your plan. Surround him. Protect him. Lead, guide and direct him in his decisions for the future of this Nation under God.
“I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident HOPE he has given to those he called. I also pray that you will understand the INCREDIBLE greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.
“Now he is FAR ABOVE any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else - not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things UNDER the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.” Ephesians 1
It’s ALL in your hands. We wait for you. We trust in you. All of our hope, refuge, security, assurance and confidence is in the Lord. The maker of the heavens and the earth. The keeper of our hearts. He will take care of what we have committed into his hands.
In Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
