Well, yesterday was a monumental day! Until 2020, this was a day historically proclaimed, where we were encouraged universally to celebrate Thanksgiving. Many people from all walks of life would gather to be thankful to God knowingly and some unknowingly.
Thankfulness and gratitude are prayers that God hears.
You know, there’s a difference between hearing with physical ears and hearing the Spirit. It’s how some of you believe in God but live in worry. You haven’t been able to get over how people talk and treat you, and having physical eyes, can’t clean up sin and unbelief in your own life. So if you can’t get past that, how can you war, speak, and hear in the Spirit? How do you have an actual clue about what God is really up to today?
Luckily, God hears the Spirit. There is a difference between hearing and listening. Though many are crying out, there is a very select dialogue, God hears today. And this is it.
President Trump is not the first leader in history ever used by God, and there is a reason why God chose Him. The most simple parallel in chronicle was God choosing Cyrus because Cyrus called upon God’s name, recognizing that his victories have been granted to Him by God. Trump came with a comet’s suddenness, but none of the nations’ idol oracles has anticipated it! God called Trump in righteousness to His service and whom victory meets at every step. The Lord will subdue nations before him and keep him ruler over kings. Trump will pass safely and unhindered, even by a way his feet had not trod and so swiftly that his feet did not touch the ground. For the Lord is the One guiding the destinies of the generations. Isaiah 41(25), 45
Don’t forget, just as God still upholds the covenant He made with Abraham today, God will keep the covenant He made with America’s founding fathers.
The truth is, there’s an evil in the world we can’t see with our physical eyes and ears, but God does, and He’s turning mischief over.
God spoke to me on January 12 of this year and said, “Great JOY is ahead! It isn’t all doom and gloom, but people need to know the hard truths. People can only ignore problems for so long, and they need to be hit with the truth. Now that you have an understanding of what I’m doing, where we’re going, why it must happen, and how it ends – we can settle into our work and enjoy it! Even when I knew wrong judgment was coming to ME on the cross, I still served with joy. Even when I knew Judas would betray Me, I still loved him with joy. I never treated him differently, and people who corrupt have the same access to grace, mercy, love, peace, and unity with Me as the consistently righteous.”
As thankfulness rises this weekend, God hears. And as you confess thankfulness with your mouth, it will silence your mind and heart to hear with clarity and peace what God has to say back. And remember, God talks back. He wants to talk to you more than you want to hear from Him.
Keep in mind that God is processional, and satan is the drama queen. God is confident and doesn’t need to yell for people to pay attention to Him, but satan kicks and screams just like the most insecure people in the world, for that’s the only way they can gain attention.
God is patient — giving everyone an equal opportunity to hear and come to Him. We’re the ones at each other’s throats ready to criticize, but He’s the One on the edge of a mercy seat, literally dying to give mercy to whoever looks at Him, even in the final moment.
Don’t be fooled by the silence. The noise has the enemy so distracted that they can’t see the power in place. But all in one day, they will.
President Trump is the first man of genuine faith placed into the White House in my day. Trump’s straightforward, simple, and public worship of God is the testimony of Jesus and the Spirit of prophecy (Revelation 19:10.) Trump sees what America doesn’t, One Who is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and the One who passes judgment, and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness.) (Revelation 19:11). See, Trump is excellent at hearing and fighting in the Spirit.
People consumed by worldly ways and its unbridled indulgence never wanted to choose or accept history’s greatest men of faith. Luckily, wrong belief, disobedience, and the flamboyant cry of undisciplined children have never negated God’s providence, power, or love for all His people.
Just like Jesus, people want to crucify Trump because of their sheer spite and envy (Mark 15:8-10). So the Judge handed him over as the people wished, but you’ll see him rise again, and you will remember every moment of faithfulness and promise God has spoken over his life, this country, and the world. This redemption is bigger than you seek or think.
