Cast Up A Highway
SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD
SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD
Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.
Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.
Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)
13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!
- Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.
Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!
Psalm 91:14 (AMP)
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)
Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!
Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.
3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
4 You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
5 You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!
7 I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave, you are there.
9 If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.
You are always with me.
You will guide me.
You will always be my support. Your strength
upholds me, protects me, supports me.
Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.

I have seen the enemy’s plans. This whole impeachment scam is just another way to attack our President. The enemy lost the election of 2016, and have worked and planned and schemed to get rid of our duly elected president. He, however, has moved ahead and done a fabulous job for our country despite the enemy's plans to destroy hiim.
"Lord I see this army of evil that has risen against us in this nation. It has been planned for a long time, and continues to rush in to plant it’s evil ideology into our youth. It began by taking over the schools and teaching false doctrines, and continues by feeding the minds of our peoples with lies and deceptions. Now they rally together to rise up against our President to destroy him and our nation. They use many foils to distract and to create disharmony. It has been well thought out and well planned. It has indeed become an army of demons using people to do its work. Lies, deception, distractions. It becomes stronger like dark clouds of a vicious storm seen on the horizon marching forth."
Then one sleepless night, the Holy Spirit began downloading more of the vision into my thoughts:
These enemy schemes have been carefully plotted out over years; and with the last election the architect of hate has put them expertly into place. Oh, yes, the enemy has moved upon the wealth of men like Soros and his puppets to create the battle plans we fight today. All the demonstrations, the fake news, the paid rioters, all were carefully planned out ahead of time. The strategies, the propositions, the carefully thought out formulas of destruction, were all ready to put into action. If we consider numerous distractions and attacks upon our President, the distorted interpretations of his words, the collaborating media, the false investigations against him and his family, one can put it all together and truly see the real picture.
My vision contains it in a very large evil fraudulent globe of hate. It is a scary picture when discovering how massive and well backed, well planned it is. Yet, one thing we know, the devil will never defeat our mighty God Who has not been taken by surprise. God created this nation; it is His; and He will not allow the enemy to destroy it!
We place containment around satan in his globe of hate and devastation; he will not succeed! We see him and his ruination coming soon.
On the side of light the truth believers, the followers of Christ, walk in His ways of love. Lord, let righteousness prevail. Permit the seed of righteousness, from which this nation was born, to live and not die, but continue to bear fruit for all men, in the name of Jesus. For it is by Your design, oh Lord, that this nation came to be.
My friends, this war may be in the spirit realm, but it is real!!
We must be prayer warriors! Ephesians 6 gives us weapons with which to overcome. We can no longer sit back in complacence, or in fear. It is time to step up and do battle! Stand. And pray! Call upon our mighty Lord God to come and fight with us as our Leader, our General, and our Guide. We trust in Him! Truth speaks~ God shall have the victory!!
(Thanks to Dave for the awesome picture!)
(GPAN Prayer) Revive us again that Your people may rejoice in You for then we will not depart from You. Revive us, give us life and we will call upon Your Name. Restore us, O Lord God of hosts and cause Your face to shine in pleasure, approval, and favor on us and we shall be saved. Father, we are confident that no power which earth or Hell could interpose, would be allowed permanently to stop revival from coming to the church and our nation. We know that Your desire is for all men to be saved and to know Your love personally.

I've pretty much had it with the enemy's works in our country!:
Lord I see this army of evil that has risen against us in this nation. It has been planned for a long time, and continues to rush in to plant it’s evil ideology into our youth. It began by taking over the schools and teaching false doctrines, and continues by feeding the minds of our people lies and deceptions.

It has indeed become an army of demons of hate using people to do its work. Lies, deception, distractions. It becomes stronger like dark clouds of a vicious storm seen on the horizon marching forth.
Late last night I found this from Global Prayer Alert Network. In reading this petition below, the truth shouts out:
Father, You have said in Your Word:
1 Timothy 2:1-2 (AMP)
First of all, then, I urge that petitions (specific requests), prayers, intercessions (prayers for others) and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all people, 2 for kings and all who are in [positions of] high authority, so that we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
Father, we come humbly but boldly before Your throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need for our nation—the United States of America. And by rights of creation, this nation belongs to You for surely You have created this United States of America.
This nation did not come from men. It came from You. You put the seed of this nation in men's hearts even before they knew. And You have saved other nations for Your Name’s sake. We implore You to come in the fullness of Your glory for the sake of Your Name in this nation.
You are the one and only God of the United States of America. Our heritage goes back and back to You, the founder of this nation. We thank You and praise You for it, Lord. You did not forget about us; You are mindful of that which You have said, Father.
No, You are not done with us, for You who have begun a good work will see to it to completion Thank You that You are working in and through the church of the living God. You are building Your church, and the gates of hell will not prevail!
Matthew 16:17-18 (MSG)
. . .God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.
Declaring that the church is increasing and growing in these last days! We are moving from one degree of glory to another! Calling forth the glory of God to be seen in this nation!
Therefore Lord, we bring our plea before You. We set our case before You. We offer it in the Name of Jesus, guaranteed by the Blood of Jesus, sealed by the Holy Spirit, and laid out before You by Your own people. You are righteous and You will not let Your Word fall to the ground, and You are faithful to those who have sowed their lives for You. We fully expect the course of this nation to be aligned with Your plan, with Your ideas, with Your thoughts, with Your ways, and that You would sweep this nation up in Your arms, and again draw her to You. Draw her to You. Oh Lord. Draw her to You. Draw Your people to You in a great sweeping across this nation--a great sweeping, oh Lord. We request this of You. We require it of You.
Father, raise up the church and help us to shake off those things that have hindered us. Break off the bonds of tradition and religion that have held us bound. Cause us to go forth with the pure revelation of truth that’ll cause the lame to leap for joy and the blind to see both spiritually and physically.
Continue to seal Your promises in our heart by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Help us to hold fast to the confession of our faith without wavering, for You, the One who has promised, is faithful to bring it to pass. Strengthen us in our inner man as we feed on Your Word and solidify our complete trust in You.
Thank You Lord! We know You are faithful. Even as we see evil plans unfolding, we know You are in control and we bow before You trusting You.

(Romans 12:2 Amp.)
And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].
We thank You Lord, that You have a plan for each of our lives! We join in prayer, Lord, with GPAN:
We will reach the lost and bring in those souls, Father
Thank You for supernatural change in the church of the living God
Each and every believer has been called to be an ambassador of Christ
Calling for advancement in the name of Jesus
We cast off those old garments that would hinder and limit; You will clothe us with Your majesty and with Your righteousness
Thank You for those time-released anointings, that they would be released in these last days
We declare~ We will be doers of the Word and not hearers only!
Get your feet out of concrete and get moving and get going
Hallelujah, to the Lamb of God who says,
“Don’t wait for another day when you hear My voice—get up and obey!”
Calling for a change in the media, change in the media!
They will change and conform to the plan of God,
to the will of God and to the Word of God
Every evil way is being rooted out of the media and every form of the media
Calling for godly men and women to arise to a greater degree and a greater level
Grant unto them utterance of and by Your Spirit, O God
That they would speak clearly the truth in Jesus’ name!
We pray for greater accountability for the media outlets
No, they will no longer speak what they feel, but they would speak the truth Let the people rise up and hold them accountable, Father
We will no longer tolerate or listen to that which is not born of You
Thank You for discernment in the body of Christ,
that they would be able to discern that which is right, Lord
Father, we will stand with You and Your Word of truth. We lift our President and Vice President and the governments up to You calling for Your hand of protection to be over them all.
Thank You for bringing us strong honorable men to lead our government; we ask You to be with them, guide them, and dispense wisdom to them.
We ask You to disassemble the shadow government that is disrupting our nation with lies and deceptions. Block the enemy, Lord, their plans and their wicked machinations. You have indeed successfully handled this same dragon in the past, and we know You will do it again.
We are full of joy knowing that You are our God, our leader, our Savior. We praise You and worship You!

It is so encouraging to get reminders from God! A recent Global Prayer Alert Network letter really lifted my spirits, and so I wanted to share a part of it with you:
The following prophecy was delivered by Brother Kenneth Copeland on October 11, 2013:
Coming to Its Greatest Hour Ever!
“I have seen the worst of them. And all that satan has ever been able to do, My forces,” saith the Lord, “have defeated him. He has not one victory to his name. Not one! Not one! He has not been successful—ever! And he will not be successful now.
“This is not the end of the United States of America. This is the end of the Babylonian, socialistic system that’s been attacking it and trying to take it over for the last 115 years. That’s come to a close.
“I will say this unto you,” saith the Lord. “This is the only nation that was given birth by people who love Me for the purpose of worshiping Me,” saith the Lord. “There’s never been another one. I formed the nation of Israel because I love them. But this nation is Mine. It was formed for Me. It was given to Me and I’m in covenant with it,” saith the Lord. “And it’s not done until I’m done—and I’m through with it. Praise God.
“And you hear people say, ‘Oh, I wonder what this country is coming to.’ I’ll tell you what it’s coming to. It’s coming to its greatest hour ever. It’s coming to its greatest place ever. Amen. I’m going to say that to you again. Satan has never ever had victory yet and he never will,” saith the Lord. I’ve dealt with rulers, I’ve dealt with politicians and devils down through the years that would make these fellows now look like pikers. I jerked the slack out of that pharaoh and I can jerk the slack out of some of these guys around now, too. And that time has come.
“I always reveal My plans to the leaders of all nations. Always. I always reveal My plan. It’s those who refuse to follow it that create the problems and the trouble. Ah, but the change has come and the momentum has swung in the other direction, and it’s going for you instead of against you. And if you’ll begin to praise Me, you’ll begin to see miracle after miracle after miracle after miracle from one end of this nation to the other—from coast to coast and from border to border. I am at work healing the land,” saith the Lord, “so give Me praise and sit back and relax and watch the show!”
AMEN! My friends, when you begin to be weighed down by the fake news and other attacks on our President, remember God is in control. He put President Trump in charge for His own purposes and He will not allow the devil and its cohorts to win this battle! May these words restore you and open your eyes again to the truth! Continue to stand knowing that our God will not be defeated! We stand together and we pray together; God will have the victory!

How sweet is the presence of the Lord! I have been in a recuperation process from surgery. It has been going really well; but the muscle healing gets to aching in the middle of the night and wakes me up. So I usually get up and lay on the couch, take a small pill, and read. It’s a quiet time; it’s dark out. The other night there was a thunderstorm, and what began to glimmer in my mind was the Power of the Lord. Sudden flashes of light, crashing of thunder. As I lay there, I could feel the Presence of the Lord fill the room. How sweet it was! Slowly I heard the storm move on as the thunder became a soft rumble. My eyes closed, a smile appeared on my face, a sigh of complete contentment preceded a deep sleep.
Have you experienced this too? Our God is so good! Peace is a place that is sometimes hard to find these days in our world. But as we realize that God is in control, and there exists more than we can see with our 5 senses, we can find peace. Yes there is another “place”; it’s called the supernatural, or the Kingdom of Jesus. The Bible tells us so:
Colossians 1:13 (AMPC)
13 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
It's a "place" and if we have this truth planted deep in our hearts, our faith will lead us to a richer understanding of God’s promises! It allows us to live in peace, because we know that God loves us dearly and provides His promises to us.
By faith we reach out and take them for ourselves. When we understand God is sovereign, none of the evil happenings in the nations will prevail. We as Christians call upon our mighty God to protect us, to lead our President and other world leaders toward peace. We pray God to give wisdom and strength to our governments. Meanwhile, we can live with inner peace.
My friends, God told us~
Jeremiah 33:2-3 AMP
“Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is His name, ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’
There is so much our finite minds do not comprehend, but as we allow our faith and trust in God to expand, He will reveal more to us. You and I were born for such a time as this! There is so much potential in each of us! Let us drown ourselves in the love and wonder of our beautiful Lord God, and thus become all we were meant be!

We are so blessed to live in this country. Lord You have placed Your hand over it. We began to slide on a slippery slope of evil for awhile; but you have now given us a President who wants our country to return to the righteousness You originally created it to be. He is working hard to do that, but the enemy began to set up and has created it's plan to undermine and attempt to thwart everything our President is trying to do. They control the media and even create fake news to come against President Trump. They will do anything to beat him down. But Father, You are God of this universe, and You are God Creator of this world, and You established this nation for Yourself.
The enemy has a goal to defeat Your good man and drown him under attacks; but there are many in our country who have come to respect him deeply for not caving in to the attempts against him.
What the liberals are doing is treasonous, especially as the enemies of America are creating more warlike schemes to become top dog in the world. North Korea is trying to get to the point of threatening us with nuclear bombs, and China is supporting them; Russia is not trying to stop them. From the Middle East comes ISIS and Muslim Jihadist spreading out to become a destroying power to all who do not choose to be Muslims.
It could be downright depressing Lord~ IF ~ we did not know, love, trust and rely on You. If we trust You and pray for our nation we know You will stand with us:
2 Chronicles 7:14
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
My friends, we live in dangerous times right now, but you and I were all chosen to live out our lives in this time and space. That indicates that we have a mission, and it is our goal to discover what God would have each of us do. If you do not know yours, seek God’s face. He loves us dearly and will help you. He promises us in His Word:
Isaiah 41:10 NIV
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
My friends let us join together in prayer for our nations asking God’s divine help to fight the enemy and then we will be victorious in our battle!

Those who are working evil against our nation will never succeed, for God is much stronger than the enemy. Their atrocious acts are not scaring us, for we know their lies will not benefit them in the end. More and more people are refusing to trust anything that comes out of the “fake news” stations. It’s well known now that it is all lies or facts deceptively portrayed, so cannot be trusted. Truth will win in the end. We stand with President Donald Trump and know he sincerely loves our nation and wants to make it the great nation under God that it was created to be. We trust that God will lead him and his aim is for truth and righteousness for our nation and our allies as well.
[The Work of a Leader] Teach your people to obey the leaders of their country.
They should be ready to do any good work.
Our President Trump is standing strong despite the vicious attacks’ against him. We stand with him and lift him in prayer. We know our God is faithful and can be trusted to help him accomplish the right and moral deeds necessary to return us to greatness. So be not afraid; those mutinous dissidents do not see the light and cannot bring it to our country, but our President can. Let's stand together in prayer for our rightful government officials that they will not be intimidated, but will stand courageously to perform the job they were elected to do.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 (AMP)
First of all, then, I urge that petitions (specific requests), prayers, intercessions (prayers for others) and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all people, 2 for kings and all who are in [positions of] high authority, so that we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
This is from a GPAN prayer; let us join in:
Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members.
We pray that our leaders would stand in Your strength
Thank You, Father, that no weapon formed against them will prosper. In the name of Jesus, they’ll only stand stronger and taller.
Isaiah 54:17 (AMP)
“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.
We speak this over every state, every governor, all the positions of authority in our nation, all the levels of authority.
We’re entering into different days and ways and plans,
We pray prosperity over the United States… spirit, soul, body. Every lie shall be exposed!
For those in authority who have accepted the status quo, and accepted to be that, in the name of Jesus, we take authority over that, over that darkness that has kept this country bound, that darkness that has kept this country in place, that has made this country ineffective.
In the name of Jesus, we loose that darkness out of those places; we apply the blood of Jesus upon those offices and upon those places, those seats of power that have been stagnant, who have not taken their positions, the righteous position, the plan of God that is supposed to exist in this hour… no more, no more… it’s time
It’s time to say that every single day they come into those places that they know within them that it is the charge, it is that place within them that they need to reach. It is finding the truth that the darkness tries to hide. Instead of looking from the outside, looking on the inside, knowing what is the righteous law, no longer looking at what is the popular thing to do. It’s time for leadership; it’s time for direction in the name of Jesus~ to allow the direction of the Holy Spirit and the plan of God to be prevalent.
We pray that the power and anointing that the Most High has appointed for such a time as this would be prevalent throughout this nation through every church, through everybody in the name of Jesus within this nation; that they too would no longer just get by because they would recognize that it is a mandate from the Most High.
They use their voices and no longer allow the darkness to enter this country, but they stand up against that darkness and deny it the right to exist; they will take authority over those places that have tried to rise up in this nation!
It is not okay to accept the status quo! It is a demand from the Most High to stand up and be counted. It’s time to take back this nation and secure it for the end time. This nation is important in that plan. In the name of Jesus stand in the spirit, stand against the wiles of the enemy.
Take authority over the principalities and powers and the darkness in high places. Take authority over those things that have tried to come against this nation, this state, against the churches, against things that have been said that should be cast down, put under foot. They can no longer rule and reign; but the Holy Ghost is to rule and reign in this hour. Lift man to allow him to get into a place where he can now move and do the things that the plan of God has created for this hour and this time.
Thank You Father for Your love of our nation and for giving us Your plan and our ability to work with You in prayer.
My friends, I humbly ask that you join with us in prayer for our nation and for every nation of the world. With God all things are possible. Let us believe and trust in our almighty loving and gracious God who sent His Son Jesus to bring all of us in every nation salvation. He will not leave us now! Our God is faithful!

Don’t know about you, but I am getting disgusted and mighty tired of all the “fake news” and deceptions that the enemy is shouting through his workers in our country. They will do any evil thing to put down our President. Their seditious acts will come out to entrap them in the end. And nothing they do will cause God’s plan to change. President Trump was God’s plan for our nation, and He will carry it out.
Sitting at home there is not much I can do except engage the power of prayer. This is Lynn Hammond’s prayer and I invite you to join with us in it:
The following is a prayer for our nation by Pastor Lynne Hammond:
Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan.
Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception. Guide President Trump's decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him. Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame. We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation.
Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus' name. Slanderers will not be established in America. We pray for our Congress, our Supreme Court, our Military leaders and our intelligence agencies. Let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders.
We exercise the authority you have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy. We cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy, and fires from hell that have burned in our cities.
We speak grace and peace over America. We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land. Grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak your Word. We pray for a mighty outpouring of your Spirit with signs, wonders and miracles. We expect the wisdom of this world that is earthly, sensual and devilish to depart and vanish until Your mighty work in America becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere. We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for your goodness, mercy and prosperity, in Jesus' name, Amen.

Good morning, my Lord! In all things You are wonderful! Looking out the window where last week there were black spider web branches, I now enjoy green leaves dancing in the sun. You Lord designed our world this way, ever changing seasons. Like my life which seems to transgress through seasons too. These end times have brought much variety to life, not always good. We have a good man as president, with evil ones trying to bring him down.
Lord I ask Your protection around President Trump, and your wisdom in him. I lift him up to You, my mighty God, and put him and the political situation in Your hands. Your will shall be done no matter what the enemy tries to do. I ask that truth be revealed, that all the machinations of the enemy be foiled, that all the evil he tries to perpetrate will come back on him and his minions.
Many have God in their own little box, and they believe they can judge Him and disobey Him with abandon. They do not understand that our Holy God is so far above them! I like the Message version of:
Ocean saw you in action, God,
saw you and trembled with fear;
Deep Ocean was scared to death.
Clouds belched buckets of rain,
Sky exploded with thunder,
your arrows flashing this way and that.
From Whirlwind came your thundering voice,
Lightning exposed the world,
Earth reeled and rocked.
You strode right through Ocean,
walked straight through roaring Ocean,
but nobody saw you come or go.
Despite the troubled times, the atrocities of ISIS, the threats of dictators, the evil maneuverings of the enemy, God is still in control, and in the end it will come out as He desires. His wish is that all may be saved, but those who choose to reject Him and His Son’s salvation gift, will be defeated in the end and for eternity.
Lord your goodness is profound! None can even begin to match it. As I listen to the the water cooler talk, I hear people’s confusion. Strike the lightening of truth in their brains Lord. Let it suddenly become clear to them that the enemy and all his fake news and lies is false. Reveal to them Your ways, Your goodness, Your truth. Lord it is Your Presence we seek. When we are in Your presence clarity is evident. We trust in You.
As my friend’s prayer invites~
O, my most exulted Ruler . . .
Father, Spirit, Jesus, . . .ONE
Invite me into Your heart
I will willingly come
I will turn my fears
of such awesome unity to You
I shall accept the change
That such unity will bring . . .
By uniting my will with Yours,
Father, Spirit, Son . . . ONE
I trust, I repent, I rejoice,
for I see the heart of Jesus.
Being united with our God, bowing our will down to His, giving our heart, body, and soul to Him will bring divine guidance, love and joy into lives. I love You; I adore You; I enjoy You; I obey You; I give myself to You, my God. I know You invite us all to join with You~
“I do not pray for these alone [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for [all] those who [will ever] believe and trust in Me through their message,[THIS LINE IS JESUS PRAYING FOR YOU AND I] 21 that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe [without any doubt] that You sent Me.”
Jesus loves us so much! His joy is to be united with us, that we may be united with Him and the Father. Holy Spirit, through Your power it comes. Thank You! Lord, I join with You in prayer that people will hear Your call to come! You accept everyone just as they are to hear Your call and come into Your heart. They hear, repent, and invite Jesus to come into their hearts, and their life changes; they become new creatures; transformation happens:
2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Step into a new life of joy and purpose. Nothing compares to being who we were created to be, and living the life we were purposed to live.

Came downstairs this one morning to see what my window would tell me about the outside world. It was yellowy foggy and weird looking; and suddenly the wind came with a terrific force and tiny snow pellets were sent swirling. Trees branches were bending this way and that. It almost had a malevolent feel to it.
The day before I had read that witchcraft has been brewing, and wants with its’ diabolical thinking to do evil to our nation and our government and overcome God’s love.
I pray, Light of Love, shine upon our nation and all Your people in it. Bring Your power to cleanse all evil away; protect our President and His family. Protect our government as only You know how to do. As the demons are called to wreck havoc in our country, send, O Lord, Your warrior angels to do battle. You know how to handle this situation, Lord. Show me how to pray Holy Spirit.
And now I commend you to God [placing you in His protective, loving care] and [I commend you] to the word of His grace [the counsel and promises of His unmerited favor]. His grace is able to build you up and to give you the [rightful] inheritance among all those who are sanctified [that is, among those who are set apart for God’s purpose—all believers].
I read that witches all over the world had been called to curse President Trump and our leaders. It keeps getting more bizarre. This is a spiritual battle and with the viciousness of the enemy’s attacks against our President, the more convinced I am that he is indeed God’s chosen leader for this time. We gather and pray; we speak out when called to do so, but we have no fear, because this battle is the Lord’s. It’s like:
2 Chronicles 20:12
For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. . .
14 Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Jahaziel son of Zechariah, . . . descendant of Asaph, as he stood in the assembly.
15 He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.
Indeed the Lord was totally victorious in the battle. Jehoshaphat and his people were saved from a vast enemy seeking to destroy them, but they trusted in God; now we too must trust that God’s will shall be done for us too.
Father, God of Love, we bow before Your throne in confidence and obedience. We lift our arms in thanksgiving! You are our Almighty faithful God! Thank You for enhancing our President with Your wisdom and courage.
So, my friends, fear not. However, I do thank you for continuing to pray God’s will over our nation.

A simple but powerful prayer of my friend Sharon:
Grant to me
the gift of hope
the gift of love
the gift of joy
the gift of unity with Your heart
Grant to me
my desire of humility
and the rich understanding of
the unworthiness of my soul
Let me see
the darkness of my soul is to be made
Radiant in unity with
the Father, the Son, the Spirit . . .One
Help me Lord to see my own unrighteousness. I am no better than any out there with hostile words of hate. I don’t live in some ivory tower; I know that I am imperfect, but Lord I bow before You asking for forgiveness for any arrogance I may have in my heart. Show me Your will and Your ways.
Grant to me the gift of hope, of true agape love, of Your joy Jesus, and unity with Your heart. Let me love what You love and hate what You hate. Bring my brothers and sisters under Your covering of hope and love shedding peace abroad into all hearts. You, my God, are mightier than the destroyer ever thought of being; You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the land and the seas. In You is all goodness and faithfulness!
Lord God I know all this disharmony among Your children is hard for You to see; You are love. Demonstrate Your agape love to Your children, Lord. Send Your legions to clear out our cities, our states, our nation, and our world from the enemy and its demons of hate and destruction. I remind You Lord that this is Your nation, established with Your blessing to honor You and have You as its foundation. Return it to the original precepts on which it became a nation. Thank You Lord, my God.
My friends, nothing and no one is mightier than our God. The devil thinks he is; he got evicted from heaven for rebelling against God trying to be mightier than Him. So satan came to earth to finagle Adam into giving him rule over the earth~ until Jesus came and took back the keys from him. Now the devil is a toothless dragon defeated by Jesus. My friends, do not allow the enemy to cause fear in your heart. Rather focus on Jesus and call on the Son of God to help you conquer any situation and be at peace.
We humble ourselves and bow before God worshipping Him as our Lord Almighty. Let Him teach us and rescue us from the chains of the enemy’s hatred. Submit ourselves to the love of God, our Father, Creator whose love is bigger and deeper than we can imagine. I don’t know why, but He does treasure us as His beloved children. Let us love each other in obedience to His commands with thankfulness and humbleness of heart.

Praise You mighty God! You will not stand for the enemy’s continuing to come against and trying to subvert President Trump whom You placed as head of our government. There are many standing in the gap for him and for the USA. Thank You Lord! You are mighty and strong and what You will, shall be! I want to shout out~ I LOVE YOU LORD! COME LORD JESUS!
To what can I compare these days? A spirit of discontent and hate is being stirred up. Reminds me of the movie “the Birds”. What use to be gentle and nonthreatening has been perverted into vicious and terrifying. Division is being fermented; hate is being taught. Thankfully, we have a God who is Love. His love is more powerful than all the hate the enemy can cast out into our world.
Peace. Jesus told us He would give us His peace. Trust is the key. If we trust Jesus, we can have peace knowing He is all powerful God; and He will bring about His will into our world. So if we love God and trust Him, we have no need to fear. We lift Him up, praise Him, and thank Him for His many blessings while putting our world into His hands. All will be well.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
My friends, we can change the atmosphere of our days one person at a time. As people begin to know God’s will and trust it, they will be able also to tap into His mighty love. As we love one another, the hatred will be cast out. Supernatural love cannot be overcome. Dip into the divine love of God, the joy that comes is catching; many others will be inspired by our animation.
Trust and hope go together; so as we trust God, our hope will open our eyes and expectation revealing a new doorway that God would have us walk through. Oh my friends, God has many wondrous experiences for us ahead. Do not be afraid to partake. We can trust an unknown future to a known God!
Do these times frighten you?

This is a confusing time to be living, and therefore it’s a time to be trusting You all the more, Lord.
Exodus 33:13 (AMPC)
13 Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You [progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with You, perceiving and recognizing and understanding more strongly and clearly] and that I may find favor in Your sight. And [Lord, do] consider that this nation is Your people.
I prostrate myself before Your throne, my God, giving my whole self to You. In me alone there is no worth, but with You in me there is nothing I cannot do. Come Holy Spirit, be active in me that I may progressively know You, hear Your words, and obey. You lead my life. Do all You want through me. Holy One I release my will to You, my mind, my mouth to You. I belong to You. You belong to me. Jesus, You have so generously given us Holy Spirit to be our mentor, guide, and counselor. Thank You. I love You Jesus.
Remember the song “Camelot”? Here's one stanza:
"I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
But in Camelot, Camelot
That's how conditions are.
The rain may never fall till after sundown.
By eight, the morning fog must disappear.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
Not too many years ago our country had that flavor. We were a strong and Godly nation where families were together. Neighbors often visited. Politics were never a separation in families and communities. We believed differently, but we were never bitterly opposed to the other party. We had a good system that worked well until this election. Now bitterness has caused division where there once was love. Do you remember when ours used to be a nation of “happily-ever-lftering”? It was always growing, changing, improving, blessed by God.
Jesus, Your second great commandment says we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. I lift up this nation and ask You to help us all to love each other. Your supernatural love in us is the only hope we have for unity to be restored, and nothing is impossible for You. I give this great country into Your hands, mighty God! I ask that all blinders be removed from people’s eyes, that Your truth will be revealed world wide.
Lord, I ask You to bless our President and keep him strong and safe, and surround his family with Your angels. Lord Please sort out this ugly work of the devil, the creator of hatred and chaos, the destroyer of peace and love; in Jesus name I ask. Amen.

This morning I was reading looking for a Scripture, and this one came before me:
1 Samuel 6:19-20(MSG)
God struck some of the men of Beth Shemesh who, out of curiosity, irreverently peeked into the Chest of God. Seventy died. The whole town was in mourning, reeling under the hard blow from God, and questioning, “Who can stand before God, this holy God? And who can we get to take this Chest off our hands?”
They had not reverenced the Holy Ark of the Covenant. and it cost them their lives. We are living at a time where God is treated with irreverence, as though He had little or no significance. Our government was working to get rid of God in our nation. However, God has placed a new man as President who will treat Him with respect and possibly even honor. We shall see.
The people, however, have decided they don’t like our new president; so the Democratic machine and the liberals who follow it are disrespecting the man God chose for our President. The media is making him out to be some kind of monster with lies and misrepresentations.
In the Bible there are more than one instance where God punished those who rebelled against Him and His chosen. This led me to look at the flooding rains in California and wonder. . . I would encourage all of us who have been in rebellion to begin to pray and repent for any defiance. And
please pray for all those who are suffering devastation from the floods!
It has amazed me that some disappointed liberals are calling those who voted for Trump “haters” Then I look at liberal vitriolic words of hate directed at those who chose to vote for Trump. Who really are the haters? Just saying. . .
I am not going to go on about this. Rather I am praying for those who are upset by President Trump’s victory. I’m praying for a softening of all hearts and for a new perception of the situation. My perception is~ what is happening now is led by communists like George Soros, the Democratic machine, and the Clinton Cartel and is an attempt to destroy our nation. I pray that the truth will be revealed.
I know some of you will not believe what I am saying. Just like I know what I read on your site about our President and Republicans are untruths that you believe.
I pray that Christ’s light on the whole situation will bring unity to our country again. I pray for complete truth to be shed abroad for all of us to see.

From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness or health in [the nation’s body]
—but wounds and bruises and fresh and bleeding stripes; they have not been pressed out and closed up or bound up or softened with oil.
[No one has troubled to seek a remedy.]
This morning I came across this Scripture and it rang a bell. It sounds like our nation. We are in a spiritual battle; we are a wounded people. The enemy wants us to become a defeated nation, and it is stirring up strife wherever it can. Our country is bleeding and bruised; people are being led to look at every negative they can find or make up, and encouraged to rebel.
We have a duly elected President, and he is our rightful President and those who rebel against him are doing the work of the enemy to split our nation and destroy it. They refuse to work together with him to begin his presidency and give him the rights that the conservatives gave to Obama despite their total disagreement with his liberal policies and methods. Conservatives did not march against Obama, and the media certainly would not cover it if they did. Now the liberal media are working with the Democrats attempting to stir up strife and break our country apart.
Liberals are unhappy with HRC’s defeat, so they are attempting to wreck President Trump’s way of bringing our country back to its original aims as written in our Constitution, which, by the way, made us a mighty nation. I remember as a child that it was said by our enemies that this nation could be conquered only from within. That is what is happening now. Is that what we really want?
Allow our President to do the job we elected him to do. Stop trying to turn national security into religious oppression; our country is much too vulnerable now! It was the people’s total disagreement with Obama’s and the Dem’s policies that made it possible for President Trump to be elected. If after 4 years we don’t like it, we can elect another. That has been the ways and strength of our nation. It has lasted over 2 centuries and grown strong. Rebellion within will destroy us. God has blessed our country and been our strength. We can pray to Him to help us; or we can reject Him and die as a nation. It is our choice.
I for one refuse to die without a fight. Our nation has been envied throughout the world. Many would be happy to see us conquered. We will suffer if that happens. But I trust in Almighty God. He enabled President Trump to be elected. This is His nation and I do not believe He will abandon us~ but we must live as an obedient people. We have a chance to look at our culture and change the ungodly ways it was heading.
You may disagree saying murdering babies is ok if the mom doesn’t want them, or removing God from our schools and communities is just constitutionally correct. You are wrong! There is nothing in our constitution that says anything about separation of church and state. That came from a letter that was saying we cannot allow government to restrict our ways of honoring and worshipping God. That’s why people settled here to begin with. England was forcing people to worship their ways only. Our forefathers did not want that to happen here, but that has been the goal of some in our government.
Thus our bruised and battered nation will go unhealed if we do not settle down and work together for ourselves under a rightfully elected president. Come, my friends, let us bow our heads together before God and pray for our leaders and our country’s unity. Let us command our media to cease and desist its attempts to keep the strife going. Who are the owners of our TV stations, our newspapers? They are using media for propaganda; the Dems want their way. We don’t.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (AMP)
and if My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer offered in this place. 16 For now I have chosen and sanctified and set apart for My purpose this house that My Name may be here forever, and My eyes and My heart will be here perpetually.
This is God's land. His people settled this country to be free to worship Him. Our Christian religious freedoms have been under heavy attack. Godly change is required.

Whoops! Slippin and sliding into the New Year! 2016 rushed so fast and now is gone almost forever! We thank God for all the blessings of this year.
Now we bow down our hearts to Him in worship, reverence, and thanksgiving for His watchful protection over our nation and all the countries of the world this New Year.
Lord I pray for the total defeat of the enemy who is still trying to bring down Your love all over the world. And the evil one does not want to release any hold he has left on our government either. However, we know You put Donald Trump as our next president for Your reasons and You will aid and protect him. We trust in You Lord. We lift him up to You Lord asking Your hand to be over him. Thank You.
Meanwhile Lord, we will do our best to be about Your business of lifting You up as the Light of the World. You are the Creator and the King of Kings! It is before Your throne alone that we bow. Lead us and guide us in Your ways, Lord, that by the end of our earthly life span, we will hear Your voice speak, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” I ask that You will make Your Light shine brighter than ever before this New Year.
My end of year prayer to You: Mend hearts Lord. This election time resulted in a lot of bitterness. Those who lost are still feeling like they were treated unfairly and were cheated out of the victory. And their hurt and anger is still being stirred up by the enemy.
However, You Lord are able to heal people’s hearts, and we ask You to bring healing balm to their emotions and show them Your heart. Bring them even closer to You. Any who harbor bitterness, hatred, and anger, such strong negative emotions, will cause great unhappiness in themselves and those around them. Please help them Lord as only You can; bring them peace.
2017 is about to be born, and Lord we ask that You protect it and allow it to mature fully into Your plans. We trust You Lord!

Luke 2:6-14 (AMP)
While they were there [in Bethlehem], the time came for her to give birth, 7 and she gave birth to her Son, her firstborn; and she wrapped Him in [swaddling] cloths and laid Him in a manger, because there was no [private] room for them in the inn.
8 In the same region there were shepherds staying out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and shone around them, and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people. 11 For this day in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (the Messiah). 12 And this will be a sign for you [by which you will recognize Him]: you will find a Baby wrapped in [swaddling] cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Then suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host (angelic army) praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest [heaven],
And on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased.”
Picture created by artist Carol Loomis.
Lord pierce our hearts with truth. As You lay in that manger warm and fed, Your little eyes search and find the joyful faces of Your parents, and a contentment settles as sleep claims You. On my way here this night, I could not help but notice an exceedingly bright star appears to be casting it’s light upon Your resting place. Now many will be coming to visit You, curiosity alone will draw some, while a wonder and hunger in others will be calling them to find You little Jesus. So this night will not be a quiet time exactly, yet the peace will remain. Lord let this light call people of today to search You out.
Lord God, As we go into this holy season, many are upset, some angry that their person is not head of our country now, but I know Lord, all things are in Your hands; You are the One who will guide our nation, and I trust in You. I bow before Your will.
Lord this special time comes at the end of our calendar year, and I am glad. Our world is in chaos with ISIS plotting and murdering innocent people; Christians in the middle east are being tortured and the godless are trying to exterminate them. It’s a repeat of what happened to the Jewish people at the time of World War II. Our country has not escaped the spirit of violence which is attempting to keep discord alive here.
But Jesus. Yes, Jesus came to bring love, peace and joy. He is the Light of the World and if we walk with Him, we will not walk in darkness.
I was thinking of the shepherds in the field that night. I can see them settling down and chatting quietly together, and then suddenly came a shock, a great angel stood shining in the night and actually speaking to them. They must have looked at first like a deer in the headlights. . . wide eyed, mouth open, speechless in fear.
Then in a calming voice the angel said, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people.” And as he explained to them, expectation and a joy began to build within their hearts. And they beheld a choir of heavenly host singing joyous praise to God! And they left the field to find the Babe who was to be their Savior.
Lord, today in the disruptions going on in the world, we can use a focus on the purity, beauty and innocence of a baby. Jesus, let Your Peace and Love rain down upon our atmosphere, cleansing the harsh hard hatreds away replacing them with a trust in You. Jesus I pray for the quiet Peace of that Holy Night of Your Birth to become wide spread in all our nations this season. May Your Love, Joy, and Peace prevail!

Good morning my Lord! Slept in today and am slow moving and thinking. Haven’t had my first cup of coffee yet. Had three days of holiday busy, ya know, helping daughter prepare her home for the celebration on day one; then day two was the big wonderful family gathering, so preparing food etc; then day three having fun with our youngest grandkids, teens and preteens. We love them dearly, but it is an energy expending time of joy. So today was sleep-in morning and plans for relatively lazy.
It’s nice to have time to sit and visit with my Lord and ask His plan for the week ahead. He’s pretty good at schedule planning. I pray for our new government, I ask for a globe of protection around them and their families. And then I “saw” Washington DC full of these demon angels hiding in so many dark and murky places, and so I prayed that God would send His angel armies to rout the evil ones out of DC. that the light may once again shine there.
O Lord, all things are possible for You! I join with brothers and sisters around the world that are praying for out country, that it will return to the strong godly nation that began so long ago. I join in thanksgiving to You for Your help and answered prayers; now Lord we bow in thanks for Your mighty touch upon our new president and the government that You will help him develop!
All the enemy ruckus about a recount will not be rewarded. For President Trump is in Your hands, and Your Word says:
Is 43:11-13 (AMPCE)
I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior.
12 I have declared [the future] and have saved [the nation in times of danger], and I have shown [that I am God]—when there was no strange and alien god among you; therefore you are My witnesses, says the Lord, that I am God.
13 Yes, from the time of the first existence of day and from this day forth I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder or reverse it?
We give this land to You, O Lord. We do not know what machinations the others may use to try to manipulate the recount, but we trust, O Lord, that You will expose any attempt to change the truth of President Trumps’ victory.
We pray, You chose him and You will support him. Thank You Lord. You have brought us through other dangerous times, You will carry us through this one. Amen.

Before I continue with today's blog, I want to apologize to any I may have offended with my last blog. It has since come out that the protesters against Trump are paid to go out and protest and do not represent our good American people. So I am sorry that I did not wait to get the whole story. God bless you all! As we work together in love we will continue to make our nation all that God created it to be!
This is the scripture that ended this chapter in the book Cast Up A Highway shared in my last post:
Acquaint now yourself with Him [agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will] and be at peace; by that [you shall prosper and great] good shall come to you.
22 Receive, I pray you, the law and instruction from His mouth and lay up His words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty [and submit and humble yourself before Him], you will be built up; if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents,
24 If you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth], 25 And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure,
26 Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God. 27 You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you, and you will pay your vows. Job 22:21-27
This scripture does a good job of putting it together:
- “Acquaint NOW yourself with God...”
Read His Word. Hear His Word. Consume His Word, be steeped in His Word. (Here is a tidbit for you: the word ‘steeped’ means to ‘extract the essence of’ Steep a tea bag in hot water, and the water takes on the aroma, the taste, the color, and the character of the tea. Steep yourself in the Word, and take on the color and character of Christ, the Word. (See John 1.)
- “Agree with God,”
Conform your will to His and be at peace. Read His Word, listen to His Word, and see where you need to conform your will to His. If you follow His instructions He promises great good will come to you.
- “Receive His laws and instructions from His mouth,”
God has placed His laws and instructions in His Word. He gives the words, and Your job is to receive them, and apply them to your life. Obedience to God is how we demonstrate our love for Him.
- “Submit and humble yourself before Him”.
Lay your beam of life down in submission, giving up control to Him, trusting Him, and He will build you up and support you.
- “Put unrighteousness far from your tents”.
Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and invite Him to live in you and to be the most vital part of your life. Love and obedience are the keys.
- “Make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure”
Make God the priority in your life, then you will have such delight in Him! Either the abundance or the lack of money can draw you away from God. Trust Him in both circumstances to be your guide. Engage in a two-way conversation with Him about it, He will hear your prayers, and you will receive His answers. And God’s favor will be upon everything you do.
Continually build faith-strength into your highway. As you face your tests, challenges and temptations with triumphant and exultant joy, you will have the favor of God lighting your way! Soak in His Word like a sponge today. Abide wholeheartedly in His love! Enjoy life with Him! Come out of the desert on your highway to joy and triumph. You now have the the tools to live a fruit-filled life on your own sturdy, purpose fulfilling, powerfully built highway of life!

I couldn't believe my eyes last night as the news media covered the losing team marching in rejection of our duly elected president! Disgust filled my soul. The media should be working to bring unity, not blowing on the coals of discontent. Those demonstrating are showing why they were losers; it is as the leaders taught them. Say what you want to come true and ‘the people’ will believe any lie. Well it did not work. The lies and the smear campaign against Donald Trump failed; Donald Trump overcame mistakes of his past and people saw truth through the lies. This is a capable and honorable man who prevailed and won the election.
Is he a sinless man? No. Are you perfect? Do you recall the story in the Bible where the town leaders brought the woman 'caught in adultery' to Jesus and trying to entrap Him, asked Him what should be done to her? He began writing in the sand and one by one her accusers slunk away. It’s often thought he was writing the sins of her accusers in the sand. Which one of you crying out lies against President Trump are innocent of ever saying something you are not this day proud of? Are you the same person you were 20 years ago? No. We grow and we change.
This man has raised a beautiful family which even Hilary praised. He understands business and economics; he can turn our sunken economy around. He admires and respects our veterans, and will take care of them as they deserve. He is respected by many in the Black and Latino communities. Putting up a wall along our borders does not make him a racist, it makes him a wise man. The Mexican people can cross our borders legally. If they want to be American citizens there is a way open to them, and they are welcome; but we do not want drugs and ISIS having easy access for entering our nation. Do you?
President Trump has an open mind and listens to men who stand for the Constitution that made our nation great; he will not be persecuting Christian’s rights nor any other, as the past political machine has been doing. He is a man of principle and deserves the right to be our president. The Bible says God puts our rulers in their place of authority. How wise is it to go against God’s chosen?
Romans 13:1-7 [AMP]
[ Be Subject to Government ] Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God [granted by His permission and sanction], and those which exist have been put in place by God. Therefore whoever resists [governmental] authority resists the ordinance of God. And those who have resisted it will bring judgment (civil penalty) on themselves. For [civil] authorities are not a source of fear for [people of] good behavior, but for [those who do] evil.
