The Weapon of Praise

“But you will sing, sing through an all-night holy feast!

Your hearts will burst with song, make music like the sound of flutes on parade,

En route to the mountain of God on the way to the Rock of Israel.

God will sound out in grandiose thunder, display his hammering arm, Furiously angry, showering sparks-cloudburst, storm, hail!

Oh yes, at God’s thunder, Assyria will cower under the clubbing.

Every blow God lands on them with his club is in time to the music of drums and pipes

God in all-out, two-fisted battle, fighting against them.”

Is 30:29-32

Lord… Who Will Win The Election??

Since the day Trump announced his candidacy, I believed he was the only one who could beat Hillary, and that was what was necessary. I would spend a lot of time on social media in support of him and engaging in ”debate” with others, although I don’t like debating.

The most frustrating thing was to try to get through to Christians who seemed to have a brain block and did not understand that it was not about whether Trump was a Christian or not. This was true even after he was nominated as the Republican candidate for President. America was about to fall off the cliff and he was our only chance.

Remember how a lot of Republicans were still not with him until after he took office? When I think of some of them, some no longer in office, it reminds me of Rev. 3:16. You know, the “spew you out” verse. That period of time was so intense, so stressful. We were in the battle for our nation, as I perceived it, not unlike the Revolutionary War.

Sometime in September 2016, I knelt beside my bed and asked the Lord, “Who will win the election? Please just tell me.” He said,”That’s the wrong thing to ask. Don’t ask. You SAY! Declare what you desire about the election.” I began to declare Mark 11:23. “Mountain of impossibility” (that Trump could win) “be removed and cast into the sea.”

Remember how the media kept saying “He can’t get to 270 electoral votes. Impossible. There is no path to victory.” I kept declaring, “Mountain of impossibility..be removed and cast into the sea!” I had my ups and downs as far as feeling hopeful, but I just kept declaring….by faith. I am actually pretty conservative about putting my faith out there. I think that I’ve missed a lot by being too cautious, not wanting to say something is of God, when maybe it’s just me.

On November 8th, election day, I woke up feeling anxious in my spirit; just feeling down. I was making my lunch around noon. While standing at the stove, I reached way down into my spirit, and just out of obedience, I simply declared the scripture once again, visualizing it, as I always did.

SUDDENLY, I felt like I was “jerked up!” I was quickly taken up and I KNEW that he had already won!!!

This was not hoping. It was real!

I was shouting, praising God, dancing around in my kitchen. My husband called and I was so excited, shouting… “He’s already won!!!” He was happy that I was happy, but he thought, ”Ok. That’s great.” LOL

That joy never left, and that night, as we watched the returns and the media was still saying that Hillary would win, I was so joyful because I knew what was going to happen.

I can’t describe it. I just knew!

Needless to say… when he was declared the winner and Hillary conceded, it was a party!! My husband and I went outside and danced in the street in front of our house. (Something I said that I would do from the beginning.)

I’ve had other people, including non Christians, say that they knew Trump would win in 2016. But, this is MY story, and to me it was an awesome miracle! A supernatural experience. I am so grateful to the Lord for it. I post this here tonight to hopefully be an encouragement to all you warriors of God.

Today, I kept singing that old song”He didn’t bring us this far to leave us. He didn’t teach us to swim to let us drown. He didn’t build His home in us to move away. He didn’t lift us up to let us down.”
