Lately I have been wondering, what should I write about next? I get so many glimpses of topics, insights & ideas, but I hesitate to just dive in & start scrambling out an article. I want to be focused.
…and so I have just settled on a word that I believe I heard from the Lord right after President Trump’s inauguration. That word has been confirmed to me, it seems, coming in from an unexpected direction. I am going out on a limb here…but I wouldn’t, if I didn’t think I was on the right track.
TREMENDOUS opposition rose up against Donald Trump, before & after his election, to prevent him from first, even being elected and then secondly, actually being sworn into office. But he was…and he was. Opposition continues its resistance to his position, his actions & his policies. Some of that opposition is just part of our American process, but not all of it. (My personal guess is, not most of it.)
Information abounds – some supposedly fake, some ‘leaked’ – on the world wide web, and it’s hard to know what’s what. How many levels deep, and at the very bottom (or perhaps I should say top), who is pulling each string, in releasing ‘information’, breaking ‘news’? But this stuff is out there, and unless one buries their head in the sand, it’s hard not to hear/see at least something. And the ‘somethings’ I’ve seen have caused me to believe that insidious actions are still being attempted by the overthrown parties, to subvert the Trump administration & its outcomes. Actions ‘outside the camp’ so to speak.
NONETHELESS the Trump campaign was victorious. Immediate Presidential decisions & actions were and will be released. Granted, resistance was triggered…but my point is, there was a victory and there was a release.
I believe that release from battles & circumstances will also be seen & felt Body-wide, throughout the Body of Christ and perhaps even in the lives of some not in/not yet in the household of faith. The powerful battles waged to prevent the Donald Trump victory, were not only waged on a national/Presidential level. God was/is very much involved in the Trump conflict, and I think that conflict is a representation of a universal/celestial one. Whether we believe in God or not, we are in it. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (William Shakespeare / Hamlet Act 1. Scene V) And so I think that on many levels and in many areas of life, there will be breakthroughs & releases into more freedom & more fulness of well-being. Maybe, at first, just in small things. Look for them…
In ushering in the Trump Presidency, God in Christ broke a mighty stronghold. It goes far beyond what we can see.
