4th Day of 40

Today, Friday, October 30, 2020, is 4 days from the November 3, 2020, Election Day in the United States. I notice a growing sense these last days leading up to Election Day of people wondering what it is going to be like on November 4th and beyond. In a personal conversation I heard someone boil it down to: “Either way it goes, there is going to be an intense public reaction.” “EITHER WAY THE ELECTION GOES” is an important thing for us to consider. Today, Friday, October 30, 2020 lets be “Watchmen of Prayer” just like the ancient “Watchmen” who stood to help fortify they ancient city-states from their enemies–let’s look to the horizon and beyond of 4 days from now and pray in terms of “EITHER WAY THE ELECTION GOES.” Let’s set our prayer alarms for today at 9 AM; NOON; 3 PM; 6 PM. Start off by praying for repentance of sins personally and nationally, then express thankfulness to God for His protection and blessing on our lives. Next, let’s pray that people every where can look beyond THIS election–(OR ANY ELECTION) to understand the greater lessons God is teaching us in and through the circumstances of our lives. CONSIDER:1. God is still the Creator of the Universe no matter who thinks they are in charge on earth. 2. God is still the Creator of the Universe no matter who (we elect to be in charge). 3. God is still the Creator of the Universe and is ultimately the one who puts people in charge on earth. 4. God is still the Creator of the Universe and my responsibility is two things: First–I do my part as a citizen, like vote. Second–I dutifully pray and lift up to God the person or people who God puts in charge.5. God is still the Creator of the Universe and uses ALL THINGS for His good. NOTHING IS WASTED. What we see in God raising Jesus from the dead is HIs ability to take something dead and make it alive, hence, anything ugly He can make beautiful. No matter the situation–good or bad–God is still the Creator. 6. God is still the Creator of the Universe. I am just a “steward” (in this 40 days leading up to the election, I am calling it a “Watchmen”) in God’s creation. He is the Creator, we are the creation. STAY IN YOUR LANE! 7. God is still the Creator of the Universe. Don’t get so caught up in the drama of it all! Don’t succumb to the pattern of this world. Don’t be a friend to the devices of the enemy or the attitudes of the flesh. There are so many who believe one man is the savior and the other is the devil. Remember always “our struggle is NOT against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers.” You can’t PUT a name and face on your enemy! Don’t let the environment we are in, pull you into its mold. When you pray during the 4 watches today: DON’T REMIND GOD HE IS THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, BECAUSE HE ALREADY KNOWS IT. Ask God to keep this truth deep in your heart and mind, and then ask God to keep this truth deep in the heart and mind of others. If we all pray together in this way, it will make a difference–a HUGE difference.God Bless and Much Love, Marc & Marceil
