God endorses Trump for president . . .
For decades the evangelical community has strategized to the hilt to affect culture through elections. Yet, in my opinion, we've missed what the Spirit has been trying to say for quite some time. Again, I'm all for working hard in elections, but I believe the Spirit is speaking and we should listen. So while sitting in the Trump meeting I bowed my head and quietly prayed, "Lord, what are you saying here? What do you want to hear from us?"
I instantly felt the whisper of the Spirit to read Psalm 106 as a message for this group of leaders:
(bible verses follow)
I believe the distress that has come upon us in this nation is meant to generate in the Church a genuine cry of repentancea true spiritual revival. We've filled our land from sea to shining sea with the innocent blood of the unborn, and we're prostrating ourselves before idols of every kind. As a result, leaders that hate us, and everything about us, rule over us.
Spiritually speaking, the Lord healed the brokenness of the nation when His people cried out to Him. And until we get to this point as Evangelicals in America, no amount of strategy around Trump, or any other leader, is going to fix it. The distress and darkness is going to continue.
Interestingly, after Trump spoke we listened to a panel of leaders from across various spheres of influence give their thoughts, and the common theme was how we have to stand against the horrific leaders we have in our nation, especially Hillary. I couldn't help but re-read Psalm 106, realizing that a spiritual cry of repentance is needed long before a strategic call to Republicans.
