We Have the High Ground (Post Election)
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty” (2 Cor 3:17). On a cold, damp Sunday before the Presidential Election, at the White House Ellipse during an early 3 to 5am set, this “liberty” theme took hold of us—a little cross-generational band of worshipers. Some sensed that a portal was”seared”opened there by the 40+days of 24/7 (David’sTent–YWAM). All we know is that together we felt the joyful reality of “Liberty” in Christ—transcending events past, present or future…
Regardless of election outcomes or viewpoints, the Nation as we know it has changed and so has its President. We do not have the same man of 4 years ago. And as for the country’s future direction, it continues to rest in the hands of the praying church: “If My People…” (2 Chr 7:14). Like the passengers and crew on the hijacked Flight 93–looking for answers and eventually finding their spiritual authority–so we must together rediscover what we already have in Christ. “Wherever two or more are gathered…Let the high praises of God be in their mouth…Out of the mouth of babes…a bulwark of strength (praise) is established…Declaring to the dark forces the manifold wisdom of Christ…Being strong in the Lord…for our battle is not against flesh and blood…and they overcame…by the Blood of the Lamb…Our Father in Heaven…give us this day…and deliver us from evil.”
Like in that 3 to 5am set in front of the White House, as in all our prayer gatherings, when we look up and go vertical together, we find our spiritual authority by coming to His Throne of Grace in time of Need! And when we pray together, He comes with true liberty and authority. Anywhere on this hijacked planet, we (together) can look up—and instantly we have the high ground!
