As Christians, we may or may not like the outcome of the election. We do however have a responsibility that maybe we will not take so lightly now. With the world in so much turmoil, we need to learn to come into agreement with the Holy Spirit and allow him to show us his will and how that we should pray.
I am reminded of these scriptures:
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
We are not fighting people; we are in a battle with the enemy. Unless we go into the spirit realm with the Holy Spirit, we are not going to fight effectively. We know the enemy is behind all the problems, and man is effected by him only because we have not learned or are unwilling to fight a spiritual battle with spiritual weapons.
For too long we have been fighting with carnal weapons and they have little effect on a spiritual foe. Maybe now we will have a wake-up call and start battling in the spirit. God has given to us authority by His Spirit to deal with the spiritual forces. No matter who became president, the same problems would exist. We must push back the enemy that would influence their mind and the decisions that they will make. Godís Word says:
Ps 33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
Pr 19:21 There are many devices in a manís heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
Is anything too hard for the Lord? Isnít everything possible if we would just believe?
Jer 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
Mt 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Mr 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Maybe we need to just start believing the Lord and become intimate with the Holy Spirit and walk in agreement with what he instructs us. It is time that we take up our weapons of war and pray in the spirit and do battle with the enemy, and possess our land for the Lord. We can sit back and complain or criticize, or we can pray for those in authority over us. We need to quit talking about it, and pray instead. The choice is ours.
