Jesus spoke in John 16:33 and declared:
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In this world you will have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
As the body of Christ goes, so the nation goes. Christians determine which way the nation goes. The reason this is true is that God does nothing in the earth unless His children ask Him. When we ask Him in Jesus’ Name, He said He will do it. When Jesus made this statement He was talking to His disciples-that is anyone who is a follower of Jesus. Hence, as Christians act on the word of God by praying fervently for our nation, the hand of God will move on our behalf and bring our nation to victory. As the body of Christ goes, so the nation goes.
Staying in prayer keeps you in faith. As long as you speak the word of God in prayer, faith comes, and fear is far from you. Jesus told his disciples; pray that God’s will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. And so that’s what we must pray.
Psalm 27:1 from the Message Bible says, “Light, space, zest, that’s God. So with Him on my side I am fearless; afraid of no one and nothing.” And that’s the way we’ve got to be, afraid of no one and nothing. Don’t let fear govern your life. Refuse to allow the enemy to dictate whether or not you’ll fly and where you will go. You do the dictating, because greater is the anointing that is in you than the devil that’s in the world.
Now declare what the word says. We are not going to win the war, we’ve won the war. We will not let the enemy make us forget what God’s word has already told us. Jesus said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome.” And so, we live with the faith that we have overcome!
