Taking A Stand
” How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked or take the path of sinners or join a group of mockers! Instead his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night.Psalms 1:1-2 HCSB
Dear ladies, I come before you with a heavy heart. Most of you know I am a paraprofessional – a teaching assistant – at a public school in my city, and unfortunately because of the wickedness going on in our government and those who govern our states there are mandates trying to be imposed upon us in the education system. I was just informed if I don’t give up my right to say no to being vaccinated and become subject to testing each week come the end of September I will be terminated. Because of this, I wanted to come on here and share what the Lord has been putting on my heart. Women if there were ever a time to stand up, it is now! If ever there was an Esther moment where we need to speak out, it is now! Just as Esther, if fear of her life, had to go against the grain and plead for her people, we are being thrust into a similar position as American citizens. What I mean is, we live in a country that says we are free to choose to take medicine and get vaccines, to share our opinion regardless if it is popular or not, and to worship God without being put in prison. However, there are those who want to take this from us, and tell us how we should treat our bodies, what we should believe, etc. THIS ISN’T RIGHT, NOR IS IT BIBLICAL!!!! God has given us a voice just as He had given Esther a voice during a time of great distress, and I pose the same question her uncle Mordecai asked her back then, ” Who knows but that you have come…for such a time as this?”
FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
We may look all around us and not even recognize the world we live in or like what we see, but ladies we are living in a crucial age. God has equipped us to speak out for what is right and what He has declared in the Word. We also need to do so in love, not condemning anyone but convicting sin. Regardless of what you believe about the vaccine, you need to seek God’s truth for yourself and look up the evidence regarding what is going on. If God tells you to still get the vaccine after you have researched everything, then you need to obey God and not become a bully who shames others for what they believe God has told them to do. I would say the same for those who choose not to get the shot(s). I for one have refused to get the vaccine because I don’t have peace about it, yet I will not succumb to shaming and guilting others because they don’t agree with me. It doesn’t matter what facts and data I show you, if you believe deep in your spirit the Lord has told you to either get or not get the vaccine and all the other shots that are to come, you need to obey the Lord and quit taking away the freedom to choose from others.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”Ephesians 6:12 NIV
Ladies, this scripture has never been more true than it is right now. There is so much evil in this world, and we must remember that our fight isn’t against other women, our husbands, or even this crooked government trying to impose their communistic ways upon us. Our fight is against Satan and his dark dominion of demons and spirits who are bringing division and hatred to our world. He would love nothing more than for us to waste our energy in fighting each other than going into spiritual battle with him and praying against the demonic strongholds in this country and around the world. Regardless of what the media wants you to believe we are in a literal war. We are in a war with other countries, we are in a war with a deadly virus, and we are in a spiritual battle for our faith and the souls of every human on this planet! Ladies, I urge you to begin getting on your knees and seeking the Lord regarding what is happening in our nation and around the world. Like me, you may want things to just “go back to normal” or run and hide, but God is saying, “NO MORE!” We have a right, and we are required to take a stand against the forces of evil that is currently present in our world. I’ve been wrestling with what is going on and what the Lord requires of me. I used to be one who dealt with and allowed anxiety to control me. No more! I can’t waste another day, let alone another minute worrying because there are people spiritually and physically out here dying.
STAND FIRM AND FIGHT WELL
If you are saddened by what is going on around you, then I encourage you to join me in prayer. I am going to start praying every morning before I go to work on behalf of my city, state, nation, and the world. I ask that you set an alarm for 5 AM and pray. It doesn’t have to be long, it can be something as simple as asking God to bring healing and justice to our country and the world. Ask Him to protect His people and surround us with His holy angels. However, I also encourage you to ask God what part you are to take in all this. Maybe it is to just pray and bind up the spiritual forces of darkness in our world. Maybe God is asking you to be a voice in your schools, cities, states, and country. Whatever God is asking of you, don’t back down. If God ask you to make a stand He will be right there with you protecting and guiding your footsteps. Don’t allow fear to hold you back from being used for God. Now is the time ladies, and you are exactly where God wants you.
I hope this encouraged you, and I would love to know in the comments where you will be praying from, or what God has been calling you to do during this pivotal time in history.
May God bless you and keep you and give you His peace!
