Yet another Tuesday has arrived with very difficult news in the headlines: the incomprehensible tragedy in Nashville. There is much that I want to unpack about this senseless act of violence on tonight’s program with my guests Lance Wallnau and Hank Kunneman as well as two first-time guests: Sean Spicer and Gary Chapman.
But for right now I want to focus on a primary tactic of the enemy to which we must not succumb: fear. When horrific events such as these occur, it becomes a door for insidious fear to invade our thoughts and minds. It is critical that we understand the protections available to us. As Gloria Copeland writes in this article, “Your Covenant of Protection”:
When we look at things in the natural realm, it may seem like a scary time to live. But in the supernatural realm, it’s the most powerful time to live. We have a place of protection in God that will keep us completely safe, regardless of what is happening in the world around us.
It’s Him we must depend upon. And to have confidence—to have faith—in His ability to keep us, we must know what His Word says about our safety and protection well enough to act on it.
I encourage you to download the entire article and let it feed your faith during this time.
In response to yesterday’s events in Nashville, I want to invite you to pray in agreement with us:
Heavenly Father, we boldly approach Your throne of grace today in the Name of Jesus to obtain mercy and grace to help in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16). We stand together and boldly declare that we desperately need You in our nation, in our lives, and in the lives of our children and grandchildren. We thank You, Lord, that You go before us, You’re with us, and You never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:8). You’re always ready to help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1).
We petition You today on behalf of the Covenant School victims’ families, loved ones and first responders, and we ask for Your help. May they feel Your comforting presence. We pray for Your unfailing love to surround and fill them (Psalm 33:22). Please strengthen, help and uphold them (Isaiah 41:10). May they be strong in You and in Your mighty power during this difficult time. We put a hedge of protection around their thoughts, and pray for them to turn toward You and not away from You. As they call on You in truth, we thank You, Lord, that You will be near to them, and they will hear Your answer (Psalm 145:18, Jeremiah 33:3). Thank You for supplying all their needs during this time from Your glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). In the Name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
You can also spend time praying in the Holy Spirit, as the Spirit Himself intercedes for us when we don’t know what to pray (Romans 8:26).
How privileged we are to be able to gather together in Nashville in just over 40 days for Flashpoint LIVE. Let us take our stand in Tennessee together— for our nation, our families and our Lord!
