Crazy times call for some crazy faith. Impossible odds call for divine intervention. For those who are still contending for our president to serve another four years and for miraculous intervention in overturning the enemy’s plans for our nation, our hopes seem to diminish more and more by the day. Yesterday, as I was contending in prayer, the Lord whispered in my ear, “IT’S TIME FOR SOME CRAZY FAITH!”
Noah was CRAZY when he built the ark, telling the people of the coming flood. The fact was – it had never even rained before! Not only was this guy a nut job for building a boat, the suggestion of a so-called flood was…. CRAZY!
Moses was CRAZY to raise his rod above the waters. The people had obviously forgotten all the miracles just performed in Egypt. Now they were trapped at the sea’s edge with their lives on the line, and their lunatic leader was holding up his staff, expecting for dry ground to appear! CRAZY!
Abraham was CRAZY to cling to the hope of a son when his body was beyond human ability to do so. Not only was this physically impossible, even his wife said to “Give it up, already!” And yet he refused to give up hope. CRAZY!
God seems to have this habit of suggesting crazy things that have never happened before. And we seem to have the habit of quickly reducing Him to our previous experience and human logic. O, how quickly we dismiss anything beyond our current understanding and probability of success. As “believers,” I think we’ve forgotten what that even means. Do we actually believe He’s a supernatural being who can do anything He wants?
In spite of all the gloom and doom reports, the clock that’s clicking ever closer to our demise as a free nation, and people of faith dropping like flies – I still cling to a crazy faith. Why? Because I CANNOT DENY everything He’s already spoken and already promised through supernatural means. If we would take a minute to review all the dreams, visions, and words that have been collected for months, and even years, concerning this point in history, we would see a MOUND OF EVIDENCE of what God has CONSISTENTLY spoken about His promise of victory.
Just last night, I read through more emails sent to me by random folks all around the globe. Many of them contained dreams, visions, impressions, and words they had “unexpectedly” received from the Lord. Many of them have never had a dream or vision before. Some aren’t even Americans. And YET – they all say THE SAME THING. The breakthrough for this nation, the inauguration of President Trump to another 4 years, and the enemies of God being defeated – consistently revealed by His Spirit. How do we explain it with our natural mind? It’s CRAZY.
Folks, we have never been this way before. We are most definitely out of our league! And yet, if you are one who chooses to be crazy enough – welcome to Gideon’s Army of 300. It seems we are being whittled down to but a handful of crazy people of faith who refuse to quit or give up hope. God seems to have another habit of reducing numbers to make a point. He’s determined to make the odds of victory so stacked against us that we have no other option but to trust a miraculous – and supernatural – outcome.
It’ time for a crazy faith. Do you dare?
Only hold fast what you have until I come. The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. (Revelation 2:25-27)
