In prayer I saw what looked like a large tea kettle over a fire. It was boiling and steaming. A hand that somehow represented a spirit that is against all Christ represents picked it up and proceeded to pour it upon those who give themselves to the purposes of God. But before it could be tilted and begin to pour, it was turned back upon the one pouring and the boiling water poured on him. (Gen.50:20) There are entities that are working in league with darkness and are in direct opposition to everything Christ and His Word represent. They do not just lift their voices and votes on occasion, they are actively intending evil. But I declare that the hand of God is mightier than the hand of evil intent. Isa.14:27 “For the LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it?… His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back ?”
“Your throne is established from of old. You are from everlasting.” (Ps.93:2) Before any sons of Belial (“reckless, lawlessness”) planned or implemented their shenanigans, God was already on His throne. Before any elements came together to form a disaster, He was. Before Abraham, Jesus is “I Am.” (Jn.8:58) So, as Melissa sings, “He stands above it all.” And we run to the Rock that is higher than us. “For no matter where I am, even when I’m far from home, I will cry out to you for a father’s help. When I’m feeble and overwhelmed by life, guide me into your glory, where I am safe and sheltered.” (Ps.61:2, TPT)
We pray that your mighty hand, O Lord, might stop the plans and machinations of those individuals and entities that have designs upon the deterioration of the United States of America, its family units, its morals/values and its economy. I declare that the all-powerful Hand of Holy God that intervened for the Israel of old and restored her to victory in her Lord God, is the same Hand that is active in this nation to the tearing down of strongholds and the raising of the standard of righteous victory, transforming lives to the glory of our Redeemer and Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I declare the frustration of unrighteousness, of destructiveness and of delusionary influences. “He frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise or anything of [lasting] worth.” (Job 5:12, Amp)
May you go out under the cover of the hand of God, the protection
of God and the favor of God that you may be in the right place at
the right time successfully accomplishing the purposes of God
for your advancement and the advancing of the Kingdom.
”Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God
[set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a
place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time,” (1Pe.5:6, Amp)

Word given at Saddle Creek Church: The 4:12 Center on 2-17-13:
Forget not your God. Forget not who He is. Forget not His greatness. Forget not what He has done and know that He is still working in the earth. He is still working in behalf of His people. For the Lord your God does not simply have a Hand, He has a Great Hand. And when He puts His Hand forth, that which He intends to stay will stay and not get around that Hand. For the Lord your God has, in recent months, stayed enemy attacks upon this your nation. The Lord your God has stayed attacks upon His people Israel. The Lord your God has moved behind the scenes that cannot be spoken of in public, cannot be aired on news broadcasts. But the Lord has stayed the enemy and has stayed his attempts to destroy the liberties of those who enjoy the liberty of speaking of this Christ, of taking His message to the four corners of the earth. The Lord has stayed things in your personal life in recent weeks that you are not aware of because I will not always announce to you overtly and in a dramatic way what I have done for you. Just know that I am your beneficent Father, my eye is upon the sparrow that falls, so how much more is my eye upon you? Not only is my eye upon you but when I see certain things I stretch forth my Hand and I stay the enemy. I have stayed the enemy even this week against your nation, against Israel and against your household. And in future, look to me and rejoice because I am the Great God with a Great Hand and I stay the enemy in your behalf.

Liberty, Adversaries and Cost
In 1776 the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. There was much sacrifice in reaching that momentous date forever etched in history. The colonists came dangerously close to losing on more than one occasion. There was a lack of weapons, training and basic supplies. The soldiers were up against disease as well as the well-trained British army and their desperate generals. George Washington not only had to be on alert against British tactics but also on alert for self-seeking traitors in his own army.
In spite of the seeming unbalance in the two opposing forces, what could only be called “the hand of God,” not only brought the scales back into balance but took them over in favor of the colonials. Just one example among others is that when Washington marched against Boston, the soldiers dug trenches with the help of a clear night. The next morning a British engineering officer reported that the progress of the colonials must have required 15,000 to 20,000 men, more than double the size of the present colonial army. Just as the battle was beginning the weather suddenly changed and a storm set in by noon with hail, sleet and a wind that “blew almost a hurricane.” General Howe decided not to attack and retreated from Boston. Washington and others gave the glory to God’s hand at work.
Although it has been noted that Washington was not a brilliant strategist and had shown indecisiveness at crucial moments, one writer said, “Washington never forgot what was at stake and never gave up.” George Washington credited the blessing of God as the reason he was able to endure. “He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my defense; I shall not be moved” (Ps 62:6)
Many Americans sense the threat against the liberties those Founding Fathers faithfully fought for. But we will not continue to realize them simply through political efforts. Without the intervening Hand of Almighty God and our desperate seeking of His precepts, those liberties remain eminently threatened. “I will walk at liberty and at ease, for I have sought and inquired for and desperately required Your precepts.” (Ps 119:45) I pray the Lord God will give us determination, not only to guard our civil liberties, but to seek His precepts so that we have a value system that will prompt us to, at least, basic stewardship (such as voting) in the preserving of what He gave us in this great nation.
