David vs. Goliath was an easy victory because of who really had the power

The last couple of days as I have prayed and sat before the Lord and thought much about the election, the story of David and Goliath came to my mind continually and that David did not sit around and figure out his odds of winning the fight against Goliath, he Knew who God was and he proclaimed who God was, and just went to the fight. I have also thought of the Story of Jehosaphat who cried out to God and God told him to go to battle and the victory would be his. So Jehosephat sent out the singers in front singing praise to God and they won... and so many other stories in the Bible where the extremely overpowered underdog won over the confident prideful enemy because God showed up.

Starting yesterday, I felt we as Christians need to continue to fight the battle in the spiritual realm for those who have not yet made up their decision and for those who maybe have, yet could be persuaded, that they would see the truth of the two candidates and the consequences for our future before they went into the voting booth.

We then need to praise God for who He is and what He can do. God has put such a passion in my heart for this election and that He wants to bring us victory, we just have to cry out to Him and seek Him and praise Him for who He is and that He put the stars in the sky, He can put someone who honors His name and protects His people in the White House. I believe this is our battle to lose, and I believe the battle is already won if we would not lose heart and keep going to the One who can fight the real battle going on in the spiritual realm.
