Evil unseen by our human eyes based on Daniel 10:11-13

Daniel 10:11 (TLB) And I heard his voice—“O Daniel, greatly beloved of God,” he said, “stand up and listen carefully to what I have to say to you, for God has sent me to you.” So I stood up, still trembling with fear. 12 Then he said, “Don’t be frightened, Daniel, for your request has been heard in heaven and was answered the very first day you began to fast before the Lord and pray for understanding; that very day I was sent here to meet you. 13 But for twenty-one days the mighty Evil Spirit[a] who overrules the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the top officers of the heavenly army, came to help me, so that I was able to break through these spirit rulers of Persia. 


These Scriptures confirm that the Lord honors our fasting and prayers, but do you live with awareness that there’s a spiritual battle waged in heaven by the devil and his evil-doers that impacts what happens on earth?  (Ephesians 6:12; Rev 12:7-9) God sent the angel Gabriel to Daniel, but he was blocked by spiritual evil to the point that God’s chief archangel, Michael, was dispatched to intervene.
Thankfully, the devil’s fallen angels are limited by God in what they can do (Job 1:12, 2:6). So while the evil spirit could block the angel who was sent to help Daniel, it could not prevent God’s plan from unfolding.
 We must be on guard at all times by putting on the full spiritual armor available from our Lord (Ephesians 6:13-18). Don’t be na├»ve in spiritual matters; God calls us to become mature Christians (Hebrews 5:12-14) who can wage battles effectively as evil continues to lurch in the world, our country, outside our doors and inside our homes.

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…

America will never be normal

Nothing stops real love!

Romans 8:38-39 For I have every confidence that nothing—not death, life, heavenly messengers, dark spirits, the present, the future, spiritual powers, height, depth, nor any created thing—can come between us and the love of God revealed in the Anointed, Jesus our Lord. 

Feelings can lead us down torturous paths. Next time you face a daunting crisis whether it's in your mind or real --stop. 
Remember that nothing stops the love of Jesus. 
It's yours free! 
There's nothing you did to earn it! And it will not be withdrawn from you! 
 It's called GRACE!
