When Abigail saw David, she hurried & dismounted from her donkey and fell on her face before David...she fell at his feet... 1 Sam.24v.23
In this amazing moment for our nation, it is going to take Christians willing to throw themselves at the feet of Jesus in intercession. Abigail was interceding after her husband, Nabal's, foolish decision to reject David's request for help for his army. We, in turn, are being called to intercede for some of the unwise decisions and choices our country is making. I think we need a travel ban to the virus-affected countries. But I will have to get my two hundred loaves of the Word of God, my two jugs of the wine of the Spirit, my five sheep of the Blood sacrifice of Praise, more grain of the Word and sweeten it all with raisins and figs. In other words, a Praise Party in His Presence. Even though I want to scream, "We need a travel ban now," I instead get to scream out Praises to Everlasting God, the Creator of the Ends of the Earth. He wants me to laugh with Him as He sits in the heavens and rules and overrules humanity's feeble attempts to run the world their way.
In our Bible reading from the Old Testament, after the intercessory intervention. the foolish man dies and the King gets the girl. But in the New Testament of our day, our intercession changes the world and presents the foolish man with an invitation to change and become "new."
FATHER: We cry: You hear! (The righteous cry and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles . Ps. 34v.17
