The people of God are tired. Weary from the unceasing barrage of polls, pundits, politicians, and prophets. Every newscast, instead of delivering the news, just has people screaming at each other. Each evening we are treated to scenes of burning buildings and rioters attacking cities while police are ordered to stand down.

The virus-induced isolation exacerbates an already horrible situation. There is a special toll on the people of God who are pressing into the Spirit. They feel the brunt of unceasing calls to pray, vote, speak out, and pray again. And even more.

The child of God is hit from two sides. There’s the ever-increasing urgency of preachers and prophets and their calls to action on behalf of Trump. At the same time, our demonic news media pours out gloom and doom about Donald Trump’s chances in November.

Not only are the media, universities, Hollywood, and crazed Democrat leaders against him, it seems that circumstances are pitted against him, also. The virus makes his rallies nearly impossible. The Democrat’s dirty trick of keeping Biden in his basement until Election Day is infuriating and confirms that even the DNC believes Biden’s mental capacity is diminishing.

That is the very battle fatigue which was setting in on me, as well. I am asked every day to give an interview. I myself am interviewing people. I am furiously busy encouraging leaders behind the scenes. I am daily in prayer and then I turn to my prodigious pile of homework. I start with the Word of God and then move on to some of the outlets I trust, in order to get a factual picture from the frontlines. All of it ends with more prayer, as I get to work, boiling it all down to what I should write to you.

I thought…if I’m tired, how tired are you? Fatigue is our underrated enemy. Vince Lombardi said, “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.” It was as I reflected on our common fatigue, that the question of whether or not Donald Trump is going to win in November came into perspective. And it hit me—we can’t keep raising the call to action without a much-needed balance. Let me explain.

One of the most dangerous things you can do is carry a sense of responsibility for something over which you have no control. Yes, I will continue to write and chastise the sleeping church, but I dare not drain the Army of God. To that end, I feel I must answer the question of Trump’s reelection.

I needed God to infuse my spirit with discernment, wisdom, and power. I found exactly what I needed in these verses:

“Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]” (Ephesians 6:13 AMP)

We are in that evil day. And, after all the calls to action, this is what must dominate our spirit: We put on the entire armor of God. We must do everything God tells us to do—and having done everything, we are to stand—just, stand. God must take it from there.

America’s fate must be firmly placed in the hands of God. After Daniel repented on behalf of all of Israel, he then had to leave it there. Paul wrote to the Philippians from prison, and then had to leave it there. And, finally, even Jesus had to say, “Father, into Your hands, I commit my spirit.”

Then I remembered a night nearly 4 years ago. A night I still recall with dread. It looked like a Hillary Clinton presidency was inevitable. Out of sheer duty, I watched what I believed would be an unfolding nightmare. Many of you remember that night. There was that perceivable moment when the first glimmer of a miracle began to unfold. Then that glorious moment when looks of dismay crept across the faces at CNN and MSNBC. What began as a trickle, began to grow into a river. It was the middle of the night when we realized America had been saved by God’s mercy, and that He had honored our hard work.

As we are working for another victorious outcome in November, I am reminded of these verses in 1 Corinthians 3:6-7:

“I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then, neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.”

So, to answer the question: After we have done everything God has told us to do, then we must be willing to stand: “Stand still, and behold the salvation of the Lord!”








P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

The War Chest Collection: three powerful books by Mario Murillo for only $27. This amazing offer includes free shipping and a signed copy of Vessels of Fire and Glory. The war chest is an army’s first order for victory. The doors will soon open for tent crusades and we must replenish our war chest. This is a true win-win situation. Not only will you get three excellent books for only $27 but your money will go toward winning souls.

  1. THANK YOU for this message. Yes, exactly where I am at. Yes, believing, praying, weary, but firmly trusting in the Sovereign LORD of the universe, I am standing! Praying! Believing! Trusting!

  2. It’s almost like, the remnant has been on the front lines, become weary; those who are awaking are stepping in, we r going to the back lines for R&R to regain our Strength, will be back to full force.
    Thank You So much for the Word today! It’s exactly what I’ve been feeling these last few days. WE ARE TO STAND ON THE WORD

  3. Soldiers cannot just go from battle to battle. We did that in WW2, just replacing those who died. Everyone was left in exhaustion. Even towards the end of the war FDR was concerned that the American people were exhausted. Thus the importance of the photos from Iwo Jima.

    As someone with 30 years of military service I understand that troops have to be able to see a goal. If they see even a march as unending, as opposed to knowing where the goal is, they fatigue sooner. No matter how strong we are, we all have a breaking point.

    It is not that we need to win in November. We need to be able to see the left totally crushed and defeated. This has been an ongoing battle since 2015 starting with Ferguson. The left in that year had a new “crisis” every six weeks. They are repeating the same pattern this year. The next crisis will hit in early September.

    We do not need just to win elections. We need the left to be crushed. That means Trump winning 70% of the vote. It means a super majority in both houses of congress. Same thru the states. What is really needed is an incredible spiritual revolution that brings much of the left, along with the rest of America, back to GOD. The left cannot ever be allowed success ever again.

    1. Loved your reply to Mario’s post. My dad found in WW2 . Having the goal to stop Hitler and save the free world was first and foremost. This war against the left is real and like you said we need to see a crushing victory in November!

    2. Mario you have described exactly how we feel!
      Greg I could not agree more. That is exactly word for word how I feel about the situation!!!

      Philippians 3:12-14
      Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I PRESS ON to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I PRESS ON toward the GOAL for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

    3. Gideon’s 300 were so mighty in battle that even though they were faint, they just kept on pursuing. We are in a marathon race, not a 200 meter dash.

  4. Thank you for your honesty and for being an unbending voice of truth. The church has needed the stern prodding to awaken us from our complacency and to challenge us to live up to our identity. It is also true that often we assume responsibility that we were never designed to carry. The frenzy of emotion that bombards us from the news and from our own internal sense of urgency can become overwhelming. It is good to be reminded that God is a faithful partner. Our prayers are not falling on the deaf ears of an uncaring Father. While it is our obedience that creates a pathway for His power to be demonstrated, our best efforts pale in comparison to His ways. Today we pray, we speak, we vote, we fight for truth and we trust that God can do the rest.

  5. Thank you for all your spiritual encouragement, this truly is the most critical time in our nation, never before has so many things hit this nation at once, we truly need to keep our eyes focused on the cross of Jesus Christ, not to be weary or to give up, but to continue to pray trust believe draw daily from from grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and having done all that we can do just stand..

  6. I have been following your messages & interviews. You are right on with this message– we needed this encouragement. Thank you for everything you are doing for the body of Christ. May you be refreshed in the battle. God bless & keep you in all your ways. Carolyn, Milford CT

  7. You are Awesome!
    I pray for you. I feel your heart and soul for America. I stand in
    Agreement with you to Stand still. Be blessed. Don”t stop.

  8. I remember that night. I kept thinking, he is taking forever to get across that stage to the podium. Now I think about it, and I think he was showing us his, seemingly, unending patience. He was in no hurry. I also noticed how he gave everyone their due applauding each time they stepped on the stage.

    I realize I was being impatient. I hadn’t voted for him. I had voted for a Christian, but I sure was happy he won over Hillary.

    I was reading your message and thought, the verses for this, that would be perfect were exactly what you shared. You were point on.

    We do have to stand in this evil day, and when we’re tired, stand some more. Father will hold us up. We are the victorers.

  9. God bless you Mario for giving us God’s words to encourage us in this fight against evil. Each morning I read your message. This is where I get encouraged to start my day, then I read scripture.

    Although you are tired too, it means a lot that you stand each day and help us through God’s words.

    Thank you.

  10. Thank you Mario for speaking out against evil in our land.

    Still standing for what the Lord can do for America. The fate of our country as we know is in your hands dear Lord, we are praying that you would do a miracle for our America in 2020, as this also affects the entire world. I’m not going to give up believing for our America no matter what Lord you still reign!
    I will trust in you!

  11. PTL Mario, I needed your msg today. You described circumstancs xactly! Thank you and God bless. I am standing . Be blessed. Elizabeth

  12. God has given His children a weapon in the form of a VOTE! May they take that weapon and use it for the kingdom of God! They need to put down every petty reason for not voting or not voting for President Trump! I will not stand before Father knowing I could Have fought for the lost this way!!! Use the mighty weapon in your hand!

  13. A lot has been accomplished since 2016. I feel like there is still much unfinished business for a few more years. I pray the Lord continue preserving this nation that the Gospel be not hindered in being shared. The spirit of antichrist is opposing the Church, President Trump and those who love freedom. May God bruise that spirit greatly and lift up His Son for all of humanity to behold His glory and great sacrifice.

  14. Yes, we must not wilt. We must not waver. We must not give up! But, beating yourself over the head when you have done everything you could do and wishing you could do more doesn’t help. You are not Oskar Schindler. You do what you can and leave the rest to God. “Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.” – Ephesians 6:13

    1. Amen!
      I will pray fervently as I believe that’s the only weapon within my reach. It’s disappointing to see how our freedom is being stepped on .But there is hope in Jesus!
      I’m in complete awe for our President’s resilience , for always working for our rights and freedom . I’m an immigrant and worked really hard for what I have become ! ( a Filipino nurse).
      I have deep faith that the Lord will bless our president with another 4 years!

  15. Mario: In my devotions this morning I read a quote from Hugh Cowan: Our Strength is shown in the things we stand for; our weaknesses are shown in the things we fall for. This, your message today, is exactly what I (we) needed. A day does not go by that my heart hurts, my eyes well up with tears and I groan for lack of words to pray. Thank you for this lift to my spirit.

  16. Thank you for reminding me that our hope is in our Lord Jesus Christ. We do our part and trust Him to do the rest. He is always faithful!!! Thank you, Thank you!!?

  17. Thank you Mario. I keep reminding myself that, although I am to pray and to stand, the battle is the Lord’s (2 Chron 20:15).

  18. It is going to be wearying to listen to the constant barrage of praise from the Left of their, “Dynamic Duo”, over the next couple of months, and the constant media coverage of them. I just read a synopsis of the difference between the coverage of Sarah Palin and the coverage of Kamala Harris, and it’s only been one day. Sarah Palin was torn to pieces in the media within a few days of McCain calling her. After she gave her first speech, the media was terrified of her. They had to destroy her if their Leftist darlings were to have a chance. Two people in McCain’s campaign joined in the her destruction. They now work for CNN, I believe it is. That’s taking the term, “Turncoat”, to a whole new level. And McCain, toward the end, instead of blaming them for his failure to win, blamed Palin. Publicly. Most of us didn’t vote for him anyway, we were voting for Sarah. Kamala and Joe are perfect for each other. Neither one has a moral core or a moral code to live by. They will be and say whatever their leftist puppet masters tell them to. AOC will be the brains, LOL, behind their administration. Fear not, Little Flock, they are not going to win. It will be Trump by a landslide. That’s what I have now come to believe. But look out for 2024. Kamala will be president then. We have four years to bring in the Harvest.

  19. I bear witness with this Mario, I have felt the same thing in my spirit. When you rely on the Holy Spirit you move when he says move and you stand when he says stand. When we have fought the good fight of faith been obedient to unction of the Holy Spirit having done all that was required, WE Stand! To do otherwise would be an act of disobedience or works of the flesh. Thank you for being a faithful voice!

  20. Thanks. That’s all we can do. Trust in God being with us whatever the results of the election may be.

  21. Thank you for that encouraging word! I so appreciate your daily words and Sunday Night Church with Robby- they are a life line! Father bless your faithful servant with Your joy filled strength, wisdom and revelation in Jesus Name!

  22. Has been prophesied Trump will win a second term. Million believers are praying. God’s power is stronger than Political power. Revival is breaking out…..that is our answer.

  23. Brother Mario, This is great advice. I have been suffering fatigue I just thought it was part of my fibromyalgia battle that has lasted for 36 years. But upon putting on the full armor of God, I felt a lot of the fatigue vanish. Thanks for your blog! Love in Jesus California Dawn


  24. America will be saved by the Christian Church. Not the backslid, divided, lukewarm church that we see, but the Mighty Army God is raising up; the Special Forces to lead in a NATIONAL SPIRITUAL AWAKENING. We will TAKE BACK AMERICA. Say Yes to God when He calls you to WAR.

  25. Thanks for the encouraging words! I truly am weary of all the negative news media-I would not even listen but my husband has it on to “see what lies they are telling today” but he also listens to the truth and positive reports via youtube. And I get email after email asking for donations to this and that for Pres Trump. I finally unsubscribed as we are both retired and on SS now. I have given more than ever before and we are done but they keep pushing!! And one has NO way to unsubscribe! Again thanks for the great Words from the Lord in the Bible to encourage us all! Believing for a bigger victory this time!! Jo Norton

  26. Just my 2 cents worth. The true Body of Christ, Stand in the Gappers, Hedge Builders, Intercessors, and Esthers must pray. If Satan blinds the minds of unbelievers, hiding the glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ from them, then the Church must bind the spirits of blindness and take authority over spiritual blindness and darkness. We need to command satanic blindness to cease, and that the eyes of America’s unbelievers be bathed in the Light of the Holy Spirit, that they may see and comprehend the demonic forces that have taken over those on the left .

  27. Yes and Amen! I believe Donald J. Trump will cross the finish line with a huge win…We must see with the eye of faith the enemies of God defeated… And ourselves as overcomers with God at the finish line… A runner must always see himself or herself crossing the finish line. Lord give your church your heavenly perspective concerning this upcoming election. And to agree with and trust you to give us what we need…You are a good and faithful heavenly Father and we can trust you.

  28. Gary Durandt
    As an Australian I too pray and plead with the Lord that President Trump will win a second term. He is the leader of the free world and if the US destroys itself through a democrat president then the rest of the free world will also suffer.

  29. Yes I do believe President trump will win a 2nd term God is not finished with Him yet’ We are praying every week for his reelection
    Sue Heffley and others.

  30. Mario,
    You spelled it out quite clearly… the battle is tough, BUT God’s spirit in us is tougher. I am feeling drained and so much more as the physical and mental attacks has been fierce over my life in this period of intense intercession. There is a principle that God has impressed on my heart in my
    battles…When hell is breaking loose and the attacks are relentless, God’s work behind the scenes is most active. What ever we are experiencing, the opposite is true. Don’t align with hell’s agenda of what we see and feel………. Does this mean that we get complacent in prayer and declarations? NO!! We step it up even if we aren’t able to do alot at the time. Consistent prayer, consistent declarations, from His Word are imperative, but choose to align with God’s work and Word. He’s sounding the clarion call to His church to NOT grow weary in a time such as this… He is the one who IS our strength when we call out to HIm for strength, as much as needed. WE will reap in due season, if WE FAINT NOT. Use one of the greatest weapons He has given us… our prayer language! Keep it up fellow believers and don’t lose heart.

  31. Somehow I have not been receiving these daily posts for at least the past month and I cannot find where to sign up again
