Confound the Wise Through the Rains of Righteousness

by Janet Lynn Garcia

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness; Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together. I, the Lord, have created it. Isaiah: 45:8 (NKJV).


I never imagined winning tickets to the Presidential Inauguration of President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. I stood on the grassy areas in front of the nation’s capital. I asked God, “Why I had won the tickets” and He told me, “I was going on a prayer pilgrimage”. I was sent to be a prayer warrior. The morning of the inauguration we knew it was supposed to rain but I didn’t know how special it would be. It was before six o’clock we would get to our appropriate section in order to pass through security and make our way to the grass area. My attention was upon the clouds. There was a sunrise so beautiful over the adjacent building from the east. The sun was peaking but the clouds would soon cover us. It began to lightly rain on us. At no time during the entire event, did it downpour it was more like a misty and light rain. However, I knew this very scripture was on my heart and it was the focus of the day. The clouds continued to cover us and then the declaration came with the hands of a man swearing from his mothers Bible. He would swear this nation to be “great again.” Our interests would come first before others. This makes sense a selfless action to put aside name, great wealth, and compensation for the future of America. This would come from a man no one ever imagined would or could ever be Presidential material. I say continue to confound the wise Lord, “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty” 1st Corinthians 1:27 (NKJV).


The Lord was amongst millions of people near and far. We met fellow Americans over those few days from as far as Florida and Oregon. It was so encouraging to know so many of us were there for the same reason. What reason? The prayers of righteousness on the land. We continue to experience the shift and voices of retaliation would surface physically and spiritually.

Today, the clock continues to tick before the voting primaries. The righteous in the land know how important this is to continue to stand for righteousness on the foundations of why this nation even exists. I stand to cry out with others who have this same voice. We must not fall asleep at the wheel. The rains of righteousness poured out that day. I will never forget it. I witnessed the Lord’s hand come over this nation. He continues to set up His plan before us but He expects His people to continue to stand for righteousness and justice. His plan will prevail and we will not sleep nor slumber on our watchman towers. I’ve attached a video link as this should be shared with fervency. The video has some staggering statistics and even the children in the video have it right. The youth in our nation need this generation to step up and step out more than ever. The prayers of the righteous have availed much but it’s not over yet. Arise people of God. The true remnant, Arise and Shine!!! Arise, shine. “For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light. And kings to the brightness of your rising” Isaiah 60:1-2 (NKJV).
