One more chance is a priceless blessing.

Today is Thanksgiving. We have a lot to thank God for. But there is one thing I thank God for above all else. I thank God we can still save our nation.

One more chance is a priceless blessing. I am begging you to embrace that blessing. Shake off the discouragement. Turn your eye away from all the sin, apathy, and heaviness of this hour. Turn it toward the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:2-4).

In an instant, David’s life went up in flames at Ziklag. While he and his men were gone, Amalekite raiders burned his village and kidnapped the women and children.

1 Samuel 30:6,8, “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And He answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

Another chance! That should be our greatest joy today.

We also can recover all. God gave David another chance. And that meant everything to him. It should mean everything to us. We have a national ‘Ziklag’.

In our Ziklag, courts are corrupt. Our inner cities are killing fields. Human life has never been this cheap, while everything else is so expensive.  Freedom of worship, decency, the rule of law, and civilization itself are on fire. But I know God has given us another chance.

Another chance! That should be our greatest joy today. God told David he would recover all. I believe God is saying that to you and to me, right now.

Do not dwell on the impossibility of that statement. Instead, listen to Nehemiah: …“Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses” (Nehemiah 4:14b). That is the news!

But I have even better news: God only needs a core to get the job done! 1 Samuel 14:6, “Let’s go across to the outpost of those pagans,” Jonathan said to his armor bearer. “Perhaps the Lord will help us, for nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win a battle whether He has many warriors or only a few!”

So what if there are only a few of us?

So what if there are only a few of us?

So what if much of the church is apathetic? It does not matter. Romans 3:3, “For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?”

So what if perversion is exalted and evil rulers threaten us? The only thing that matters is this victory cry: “If God be for us, who can be against us?”

The only thing that matters is what God is doing.

Wars, rumors of wars, convulsions of nature, apostasy in the church—none of that matters. The only thing that matters is what God is doing.

If God has rolled up His sleeves to do something new, why should we care about anything else? God is recruiting elite fighters—He will infuse them with awesome skills and powers.

I thank God for so many things. But today, I thank Him that we still have a chance to save America!

      The beautiful picture of hands holding the earth (included in this blog)are our hands, His body in Christ, taking our rightful place of having dominion over the earth and declaring on earth as it is in heaven daily. We speak with the authority over the whole earth peace and take back what belongs to us already because we reign from the courts of heaven. We reign as kings and priests and take back what the enemy believes is his. The cross is our signet ring and seal of authority. In Jesus’ Name

      • Virginia Drastata

        The hands!!! Remember the song? He’s got the whole world in His hands!!! Sing it loud and clear for “if God be for us who can be against us? ” All God’s word is filled with encouraging words. We stand strong with you Mario and thank God for your leadership walking by faith!!!!
        god bless you and all that walk with you.

    • Patty

      Back on 2020 I asked God to show me what was happening. He directed me to the scriptures on David and Ziglag. I was encouraged that He wants us to recover all the enemy has stolen. Been standing on that Word since then. We will not back down but fight for what God has given into our hands.

  17. Brian M Stowell

    Ezekiel 36:15-28 but in particular 22,23 have been on my heart for a year or more. When GOD moves upon America no man will get glory for her redemption.

    All glory and honor and power to Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb.

    Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

    We can Recover All with King 👑 Jesus

  19. Donna Leveron

    It is time to stop reading what has happened and read what is happening. We are in the end of the end times. “A time like no other” as told us by Jesus in Matthew 24:21-22. We have been forewarned by Jesus in Mark 13 and Luke 21 as well as Revelation.
    For these times we need wisdom, faith, and spiritual discernment. Our relationship with Jesus and Our Father must be strong and steadfast. This comes by reading and hearing the Word, praying in the Spirit, Jude 20, and spending time waiting upon the Lord, listening, sharpening our hearing, so that we know His voice and the voice of a stranger we will not follow, John 10:4-5. Be sober and vigilant, our enemy is roaming about seeking whom he may devour. False prophets are many, only knowing the Word of God will keep you on the straight and narrow. Endure to the end.

  20. Molly Jennings

    Praise the Lord, Amen.

    • Michael John Briglia

      Thank all who commented today. You have made my day truly thankful.

  21. Mario

    Thank you 🙏 for you!

  22. Michael MEDNICK

    Yes, Brother Mario you’re correct. Man doesn’t save ONLY Jesus saves (through us).


  23. Nick

    Wow! Considering how many times I’ve seen the wheels come of the wagon when a Scripture is overly spiritualized there was truly peace as I did ‘sense’ the connection between the US today and David’s Ziklag. Father show me mountain and may You be with me as I take it in Jesus’ amen.

  24. Carrie

    I had just been praying in this exact vain for my family, my heart is encouraged!
    It is not over!

  25. Jenean

    Thank the good Lord. I needed to hear this today! God is not finished with us yet!

  26. Roy Salander

    I thank God for his mercy and compassion. God has given us the greatest weapons of warfare that we can get, that is His weapons of prayer! Give God the praise and thanks!

  27. Darlene W

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving MMM.

  28. Rosie Braun

    Hallelujah and Amen! GOD is for us. There is No enemy that is big enough to stand against GOD and His army

  29. Carleen

    I stand with you, brother Mario!!! I have been praying for our nation every day for the past two years, and I am not going to stop. So count me in! I love Jesus and I love the USA!!

  30. Gregory Weaver

    God help me for I am yet lost! Jesus save my soul from destruction! Please pray for me ! Put me on the righteous path I pray thee!

    • Gail

      I agree Brother Mario!!!
      I was saying the same thing the other day in prayer. I said to God if You, O God gave David and his mighty men victory over the enemy, then You will give us the victory over this evil that runs rampant through our nation. This administration will fall and the just shall rise to take over.
      All glory be to God.
