This is one of those words from Lori Suiter.

We have all heard the saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the oil," but I believe we have become a culture of squeaky wheels. I sensed the other morning in prayer that this is on the Lord's heart.
Flowing straight from the throne room of Heaven, I heard in my spirit, "The righteous wheels will get the oil." He is flipping the script! Instead of seeing those who are openly rewarded for being loudly critical and deceptive, we'll see God rewarding the quietly faithful, thankful and righteous.
The Squeaky Wheels
It is undeniable when you look around this world that the loudest voices seem to get the most attention. It seems some people believe that if you say something enough times or loud enough, it will somehow make what they are saying true. Yet, truth will always rise eventually.
Meanwhile, it seems the faithful – the ones who are living quietly with thankful hearts, living righteously and just trying to do their best in this thing called life – tend to get overlooked.
When we go out to a restaurant, how quick are we to compliment good service? How loud are we with our compliments? How loud are we with our support of what is good? Often we have unknowingly and unintentionally empowered the negative instead of the positive, BUT this can and will change.
A Look at Our Culture Today
Many schools claim to have in effect a zero tolerance for bullying, but many times there are parents who will say that it's the victim of the bullying that needs to change their behavior instead of the bully. Many times the victims have to find other ways of transportation to school if the bus is the problem, or, maybe even a different school if the school is the problem. This should not be. It's the bully who should be disciplined.
Even in movies and TV shows right now it seems the villains are glorified. I see many movies intended to make you feel sympathy for the villain and empathy for the bully. The message is that the "bad guy" is really not that bad at all.
We see death and deception overpowering life and truth in many shows and movies. We have music and shows where the way we "shouldn't act" is glorified. Where are the shows full of hope that end with you feeling good and encouraged? Where did the shows that reinforced morals and the righteous way of living go? We are crying out for a return of the "good guy"!
Now, adding the fact that discernment is vitally necessary right now to truly determine what is good or bad, I believe God is in the process of showing the truth that NOT all that glitters is gold.
Ask the Holy Spirit about it all. Things are really being shaken right now, but it's a good shaking.
You Are What You "Eat"
It seems we are very much in a spiritual war. A war between good and evil, life and death. There used to be a saying, "Junk in, junk out." What this means is that we need to be careful about what we ingest through our eyes and ears, because we will start acting like what we "eat." I never realized back when I heard this just how truthful it was. We are told in the Bible what we are to be thinking about.
Philippians 4:8 (NIV), "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things."
The Return of the "Good Guy"
Recently I've been feeling so strongly that things are in the process of turning around. I sense that we are coming into a season of the return of the good guy; a return of God being seen as the ultimate "good guy." He is straightening crooked paths and He is also making streams in the desert.
As we kneel before Him crying out in repentance and praising His name, He will make all things new again. He will make the impossible possible. We will start to see answers to prayers we have prayed for, for years. We will see life in the most desolate areas of our lives and in our world. We will believe that a better future is possible.
He will restore this country's sense of childlike wonder, hope, and joy. There will be a great return of the golden rule of "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," instead of every person looking out for only themselves. Loving your neighbor will become a way of life.
God is in the process of dealing with the bullies and replacing the squeaky wheels! We will overcome evil with good as He taught us to do. Remember who is truly on the throne! It's time to have our eyes wide open. There is much we need to see and learn in the process. We are learning how to be wise as serpents but gentle as doves. No longer will the spirit of death reign over the entertainment industry. Life is displacing death in our country. Hope is displacing depression. Joy is displacing sorrow.
Romans 12:21 (NIV), "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
Matthew 10:16 (ESV), "Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves."
Be encouraged, righteous wheels! God is replacing the squeaky wheels with righteous wheels! Those who are silently faithful: you are seen and you are known by the only One who matters. You are known by the ultimate good Guy! He is more powerful than you understand. Trust Him. Stay faithful. Stay hopeful.
Remember Daniel in the lions den. The mouths of the lions will be closed! Pray unceasingly. Pray that whatever needs to be uncovered in this season is revealed. Decree life across our country. Look at this world through eyes of childlike wonder; speak love and life and watch our world change!
We are going from the government of death to the government of LIFE!
