Miracles That Propel us Out

(Kathy G.) I’m expecting miracles to usher in the new year, miracles that propel us out of layers of contradiction that stifle our circumstances and relationships and our daily lives. God is for us and He has the power to resurrect us out of opposition. It is time for old sieges to cease. It has begun.

KATHY GABLER brings an encouraging word in this 3min. audio file.
“He is putting gates in your fences.”

Upset Not Rule

When you CHOOSE LIFE you are choosing what you will agree with.  Your agreement is what opens doors in your life and the cocoon.  Your agreement aligns you with either a God-outcome or the plans of self or plans of others, or the plans of Hell . . . or possibly some combination of the last three!  For dv1954035example, if you’re caught up in an emotional web and surrounded by hurt feelings or offense or disappointment or despair, your soul is likely to choose to wallow in “UPSET.”  That choice is agreeing with current conditions, but your spirit calls for a vote, knowing nothing good comes out of coddling and rehearsing UPSET. There’s no ground taken by staying UPSET.  Let’s put it in graphic terms.  When your stomach gets UPSET, you throw up.  There’s no need to save the VOMIT.  Choose to FLUSH it and move on, thereby agreeing that you are not staying a prisoner of the UPSET.  Why do people ever choose to stay in the chaos of UPSET?   Most often, it is because they don’t feel or believe they can help it and they have no awareness that there is a choice to react differently.  Sometimes people get in a habit of staying upset because it brings attention or pity.  Others stay upset as a campaign for justice or vengeance. We can, however, train ourselves to use the weapon  called CHOICE and practice until we are skilled enough to choose not to allow UPSET to rule our lives.

In this 2 min. audio encouragement Kathy
declares: “Your Redeemer lives and He is
able to buy back time that the locusts have eaten.”


Live Full Lives

Successful business group running  together.
Let us live more than a semblance of life, more than a reasonable
facsimile thereof. In this coming year, let us rise to the heights
that our Lord invites us to and live full lives.

”Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length!
Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives,
full in the fullness of God.” (Eph.3:19, Msg)

Testing is About Equipping

TestingMetalByFireMaking right choices could be considered a test that God is monitoring, but God doesn’t score us for the purpose of determining our worth or value. From God’s point of view, testing is about equipping and strengthening as in testing your metal to see if it is sufficient for where you were born to go.  If it’s not, it will take more cocoon time, more process to strengthen.  Let me point out something about our GOD: He doesn’t gather wood to build a fire to put us through heated trials and He doesn’t design our cocoons.  It is not His character to think, “Oh, let’s let Mary be born in a poor cocoon and work through poverty.  And John, let’s let him fight fat through his early years.”  It is a mistake to blame our cocoons on God.  The truth is that when we choose life, He can then make good use of the tough times and work all things together for our benefit and growth.

Use the Gifts God Gave Us

As the people of God assemble today, may they be thankful for the
gifts they were able to give to celebrate Christmas and thankful for
the gifts they received. But may we also acknowledge the gifts our
Lord has given us and use them to edify others in the purpose
for which He gave them.

”Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many
wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others.
So use your gift well.” (1Pe.4:10, CEV)

Emmanuel, God With Us

Emmanuel, “God is with us”, is the God-Man who was born of a virgin that God might dwell among men. Not only did Jesus, Emmanuel, live among men but He lived redemptively among men. He didn’t come to bring merely a message or a creed but He lived out redemptive acts through His life on earth. His disciples, those whom He has redeemed by His redemptive act of His shed blood on the cross must, in turn, live redemptively among men. There are too many and too much to redeem to simply live to go to heaven.

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall
call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” (Matt.1:23, NKJV)

Miracles for Christmas

I have been praying for miracles this Christmas. In my thinking,
that boils down to a display of the will of God that interrupts and
changes conditions around us. The coming of the Christ is still in
effect as well as God’s goodwill toward men. May His presence
and power and purpose change your life this Christmas as His
goodwill touches the earth again. (Kathy G.)
