Amazed and Perplexed

It was one of those phenomenal explosions that rocks the senses, jolts the mind and sends you reeling. But this particular explosion was of obvious origin. Awesome Power which had its source in heaven hit the cosmopolitan city of Jerusalem. It was a holiday and the city had swelled its population by many thousands. A learned medical doctor used the best means of description he could find in his vocabulary to describe what it was like. Dr. Luke described the event in such a way that we know he will never forget what transpired; and he has left us with such a dazzling account that we shall never forget this divine event. It was not just divinely inspired. It was divinely perpetrated. The only way men were involved were as receivers. There was no doubt that the violent tempest blast (Acts 2:2 Amplified Bible), which rocked the entire city and shook the four walls of their meeting room while filling them, was from heaven.

God Shows His Lovingkindness

setfreejumpHave you felt that you were being assailed? In the Bible, the word “ASSAIL” means: to attack with violence; to attack with a view to produce changes in one’s feelings, character or conduct. There may be ample evidence all around you that you are being assailed, but I speak over you a blessed assurance that, as you cry out to Him, Heavenly Father is releasing His marvelous favor and lovingkindness in the midst of the assault and the assailant is being put to flight. The psalmist declares in 31:21,”Blessed be the Lord, For He has shown His marvelous favor and lovingkindness to me [when I was assailed] in a besieged city.” We are praying you discover daily God’s lovingkindness in your life.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day. www.txpraise.com)


God Faithful to Sustain

(Melissa G.) Faithful Father gives the answers to us as we process out of what is trapping us. It’s ok if it’s a PROCESS because it’s by His mercy we are inhandofgodnot consumed and His mercies are new EVERY MORNING! God is so faithful to sustain us through the battle to our answers.  This is the year to loose your grip on plan B and take hold, with both hands, of Plan A – His ORIGINAL INTENT for your life in 2016 and beyond.  This is the year to come into your inheritance as sons and daughters of the King.

Listen to a short audio file of MELISSA GABLER speaking.
“Everything Is Set Up For You To Cross The Finish Line.”

Breaking Free

breakingfreeMay the Lord most high free you from being fenced in by lack of opportunity and circumstantial opposition. May you discover that by calling upon the living Christ and looking to His resurrection power that you can break free from oppressive weights that have held you down so that it seems you cannot even breathe. May you arise this day and may you run free like the calf set free from the stall, and cross finish lines and goal lines you have never been able to cross before. Today, begin accomplishing all you were born to be.  (Ps.18:19, CEV) “When I was fenced in, you freed and rescued me because you love me.” We are praying you discover daily God’s power freeing you to be all you can be.

Preventing Self-Sabotage

jumpintonet(Melissa G.) Because of Father’s mercy there is ALWAYS opportunity to live Plan A.  How? By becoming aware of how plan B is in effect in your life, and by letting Him process you out of it.  Sometimes our answers don’t come to immediate manifestation simply to keep us from self-sabotaging the outcome.  When God does a work it is complete.  If we have broken places that would cause the answer we are looking for to eventually fall apart (self-sabotage), He starts repairing the broken places first.  His intent is for us to be whole.  When we ask, He hears.  This may be why you seemingly have not received the answer you have been looking for.  God is faithfully and lovingly repairing the cracks in your foundation so the answer you’re waiting on completes the whole.  He gives the answers to us as we process out of what is trapping us.

Common Point of Strength

lookuntohillsAs the people of God assemble today, may there be a sense of community and oneness as people of God look together unto that One from whom comes their strength. May they find strength in community and strength in their God. ”I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”  (Ps.121:1-2, KJV)
