An End to Old Patterns

pencilerasing(Kathy) I perceive it is time for overused weapons (interference and harassment) to backfire.  Also, it is time for sieges to end and old patterns of defeat to be broken. We have been equipped with wisdom and awareness to refuse to be conditioned for delay and disappointment.  A new thought for me is that the way to win some wars is to end them!  Many wars lose their presence and meaning when we refuse to allow them to go inside our attitude and condition our life.  Shutting them out shuts them down.

Performing What He Promised

As the people of God assemble today, may they dwell on the God Who plans and Whose plans never fail. May they worship and look to the One who is greater than any politician and Who keeps His promises. Not only does He make promises but He is able to keep them.
”and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” (Rom.4:21, NKJV)


 


Month of Revealing

November will be the month of revealing. The things that are hidden have not all been brought to light yet. There is more to come. The news will be worth watching over the next four days. Lies will fall apart like a crack in the ice. The spiderweb effect will spread and gain momentum until they have nothing to hold them together. We will keep our minds fixed on God’s eternal Word and purposes and He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness. Corruption has an expiration date.
“Now comfort me so I can live, really live; your revelation is the tune I dance to. Let the fast-talking tricksters be exposed as frauds; they tried to sell me a bill of goods, but I kept my mind fixed on your counsel.” (Ps.119:77-78, Msg)


 


Equipping Discovery

(Kathy) Interference hits circumstances with intent to rob or sabotage.  Harassment aims for emotions and attitudes. Both are ultimately aiming to handtoeyeslookingkeep us from crossing thresholds and getting to fulfillment. Interference usually becomes obvious at some point, but harassment often needs to be discerned, especially if it is to be countered before it contaminates. Interference and harassment are nothing new but their pattern of targeting crucial thresholds is an equipping discovery that brings focus and clarity.

Pleasant Memories

memoriescouplesunMay sights, sounds and smells bring back to you pleasant memories. May those remembrances serve as witnesses to you of what is yet to come. May your heart and mind be filled with all the good things our good God has done in His Word and may you thrill with the possibilities for your tomorrows. May you see them coming on the horizon and may you embrace them in near days.
”Joyfully you’ll pull up buckets of water from the wells of salvation. And as you do it, you’ll say, ‘Give thanks to God. Call out his name. Ask him anything! Shout to the nations, tell them what he’s done, spread the news of his great reputation!’” (Isa.12:3-4, Msg)


 


Harassment and Coincidence

While writing this article, I was interrupted by the insurance lady. When I went back to the computer, this article file would not open again!  Finally, after many attempts and maneuvers, it opened. Then, in broad daylight, a roach ran up the slick metal tube leg of my TV tray and on to my computer fightingroachscreen!  You have to know me to fully appreciate the adrenaline implosion and the level of harassment that bodacious devil represented! (At that point I figured I must be on the verge of divulging one of hell’s favorite operations with this threshold interference ploy!) Of course, I had to stop writing to vacuum under everything that could be moved and then exterminate the house to build up enough nerve to go back to the computer.  It was frustrating and the thought actually passed through my mind to put the whole subject down and walk away, but I suddenly realized the timing of this personal-harassment-roach was not a random coincidence! When I could breathe normally and was over my terror, I realized personal harassment and interference are like a double-barrel shot gun.  Interference works on circumstances and harassment works on us.  Both are fighting dirty in an attempt to condition our thinking and attitudes and opinions and conclusions with the ultimate goal of taking advantage of our superpower which is agreement.
