Boundaries Give Order

old fence line
While identity is the first basic need in helping see ourselves as God does, the second basic need for all of us is the need for affirmation and the third basic need for all humans is boundaries. Boundaries give us an order to function within to insure our safety and well-being. Boundaries would be one side of a coin and the other is self-government. (Kathy Gabler)

Accomplished Through Connection

Jesus blessed many lives. He did miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit that redemptively impacted people. Jesus got done what He got done because of His connection with the Father. Jn 5:19  Jesus said to the Jews, “I can guarantee this truth: The Son cannot do anything on his own. He can do only what he sees the Father doing. Indeed, the Son does exactly what the Father does.” (GW) The fruit of our lives is a witness of the connections we have made. In Jn.15:4 Jesus makes it plain that the only way a branch can produce fruit is to live in the vine, i.e., be properly connected. We are praying you discover daily that you are connected to Father God through Jesus for His redemptive purposes in the earth.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.) www.txpraise.com

Anticipation is Key

What Jesus was attempting to communicate after going down from the Mount of Transfiguration is: “The things I’ve done were not just for historical records, they’re your calling, the template for your mandate and your future.  I’m not here to provide you a fleeting encounter with a super-Hero!  I’m here to inaugurate the sonship of powerful, effectual sons! When . . . are . . . you . . . gonna . . . get it?” An Equipping insight at this point is that Practice and Training to Anticipate the Power of the Kingdom of God is a major KEY for taking care of Father’s business on earth in our lifetime.  (Seventh excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Weapons Formed Against You

Don’t you just dread those times in life when it seems that every step you take is uphill? May the Lord grant that seasons of weariness and relentless opposition over your life break and dissipate like the morning mist.  (Isa.54:17, Amp)  “But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, TRIUMPH OVER OPPOSITION] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.”  We are praying you discover daily that absolutely no weapon formed against you is prospering.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Biography or Manual?

When they came down from the mountain transfiguration experience, they found the other disciples with a crowd gathering round them.  Jesus asked what was going on.  A man answered that he’d brought his son who was possessed with a spirit which makes him mute and seizes him and slams him to the ground and causes him to foam at the mouth and grind his teeth and stiffen out.  He added,  “Your disciples couldn’t cast it out.”  Then Jesus said:  “What a generation! No sense of God!  How many times do I have to go over these things? How much longer do I have to put up with this? Bring the boy to me,” (Mark 9:19).  The crowd probably went silent, cringing and blinking and backing away since Jesus was obviously irritated, but listen to what He was saying, “You’re acting like all the power I’ve been demonstrating is just for a BIOGRAPHY instead of a MANUAL, like it’s just about MY performance instead of YOUR training!  You’re treating all this like an OPTION when it is an ESSENTIAL.  Remember the man I told you about who was given one talent and he thought he had the OPTION of ignoring the Master’s priorities and burying his potential? That didn’t work out well, remember. Jesus wanted them to anticipate, to see ahead of time they were to be sons.  (Sixth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Lifting Eyes Away From Present Circumstances

As the people of God assemble today, may they look to the hills from whence comes their help. May they look beyond the present limitations they struggle against and look to the focal point of Almighty God. May they look to Him Who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb.  ”I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]—From where shall my help come?  2  My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” (Ps.121:1-2, Amp)
