Choosing Life or Death

While there are open doors before us, there is, however, a process of decision-making that we must give ourselves to.  Jehovah’s instruction to prophet Jeremiah has embodied within it the matter of choosing. Jer. 21:8  “You shall also say to this people, ‘Thus says the LORD, “Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death.”  Deut. 30:19 plainly shows us that our God puts His power of command to us in hopes that we will choose life instead of death and choose blessing instead of a curse. We are not simply those who observe and experience the coming and the passing of days and calendar events. We have choices to make as to how those days, events and people affect us; we must make choices as to how we will affect those days, events and people. We can be bearers of life or of death, bearers of blessing or curses.  (Second excerpt from Marty’s article “Doors and Self-Government”)

Make a Fresh Start

Occasionally in life, we tend to put ourselves in relationships and situations that effectively serve to block any progress which we have thought we should have made by this point in life. The impassible wall our decisions make seems to just reach up and block the wind that would fill our sails and move us to a much more desirable haven. Now, today, is the time to call on God and move with God.  (Ps.51:10)  “God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life… 12 Bring me back from gray exile, put a fresh wind in my sails!”  We are praying you discover daily that your sails are full of the wind of the Spirit of God and you are by-passing old stopping points.

Doors and Self-Government

Many times the future is depicted by a picture of an open door. The way to the future, to fulfillment, to victories, to glorifying the Name of the Most High God is open before us now—wide open. There are open doors before us to take us where we have never been before. We will go through those doors and be successful because the Kingdom purposes of God for us in our generation will propel us there to glorify His Name. (First excerpt from Marty’s article “Doors and Self-Government”)

To Him That Believes

As the people of God assemble today, may they encourage one another to look beyond the limits of their own experiences and disappointments to see what none of their eyes have seen and what none of their ears have heard and what none of their minds have imagined (1Cor.2:9). May they see and hear and wrap their minds around all that is possible to him that believeth. (Mk.9:23) “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”

Eyes to See the Non-typical

1Cor.2:9 does say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined.”  I wonder if when we see that, we should say to ourselves, “Up until now.” It does NOT say that we will not see—it’s just that we haven’t before now. Don’t feel like you are out in left field, unknowing, ignorant or unspiritual. Paul says that NO eye, NO ear, NO mind has imagined—not even the big name Christian celebrities on Christian TV. Every single one of us must open up our hearts and minds and let the King of glory come in with His plans and possibilities so we can come into agreement with those things “God has prepared for those who love Him.” (No matter how foreign they are to our typical way of thinking.)

Anticipate the Inevitable, Supernatural

A bit more strategy.  In 2017 we will realize we have massive amounts of help from a God-created angelic company.  It’s time to be aware that God has created an angelic army doing His will on this earth right now.  It’s time we realized we are intended to network with them because they know our destiny and it is their job to help us get there.  Just like Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6, it is time for our eyes to be opened to this partnership God intended.  At the end of 2017 we will look back in amazement at what He has done and where we are. So, go ahead and ANTICIPATE the inevitable, supernatural intervention of God!  (Last excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “A Drawing Salve Kind of Season”)

Today is a Good Day

Today is a good day. May this be your good day in realizing and embracing the blessings and protection of Jehovah God. Circumstances for the people of God turned completely around, from evil trying to wipe out the Jewish people, to everyone wanting to become Jews and partake in their favor and blessings. Attempts to destroy the people of God, end up increasing them.  (Esther 8:17, Jubilee Bible) “…in each city wherever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a banquet and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews, for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.” We are praying you discover daily that you are having a good day in spite of what has tried to take you out.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)
