Discussing Hopes and Victories

May your home be filled with different conversation in the year to come—different because you are no longer discussing threats and defeats but hopes and victories.   “Answer my prayers, O True God, the righteous, who makes me right.  I was hopelessly surrounded, and You rescued me.  Once again hear me; hide me in Your favor;  bring victory in defeat and hope in hopelessness.” (Ps.4:1, The Voice)


Factor in Nature of God

(Kathy Gabler)—When considering a dream or vision to find out if it is a dream  from God, we must always factor in the nature of God.  Since Father’s nature is to be loving, merciful and concerned for us, He is not likely to send crucial insights and drafts to action to an untrained son or daughter who would only respond in fear or stress.   I know a young woman who at eleven-years-old dreamed about the September 11, 2001, attack in New York.  When she saw the plane hit the towers on TV, it was exactly like her dream.  Seeing that she has become a strong, prophetic force in the Kingdom of God, we realize the impacting dream insight was part of her training in developing an ear to hear.  Children who are prophetic or seers or intercessors will likely experience graphic dreams and visions in training for their purpose.   (Fifth excerpt from “Continuing to Consider Dreams and Visions”)

The First Step to Defeat Defeat

Father’s strength and wisdom are available for weary people to take the first step after not moving against things that have defeated them in the last year. The time of not doing something about defeating-factors is over. The first step will be admitting there is a problem and wanting the answer, even if it means we have to put forth some effort and make some changes. The first step will be to not wait for others and not wait for those circumstances to change, but begin the change in us.  Ps.37:23— “The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].” (Amp)


Dreams and Previews

(Kathy Gabler)—When considering a dream, don’t be quick to assume the dream was a literal preview or warning.  People are usually quick to think any upset, uneasiness or troubling is a warning of impending danger or grief, but more often dreams are exposing a troubling within rather than warning of one to come.  If God does send a warning dream or vision, it is to call you to effectual action, not just trouble you.  Father would only send warning dreams to put you in motion, not put you in fear or dread. (Fourth excerpt from “Continuing to Consider Dreams and Visions”)


Find Rest

As the people of God assemble today may they find rest unto their souls. May they exchange tears and weariness for strength and joy. May they discover that true rest is responsibly acting in the authority they have been given by their Lord and Savior and not try to live a lifestyle driven by mere desire and obligation to people and causes not ordained by their Lord. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.” (Matt.11:28)
