Light Coming on Dreams

Perhaps you have experienced how the Holy Spirit sometimes gives you a word of wisdom which reveals a dream’s message, meaning and purpose all at once. It is like a light suddenly coming on or subtitles coming across the scenes.  I love it when God does that, as was the case recently.  On a three-way call with intercessors, a lady told her dream about a friend who had just been notified he had an aggressive cancer. The dreamer was surprised because her friend didn’t even look sick.  In fact he looked in the peak of health and fitness.  As she told the dream, I heard, “It is not physical cancer.  It is bitterness that is targeting him, but has not successfully overtaken him.” God revealed an assignment and a call to intercession through word of wisdom revealed by the Spirit.

Counter Measures

(Melissa Gabler) The initial hit from the enemy might require you to go on the defense, but you never stay there.  I will explain this in a tactical way.  I have been taking self-defense classes for over four years. One of my instructors recently said, “We teach you to defend yourself one time.  We will never teach you to stay in a defensive position.  You must counter, control, and finish the fight.”  Well, my goodness.  What strategy!  After you defend yourself one time from your enemy’s attack you then strike back with the weapons and skill God has given you.  You can’t stay just in the defensive position.  You propel forward because He already set up your counter measures and you are well armed, and able!  What are your counter measures?  Number one: Scripture. Number two: your Holy Spirit-breathed prophetic words.  Other than that, whatever God has personally set up for you.  Ask Him to show you and open your eyes to see!  Don’t get bogged down in the fear of it.  Look for His provision because it is already there.  Isaiah 54:17-“no weapon formed against you shall prosper” is not an afterthought.  It is solid forethought!


When Considering a Dream

When considering a dream or vision, the goal is communication. Understanding the way you dream and the language that may be unique to your dreams, is equipping for life. This “understanding” is a major part of “having an ear to hear”.  You may already understand most of your dreams and already know when they are from God or for a God-purpose, so your only challenge may be figuring out how to follow up or walk them out in real life.  (First excerpt from Kathy’s article “Considering Dreams and Visions”.)


Good News That Nourishes the Bones

Have you ever found yourself just looking at your phone longing for it to ring with one of those calls that ends up being a story that you excitedly tell to person after person because it was such a longed-for piece of good news? Have you ever thought that a knock on your door would turn into the good news of a life-altering opportunity? May your home be filled with good news reports, victorious stories to tell and awesome, unexpected telephone calls that thrill you and yours. (Prov.15:30, Amp) “The light in the eyes [of him whose heart is joyful] rejoices the hearts of others, and good news nourishes the bones.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are expectant and hearing good news that nourishes your bones. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


All Believers Can

The scripture says. “These signs will accompany those who believe” (Mk.16:17):  ALL BELIEVERS can cast out demons. ALL BELIEVERS can speak with tongues. ALL BELIEVERS can walk in God’s Authority over every obstacle. ALL BELIEVERS can lay hands on the sick and have them recover.  So, WHY DON’T WE?  It is time to consider things differently and change our minds. It is time to be CONVINCED God’s Word is TRUE. To BELIEVE means “to adhere to, trust in and rely on.” To the extent that we adhere to, trust in and rely on God and His Word is the extent to which we are convinced of His Authority and Power.  We must be CONFIDENT of His Authority.—Kathy Gabler 


Apply the Extraordinary

As the people of God assemble today, may their hearts and minds be alive with possibilities of receiving and applying extraordinary enablements and supply from the throne of heaven to transform their environs. May they not be tempted to yield to the poverty of human experience but be enriched by the all-sufficiency of their Savior, Christ Jesus.  (1Sam.17:47, Msg) ”The whole earth will know that there’s an extraordinary God in Israel. And everyone gathered here will learn that God doesn’t save by means of sword or spear. The battle belongs to God…”


Extraordinary Savior = Extraordinary Results

It would behoove the disciples of Christ to be aware that they have an extraordinary Savior. When Peter was in prison, there was no popular teaching making the rounds at conferences that you could call on a special squad of jail-breaking angels to get you out. Something happened that Peter had not even taught on! We are in an era of history when nothing less than the extraordinary of heaven is required in the earth.  (Eph.3:10, Msg) ”Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!”
