(Kathy Gabler) What “used to be” is not the witness that will impact a community or a region for the Kingdom. I AM is being misrepresented if He is not present tense and awesome. If we refuse to allow pride or fear to keep us from fresh and timely obedience, sons of God will be redefined and repositioned as needed and we will flow into a momentum that causes the good plans of God to manifest. The groaning (Rom.8:19) communities and regions will reel with the supernatural results and exponential harvest that He has planned.
As we go forward in the new year may we build our lives on the Lord God and His unfailing Word and promises so that we may become stronger and stronger, as the year progresses, for the sake of our families and nation. ”Keep your roots deep in him, build your lives on him, and become stronger in your faith, as you were taught. And be filled with thanksgiving.” (Col.2:7, GNT)

(Melissa Gabler)—Yes, it has come to this: Be vigilant – keenly watchful to detect danger; ever awake and alert; sleeplessly watchful. Let me go ahead and say, this is not a “you deserve a spanking for allowing the world to go down the toilet” post. Rather this post is aimed at being an alarm clock to wake up God’s sleeping giants to war! Is that you? Well, you’re the one reading this right now, and that is NO COINCIDENCE! So, here’s your wake up call, you beautiful heavenly-Change-Agent, you! What is a heavenly Change-Agent? It’s one who makes a difference wherever they are because they carry Heaven in them. When I say Heaven, I mean one who carries the original intent of God wherever they go. What is God’s original intent? Heaven on earth, a Kingdom without end (Luke 1:31-33). The difference between our Change-Agents and the ones making the news right now is that we cause life, healing, peace, hope, restoration—not death and destruction!
As the people of God assemble today may His people have a sense of the more that is to come of His purposes and His outpourings in 2019. May the hope of receiving and participating fill their hearts with expectancy. “In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary–we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!” (Rom.5:5, Msg)
There will be shorter mileage to victories. Kid’s Version: We will not get lost on our way to God’s promises. There are areas where “mileage” to victory will be much less than in previous situations. In many cases we have gotten distracted and had to go around numerous obstacles, challenges and roadblocks to get to victory. We have zigged and zagged. In the coming year we will discover that we are able to go in more of a straight line to victory thereby cutting out “extra mileage” as we learn more about Kingdom authority and our position in Christ to speak that authority and act in that authority. The defeating sense of unworthiness will be displaced by a righteous sense of royalty as sons and daughters of the King. Isa.66:8, Amp —Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she brought forth her children. Isa.30:21, Amp—And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.
WE WILL BE MORE AWARE THIS YEAR. Kid’s Version: We will believe God’s truth over everything else. The Lord will enable His people to be aware because there will be people attempting to dupe them, con them, use them. This coming year we will not just slough off “feelings” or a “sense of uneasiness”. We won’t do some religiously or politically correct thing and chide ourselves for “judging”. But we will weigh and measure people and circumstances against the unfailing truth of the Bible. 1Cor. 2:15–But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], Prov.2:7-8, NLT –7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity 8 He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him. (From 2019 Declarations-Read them: martygabler.com/2019-declarations)
