Come to a New Norm

When a person or a nation received a breakthrough, when they began a new era, God was trying to tell them that they did not have to operate at the previous level. He was, through His Word and through their experiences, attempting to get across to them that they had come to a new norm. When we come to a new norm (or simply desire to) we would do well to realize that we must think differently and put effort into functioning differently.  (Fourth excerpt from Marty’s article “Embracing a New Era”;  Marty will be ministering prophetically at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 Mar.7-9.

The Perfect Prayer

Truth and relationship with the Lord is about your meditations, thoughts, words, prayers. Are your thoughts and prayers abounding from His truth or the latest from Fox, CNN, Facebook, or Twitter? A safe and healthy place from which to operate your day is praying in tongues throughout. It’s the perfect prayer not swayed by national or family events. It’s the perfect prayer not swayed by the soul. In fact, don’t limit it to that. You may think you’re praying about what is concerning at the moment, but the Spirit prays what needs to be prayed at the moment whether it be for that particular situation or something completely different. Thank God that type of prayer cannot be touched by soulish fears and desires. That is exactly why it is perfect! God knew what He was doing when He gave us such a gift. Yes, I’d say it’s for today. My thought, the soul might say otherwise because it can’t control it. Ok, I’ll just leave that right there and wrap this up. It’s time to call on Him. It’s time to see great and mighty things. It’s time to be great and mighty things.  (Last excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “Call on Him”.) Melissa is speaking and leading worship at Kingdom Congress 2018 – March 7-9.

Not Curbside Pickup

It’s going to take loving the Truth (which is a Person—THE Person) to see great and mighty things for which an earth is groaning (Romans 8:17-19). It’s going to take some calling on that Person which requires relationship, not curbside pickup. And relationship takes time, time out of your day. This does not mean you have to set aside hours and hours every day. That is not a bad thing if that’s where you are currently, or a season you are headed into. Other than that, a relationship is all day everyday.   (Fifth excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “Call on Him”.) Melissa is speaking and leading worship at Kingdom Congress 2018 – March 7-9.

February is for Focusing on the Face of the Lord

The month of FEBRUARY IS FOR FOCUSING ON THE FACE OF OUR LORD Who is for us, rather than focusing on the opposing factors that are attempting to defeat us.   “Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God— soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.” (Ps.42:5, Msg)    “When they opened their eyes and looked around all they saw was Jesus, only Jesus.” (Matt.17:8, Msg)

Pursuing Jesus This Year

(Larry Burden) “As 2018 is now in motion, anticipate the extraordinary manifestations of the Holy Spirit as you continue to pursue the realities of our Father’s eternal kingdom. It is our year to grow in maturity, to increase in spiritual strength and to prosper in our assignments of the harvest. It is our year to expect the unexpected interventions of God in our life situations. We must not confuse our conditions with the truth of God’s character. We must expect extraordinary health, expect our prayers to be answered, and grow in our confidence in God! Remember, it is not what we think we are that stops our growth, it is what we think we are not that stops us. What we pursue, we become like. Let’s pursue Jesus with all our hearts this year!”   (Larry will be speaking at Kingdom Congress 2018 March 7-9.)

A Sense of More to Come

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. 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)

Not Doze at Time of Opportunity

May the people of God be stirred to awaken to the light of Christ who shows them the path away from fraud and error. May they awaken from all sense of slumber and not doze at time of opportunity.   “Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light!” (Eph. 5:14, Msg)
