Engaging His Design

2019 is the time period the Lord has made (Ps.118:24). We will rejoice because the Lord has made it in keeping with His purposes and plans. It is a time period that we may not thoroughly understand nor have a complete grasp of. Yet, the times are in His hand (Ps.31:15). Throughout 2019 we will continue to rejoice because the all-wise God is not behind the times nor even trying to catch up. He has already stepped out into tomorrow and bids us come and partake in His worthy enterprise and we will engage His design with energy and expectation of the extraordinary. May the Lord grant you every enabling blessing for His Kingdom purposes in 2019. 


Relationship Shift

(LARRY BURDEN)— The Passover was also important to Jesus because a divine shift was coming to the disciples in their relationship with the Father. In John 15: 15, Jesus told His disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you”. The terminology identified a relational shift from that of servant-master to one of son-father. Up to the night of the Passover, the relationship of the disciples to Jesus had been strictly business. However, after the Passover meal, that changed! In the new covenant, the disciples were no longer held by the Father as servants, but sons! That night was a divine appointment that had been in the making before the beginning of time! (LARRY BURDEN is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2019.)

Not Get Off Assignment

May we not get off assignment in this coming year.
“I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what He sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does.” (Jn.5:19b, Msg)

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)


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)

On to Victories

As the people of God assemble today may those whose hearts are heavy from failures, defeats and grief of the past year lift their heads, get a deep breath and realize that they are part of the family of God and that they have strength and fellowship through Christ our Lord and the family of God to go on to victories in the coming year.  “But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. 4 With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! (Ps.3:3-4, Amp)


Awesome Reports

In 2019 I am praying to see a lot of posts that start with:

Hey, you guys, you’re not gonna believe this awesome report. . . !!!!!”


Call on Jesus

Call on the name of Jesus throughout the year. Let His name be upon your lips. You will invoke His Name and see Him heal,  see Him deliver others out of impossible strongholds of bondage and strongholds of fear. You will invoke His Name and see how marvelously He delivers you from the threat of harm, from bullies, from a violent spouse or parent or other relative. You will see God deliver elderly people from abuse by their children and others. You will invoke the Name of Jesus and the atmosphere will change.


This Will be a Year of Being Refreshed by the Gifts of the Spirit

This will be a year of being refreshed by the gifts of the Spirit even more than in past years.  Kid’s Version: We will share our gifts like never before.  This year is time to be refreshed in the enabling of the gifts of the Spirit to minister to others and to be refreshed by the gifts ministered to us. When believers gather, it will be a gift exchange.  1Cor.12:4-7, NASB “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”

Many Will Regard Covenant as a Must

I declare that in 2019 Many will come to regard covenant as a must. Kid’s Version:  We will honor God and keep our promises. Many will renew and keep covenant with God and with one another. We will honor covenant and honor one another. Those who have been caught up in the spirit of breaking covenants and ignoring covenants will again regard covenant as a must. Those who have been robbed of the value and benefits of covenant will regard covenant as a must, will cling to people and opportunities, will repent, will rethink and will rebuild the walls that have been broken down. Ps.51:7-15, TPT


Desperate for Change

(Kathy Gabler)—Our Battles this last year may have been physical or financial or attacks from people or harassment in circumstances or a siege of constant pressure. Whatever the conflict, I think battle-weariness sets in at the point there seems to be no let up, no end. Changelessness is exhausting. It can make us too tired to muster hope, but like David, that’s the time to talk to God openly. In Psalm 55, David told the Lord that he just wanted some peace and quiet, a walk in the country and a cabin in the woods. He told Him his heart was desperate for change(MSG). When we come to God in exhausted desperateness, He does not meet us there as a stonewall of resistance. That place of meeting with Him is a threshold, a starting place, a second wind. Just breathe.

May the Year Look Totally Different

(Melissa Gabler)—A reminder for 2019: don’t forget that a lot of what you are dealing with personally, whether it be physically or emotionally, may be the war in the atmosphere.  We have the authority to say “peace” because we are His agents.  When our Lord told the storm to “be still” the atmosphere listened.  We carry that same authority and it is our job to change the atmosphere during our lifetime.  So, the next time you are dealing with something personally let your first reaction be to remember there is so much more going on around you than your eyes can see.  Ask, “Where is this coming from and how do I need to deal with it?” You may simply need to say, “Peace, be still.”

Battle Weary?

(Kathy Gabler)–If you are battle-weary, I believe the new year will bring welcomed changes.  I’m not implying battles will stop suddenly and everybody goes on vacation.  I’m saying many long-term battles will end because you finally win. “Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around” (MSG, Pro 13:12).  I expect some sudden good breaks in the year to come.  


What we Don’t get Over Today

Going into the new year or new season or new opportunities requires adjustments, decisions and determination on our part. When Israel left old Egypt for the new promised land, they increased the difficulty of the transition by taking old issues, and resultant attitudes, with them. It is OK to take a wilderness experience into promise. We all have some kind of wilderness experience at some point in life, if not several of them. Having gone through the not-so-fun wilderness events, we tend to come out on the other end with negative residue on us. Not “washing off” the residue of the past will taint the tomorrow of promise. It is OK to go into promise with a wilderness experience. But is destructive to go into promise with a wilderness heart. What we don’t leave in the wilderness, trips us up in the promised land. Achan’s family, as well as himself, suffered the consequences of a wilderness heart in the promised land (Josh. 7). What we don’t get over today, overcomes us tomorrow.


Show me the Path

May the Lord prosper you in the path of life that He has ordained for you in 2019. May He show you the life He has placed in that path for you and may you impart life in that ordained path. And when you have gone down that path this year, there will be many who will never be the same because you are a bearer of His life which is redemptive. Joy to you all year. “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” (Ps.16:11, Amp)


What Would the Average Person Never Imagine?

There is no evidence in scripture that anyone imagined the Red Sea parting. Phillip could not begin to imagine 5,000 people fed with only a couple of little fish and a little bit of bread. What if when we come up against the next impossible situation we just said, “Hey, what awesome way does God want to do this?”  “What would the average person never imagine in this situation?” Graham Cooke was quoted as saying,  “Sometimes I think that sin is not necessarily immorality or selfishness. Sometimes it just means we live drab, colorless, stale, and unimaginative lives before God.” Holy Spirit, quicken the Word of God within us to inspire us to see beyond the limiting realm of our daily existence. ”For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isa.55:9, KJV)


Building up for the Future

As the people of God assemble today, may they build one another up in hope as they look to the future with expectancy for the purposes of God Almighty to be fulfilled in their lives and in their church family.  ”So then, let us pursue [with enthusiasm] the things which make for peace and the building up of one another [things which lead to spiritual growth].” (Rom.14:19, Amp)


A Deposit of Wisdom

(Kathy Gabler)—Coming into the new year we would be wise to make decisions based in the Word of God, the wisdom of God. If we go to God for a deposit of His peace and wisdom, we can make a choice that contradicts our feelings.  That doesn’t mean you are giving up strategy and resolve, it means you’re just choosing not to stay UPSET while it comes.  To stay upset is to CHOOSE death because your body will suffer, relationships will suffer and “emotional reactions” will become KING in the house and set an atmosphere that draws more upset.

Imagination Available to God

We must do something to see beyond our norm. What about an imagination that is available to God? Do we only see the mundane and the predictable and then do we pray and limit our expectations from that mundane perspective?

Have we sentenced ourselves to only praying within the predictable because of past disappointments and the conclusions of others? Children run around with a towel tied around their neck imagining that they can fly, imagining they are super heroes until we talk them out of it. As the New Year approaches let’s neglect the tendency to allow our constant consideration of our limitations to prevail and let’s reach for those new horizons where God delights in showing His kids things they have never seen. “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jer.33:3, NKJV)

This Thing is Going to be Reversed

(Melissa Gabler)—I’ve been dealing with a physical matter, not life or death, but an irritating battle that has almost caused a lock down due to the “WHAT IF this gets worse” record playing in my head… on repeat.  It’s that kind of battle that sent my emotions from one side of the spectrum to another.  After all, I’m not the only person to have dealt with this issue.  There are plenty of others living with it.  BUT I don’t see why I HAVE to live with it. So, I have been seeking God on the matter, and He has so beautifully and faithfully been giving me revelation regarding my healing all along this journey.   Throughout this journey I have known in my core that this physical issue is a done-deal.  In fact, at the beginning of this year I heard someone say that this is going to be a year of reversal! WELL, COME ON NOW (go ahead and take that for you and yours right now!).  Just another confirmation that not only am I being healed, but this thing is going to be reversed!

Our Stance — Standing

(Melissa Gabler)—Our stance in this season is standing—standing on the truth that our magnificent God is doing something BIG.  He is establishing His plan for 2019 and beyond.  Again, we GET to be a part of this.  We GET to be a change agent simply by standing.  Yes, YOU have what is needed for this moment.  Now is not the time to throw your hands up.  Now is the time to take a deep breath and watch the glorious show unfolding in the days ahead.  Yes, there will be shockers.  BUT all we need to know is that those shockers are proof that God is shaking what can be shaken (Heb. 12:27-28)!  Thankful to be Your daughter, my King.  “The kingdom of God doesn’t come by counting the days on the calendar. Nor when someone says, ‘Look here!’ or, ‘There it is!’ And why? Because God’s kingdom is already among you.” (Luke 17:21 MSG) It’s time to wake up, and be who we were born to be.  Let’s win this war, as God has intended.
