Grow Beyond Bounds

May the Lord make the remainder of the year, the people, circumstances and time TallTreeof it, a fertile ground for your purpose and destiny to grow in.  *   May you grow beyond all the bounds of what you have been told you would never be and never accomplish.  *  May you outgrow the small view and reputation that family, acquaintances, church and culture have believed they had every right to keep you in. “God sent me to announce the year of his grace—a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—and to comfort all who mourn,  To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion, give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes,  Messages of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.  RENAME THEM ‘OAKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS‘ PLANTED BY GOD TO DISPLAY HIS GLORY.” (Isa.61:2-3, Msg)


Built to Anticipate

Each of us already has a pretty full plate of anticipation about the coming year. We Excited Child.pngare built to anticipate. If we are honest, I believe we will admit that we are continually anticipating what is ahead whether we are anticipating good or bad, productive or nonproductive, desired or undesirable. Right in the middle of it all it would be quite helpful to us if we considered that it is quite difficult to anticipate the provision or intervention of God if we are not looking to God and His Word. Ps.145:15 (NKJV) “The eyes of all look expectantly to You…”  (NET)  “Everything looks to you in ANTICIPATION…” (Excerpt from Marty’s message at DVP2019)


Anticipating Something

The coming generation will anticipate something. Who will give them something to AnticipationLookUpanticipate? Will they anticipate hopelessness or the possibilities of the God of the Bible? One of the biggest favors we can do the coming generation is to build anticipation into them, anticipation for the intervention of God, anticipation to see God do something no previous generation has ever seen. Every time people speak of tragedy and hopelessness, let us say to the coming generation, “BUT GOD….”. Let’s help them keep their anticipator alive and well and functioning at peak capacity. Let’s charge it up at every opportunity! (Marty will be speaking and prophesying at Dreams Visions Prophecy 2019 which is Sept.13-15. No Fee.)

Encouraged to Press Forward

As the people of God assemble today may they be encouraged by the examples of StartRacefaith they have in the Word of God of those who hoped in the promises of the Almighty and pressed forward in patient endurance looking unto the Author and Finisher of our faith. “Such a large crowd of witnesses is all around us! So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won’t let go. And we must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us.” (Heb.12:1, CEV)


Mature Sons and Mature Results

Father God is initiating a maturing season that will bring forth mature sons who get FatherSonmature results for the Glory of their Father.  When I read 2Co 10:3-6, this is what it says to me:  For though we are flesh and blood, when it comes to war we are not limited to physical frailties, human nature or human passions.  For the weapons and tools of our warfare are not fettered by mere human motives and passions with temporal effects.  Rather, we dismantle the powers of darkness by pulling down their conniving efforts to block our knowing God and His instruction that will cause us to prevail.  As we learn to pierce the piece God points out, we will see God-results.  Like our example, we will learn to merely do what He says do and watch God happen. –Kathy Gabler


I Have Committed to Him

As the people of God assemble today, may they lift up their heads simply because PrayKneelingthey know Whom they have believed and because they know He is able to keep that which they have committed to Him. May the assembled ones commit to Him what they never have committed to Him in the past and may they fully relinquish to Him anything that they might still have some hold on.   “. . . I know (perceive, have knowledge of, and am acquainted with) Him Whom I have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on), and I am [positively] persuaded that He is able to guard and keep that which has been entrusted to me and which I have committed [to Him] until that day.” (2Tim.1:12, Amp)


Take Hold of Plan A

This is the time to loose your grasp on plan B and take hold, with both hands, of Cross roads with plan A plan B road signsplan A — Father’s original intent for your life. If your answer is hidden, ask God what the right question is in this moment.  Ask Him what, in you, might be hindering the answer.  Ask Him what you need to know today.  He’s got plans for you, He is not into punishing you.  His M.O. is all about forgiveness, redemption, relationship, and promotion, all for His glory. Hey, if He tells you it’s simply about timing then it’s really that simple.  His timing is perfect.  Look at the birth and life of Samuel.  Perseverance is key!  It’s going to be an amazing time on into next year.  Get ready for your answers.  –Melissa Gabler
