In it For The Long Haul

There are all manner of threats and predictions concerning present perils and the “need for wisdom” in future ministry considerations. While many are calling for such wisdom to be applied in this hour, somewhere a cry should also be going forth for some amount of determination to be applied. Where is it written that authority is given to events of certain times in history or to evil persons of those times to victory_groupbecome the master decision-makers for all of us, especially those who were acknowledging and embracing a divine destiny before these threatening perils and persons started doing their destructive deeds? 9 “Remember your history, your long and rich history. I am God, the only God you’ve had or ever will have—incomparable, irreplaceable— 10 From the very beginning telling you what the ending will be, All along letting you in on what is going to happen, Assuring you, ‘I’M IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL, I’LL DO EXACTLY WHAT I SET OUT TO DO,’ 11 Calling that eagle, Cyrus, out of the east, from a far country the man I chose to help me. I’ve said it, and I’ll most certainly do it. I’ve planned it, so it’s as good as done. 12 “Now listen to me: You’re a hardheaded bunch and hard to help. 13 I’M READY TO HELP YOU RIGHT NOW. Deliverance is not a long-range plan. Salvation isn’t on hold. I’m putting salvation to work in Zion now, and glory in Israel.” (Isa.46:9-13, MSG)


In The Face of Great Challenges

We are facing issues that generations before us did not face. Within moments of events taking place in remote parts of the world, we are watching them in real time. There are great challenges before us now and challenges yet to come. Those challenges must not go unmet. (Isa.45:15, The Voice) “Cyrus said You have kept yourself hidden from others, but You are indeed God, who saved Israel in the face of great challenges.” Great Jahweh who saved Israel in the face of great challenges has not run out of solutions for present generations. Just as He used ordinary people in biblical times, He is still using them in these challenging times. We are praying you discover daily that you are trusting in Mighty God to help you meet the challenges in your life.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.) www.txpraise.com
