Welcome Changes

ManWipeBrow.jpgIf you are battle-weary, I believe the last quarter of this 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 months to come.  –Kathy Gabler


Give Back Your Dreams

May the Lord give you back your dreams–those dreams that were in your heart DreamBoatLakeNight.jpgbefore disappointing experiences, hurts, delay of time, and weariness jaded your expectancies. May the Lord bring back to you, in full bloom, the dreams of innocent, hopeful childhood–the hopes that He longed to facilitate when you were born. May we return our hearts to His longings and purposes that do not disappoint but that take us beyond our limited expectations by His grace and giftings.  (Marty will be speaking and ministering at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2019, September 13-15, 2019.

A Good Fresh Breeze

windbreezeHave you experienced tiresome things stacking on top of other matters that are also tough to handle, and then a week or two later something else gets stacked up on top of those things? Would a good fresh breeze and a good ol’ deep breath of cool air bring relief to your fevered brow? May the Lord grant you a sudden good break that brings you much needed relief. Proverbs 13:12 (Msg) “Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.” You can pray to God Almighty in this very moment and He will hear your heart’s cry. He is the one who has the power to break unrelenting disappointment. We are praying you discover daily that relationship with Jesus Christ is turning your life around.

2017 — Welcome Changes

CloudSunBreakThruKG — If you are battle-weary, I believe the new year, 2017, will bring welcome 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.


 


Focus Back on Possibility

The attitude of cynicism tends to be contagious: the attitude of the person who has been somewhere and it was a disappointing venue, now others PictureFocusdon’t want to go there; the attitude of the person who was married and it was a disappointing experience, now others don’t want to take the chance on marriage; the attitude of the person who went all out to succeed but they ended up broke and embarrassed for having even tried, now others are afraid to step out. Cynicism displaces anticipation and induces lethargy. We must dwell on the God of the impossible and His Word that brings our focus back to all possibility. He is God and will never cease being everything He has always been. Our experiences plus the experiences of others, or even the lack of experiences, do not determine the ability of God to do wonders among His people. The Bible does not say, “All things are possible to him who has always had a perfect track record.” But it does say, “… If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mk.9:23, NKJV)

Moving From Burdened To Rest

Moving From Burdened To Rest

Rest is not giving up and flopping down on the ground. And after kicking and screaming until we are worn out, then lying in a puddle of tears while God, in bountiful pity, puts all the puzzle pieces in place just as we prefer them. “Rest” is not sitting down and doing nothing. After recent events in this nation, it is not time to pray less or stop praying. We must not stop assembling ourselves, must not stop giving, must not stop shining. It is time to pray more, assemble ourselves more, give more and shine more. “Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!” (Isa.60:1)

“Rest” is responsibly acting in the authority we have been given; our rest is that “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) Rest is not inactivity but activity couched in a holy confidence in spite of circumstances.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.” (Matt.11:28)
