In This Year Less is More

Less is more. Simple is wise. This year we have entered into is a great year to allow Holy Spirit to give weight to our words to help and edify people who are desperately looking for solace and solutions. We are going to find that the simplest things the Lord inspires us to say to someone are going to be the most powerful. You are the bearer of His Spirit, of His Living Word. Those words will be of the Lord and they will impact that person or persons and then they will walk away from us carrying something they did not have before we spoke the simple truth of God’s Word and God’s heart. Prayers and declarations do not have to be complicated. Just get out in the moment what needs to get into the atmosphere.  ”What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear, proclaim on the housetops.” (Matt.10:27)


Building Process

Kathy — The operations of traditional church simply don’t carry the power or impact that God intended for His Ekklesia/Church. I am not suggesting that we strain or strive to not be traditional but that we yield ourselves to
Jesus as He builds His Church/Ekklesia. His building process is more than simply adding to its numbers. Build also means “edify, mature and develop” So before we get determined and get a hernia trying to be the Ekklesia, or before we get zealous and start calling fire down out of heaven, or before we almost drown trying to walk on water, let’s remember it is Jesus that builds and empowers us as His Church.


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)


Edify One Another

As the people of God assemble today, may they report to one another and encourage one another with dreams, visions and prophetic confirmations that inspire each one to move forward in faith and hope to the horizons Almighty God has as He manifests His sons/daughters as salve and solution to the groaning of creation.  (1Thess.5:11, NKJV) ”Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”


Going Out Among Them

No doubt some of the distressed, heart-broken and captives will be ministered to as we gather for worship for that is when “God sits down among his people” (Ps. 22:3).  And you can count on the fact that when God Sits down among his people something will happen!  But most of those who will be ministered to by this fellowship of believers will first be ministered to by those of us who come to worship, receive encouragement from the Word, are edified and then go out among them and allow what God has done in our lives to touch their lives.


Edifying and Manifesting

As the people of God assemble today, may they report to one another and encourage one another with dreams, visions and prophetic confirmations that inspire each one to move forward in faith and hope to the horizons Almighty God has as He manifests His sons/daughters as salve and solution to the groaning of creation.  (1Thess.5:11, NKJV) ”Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”

Speak Encouraging Words

This is the day the Lord has made so…  I will rejoice and be glad that the Holy Spirit enables me to edify others in it! 1Thess.5:11 says “So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.” It is possible to turn someone’s day completely around. It is even possible to turn someone’s life completely around with just a few encouraging words inspired by the Holy Spirit. Edify means “to restore by building, to rebuild, repair, establish, to promote growth in Christian wisdom, affection, grace, virtue, holiness, blessedness.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are edifying others so they may realize their value in helping others.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)
