Eyes to See the Non-typical

1Cor.2:9 does say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined.”  I wonder if when we see that, we should say to ourselves, “Up until now.” It does NOT say that we will not see—it’s just that we haven’t before now. Don’t feel like you are out in left field, unknowing, ignorant or unspiritual. Paul says that NO eye, NO ear, NO mind has imagined—not even the big name Christian celebrities on Christian TV. Every single one of us must open up our hearts and minds and let the King of glory come in with His plans and possibilities so we can come into agreement with those things “God has prepared for those who love Him.” (No matter how foreign they are to our typical way of thinking.)


Anticipate the Inevitable, Supernatural

A bit more strategy.  In 2017 we will realize we have massive amounts of help from a God-created angelic company.  It’s time to be aware that God has created an angelic army doing His will on this earth right now.  It’s time we realized we are intended to network with them because they know our destiny and it is their job to help us get there.  Just like Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6, it is time for our eyes to be opened to this partnership God intended.  At the end of 2017 we will look back in amazement at what He has done and where we are. So, go ahead and ANTICIPATE the inevitable, supernatural intervention of God!  (Last excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “A Drawing Salve Kind of Season”)


Today is a Good Day

Today is a good day. May this be your good day in realizing and embracing the blessings and protection of Jehovah God. Circumstances for the people of God turned completely around, from evil trying to wipe out the Jewish people, to everyone wanting to become Jews and partake in their favor and blessings. Attempts to destroy the people of God, end up increasing them.  (Esther 8:17, Jubilee Bible) “…in each city wherever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a banquet and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews, for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.” We are praying you discover daily that you are having a good day in spite of what has tried to take you out.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


A Bit of Strategy

Here is a bit of strategy.  At the beginning of the year the Lord told me to take this year week by week.  That has been an absolute life saver.  There have been several weeks that have ended on a rough note, but the Holy Spirit reminds me of the instruction and it brings hope because I don’t know what God has planned for next week.  Next week does not have to look like this week, and won’t.  Two days after hearing the “week by week“ strategy I heard the Lord say, “You are tiptoeing into something big”.  Tiptoeing? What an interesting word choice.  It simply means stealth/cautious.  So, we have to take this year week by week because we are tiptoeing into position! The Lord is carefully putting us into a place He created us to fill.  This is the year of placement and revealing.  (Fourth excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “A Drawing Salve Kind of Season”)

Transition and the Unveiling Process

As the people of God assemble today, may they realize that we are not through transitioning. In fact biblical principle, according to Phil 1:6, proclaims that as long as we are in this present age the transitioning to His Image will continue. “{For I am} confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” (NAS) If God is going to complete the work He has begun in us that means transition, it means process; it means a proceeding word from God that takes an unveiling process. May the people of God encourage one another that the fruit and the benefit are worth the process.


Battle of the Mind

If a war breaks out within your mind, because you are sick yourself, when someone asks you to pray for them, that is a (behind the scenes) battle over sonship.  Even if we don’t voice it, as children of God we know our Father doesn’t withhold any good thing like healing, right?  So, when I am not healed, my sonship easily comes under fire, until I repent (which means I catch what I’m thinking and change it).  We change our thinking by remembering the Truth.  In this case, the truth is that infirmity cannot de-son nor de-daughter anyone because sonship is a covenant, not a condition.  Sons anticipate, meaning they already have a realization of the power of Father’s faithfulness to His Word and His Covenant, so they pray out of that confidence, even if their tooth is aching while they pray for someone’s fever. We don’t have to forego anticipation and participation in God-exploits, even while we are under attack or winning sonship wars.
