May you lift your head, get a deep breath, may your eyes clear and focus and may you walk in the way that is right and enjoy the favor of the Lord. “For the Lord God is a sun and a safe-covering. The Lord gives favor and honor. He holds back nothing good from those who walk in the way that is right.” (Ps.84:11, NLV)

(Melissa Gabler) — We can ask the right kind of questions that lead down a path of deliverance, healing, and action. When we ask the right questions we are able to hear the answers we need. When we ask fear-based questions we have already come to the wrong, statistic-based, society-experienced conclusions. These soulish conclusions make it really hard to hear a Spirit answer. So, a good place to start asking the right question is to ask the Holy Spirit, “What questions should I be asking about this situation?” He will tell you, and most of the time these questions carry the answer in them. The right questions are a key to unlock doors and chains. The right questions give you the right perspective.
“Why are we in this present mess and why is God allowing it?” That is basically what Gideon was asking. “How soon they forget”. Gideon was asking that question in Jud.6:13 but in verse one it plainly states, “The children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord…”. Perhaps one reason humans let their “forgetter” work so efficiently is because we pretty much feel that we are not accountable for what we don’t remember. Yet, consequences still follow. (2Cor.7:9b, Amp) ”…your sorrow led to repentance [and you turned back to God]; for you felt a grief such as God meant you to feel, so that you might not suffer loss in anything…” We are praying you discover daily that Holy Spirit is bringing things to your memory so you might not suffer loss in anything. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard at the bottom of each hour on Texas Praise Internet Radio)
Keep the “Amen” alive in you; that “Amen” the Holy Spirit put down deep in you when you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Worship, read the Word, listen to the teaching of the Word, share your testimony. Stir up the “Amen” to Who God is and to His Word. “Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In Him, this is what we preach and pray, THE GREAT AMEN, God’s Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, PUTTING HIS YES WITHIN US. By His Spirit He has stamped us with His eternal pledge—a sure beginning of what He is destined to complete.” (2Cor.1:20-22, Msg)
The Lion, The Bear, The Giant And The King—The LION could not prosper against David because David kept God in the supreme position in his life, in his thoughts, in his consideration. David had to put his harp down and sing his praises out of breath while running toward the lion to do battle with the lion. The BEAR could not prosper against David because of the supremacy of God in David’s life. The GIANT could not prosper against David even though he came against David with the deadliest of weapons. KING Saul could not prosper against David even though he had supreme authority in the land. God’s supremacy was far greater than Saul and his army. “Yet God is my king from of old, Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.” (Ps.74:12, NASB)
(Kathy Gabler) —Having a cracked self-image, a shattered self-worth or a failed self-government, does not void our Father’s love or intent, nor His good plans for us! If we learn to think in our hearts like that, that truth will free us up to walk in destiny and keep us from giving up before we become all God had in mind that we were born to be. Father, may my life glorify you to the fullest extent. Let me see me as You see me. Cause me to value as You value. Grace me to live honoring Your boundaries for my life. May I live in the truth and may it be not only my freedom, but also my legacy.
