Desperate for Change

(Kathy Gabler)—Our Battles this last year may have been physical or financial or attacks from people or harassment in circumstances or a siege of constant pressure. Whatever the conflict, I think battle-weariness sets in at the point there seems to be no let up, no end. Changelessness is exhausting. It can make us too tired to muster hope, but like David, that’s the time to talk to God openly. In Psalm 55, David told the Lord that he just wanted some peace and quiet, a walk in the country and a cabin in the woods. He told Him his heart was desperate for change(MSG). When we come to God in exhausted desperateness, He does not meet us there as a stonewall of resistance. That place of meeting with Him is a threshold, a starting place, a second wind. Just breathe.

Harassment Cut Off

holdinghanddownI had three more promptings to pray, “Hands off,” in the weeks that followed.  On one occasion, I had a vision as I prayed and I actually saw hands falling off at the wrist.  I quickly said, “Lord, I was not thinking so viciously.  That’s not my fault!”  However, the vision was not about any person being maimed, it was simply assurance that not only was the interference and harassment being stopped, but the ability to continue to interfere and harass was being cut off in that matter also.  Thank you, Father.

Original Intent Still in View

(Kathy) Another interesting thing happened that same week we realized it was time for old patterns to be broken: an eagle flew by Melissa’s window.  eaglelookingawayAn eagle symbolizes God’s perspective, a prophetic view that reaches beyond what we can see and feel.  That eagle pierced the current conditions and atmosphere as a  prophetic reminder that God’s original intent is still in view and no wars on the brink or patterns of interruption will keep it from coming to pass.  That is the second eagle she has seen while looking out a window this year.  The number “two” indicates a matter that is already determined by God and will soon come to pass. (Gen 41:32) It is pure encouragement to know God doesn’t forget His original intent and that He intends to bring it to pass!

Harassment Shut Out

(Kathy) As a second witness to a time for these old patterns to be broken, a call came with a prophetic word for us, “The door of the ark is about to close.”  Marty said that word meant that harassment and interference was getting shut out and God’s provision and strategy shut in, making us ready to move forward.  As I went to record and date that word, for some reason I wrote, 6/15/92.  I was shocked that year seemed to come, not to mind but to my fingers!  It made me suspect the pattern of delay and deferral that is breaking has been at work in our lives for 24 years.  Again, it is time for long-term sieges to end!

An End to Old Patterns

pencilerasing(Kathy) I perceive it is time for overused weapons (interference and harassment) to backfire.  Also, it is time for sieges to end and old patterns of defeat to be broken. We have been equipped with wisdom and awareness to refuse to be conditioned for delay and disappointment.  A new thought for me is that the way to win some wars is to end them!  Many wars lose their presence and meaning when we refuse to allow them to go inside our attitude and condition our life.  Shutting them out shuts them down.

Equipping Discovery

(Kathy) Interference hits circumstances with intent to rob or sabotage.  Harassment aims for emotions and attitudes. Both are ultimately aiming to handtoeyeslookingkeep us from crossing thresholds and getting to fulfillment. Interference usually becomes obvious at some point, but harassment often needs to be discerned, especially if it is to be countered before it contaminates. Interference and harassment are nothing new but their pattern of targeting crucial thresholds is an equipping discovery that brings focus and clarity.

Delivered From Harassment

May the Lord deliver you from every form of harassment and give you peace and take
you beyond the frustrations and delays it caused you, and may He wash off you all the
residue of those experiences as He causes you to triumph.

“In your great love, vanquish my enemies; make a clean sweep of those who harass me.
And why? Because I’m your servant.” (Ps.143:12, Msg)
