Help My Doubts

Jesus said, “If you are able to believe, all things are possible to the ones believing.” (Mk.9:23) No sooner were tThe words out of His mouth than the father cried, “Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!” That may sound weak in terms of faith, but that was the beginning of repentance as the man’s thinking was changing. Repentance brings Kingdom power and provision into reach. “Repent, for the Kingdom is at hand.” (Matt. 4:17).  So, when the power and provision of the Kingdom of God seems beyond our reach, it is time to rethink something.  (Third excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)

A Vital Necessity

We will determinedly go after the things that we believe are absolute necessity. There is One necessity, however, we must absolutely go after at all costs.  (Jer.29:11-13, Amp)  “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you. Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a VITAL NECESSITY] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are seeking God and requiring Him as a vital necessity. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

For The Future

Jesus said, “If you are able to believe, all things are possible to the ones believing.” (Mk.9:23) He was telling him, “Sir, the ‘IF’ is in your court both now and in the future.” The way Jesus handled this situation shows us the Power of the Kingdom was being released for more than that boy. The deliverance was for the whole family.
An equipping insight here is that anticipating and participating in a Kingdom power moment may be more involved than we perceived in the very beginning. It may include prepping people to receive as well as equipping them to hold steady for the future.  Some of the healing evangelists in the last sixty years would require people to be in three meetings before they got in the prayer line.  I have to wonder if they too were trying to affect the thinking of people so they could align with God to keep their healing in the future.  (Third excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)

Who is Like Thee?

As the people of God assemble today, may their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be the focus of every heart and mind. May His praises be made glorious and may the Spirit of Christ flood each and every one with His enabling power to the glory of the Name that is above every name, JESUS.   ”Who is like unto Thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Ex.15:11, KJ21)

Father Will Finish What He Started in You

There are many experiences which we have in life that have altered our behavior. Sometimes we have learned from them but in some cases we have allowed certain experiences to dictate changes to us which have, in turn, affected progress to our destiny. Some of those effects will not be immediate but they hold long-term results for us. Some of us have had experiences where we have trusted God in certain matters and, when expected results did not take place, we stopped believing God in those areas. There have been instances when we trusted in fellow Christians and in ministers who let us down and we adjusted our behavior for future reference and self-preservation. There are people who were once convinced that they had a true prophecy from God or that they had received a burden or a vision from God that was their life’s call and nothing ever materialized on the matter. When that happens we determinedly embrace a “paradigm shift” and woe be to anyone who tries to talk us out of it. Once we were convinced that God’s intentions toward us were large but because we experienced a repeated hindrance, we can end up believing we never did hear from God. Then we wind up believing in our disappointing experience more than we believe the Word of the Lord. But, let us lift up our heads and trust to Father God who desires our fulfilled destiny more than we do, for ”I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].” (Phil.1:6, Amp)

Follow-Through-Thinking

Jesus said,  “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me!” (Mark 9:19).  His frustration was obviously because He had been training the twelve to be sons who understood Kingdom Power, but they didn’t seem to “get it.”  Jesus then looked to the father and asked, “How long has this been happening to your son?”  The father answered, “From childhood. It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. If You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!”  Jesus did not always ask a question like this.  His question caused the man to lay everything on the table, 1) his grief from the past, 2) his helplessness in the present and 3) his plea for the future.  Evidently, Jesus wanted the father to say it, so he could see his thinking because anticipation, or the realization of what can happen is only the beginning.  The father’s follow-through-thinking would be crucial to their future.  (Second excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)
