Melissa and the Grace Worship Team had been asked to start the worship in the Awaken the Dawn prayer and worship project in Texas. Anticipation had been building in me for three weeks that this assignment would be part of a God intersection in history at our state capitol in Austin. I was confident there would be a sound released that pierced through opposition and spiritual darkness and interference. I had seen a sound piercing through the heavens to open a portal, an access for God’s desire “as it is in heaven” into the earth, an opening for a God-flow into the politics of our state and nation. From the first sound, God’s presence and anointing was infusing the atmosphere around the governmental heart of our state. As we entered the iron gate we heard the sound, and friends coming down Congress Avenue by car heard the sound of Melissa’s voice declaring, “We set our hope on the One who is the EVERLASTING GOD.” I stood in awe that that particular proclamation echoed over the grounds of the state capitol of Texas in 2018.
When I reached the sidewalk in front of the capitol, I was aware that angelic forces were at work ushering in changes in circumstances and filling the capitol building with light that would penetrate its recesses and resources. A breeze literally swept across us signaling the winds of change were arriving that would leave no sabotaging evil untouched. I perceived the Spirit of God was interrupting the pace of men and their agendas whether those agendas were public or private. —Kathy Gabler (Fifth excerpt from “Ever Increasing”)
