Deep Roots

As we go forward in the new year may we build our lives on the Lord God and His unfailing Word and promises so that we may become stronger and stronger, as the year progresses, for the sake of our families and nation.  ”Keep your roots deep in him, build your lives on him, and become stronger in your faith, as you were taught. And be filled with thanksgiving.” (Col.2:7, GNT)

Heavenly Change Agent

(Melissa Gabler)—Yes, it has come to this: Be vigilant – keenly watchful to detect danger; ever awake and alert; sleeplessly watchful.  Let me go ahead and say, this is not a “you deserve a spanking for allowing the world to go down the toilet” post.  Rather this post is aimed at being an alarm clock to wake up God’s sleeping giants to war! Is that you? Well, you’re the one reading this right now, and that is NO COINCIDENCE! So, here’s your wake up call, you beautiful heavenly-Change-Agent, you! What is a heavenly Change-Agent? It’s one who makes a difference wherever they are because they carry Heaven in them.  When I say Heaven, I mean one who carries the original intent of God wherever they go.  What is God’s original intent? Heaven on earth, a Kingdom without end (Luke 1:31-33).  The difference between our Change-Agents and the ones making the news right now is that we cause life, healing, peace, hope, restoration—not death and destruction!  


Shorter Mileage to Victories

There will be shorter mileage to victories. Kid’s Version: We will not get lost on our way to God’s promises. There are areas where “mileage” to victory will be much less than in previous situations. In many cases we have gotten distracted and had to go around numerous obstacles, challenges and roadblocks to get to victory. We have zigged and zagged. In the coming year we will discover that we are able to go in more of a straight line to victory thereby cutting out “extra mileage” as we learn more about Kingdom authority and our position in Christ to speak that authority and act in that authority. The defeating sense of unworthiness will be displaced by a righteous sense of royalty as sons and daughters of the King. Isa.66:8, Amp —Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she brought forth her children.  Isa.30:21, Amp—And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.


Prepared for Opposition

We are prepared for opposition of reinforcements and will not be shaken.  Kid’s Version: We will remember that God put us in charge. –I dreamed that three aliens (outer space) were walking confidently along (down a sidewalk) holding hands. Their heads were shaped like world globes. (Attempting to display global-thinking, global authority) They were three colors: Periwinkle, light blue and grayish blue. (Showing a pretentious authority, distorted authority; trying to say “I have authority” but they don’t; attempting to look like they have authority for purpose of getting people into mindset to just accept their agenda) Where intercessors and local spiritual authority have come to grips in dealing with trouble-making spirits in their region, the enemy is sending in spirits that are alien to that region trying to bring defeat at another level. Yet, you will overcome them with same blood and authority of Jesus. Get ready to learn new tactics, strategy.  Lk.10:18-19, TPT—18 Jesus replied, “While you were ministering, I watched Satan topple until he fell suddenly from heaven like lightning to the ground. 19  Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority.  1Pe.3:14, Amp—But even in case you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, [you are] blessed (happy, to be envied). Do not dread or be afraid of their threats, nor be disturbed [by their opposition].

We Will be More Aware This Year

WE WILL BE MORE AWARE THIS YEAR. Kid’s Version: We will believe God’s truth over everything else.  The Lord will enable His people to be aware because there will be people attempting to dupe them, con them, use them. This coming year we will not just slough off “feelings” or a “sense of uneasiness”. We won’t do some religiously or politically correct thing and chide ourselves for “judging”. But we will weigh and measure people and circumstances against the unfailing truth of the Bible. 1Cor. 2:15–But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things],  Prov.2:7-8, NLT –7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity 8 He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him. (From 2019 Declarations-Read them: martygabler.com/2019-declarations)


This Will be a Year of Being Refreshed by the Gifts of the Spirit

This will be a year of being refreshed by the gifts of the Spirit even more than in past years.  Kid’s Version: We will share our gifts like never before.  This year is time to be refreshed in the enabling of the gifts of the Spirit to minister to others and to be refreshed by the gifts ministered to us. When believers gather, it will be a gift exchange.  1Cor.12:4-7, NASB “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”

Many Will Regard Covenant as a Must

I declare that in 2019 Many will come to regard covenant as a must. Kid’s Version:  We will honor God and keep our promises. Many will renew and keep covenant with God and with one another. We will honor covenant and honor one another. Those who have been caught up in the spirit of breaking covenants and ignoring covenants will again regard covenant as a must. Those who have been robbed of the value and benefits of covenant will regard covenant as a must, will cling to people and opportunities, will repent, will rethink and will rebuild the walls that have been broken down. Ps.51:7-15, TPT
