To Show Lovingkindness

MinisteringThis is the day the Lord has made so…  I will rejoice and be glad because, in this day, the Spirit of the Lord and His compassion are enabling me to show loving-kindness and mercy while I am plowing up ground to make way for the development and effect of good that will make a difference in someone’s life.  “Do they not err who devise evil and wander from the way of life? But loving-kindness and mercy, loyalty and faithfulness, shall be to those who devise good.” (Prov.14:22, Amp)


The God-Cloaked Answer

(Melissa Gabler)—(Melissa) Have you ever had times when a revelatory nugget pops up, then within days you hear the same nugget from other sources? That’s been happening as of late and I’m learning to pay attention to those! Following is one such instance that has been not only ringing in my ear, but answering some of those seemingly unanswerable questions.  While in conversation this was quoted to me from a book, “God hides some things for specific times so that the enemy cannot destroy them.” That stuck with me, and a couple of days later I read a quote from someone else that was expressing the exact same thought! Well, that really hit me between the eyes, especially because these came from trusted sources.  It was an “Are you listening?” moment. 

The God-cloaked answer is not about God withholding an answer because we don’t get it.  This is not about Him being mean or cruel.  He is indeed right the opposite. “It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindness we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22-23 (AMP).  This makes me cry.  Our God is so faithful to sustain us through these battles to our answers.  In fact, His goodness NEVER runs out! This scripture tells us they are NEW EVERY MORNING! There is new strength and grace to be set free right now.  Y’all, He NEVER gave up on plan A which is the John 10:10 abundant life.  We choose to live plan B simply because we don’t have a grasp on His love and true intent for us.


God Shows His Lovingkindness

setfreejumpHave you felt that you were being assailed? In the Bible, the word “ASSAIL” means: to attack with violence; to attack with a view to produce changes in one’s feelings, character or conduct. There may be ample evidence all around you that you are being assailed, but I speak over you a blessed assurance that, as you cry out to Him, Heavenly Father is releasing His marvelous favor and lovingkindness in the midst of the assault and the assailant is being put to flight. The psalmist declares in 31:21,”Blessed be the Lord, For He has shown His marvelous favor and lovingkindness to me [when I was assailed] in a besieged city.” We are praying you discover daily God’s lovingkindness in your life.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day. www.txpraise.com)


 


In Spite of the Dominoes

Have you felt lately that you were being assailed? It is difficult to replace that biblical description of what some of us have been under recently. Fallingdominoes“ASSAIL”: to attack with violence, to assault; to attack with a view to produce changes in the feelings, character or conduct; to shout at. Kathy and I have been assaulted with certain circumstances since the first of the year that have been building like a domino effect. Last night, sitting in my prayer chair, sometime after 2:00am it was as though I could hear a distant, faint laughter accompanied by a taunting voice saying, “And you thought that you would escape such circumstances.” This morning Kathy sat down at the piano amid the dampness and odor of mold and mildew and we began to sing of our Father’s faithfulness and we sang the names of our LORD that we worship and call on when “dominoes” are falling right and left. We decided to make our praises louder, louder than our racing hearts and louder than the clacking and falling “dominoes”. There is ample evidence all around us that we have been assailed but there is also a blessed assurance that our Father is releasing His marvelous favor and lovingkindness in the midst of the assault and the assailant is being put to flight.

”Blessed be the Lord, For He has shown His marvelous favor and lovingkindness
to me [when I was assailed] in a besieged city.” (Ps.31:21, Amp)
