Sons Must Get It

In Mark 9, when Jesus and Peter, James and John came down from the Mount of Transfiguration experience, they found the other disciples with a crowd gathered and a man that said he’d brought his son for deliverance. The father explained that his son was possessed with a spirit which made him mute and seized him and slammed him to the ground while causing him to foam at the mouth and grind his teeth and stiffen out.  Then he added, “Your disciples couldn’t cast it out.” Jesus had been training the twelve to be sons who understood Kingdom Power, but they didn’t seem to “get it.”  (First excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)


Staying on Track

Have you ever had intentions to get something accomplished on your day off but each time you walk into a room or see an object, you get sidetracked and never reach your goal?  May the Lord keep us with His Word and His Wisdom that we not become convoluted with side-tracking issues and that we not clutter up our purpose and focus with relationships that God has not ordained.  (2Cor.6:14, Amp) “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them…, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness?” We are praying you discover daily that you are staying on track with the God-intentions for your life.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


Available to be Someone’s Hope

A friend of mine wrote a song that says, “What if we are the awakening that we’ve been waiting for?”  Could it be that God is hoping that we will think big enough and offer ourselves to be some person’s or some community’s or even some nation’s hope?  Rather than just going through life hoping for someone else to be what we need or hoping someone else will give us a break, what if we met a need or gave someone else a break that helped launch them into their destiny?  May the people of God propel many people forward in the purposes of God.  (Isa.35:3, Amp) “Encourage the exhausted, and make staggering knees firm.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are giving hope to others so they can succeed.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


Not Allowing Obstacles

The gate in Matt. 7 is not narrow because God put the posts really close together. The gate is narrow by virtue of the things that are about it. If you will hear it, I declare over you that those things that have made the gate “narrow” by virtue of their presence will not be the obstacles in the coming year that they were in the past year. They will not be those obstacles because you will not allow them to be. You will not give them the place they have had in your life in the past.  (Seventh excerpt from Marty’s article “Doors and Self-Government”)


Pushing Forward

It has been said that “graveyards are full of good intentions that were never walked out,  full of dreams never fulfilled, books never written, relationships that were never gleaned from”. May you realize today that there is no reason for you to live a lesser version of what God intended you to be. There is no reason for you not to dream and, with the enablements of the Spirit of God, press forward beyond discouragements and obstacles.  (1Pe.5:9b-11, Msg) “….keep a firm grip on the faith… It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ… will have you put together and on your feet for good.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are becoming more fully what Father God intended.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


Doors and Excuses

There are a variety of excuses for not going through God-ordained doors of opportunity. Some of the doors we are supposed to go through are just beyond temptation. Some of them are just beyond ignorance and neglect and some are just beyond lethargy. Temptation can be resisted, ignorance can be displaced by willful pursuance of knowledge and wisdom. Neglect can be exchanged for responsible activity and lethargy can be handled by self-government. There are many waiting for us to make the right choices to get beyond the hindrances that stand between us and the doors to success in advancing the Kingdom in this earth. (Sixth excerpt from Marty’s article “Doors and Self-Government”)


Word of God Penetrates

As the people of God assemble today, may the Word of God penetrate right through the layers of stress and frustration they wrestled with all week long. In the gathering, may the powerful Word of God show and demonstrate our Lord’s authoritative hand lifting every stubborn layer that opposes peace and victory.  ”Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” (Isa.41:10, TLB)
