Come to a New Norm

When a person or a nation received a breakthrough, when they began a new era, God was trying to tell them that they did not have to operate at the previous level. He was, through His Word and through their experiences, attempting to get across to them that they had come to a new norm. When we come to a new norm (or simply desire to) we would do well to realize that we must think differently and put effort into functioning differently.  (Fourth excerpt from Marty’s article “Embracing a New Era”;  Marty will be ministering prophetically at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 Mar.7-9.

February is for Focusing on the Face of the Lord

The month of FEBRUARY IS FOR FOCUSING ON THE FACE OF OUR LORD Who is for us, rather than focusing on the opposing factors that are attempting to defeat us.   “Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God— soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.” (Ps.42:5, Msg)    “When they opened their eyes and looked around all they saw was Jesus, only Jesus.” (Matt.17:8, Msg)

Not Doze at Time of Opportunity

May the people of God be stirred to awaken to the light of Christ who shows them the path away from fraud and error. May they awaken from all sense of slumber and not doze at time of opportunity.   “Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light!” (Eph. 5:14, Msg)

Truth as Counterforce

If we just talk about what we sense or what is going on, that is like laying a ticking bomb in the laps of others instead of diffusing it! Anything that is contradictory to God’s will should be confronted with God’s Truth. The Truth is Jesus. The truth is His Word and character and purpose in earth as in heaven, and we can speak it and release it as a counterforce to contradictions, and it will make a difference. As believers and sons of God we cannot be more focused on conditions than the Truth. If we intend to pray in faith, we must think according to His Word and principles and character, instead of falling into upset over circumstances. —Kathy Gabler

Sensitive and Faithful

2018 Declaration #4—OUR HEARTS AND MINDS WILL BE SENSITIVE AND FAITHFUL—Kids: Holy Spirit will be our guide!
We will set our hearts and minds to be faithful in our sensitivity toward the Holy Spirit and the Word of God so that we do not simply involve ourselves or embrace just anything that comes along or that the rest of society believes is acceptable.
“…he continuously exhorted (warned, urged, and encouraged) them all to cleave unto and remain faithful to and devoted to the Lord with [resolute and steady] purpose of heart.” (Acts 11:23, AMPC)

Standing on the Promises

As the people of God assemble today, may they, as one, reach forward into the year with expectancy, with commitment and with their faith firmly planted in Christ Jesus and His unfailing Word. May they stand on His promises and proclaim them to one another and for one another.  “Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God.” (Rom.4:20,WEB)

Eyes Wide Open

2018 Declaration #3—WE WILL KEEP OUR EYES WIDE OPEN FOR WHAT THE LORD HAS TO SHOW US—Kids Version: Look! Jesus has something to show us!—We will keep our eyes wide open to see what the Lord is wanting to show us 1) concerning His truths, 2) concerning situations that are working against us, 3) concerning conniving people, 4) concerning opportunities, 5) concerning how we can impact lives of others, 6) concerning how we can pray and declare over our nation and its leaders, 7) concerning current world events, e.g., when we hear about missiles in N Korea, pray for the propulsion system to fail, guidance system to fail.
“Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).” (Jer.33:3, AMPC)
