Don’t Miss Ordained Opportunities

MPG Grace 4-5-20Marty — John fulfilled his course (Acts 13:25). He stayed the course and remained in that position of preparing the way throughout his life. Even though he may well have wrestled with doubt while in prison, John did what he had to do in order to stay the course, even enlisting the help of others (Matt. 11:2-3) so that he might not miss the divinely ordained opportunities of the moment.

(Marty will be speaking at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY September 10-12, 2021 at Grace Church Willis… gracewillis.org)
NO FEE to attend.


Prophetic Lifestyle Opens Opportunities

Melissa — You are a representative of heaven during your lifetime. “But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A CONSECRATED NATION, A [special] PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of lookintodistancedarkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9, Amplified) The prophetic lifestyle opens opportunities, timing, and connections. Opportunities: having the ears to hear to be at the right place at the right time for yourself and others. Timing: none of us understand the timing of God because He is working on so many levels. It takes a prophetic lifestyle to see beyond the limited vision of our normal dimensions. It can keep you sane where timing is concerned. Connection: Brings lives together for God team-ups, projects, events, etc. We were never meant to do life alone (1 Corinthians 12:20-21). In this day and age, this way of life is a total necessity for the body of Christ. 


As Silver Tried in a Furnace

HeatFurnaceKathy — There is no anxiousness in God’s timing. That makes it very different from my definition of timing. Aligning circumstances and creating opportunities is the easy part for Father. Preparing us to walk in those opportunities is the real work of His timing. Ps.12:6 “The words of the Lord are pure, as silver tried in a furnace, purified seven times.”


Opportunities, Timing and Connections

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”)

2017 — Welcome Changes

CloudSunBreakThruKG — If you are battle-weary, I believe the new year, 2017, will bring welcome changes.  I’m not implying battles will stop suddenly and everybody goes on vacation.  I’m saying many long-term battles will end because you finally win.   “Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around” (MSG, Pro 13:12).  I expect some sudden good breaks in the year to come.
