Identity Matters — Who do Men Say That I am?
3min. excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s message at Kingdom Congress 2020.
I invite you to fill in the blank: In spite of ______________, the Kingdom of God is advancing. The Kingdom is advancing in spite of anything you can put in that blank. You are part of something that is bigger than you are and it is still standing and it is still advancing. The Kingdom is BIGGER: i.e., in scope and purpose – THEREFORE… being in that which is bigger than you are, you are carried along by its momentum. When you focus on and put your energies on and into that which is bigger, other things are taken care of and met by virtue of your being in a purpose that is greater than you. “But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.” (Matt.6:33, Amp)
I pray you find wisdom and may you find long life in her right hand and riches and honor in her left hand (Prov.3:16). May wisdom and discretion be life to your soul and adornment to your neck and may you walk in your way securely and your foot not stumble. May you not be afraid when you lie down. May the Lord be your confidence and keep your foot from being caught (vv.21-26)
Marty Gabler speaking on not conforming to present circumstances. Rom.12:2

Melissa — As we move forward with tenacity and God frustrates the devices of the wicked, we will each begin to see our place in the upcoming future. Let me go a little farther regarding this place we will hold by mentioning the wealth transfer in Proverbs 13:22 that’s about to get real! I’ve heard about the wealth transfer from sinner to the just all of my life, but I’ve never seen it like I do now. The reason the rest of this year is so important is because the great wealth transfer is not about someone just handing money to us. It’s about taking the place of the wicked and possessing the land for the Kingdom of God. Remember those seven mountains we have talked about for years? It’s about us taking the empty spots on those mountains after God deals out Job 5:12. Those that fought at Iwo Jima were part of the generation that has been labeled “The greatest”. Let’s be tenacious and lay hold of the grace that is readily available to us to be the greatest Kingdom generation yet!
As the people of God assemble around the family table or the TV or the computer screen, may they give themselves fully to The Potter, the Master Molder and Shaper of vessels, knowing that The Potter is never without purpose and He knows just how to work the clay to form the vessel for the right time and the right place. May they be conformed to His purposeful shaping and not be conformed to the present circumstances of the world. ”…as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand” (Jer.18:6, Amp) “My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me. 28 I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands. 29 My Father, who has given them to me as his gift, is the mightiest of all, and no one has the power to snatch them from my Father’s care. 30 The Father and I are one.” (Jn.10:27-31, TPT)
Melissa — There is something big shifting that requires us to move forward inch-by-inch as God directs. It’s about being restored to take possession. There are things that each of us have been created to lay our hands to and we are about to be called up. As we move forward with tenacity and God frustrates the devices of the wicked, we will each begin to see our place in the upcoming future. Just take rest in knowing you don’t have to have it all figured out and on track in the next 24 hours. Just simply start with realizing that He is the One that restores your soul and leads you in paths of righteousness.
