Harnessed Together for Power Results

I watched a video of a county fair somewhere in Mid-America. In a weighted-sled HorsesPullTogethercontest the 1st place horse pulls 4,000 lbs. 2nd place pulls 3,000 lbs. But when harnessed in tandem they pulled 16,000 lbs! Individual effort resulted in a total of 7,000 lbs. But together they pulled 9,000 lbs more than they did separately. Synergy: the interaction of two or more agents so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects. Together, we can get the Great Commission done. Eph.4:16, TLB — “Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly, and each part in its own special way helps the other parts, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.”


Overcome Damaging Forces

ManFootRope.jpgKathy — We are becoming mature sons. But if we don’t overcome damaging forces like self-doubt and fear of rejection, they snare us. If snared, we develop an “offense or attitude or outlook” on life that hinders our self-image, self-worth and self-discipline; and those hindrances will undermine every opportunity and relationship we have. 2Cor.6:18, TPT — “I will be a true Father to you, and you will be my beloved sons and daughters,” says the Lord Yahweh Almighty.”

Tumbling Barley Loaf

LoafBarley.jpegThe Midianites were defeated when a barley loaf tumbled into their camp (Jud.7:13). But to become a battle-winning barley loaf, we barley grains must be 1.) ground together; 2.) mixed together and 3.) baked together before we can be tumbled into the enemy. Evidently, a well-baked loaf is better than a bunch of loose grains.


August and the Mountain

FB Snippet August Mountain.jpg

The month of August is like climbing a mountain. It is a time for reassessing and rechecking our equipment and taking another good look at evaluating where we are in the climb and what it might possibly take to step into the next level of the climb. It is time to endure and cast aside any unnecessary weights that might cause us to stumble. We must be assured that the process of climbing is one step at a time and be determined to journey by faith, encouraging ourselves in the Lord. We know there is still a summit ahead and we aim for the summit and nothing less will suffice. 1Sam.30:6, KJV — ”And David was greatly distressed… but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” v.6, Msg — “David strengthened himself with trust in his God.”

Headed to Due Season

Kathy — The Greek word translated “due” in Gal.6:9 means a “personal and ReapingHarvestseparate” season or a time of processing unique to each person or unique to each situation. And it says that if we do not get spiritless and give up and pull away during processing, we will reap the full accomplished purpose of the time of trial. So we can understand God’s timing to be as long as it takes to complete His plans in us and for us! Gal.6:9, TPT — “And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!

Finding we are Preserved

As the people of God assemble today may the people of God all worship Him and call on His name in one accord. And may they find, as they go through the week that they are preserved in their person, their family, their job and their purpose. Ps.31:23, NKJV — “Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person.”   v.23, EXB — “Love the Lord, all you ·who belong to him [loyal ones; saints]. The Lord protects those who ·truly believe [are faithful], but he ·punishes [repays] ·the proud as much as they have sinned [those who act with pride].”


Like Climbing a Mountain

The month of August is like climbing a mountain. It is a time for reassessing and rechecking our equipment and taking another good look at evaluating where we MountainClimbLook.jpgare in the climb and what it might possibly take to step into the next level of the climb. It is time to endure and cast aside any unnecessary weights that might cause us to stumble. We must be assured that the process of climbing is one step at a time and be determined to journey by faith, encouraging ourselves in the Lord. We know there is still a summit ahead and we aim for the summit and nothing less will suffice. 1Sam.30:6, KJV — ”And David was greatly distressed… but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” v.6, Msg — “David strengthened himself with trust in his God.”


Embracing God’s Timing

TimingLookWatch.jpgKathy — We need to embrace God’s timing by realizing it is not about counting hours, it is about trusting God. So, embracing His timing includes keeping our attitude right until His processing in us is complete. Isa.49:23—”They that hope in the Lord will not be disappointed.” It does not say “they that hope in their desired time frame.” Our hope is in the Lord of the process, the Lord of timing.


Important Relationships

God had spoken to David years before he met those guys in 1Chron.12. But BodyDrawing.pngrelationship with them played a major role in bringing him to the throne. David was not able to get into his God-appointed position without those important relationships. Rom.12:4-5 shows us that we cannot prove the will of God by ourselves but only in relationship. Rom.12:4-5, Amp — “For just as in one [physical] body we have many parts, and these parts do not all have the same function or special use, so we, who are many, are [nevertheless just] one body in Christ, and individually [we are] parts one of another [mutually dependent on each other].”


Possibility of Missing God’s Timing

Kathy — Remember those restless nights before an important day when you were clocksafraid you would not hear the alarm so you tossed and turned? I think we are sometimes driven to anxiousness by the possibility of missing God’s timing. But if we learn to think of His timing as a process rather than an hour, some of the anxiety subsides. Phil.4:6-7, Msg — “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”


Please Make it Pain Free!

PainWomanHandHead.jpgHow often do we want to cry, “God, please make it pain free!” The zone of God’s rank and order may not be a pain-free zone. The relationships God puts us in may be for the purpose of causing the friction that burns off the things that cannot come into harmony with the destiny of Jesus. David dodged javelins and John Mark had to dodge Paul. Steel sharpens steel. (Gal.4:19)


Seven in the Bible

NumberSeven.pngKathy —The biblical significance of “seven” is “a completed SPIRITUAL work.” So the number “7” in Ps.12:6 and Job 5:19 is about a comprehensive maturing process in us. Be it “7” confrontations, or a trial that lasts “7” days or “7” weeks or “7 x 70” weeks, I do not believe God is counting to seven; rather He is overseeing the progress in us in order to bring us to completion and fulfillment.


Wage Warfare With Prophecies

As the people of God assemble today may they encourage one another to look unto HillsMorning.jpegthe hills from whence cometh their help, that help that comes from God (Ps.121:1-2). May they declare that they will not stop praying and believing and declaring the truths of God Almighty and call one another into alignment with the words of the Lord they have received before the chaos and the tumult and the storms. 1Tim.1:18-19, TPT — “…in keeping with the very first prophecies that were spoken over your life, and are now in the process of fulfillment in this great work of ministry, in keeping with the prophecies spoken over you. With this encouragement use your prophecies as weapons as you wage spiritual warfare by faith and with a clean conscience…”


My Heavenly Father Watches Over Me

“My Heavenly Father Watches Over Me” – William C. Martin
1 I trust in God wherever I may be,
Upon the land or on the rolling sea;
For come what may, from day to day,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

Refrain:
I trust in God, I know he cares for me,
On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;
Though billows roll, he keeps my soul,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

2 He makes the rose an object of his care,
He guides the eagle through the pathless air;
And surely he remembers me,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

3 I trust in God, for, in the lion’s den,
On battlefield, or in the prison pen;
Through praise or blame, through flood or flame,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

Goodness and Mercy Run After Me

sunrise_blueKathy — Psalm 23:6 says most certainly goodness and mercy will run after me and pursue me all the days of my life.  May I be aware of each time they reach me, and may I be grateful . . . all the days of my life.


Where we are Supposed to Be

Since everything flows out of Jesus (Col.1:17), rank and order is not hierarchy, it is HoldingCandle.jpgeach person being where they are supposed to be and functioning as they are supposed to function. That is how the world will see His glory; when we are where we are supposed to be, doing what we are supposed to do, releasing Heaven into earth. (1Cor.6:20; 1Pe.2:12) Matt.5:16, Amp — “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.”


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.”


Something Bigger Than Ourselves

HoldUpArms.jpegEach of us is part of something bigger than ourselves. That is why Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ arms. There is one man in the universe that God recognizes: the many-membered Man Christ Jesus. All of our relationships are subject to that premiere fact. 1Cor.12:20 “…now there are many members yet one body…”


Do Not Jump Ahead of Time

FrogJumpingKathy — Gal.4:4 – “in the fullness of time, God sent forth His Son.” It was not a calendar date as much as an appointed condition when God had nations, cultures, politics, and people in position for the birth of Jesus. Don’t jump out there ahead of God because He is positioning people, time and circumstances to accommodate us in fulfilling His purposes… and it all just works out better in His fullness of time.


Bonds of the Family of God

FellowshipHarmonyAs the people of God assemble today may they give themselves to the viability of the Word of God and the strength of fellowship and stand firm that their peace not be stolen. May they find refuge in the shelter of the Almighty and find security in the bonds of the family of God. Eph.2:19, ESV — “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”


God Measures Time

Clock in handsKathy — While man is measuring time in seconds and minutes, God is measuring time in changes, responses, transformations and alignment of people and circumstances. His primary aim is to transform people.There are those awesomely orchestrated times when His transforming events coincide on a calendar date just to declare His presence and sovereignty and loving attention to details in our lives. (Jer.29:11)


Awake at the Wheel

Melissa — Awakening is for all of us, not just the unbeliever. I’m quite excited at the thought of being awake at the wheel now and moving forward with foresight. You SteeringWheelHandRoad.jpgare no longer under subjugation of fear, diagnosis, lack, delay, the past, oppression, depression or even snares in your bloodline. You’re on a new page of your life. Just know that things are about to get amazing and shift in ways we cannot imagine. This may seem like a crazy thing to say at this point in 2020, but the truth is far more powerful than the lie. You are free and about to see great and mighty things on a much larger scale.
