Who Told You That You Were Naked?

Who told you you were naked? (Gen.3:11) Are you going to live under your own lookintodistanceopinion of yourself or trust the complete provision of His righteousness and His judgments concerning you? We can live our lives confident of God’s acceptance through Christ or live trying to prove self to self. Without trust in God, we live self-focused lives, never lifting our eyes to even see destiny, much less be enabled to pursue it.—Kathy Gabler

And The Moment Before

(Kathy Gabler) – I sat alone downstairs at the piano, not really playing any particular song but simply flowing in sounds that came with His presence.  I did not intend to sing but these words slipped out of my heart, “You are the Lord of this moment.”  As soon as my words met the air, like an echo response I heard, “AND THE MOMENT BEFORE.”  I could not have explained the sudden weeping had anyone overheard it, for it was a gusher from my heart outside my logic or understanding.  Then when my understanding did open, the weeping would not stop. It was a powerful reminder that His provision is there before the problem.

Due Diligence Fear

PlanBMarkedOut(Melissa G.) Now that we have Plan A figured out, let’s talk about Plan B.  Plan B is anything that does not fit in God’s original intent for you, 2016, and beyond. There are multiple components of plan B, but I am only going to address one of them right now.  This particular component is no where near God’s original intent for us: Due Diligence Fear (DDF). Due Diligence in a broad sense refers to the level of judgment, care, prudence, determination, and activity that a person would reasonably be expected to do under particular circumstances. (uslegal.com) Due Diligence Fear [DDF] (my definition): is the level of judgment, care, prudence, determination, and activity that a person puts into particular circumstances in their life based off of fear and not wisdom or God’s provision.  It actually feels safer to live with this fear than to rely on what God said about the situation.  It feels like something I MUST do to survive.  It feels like the wise choice.

Provision Before Problem




Though I didn’t realize it, that worshipful, prophetic declaration that day at the piano was also a cry from my heart for a moment of comfort and quietness that would shut out all the noise of need and concern and “what-ifs.”  The awesome Spirit of my God did not miss nor ignore that heart-cry.  If desperation had my ship listing, His four-word echo set me aright.  If anxiety was smothering, His words brought me a deep breath.  If time was threatening, His words turned the clock back.  If I feared I was at an unchangeable end, hope took me back to a new beginning.   He was reminding me that before circumstances piled up, before dysfunction developed, before trouble troubled, He had seen it coming, and He had the table set for me before my enemies even got there.  When I said, “You are the Lord of this moment” and He echoed, “And the moment before,” it was a powerful reminder that His provision is there before the problem.
