The Lord Restore

As the people of God assemble today may they take the opportunity to call upon the Lord Most High to restore what they have lost in recent months. May they confidently call upon His name and confidently expect to see the goodness of the Lord as He restores.  Ps.23:1-3,TPT — “Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd. I always have more than enough.  2 He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss. 3 That’s where he restores and revives my life.

God is my Hiding Place

tentrockbedouinAs the people of God assemble today may they edify and comfort one another with assurances of Almighty God being their hiding place from all that troubles and threatens. May they continually abide in the shelter of the Almighty. Ps.27:5, CEV— “In times of trouble, you will protect me. You will hide me in your tent and keep me safe on top of a mighty rock.”

Stronger Than the Week Before

LiftweightsOverHeadAs the people of God assemble today, may they hear and experience the powerful Word of God that propels them forward and may they go into the coming week stronger than the week before.
”The righteous shall move onward and forward; those with pure hearts shall become stronger and stronger.” (Job 17:9, Living Bible)

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.

Big Mouth and Microphone

Kathy — Rom. 12:2, addresses this:  be not conformed to this world or age or time or influences of culture.  Don’t let your beliefs and conclusions and priorities be MegaphoneAnnounce.jpgmolded by that.  If we are going to seeas it is in heaven” and see God’s original intent in earth, we’ll have to think beyond typical.  That means, (a) we can’t be so open minded that our brains fall out, and (b) we don’t react to life like everybody else does.  We have to choose not to live in anxiety over a new strain of flu and we have to choose not to assume that we’ll be one of the  predicted financial failures in 2020.  We absolutely dare not be typical and ignorant and follow the dictates of this age and culture where someone with a big mouth and a microphone becomes the TV expert to decide our future. 

Solutions to Present Challenges

Those trying/challenging circumstances that made a pronounced entrance into the LookingAheadLadderhistory books in the early part of the 20th Century drove some to excel. They also enabled some who had certain knowledge, skill-sets, personality wiring, and creativity to get traction in spite of the slippery pavement of uncertainty. For those who will stand on tiptoe and stretch their neck to look beyond fears, immediate obstacles and predictions based on limited knowledge, there will always be solutions and vision waiting that can be applied to present challenges.


About to be Called up

Melissa — There is something big shifting that requires us to move forward inch-by-inch as ArmyRomanStanding.jpgGod 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.

Inch by Inch

Melissa — God is putting His finger on things that must be dealt with right now in individual’s lives. This is a tremendous opportunity to be free of cycles, issues and RulerColors.jpgfears that have held you and your family captive. I know there are those reading this right now that have had recent revelations of personal bondage that the Lord is unlocking. He’s opening eyes and restoring lives for, dare I say, such a time as this! So, take rest in knowing you don’t have to have it all figured out and on track before you go to bed tonight. Just simply start with realizing that He is the One that restores your soul and leads you in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake (Ps. 23).  It’s about that, His Name’s sake, inch-by-inch for His Name’s sake.

Breaking out of old Patterns

BreakthroughwallGod is breaking us out of old patterns. He is breaking old patterns of habits, of things that defeat us, the old patterns of thoughts and attitudes that lead us into defeat. He is breaking those old patterns so that we can walk in freedom and be at peace in His purposes. “He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.” (Ps.23:3, NKJV)


Edification in Prayer and Word

He Restores my Soul

As the people of God assemble today may they worship the One Who is restoring their soul and giving them the rest of relationship and identity in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Ps.23:2 ”He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.   3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.”

The Good Shepherd is Compassionate

Oh, sheep, know thy Shepherd. The Good Shepherd is too compassionate to be cruel and He is too wise to be irrational. His ways are not the epitome of men’s frustrations and anger with one another nor the outworking of men’s legalisms.  (Excerpt from “Sheep Have Short Legs” book by Marty Gabler)




Candidates To Participate

SeaSunEven before the resurrection, the sea water had its normal density and the body of Jesus had its proper density, yet Jesus walked on water (Matt.14:26). This LORD of the many-layered wisdom of God (Eph.3:10) is not bound by dimensions, nor by the poverty of human experience, nor by the laws of gravity or mass. Therefore, the advancing of His Kingdom and the sons of that Kingdom are candidates to participate in what their King has set up.
”Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” (Isa.9:7)

Good Heritage Results

Portrait Of Extended Family Group In ParkYour healing is not dependent upon how much of something has come down through your bloodline or how much of something is lacking in your bloodline. What is purportedly happening to your age-group financially and health-wise are not predetermined factors that sons and daughters of God must bow to.

“The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good heritage.” (Ps.16:6, Amp)

Expectancy: Variations On A Theme

Let’s take the lid off Expectancy through Variations on a Theme:  I have seen artists do variations on a theme, like roses for example.  With twenty artists painting roses, the rose rainbowcolors and shapes and sizes and details vary to such extremes that the results are unique beyond imagination.  I believe that it would help us clear some of the fog about our life calling and purpose if we expected a variation on a theme, if we expected our lives to produce a unique expression of obedience.   For too long many of us have lived in EXPECTANCY that is limited in scope, especially regarding purpose, calling and fulfillment.  Purpose often gets narrowed down to constricted categories as either religious, noble callings or secular, ignoble callings that are simply necessary functions in society.   Experience and tradition narrow thinking even further by defining the most noble to be callings of God as those within the church structure or system.   Even the gifts of the Spirit have been so narrowly confined that we don’t expect a word of knowledge outside a church service nor do we expect a working of miracles in secular corporations or classrooms.  All these limited definitions have dictated our EXPECTANCY level and eventually our outcomes.  The theme of all our lives should be to glorify God on the earth by accomplishing the work , (effort or occupation) He has given us to do, (John 17:4, NAU)   There is no need to box that in, instead, let’s keep the theme of doing what you were born to do open to the Holy Spirit’s variations.  Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to direct our EXPECTANCY and determine how we paint a rose in our lifetime.

The Living Stone

big rockThe Living Stone

In Daniel’s writing, he sees Jesus as The Stone (Dan.2:35). By the time we get to the New Testament, Peter is referring to Jesus as the “Living Stone.” To whom coming, [as unto] a LIVING STONE, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, [and] precious… (1Pe 2:4). It is most interesting to note that the only ones “disallowing” the Stone is “men.” In Psalm 2 when “kings of the earth set themselves against the Lord” and “rulers took counsel together” against the Lord, God sat far above them in the heavens untouchable and laughed at those men who had no power to touch the all-powerful God of the heavens. It simply does not matter how many or who has “disallowed” the Living Stone. What does matter is that He “is chosen of God”.

Opposition + You + Holy Spirit = Victory


Opposition + You + Holy Spirit = Victory

Numerous times in the books of Judges, Samuel and Kings we read the phrase, “and the Spirit of the Lord came upon him (e.g. Jud 3:10).” Have you ever noticed that when we read that phrase that shortly after that, the whole set of circumstances turns completely around for the entire nation of Israel? If the Spirit of the Lord came upon one individual under the old covenant and completely intervened for an entire nation, what could happen when, under the new covenant, the Spirit of the Lord endues a body of believers? What will happen when we begin to factor in the Holy Spirit to everything that concerns us, our families, our churches and our nation? What will happen when we make room for Him, time for Him and actually expect Him to show up and do something through us? As a child in Sunday School, I was actually taught as truth that “one shall set a 1,000 to flight and two 10,000.” I was also taught with some degree of vehemence “greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.” Numerous times in public places, the Holy Spirit has used us in gifts of power that have demonstrated the love and power of God to individuals. Because we travel the same routes repeatedly, we have seen some of those people again and they remember that time we ministered to them. 

In Jud 3:10 the Spirit of the Lord came upon aged Othniel and saved the day for a  nation.  The equation was NOT: Israel’s oppression + aged Othniel. BUT it was: Israel’s oppression + aged Othniel + the Spirit of the Lord. The Holy Spirit is the key to our authority and His power is our enablement. Barnes says that “the Holy Spirit endued them with extraordinary wisdom, courage and strength.”
