Jesus said, “If you are able to believe, all things are possible to the ones believing.” (Mk.9:23) No sooner were tThe words out of His mouth than the father cried, “Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!” That may sound weak in terms of faith, but that was the beginning of repentance as the man’s thinking was changing. Repentance brings Kingdom power and provision into reach. “Repent, for the Kingdom is at hand.” (Matt. 4:17). So, when the power and provision of the Kingdom of God seems beyond our reach, it is time to rethink something. (Third excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)

“Why are we in this present mess and why is God allowing it?” That is basically what Gideon was asking. “How soon they forget”. Gideon was asking that question in Jud.6:13 but in verse one it plainly states, “The children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord…”. Perhaps one reason humans let their “forgetter” work so efficiently is because we pretty much feel that we are not accountable for what we don’t remember. Yet, consequences still follow. (2Cor.7:9b, Amp) ”…your sorrow led to repentance [and you turned back to God]; for you felt a grief such as God meant you to feel, so that you might not suffer loss in anything…” We are praying you discover daily that Holy Spirit is bringing things to your memory so you might not suffer loss in anything.

As the people of God assemble today, may they pray over the coming year with hearts of faith and expectancy and may they be led throughout the whole year by the hand of the Lord, and turn not from the path of His sure Word.
”They will come with weeping [in repentance and for joy], And by [their] prayer [for the future] I will lead them; I will make them walk by streams of waters, On a straight path in which they will not stumble,” (Jer.31:9, Amp)
(KG) Cain didn’t recognize the threat on his porch until God told him, “Cain, Sin is crouching at your door.” God was not saying, “You have a ticket to hell on the porch, Boy.” God wasn’t writing him off. He was warning Cain that he had a personal issue on his doorstep that would trip him up. It was a behavior pattern of messing up and then being offended about it. That thing would crouch on his porch and dictate his life if he didn’t master it. Cain had a call to repentance, a call to think differently and change so that he could overcome a contradiction before it overcame him, but he didn’t and it did. Cain’s thinking did not change and the contradicting behavior pattern of offense and anger drove him into a rage and he killed his brother.

(KG) I came to a fuller understanding of biblical repentance meaning “to consider things differently and change your thinking”. My understanding was shifting drastically and I was beginning to think differently. That caused a passion for life and purpose and the future to stir my daily life. In all that process, I was REPENTING and didn’t even know it. Now when I hear “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand,” it means, “Kathy, find out where you need to change your thinking if-and-when anything that God has seems beyond your reach. Getting beyond contradictions of my misbeliefs opened new horizons! I realized I was born again into this Kingdom that was not just “somewhere over the rainbow” someday, and I could have never walked in my life purpose without those changes. They were key understanding for me being able to do what I was born to do.
