Eyes Open to Discover

Have you noticed the myriad of challenges in current events that seem to have no solution? Have you wondered if there are any answers to the dilemmas you wrestle with in your life? As you face the unknown factors of challenges ahead of you, may your ears and eyes be opened to discover that there are still possibilities in God for solutions that no one has ever considered. May you go toward those challenges speaking in agreement with the creative acts of God in the Bible and in the earth. Let’s imitate Abraham: (Rom.4:17, Msg)  “…[Abraham] dared to trust God to do what only God could do: … with a word make something out of nothing.” We are praying you discover daily the possibilities and solutions in the risen Christ.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day.)

There Are Still Possibilities

As the people of God assemble today, may their ears and
eyes be opened to discover that there are still possibilities in
their God for solutions that no one has ever considered.
May they go forth speaking in agreement with the creative
acts of God in them and in the earth.


“…[Abraham] dared to trust God to do what only God could
do: … with a word make something out of nothing.” (Rom.4:17, Msg)


Speaking Solutions

Fall sceneIt is possible to call things something they are not and get into disagreement with God. It is also possible to call things into existence that have not yet existed to the glory of God. We must be cautious about getting into agreement with typically labeling people and situations and begin to speak what God’s Word and will are concerning them.

* I declare that we will take advantage of every opportunity to speak life and not death, to speak blessing and not cursing, to speak hope and not despair, to speak a way out for those who are in captivity instead of cursing their captivity, and to speak solutions instead of merely observing and reporting impossibilities.

Rom 4:17  “As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed.” (Amplified)

Don’t Murmur—Adjust

Don’t Murmur—Adjust

There are many disillusioned people woefully offering their opinion of the coming years. If we listen to their dire predictions, it will be easy to become disheartened. There are people preaching and prophesying out of their anger over current national and world events rather than proclaiming the Word of the Lord in spite of the events. (What ever happened to the immensely popular scripture that was quoted so often in the ’80’s? “…calleth those things which be not as though they were” Rom4:17) There are those sounding off because of elections and appointments that didn’t proffer certain results from last time. (Rather than standing firmly upon the never-failing Word of Almighty God, people will shift loyalties and not endure sound doctrine to get a quick fix like Esau did; and like Esau who forfeited his birthright for a quick-fix they will actually vote for someone whose views on life and whose political affiliations reek of unrighteousness. “A man is known by the company he keeps.”)

A murmuring Israel left Egypt and their murmuring manner turned a two-week walk into a forty year period of time that allowed the murmurers to die off before the coming generation could inherit the promised land. The murmurers died outside of facilitation. How sad that a generation had to wait for a preceding, unbelieving generation to die before they could receive promise. But, as always, there was a remnant and there will be a remnant, and the likes of Joshua and Caleb got to enjoy what the remainder of their generation chose not to walk in.

In this season, we must adjust. We won’t be able to wear a waitress’s uniform to put out a fire nor will we be able to wear shorts and T-shirt to work in the Arctic Circle. Tennis attire simply will not sustain someone who has discovered themselves in an Arctic environment. We can gripe about present circumstances or we can adjust. Murmurers can complain about not having leeks and garlic. (Compare: Num 11:1  “Now the people became like those who complain of adversity in the hearing of the LORD; and when the LORD heard it, His anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.” Also vv.2-10) We can gripe about Egypt, Babylon and the Philistines or we can use the weapons provided by the Holy Spirit and take over. The gifts and armament of the Spirit are not adequate just for holding on. They are sufficient to win. Jehovah’s people were never meant to just hold on. They have always been actively included in His purposes of victory.
