We dare not expose our obediences to sabotage with our doubt and unbelief. I mean, even after the fact, we can go away analyzing and criticizing and speculating for months about its success to the point of concluding it was a failure or worthless effort. Unfortunately, the harvest crop can be tall and to the point of the ears forming or being almost complete, but our conclusions were all the thief needed to kill, steal and destroy. It takes as much trust with the after effects as it does to obey in the beginning, so let’s rest in the confidence that He will always be Lord of the harvest. —Kathy Gabler
(Melissa Gabler)— Have you ever had times when a revelatory nugget pops up, then within days you hear the same nugget from other sources? That’s been happening as of late and I’m learning to pay attention to those! Following is one such instance that has been not only ringing in my ear, but answering some of those seemingly unanswerable questions. While in conversation this was quoted to me from a book, “God hides some things for specific times so that the enemy cannot destroy them.” That stuck with me, and a couple of days later I read a quote from someone else that was expressing the exact same thought! Well, that really hit me between the eyes, especially because these came from trusted sources. It was an “Are you listening?” moment. I began meditating on God hiding something for a specific time, and it felt like this statement began filling cracks in my understanding. If God cloaks something for a time, it is not only to hide it from the devil and his destructive minions, but it is also to hide it from our own self sabotage. Yes, the devil and self-sabotage are two different things. However, the devil LOVES stoking the flames of self sabotage! All we have to do is let our fears and concerns fall out of our mouths like kindling for the enemy’s threatening bonfire. So many times we make the devil’s job so easy. (MELISSA is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2019. This is an excerpt from one of her articles.)

(Kathy) Interference hits circumstances with intent to rob or sabotage. Harassment aims for emotions and attitudes. Both are ultimately aiming to keep us from crossing thresholds and getting to fulfillment. Interference usually becomes obvious at some point, but harassment often needs to be discerned, especially if it is to be countered before it contaminates. Interference and harassment are nothing new but their pattern of targeting crucial thresholds is an equipping discovery that brings focus and clarity.

(Melissa G.) Because of Father’s mercy there is ALWAYS opportunity to live Plan A. How? By becoming aware of how plan B is in effect in your life, and by letting Him process you out of it. Sometimes our answers don’t come to immediate manifestation simply to keep us from self-sabotaging the outcome. When God does a work it is complete. If we have broken places that would cause the answer we are looking for to eventually fall apart (self-sabotage), He starts repairing the broken places first. His intent is for us to be whole. When we ask, He hears. This may be why you seemingly have not received the answer you have been looking for. God is faithfully and lovingly repairing the cracks in your foundation so the answer you’re waiting on completes the whole. He gives the answers to us as we process out of what is trapping us.

(Kathy G.) Though Satan could not sabotage The Only Begotten Son’s relationship with Father, he obviously hasn’t quit trying to sabotage sons of God. It gives us an edge to realize that devils are not geniuses nor mind-readers, but they can smell “wilderness” on us. Sons are most vulnerable to be devoured when they are in a wilderness condition. We are simply more easily shaken when we are in a wilderness place of feeling desolation, loneliness, abandonment, confusion, oppression and depression. The wilderness is a low place with no way out, a smothering place with no wind of change or breath of hope stirring. The issues of our own soul usually drive us into wilderness conditions, but Jesus was led by the Spirit into His wilderness experience. That indicates some wildernesses are God plans for the process, but whatever the drive or draw, wilderness times are part of the process of moving “from glory to glory.” The good news is that Father intends they work out for our good. As mature sons, we can be confident that coming to glory means coming to a God outcome, and it is Father’s will that wildernesses end up positioning and changing us to fit promise and be equipped for purpose.

Your Home #30—May the Lord divert sabotage away from your family
that would affect your credit, your purchasing ability and your good name.
”So when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat [of Judah], they said,
“It is the king of Israel!” So they turned to fight against him, but Jehoshaphat
called out [for God’s help], and the Lord helped him; and
GOD DIVERTED THEM away from him.” (2Chron.18:31, Amp)
