As the people of God assemble today may their expectancy increase as they trust Almighty God to act more and more openly and publicly in their families and in this nation. May they pray bigger and ask bigger of this awesome God and may they fear Him and trust Him and follow after His Word and precepts. Ps.50:15,TPT—“Honor me by trusting in me in your day of trouble. Cry aloud to me, and I will be there to rescue you.”
KATHY—Our confidence comes from the faithfulness of God. His faithfulness is greater than anybody’s opinion or experience or track record. Our willingness to participate with Father should come more from TRUST than COURAGE because we trust that the Lord has POSITIONED us and GRACED us to see His will done to us and through us in this AWAKENING. Ps.118:8—“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”
MELISSA—Believing is about relationship with Jesus. Think about it, when Jesus walked the earth these signs were simply part of His nature. They flowed out of Him. Here is my definition of this kind of relationship just to be clear: Priority focus and attention, Guidance given and examples to live by, I trust Him with my life. So, my relationship with Jesus being priority should produce the same lifestyle He lived. I believe in Him, walk with Him, talk with Him, follow Him and signs simply flow out of the nature formed from that relationship. This completely changes the rules of engagement regarding anything I am faced with from here on out.
KATHY–In these times of trouble and civil unrest, the path to victory is . . . daily. We are to listen for God’s instructions . . . daily. We are to continue in the path of calling and purpose . . . daily. We are to trust the Lord with the battle . . . daily. There may be nights of weeping (Psa. 30:5) but joy comes with the morning when the Light reveals His perspective and His Original Intent. Rise with confidence in Him . . . daily. 2Chron.20:27-29—“Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, Jehoshaphat leading them, to Jerusalem with joy, for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies. 28 They came to Jerusalem with harps, lyres, and trumpets to the house of the Lord. 29 And the fear of God came upon all the kingdoms of those countries when they heard that the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel.” (Kathy will be speaking at Kingdom Congress 2023 Mar.1-3, 2023)
As the people of God assemble today may they take hold of God’s unchanging hand so that He may lead them as they press through the summer. May they trust Him daily and call on Him daily. Isa.41:10,TPT — “Do not yield to fear, for I am always near. Never turn your gaze from me, for I am your faithful God. I will infuse you with my strength and help you in every situation. I will hold you firmly with my victorious right hand.’
Melissa — Hey, you can fast fear! It’s true! Set your mind to it and watch how aware you become of fear in your life. It’s amazing how interwoven that stinker is. But when you become aware, you can do something about it. You can take your rightful place in the driver’s seat by forcing fear out. Ask the Holy Spirit to point it out, then you replace it with truth. You replace fear with God’s original intent for your life, thoughts of peace to give you an expected end (Jer. 29:11). This is not necessarily an overnight change, it takes time. It’s a process well worth it, but you can still be an agent of change in the middle of your process. How? By listening to the Father and doing/saying what He tells you. Ps.56:3-4,TPT–” But in the day that I’m afraid, I lay all my fears before you and trust in you with all my heart. 4 What harm could a man bring to me?With God on my side, I will not be afraid of what comes.The roaring praises of God fill my heartas I trust his promises.
Melissa — It came to me that to actually trust God meant to actually let go of needing to know the process of getting to an answer. I’ve never functioned like that. Unfortunately my M.O. has been to ask and believe for a God-outcome while all along fixating on my logic’s only conclusion as to how that could happen. That, my friends, will WEAR. YOU. OUT. In that moment it felt good, it felt right to let go, and something in me took a deep breath for the first time. (Melissa is leading worship and speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2021 – March 3-5.
