In Mark 9, when Jesus and Peter, James and John came down from the Mount of Transfiguration experience, they found the other disciples with a crowd gathered and a man that said he’d brought his son for deliverance. The father explained that his son was possessed with a spirit which made him mute and seized him and slammed him to the ground while causing him to foam at the mouth and grind his teeth and stiffen out. Then he added, “Your disciples couldn’t cast it out.” Jesus had been training the twelve to be sons who understood Kingdom Power, but they didn’t seem to “get it.” (First excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)
Have you ever had intentions to get something accomplished on your day off but each time you walk into a room or see an object, you get sidetracked and never reach your goal? May the Lord keep us with His Word and His Wisdom that we not become convoluted with side-tracking issues and that we not clutter up our purpose and focus with relationships that God has not ordained. (2Cor.6:14, Amp) “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them…, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness?” We are praying you discover daily that you are staying on track with the God-intentions for your life.

May our Lord do restorative works in you so that what the enemy meant for evil may be turned to defeat him; so that what the enemy did to prevent your gifts and energies and capabilities from being released, might be totally redeemed and come forth as a glorious praise to God as others receive and are blessed from that work being done in you.
“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.” (Gen.50:20, NASB)
As the people of God assemble today, may their hearts be filled with desire and expectancy to show forth the power of God as well as His words and principles of truth, doctrine and theology. May the naysayers that oppose and argue against the Spirit of Christ be speechless as they hear of and witness the powerful Word of God in action as lives are redeemed, bodies healed and signs and wonders loosed that point back to Jesus the risen Christ.
The Kingdom of God came into the earth through the Person of Jesus. Jesus (1) comes to earth, (2) learns obedience as a servant, pleases the Father in His obedience and, in so doing, (3) brings the authority, the rule, the reign of the Father into history and (4) experiences victory in every confrontation with the kingdom of darkness. God’s rule and reign are today evidenced through delegated authority that proceeds from Jesus’ all-inclusive authority (Mt 28:18). Just as God’s rule has entered the earth in history through the Person of Jesus, His rule enters the earth today as His authority flows through His sons who are being made in the image of Jesus.

A friend of mine wrote a song that says, “What if we are the awakening that we’ve been waiting for?” Could it be that God is hoping that we will think big enough and offer ourselves to be some person’s or some community’s or even some nation’s hope? Rather than just going through life hoping for someone else to be what we need or hoping someone else will give us a break, what if we met a need or gave someone else a break that helped launch them into their destiny? May the people of God propel many people forward in the purposes of God. (Isa.35:3, Amp) “Encourage the exhausted, and make staggering knees firm.” We are praying you discover daily that you are giving hope to others so they can succeed.

The gate in Matt. 7 is not narrow because God put the posts really close together. The gate is narrow by virtue of the things that are about it. If you will hear it, I declare over you that those things that have made the gate “narrow” by virtue of their presence will not be the obstacles in the coming year that they were in the past year. They will not be those obstacles because you will not allow them to be. You will not give them the place they have had in your life in the past. (Seventh excerpt from Marty’s article “Doors and Self-Government”)
