Dear Understanding Ones:
Without understanding, you leave yourself open for the enemy to try to stop you from advancing. A passage that changed my life when I was 18 and caused me to get on course was Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”With this Scripture, God gave me the faith that He could redeem all of what had been lost in our family. In a year of new beginnings, I want each of us to be hearing, seeing and perceiving in new ways. That is why I ministered yesterday on “Lean Not on Your OWN Understanding: A Time to Thinc Diphruntly!” Be sure to watch the webcast replay to enter into an amazing time of worship and embrace the Spirit of Understanding to lead you in the year ahead.
In our Celebration Service, Holy Spirit continued to manifest in so many powerful expressions … with the Spirit of Prophecy, Word of Knowledge, deliverance and healing! This provided an amazing entry way for the revelation that Robert Heidler shared on “seeing beyond!” In this year of 5778, the angelic hosts of heaven play an ever-increasing role in our movement to victory, and it is imperative that we learn to move with them in new ways. Be sure to watch the webcast replay of Robert’s teaching on “Understanding Angels: Messengers Sent to Assist Us!”

Seeing in New Ways!
That picture I shared last week to “Thinc Diphruntly” was a great example of learning to understand in new ways. Another great example is from Brandon Larson. He and his wife, Kate, were doing a minor home renovation. A wall was knocked down to create a new entry between rooms, and a step was needed to complete the process. When the Wagners left Colorado, they brought the wood mantle from that home to Texas. Doris gave it the Larsons, and as you can see below, it fit perfectly.
Brandon shared what He heard from the Lord in this process: “The MANTLES of the previous generations are the STEPS through the NEW DOOR of your future! It is the season to step up and through the new door, and to build upon the foundations laid by the past generations. Let their mantles be your steps which secure your passing through the new doors. Don’t try to wear the mantles of those who have gone before, but let them steady your footing as you walk through and into the NEW.”
May each of you continue to “thinc diphruntly” and receive the mantles that will allow you to see and step through your next door!
