Many who have sown in tears in 2014 are about to reap a harvest of joy in 2015. You haven't seen anything yet! Theme song for the year will be, “Every time I turn around he keeps making a way!”
This year, as you are faced with issues, assignments, etc., before you do anything, factor God into the equation. I call it the God factor. In Acts 10:38 it states, “How God anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and with power and he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” Don't focus on your limitations, focus on the greater one on the inside of you. (As God said in Joshua 1:9 he says to us today: “...do not be afraid, nor dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”)
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me
Zechariah 4:6 – Not by might, nor my power, but by my spirit says the Lord of hosts.
It is a year to get in position and listen intently to the voice of God. It will be extremely important to be where God wants you to be and keep your ear tuned to His voice. If you're out of place, you'll miss vital instructions. Make time to abide in His presence regularly. Don't allow distractions to keep you away from His presence. It is a year to fully align with God's plan for your life. If you see that there are areas that are not aligned, correct them immediately. As you align with His presence, He will give you the direction, protection and provision that you need. (See St John 15: 1-7)
A year to draw closer to Him by feeding on His Word and spending time in prayer like never before. A spirit of deception has been released, and it is extremely subtle. Therefore, to stay in truth, stay in His presence.
The worlds were framed by the Word of God. In the same manner, our words have creative power. Be mindful to speak right words out of your mouth this year over your life.
Hebrews 11:3 – By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible
Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Isaiah 57:19 – I create the fruit of the lips.
Job 22:28 – You will decree a thing, and it will be established for you.
Matthew 12:37 – For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.
Don't allow anything to shake or rattle you this year. Instead, roll every care and concern immediately over on the Lord and keep rolling!! As you cast your cares, you will continue to move and not get stuck where you are and lose traction.
I pray these words encourage you. I look forward to sharing His Word with you this year!
