Happy New Year! I am very excited about what God has in store for 2017! Throughout the month of December, the Lord shared several things with me as it relates to the coming year. I am a person who truly values everything God speaks to me even if it's a word or simple phrase. Listed below, I share the things God gave me for the new year.
Words for 2017
On December 12, 2016, God gave me the word, “2017 will be the year of the open door.” On 12/31/16, one of the prophets at our church (Kevin Leal) confirmed this word as God had given him the same thing. I heard the Lord say this is the year to knock and the door will be open.
On December 18, 2016, the Lord dropped this simple phrase in my spirit during prayer, “About this time next year.” Later on December 22, 2016, he explained that “about this time” doesn’t mean it won’t happen until next year but that we will look back and say, “I remember this time last year, and oh what a change has come!”
December 23, 2016: Isaiah 55:12 – For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace. This is how you are leaving 2016.
December 31, 2016: God is going to move immediately in 2017. Expect it. (Earlier in the month, I was driving behind several cards whose driver did not use a turn signal. After it kept occurring, God spoke to me through it and said, “I am about to move suddenly and unexpectedly and will turn things around quickly!)
December 31, 2016: Drying tears in 2017. Don’t expect to cry this year like you did last year. I am turning tears of sorrow into tears of joy.
I'm encouraging each of you to make a list of all the things you want to see happen in 2017 and live each day in expectancy!
