Happy New Year. Thank God for year 2015 has come and gone forever. Many things happened positively and negatively in 2015. Many opportunities were gained and many lost. There was plenty and also famine in some families and in individual lives. The point is, 2015 was pleasant to some and painful to some depending on what they made it. Painful could also be relative depending on what kind of pain. Some pains are enjoyable knowing surely that there are future gains. Some pains could be preparatory in capacity building for a glorious future. Some pains could also be learning some lessons from the game of life that was ignore previously in life.
THE GOOD NEWS: this could be your year of harvest depending on what you make of it. To make this year your year of plenty in the hub of recession will be a function of two things. 1. Your choices. 2. Commitment to your choices. Are you going to choose God or Satan? Are you going for sin or righteousness? Are you going to open your mind to opportunities when they come your way or you will close your mind? Are you ready, hungry and motivated to make a change or you are waiting for a change? Are you comfortable having food to eat or you want to be used by God to put food on the tables of others? Are you comfortable you can pay your children’s school fees or you want to make more to pay school fees of other children? Are you ready to become more, do more, to have more or you want to remain nonchalant to life game? The choice is yours! Whatever your choice, you must also have the courage to be committed to it. I counsel you to choose life, blessing and not death nor curse.
Forget the storms of yesterday, year 2015, forget it all. Remember the word of God that says: “Thou crowns the year (2016) with thy goodness and thy paths drop fatness.” Psalm 65:11. Would there be challenges in the midst of the year? Of course yes. But your choices will make a difference for you. The change in date does not change destiny. It is your decision, determination and diligence to pursue God’s purpose, God’s agenda for your life that that will give you the victory. MAKE YEAR 2016, A BELIEVING YEAR. Believe in God’s word and believe in the daily resources that He releases into your life to fulfill His purpose. The scriptures says; “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasures.” Job 36:11. God has a plan far above the minds of men. Therefore whatsoever the Lord says unto you this year and for the rest of your life- “DO IT”
Do yourself a favour this year. Focus on solutions, opportunities, productivity, God’s system and proven principles that men of old have used to come out of recession. Focus on your dreams and goals for the year. Don’t focus on dollars soaring above the naira, oil prices crashing, unemployment in the land, job loss, government challenges, climate change, international economy debacle, and the unrest within your borders. It is not possible to have a world without troubles. All you are require to do is to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in the midst of these troubles. In all your ways in 2016, acknowledge God, and He will direct your paths in 2016 and beyond.
When the purpose of life is not understood, life ends with regret. There is a purpose for 2016, fulfill it. Let every day count for time and eternity. Hit the ground running. We get paid for the value we put into time. We are limited by time and limited by energy. Do what will bring happiness and joy to you, your loved ones, your world and God your creator.
This year is the year. Because this year is a LEAP year, you will jump to riches in the hub of recession, you will be victorious where the devil is victimizing his captives, you will move from glory to glory in the midst of obscurity. It is your year of ELEVATION in the midst of demotion in Jesus name.
This is your portion in Year 2016: Psalm 19:1-2 “The heaven declare the glory of God and the firmament shows his handwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge.” Every day of the year 2016 will declare of God unto you. It will speak the glory of God. You will see the handiwork of God day and night. Congratulations!
Believe God Good Things Will Happen To You Today!
“This is the day, the year which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
My prayer for you is that; the angels of darkness, hardship, recession will not follow you this year. But God’s angels called Goodness and Mercy in Psalm 23:6 will follow you all through the 366 days in 2016, and for the rest of your life to perform the miracles that you need in Jesus name, amen
