Merry New Year to you all.
2016 going into 2017 for many people was like a caterpillar morphing into a cocoon. It has been a season of transformation as God was pruning us in readiness for whats to come this season. Not only that, but many of us were also preparing ourselves in readiness for what God wants to do in 2018. This process is called Metamorphosis (the process of transformation from an immature form to maturity) Thank God for the hibernation period in 2017 because it was our time to prepare and now is our time.
2018 is our year to soar and fly like a butterfly. God has opened doors and released enablers who are lined up in readiness for you and I to achieve and overcome with ease this year. Today 1 January 2018, is a new day that is the beginning of possibility. A day leading into a year of favour, therefore everything and anyone that held you back will no longer hinder what God is about to do in your life.
However, God’s word has clauses and one of those clauses is always spoken of but never fully grasped:
Matthew 6:33 King James Version (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Many people are in the habit of quoting this scripture but miss out the part that says ‘You have to seek His righteousness’ not just his kingdom. Not only do many of us ignore certain bits of His word but we also forget to heed important advise and direction such us;
2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
We have to turn from wicked ways, humble ourselves, seek His face and pray so that He can hear us. We have to stop being our own hindrance because of our actions. God wants to bless each and everyone of us. His ways are GOOD and his thoughts toward us also GOOD.
Remember, it may have seemed slow in 2017 and maybe even seemed as though nothing was moving. However, that is okay! Start stirring your faith up and watch God finish what he has began.
Happy New Year. It is time to soar.
