As the new year approaches, I want to remind you that Godâ€™s plan is for you to prosper, and be successful in every area of your life. Some people might say, â€œI donâ€™t see how you can say that after the year Iâ€™ve had, with the economy like it is. All the experts are saying itâ€™s going to get worse before it gets better.â€ That may be true in general, but it doesnâ€™t have to be true for believers in Christ.
Friend, we are connected to a supply line that will never run dry. Donâ€™t be talked into having a bad year. The economy is not your source. God is your source, and He wants to bless you beyond your normal income. He likes to do unusual things. He can bless you with an explosive blessing! That means, all of a sudden, unexpectedly, something happens that takes you to a new level. Old limitations are broken, and suddenly, you find yourself further than you ever dreamed! Hallelujah!
Today, separate yourselves from the system of the world, and set your heart and mind on the Word of God. When you meditate on His promises, and follow His commands, you will experience these explosive blessings. When you put Him first, you will be strong and stable, and whatever you do will prosper, now and in the year to come!
â€œThat person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not witherâ€”whatever they do prospers.â€™(Psalm 1:3, NIV)
Pray With Me
Emmanuel, thank You for Your Word which brings me hope for the year ahead, and lights my path, and directs my heart today. Father, I submit every area to You and put You first always. God, teach me to rely on You â€“ the source of all things good. Show me Your ways, so I can walk with You, and experience every blessing You have in store for me, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
