Welcome to 2013, I believe it is going to be an awesome year for His children.
It is going to be a year that many will receive CLARITY of purpose and understand better why they are on planet earth.
A year where Clarity will replace confusion, for our God is not the author of confusion (For God is not the author of confusion but of peace – 1 Cor 14:33).
Light will replace Darkness, for we serve a God who is Light (God is light and in Him is no darkness at all – 1 John 1:5), (Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path – Ps 119:105).
I pray this year we will hear and receive that word that will bring clarity to our situations and our eyes of understanding will be enlightened in greater measure (Eph 1:18).
During Jeremiah’s call and commission to the ministry in Jeremiah 1, God asked Jeremiah, what do you see – He said I see a branch of an almond tree, God said you have seen well, for I am ready to perform My Word (Jer 1:11-12). God is ready to do some incredible things this year as we obey him in pursuing that which He reveals and empowers us to do.
Many will receive from the Lord in 2013 fresh EMPOWERMENT to do His will. Jeremiah was empowered with:-
- His Presence (Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you Jer 1:8),
- His Word (Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth Jer 1:9), and
- His Enablement (See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant, Jer 1:10, For behold, I have made you this day A fortified city and an iron pillar, And bronze walls against …..Jer1:18).
Some will be surprised at the dimension the Lord is going to use them this year, those who have been working and labouring behind the scenes are going to come to the fore front.
God will orchestrate situations similar to David whereby he went from tending his father’s sheep to coming into the limelight by the empowerment of the Lord to kill Goliath. For many have been in the training room for long and this is the year of graduation. There is going to be greater clarity in different spheres of people’s lives, people will move from not being sure about a situation to being sure. Definitiveness will arise in people’s spirit.
Also the empowerment of the Lord will enable people to actually accomplish and complete projects that have been hanging in the air. The anointing to accomplish will rest on people in an unusual way, hence projects will be completed and ESTABLISHED.
At the end of the year, you will be able to put a tick next to your to do list that has been orchestrated by the Lord. The agenda of God (ministry / business or academics) that was like yoyo in past years will settle and begin to grow.
May we Hear/See/Know the will of God this year, be empowered to do the will of God and that His will be accomplished and established in our lives this year in Jesus name.
