Blessings to you and your family for 2018 and beyond! Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth and goodwill to all men! We praise your name, Lord.
As we begin this new year, we wash away the things of the past – stress, anxiety, disappointment, disease, corruption, hate, unforgiveness, setbacks, failures, regrets and chaos. And we look to Jesus for all new things He has in store for us – health, success, prosperity, wealth, peace, love, positivity, calm, wisdom and so much more.
Nehemiah 8:10 – Then Ezra told them, Go your way. Eat the fat, drink the sweet drink, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared. For this day is holy to our Lord. And be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold.
Guidance and Protection
Guide and protect us, Father God, in these uncertain and perilous times. Remind us to not worry about what is happening around us, but to trust You. For You are our Father, to shield us, clothe us and feed us.
We know that the joy of the Lord is our strength and, as we meditate on Your Word, saturate our hearts. Teach us to confess what the word says so we can see the manifestation of our prayers. Your word will not return to You void of fulfillment, but it will accomplish everything for which You sent it.
Romans 13:13?-?14 -Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.
Trusting the Lord
Heavenly Father, we thank you. Thank you for the many wonderful gifts you have given us and for the blessings we have not yet received. We trust You Lord, our beacon of light, our hope, our provider, our all in all.
These things I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, So Be It, Amen and Amen.
2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore if any person is ingrafted in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
