Happy New Year!

What will the New Year Hold? The bible tells us in Matthew 9:17 -"And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine is stored in new wineskins so that both are preserved." (NLT)

The Lord gave me a word a couple of months ago concerning the New Year.  He (God) spoke these words:  This will be the year of Transformation and Transition.  The Father wants His people to transform into His likeness this year so that we may proceed into what He has for us.  Many of us will transition into new roles, new places, new adventures and I believe the Lord is speaking, that for to long we have been dragging the baggage from the old into the new.  We never seem to proceed forward because of the weight of the old.

 

It is time now to get in position and let the Spirit of the Almighty change us through and through.  The bible declares in Romans 12: 1-5- I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service

(2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the revewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God

(3) for I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith

(4) For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,

(5) So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. (NKJV)

 

My prayer is that this will be a year of pressing into the Presence of God and movig forward, not allowing the standards of the world to distract or distort our view of who God is; but that we, His people will stay on course and listen to His voice.  If we don't allow God to change our way of thinking, our way of living then our work and everthing we say we represent will be in vain.  Please don't allow last years baggage to enter into this New Season.  I love you all with the love of Christ, and pray that each and everyone have a blessed and prosperous New Year!

Happy New Year!

Time waits for no one, 2013 seem to have zoomed by so quickly that we could hardly catch our breath and it was gone. I pray this New Year will not be a year of wasting time. God is holding us accountable for what we do with our " Time." People of God, let this year be a time of harvesting souls for the King and the Kingdom; time is running out!

I would like to start by saying Happy New Year to All.  I pray this year would be a year of joy, peace, and much production.  What do I mean by much production? My prayer for the body of Christ is that this would not be a year where we would just talk about what we are going to do or  what we need to do but, that we would allow our fruit trees to display the fruit we so talk about.

 
This will not be a year where we can afford to waste time on things that are not worth wasting time on.  We truly have to be about our Father's business.  The word of God tells us that the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. (Matthew 9:37)  (John 9:4) tells us: I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 
 
Our time is very important, and when wasted it's like we have wasted precious ointment. I would employ each of you this year to "Stay Focused" on the assignment that God has placed before you; don't be moved by circumstances or problems, they will come and guess what?  they will go; your tests are only for a Season.  God has every situation in your life in His control, He knows what's best for you.  I ask the Lord several months ago why is it that His people seem to be giving up, and the answer was: They have taken their eyes off Me and put their eyes on their problems.   
 
2014 is going to prove to be a year of great possibilities if we stay focused, it will be a year of many test, trials and tears, but, I hear the God who is our Banner saying, Stay Focused and forever let your Light Shine......
